Why do some recipes on your website show a link to Points® values, while others do not?



In November 2022, WW launched its new Points® plan, replacing previous plans like PersonalPoints™ and SmartPoints™. We’ve updated many of our recipes to include links to the newest plan’s values, however some of the older recipes have not yet been updated.

All recipes that are sent out in the Hungry Girl daily emails will include links to the current Points® values. To sign up for the daily emails and receive the latest recipes, click here.

Why do I sometimes get a different value when I plug your recipe’s nutritional info into the WW calculator?



We follow the same method as WW: using the brand's recipe builder as opposed to the food calculator. Many foods have a value of zero and remain zero in recipes. Recipe values are determined by adding up the values of the individual ingredients, with some exceptions.

When it comes to recipes, why is there a link to Points® values? Why aren’t the values included with the recipes?



Because the WW plan changes from time to time, including a link to the official WW Points® value ensures you receive the most accurate information at that time.

Why don’t the links to WW Points® values work for me in Canada?



We use the United States version of the WW website to calculate point values. Unfortunately, this may not work for those with WW accounts outside the United States.

We may receive affiliate compensation from some of these links. Prices and availability are subject to change.

We may have received free samples of food, which in no way influences whether these products are reviewed favorably, unfavorably, mentioned with indifference, or mentioned at all. Click for more about our editorial and advertising policies.
