WW Assessment Test. Which Plan is the Best for You? (With printable questionnaire)

myWW assessment test calendar on a clip board

We heard before the release of the new plans that there was going to be an assessment that would guide you to which plan is best for you. Well if you are a current or former member of WW you don't get to take that assessment. This has been frustrating to several members and that frustration can be seen across the net in various WW groups.

Which plan fits you best?

Barrett Pastor put together a quick 15 question quiz that will help you pick where to start. Note: this is not an official WW quiz this quiz was put together and tested by Barrett Pastor a long-time WW member, Youtuber and a great friend. Don't worry if you pick a plan that doesn't seem to be working for you, you can switch to one of the other plans in the app with just 3 clicks. Easy Peasy.

Barrett Pastor

Why would you listen to Barrett Pastor? Why do I listen to her? Barrett has been doing WW for over 2 years now and has lost an amazing 40 pounds and only has 10 more to get to her goal. It is a lifestyle for her as it is for all of us. She talks about WW in her household daily as we all do. I do the cooking in my household and Barrett does the cooking in hers so for those of us who are the “cooks” it is important to know which plan is best for our weight loss goals.

WW Testing the Test

Barrett has been testing the programs out for 2 months on herself, as you know some of the details of the program were leaked early, so she started trying them out and has come up with a 15 question quiz to help you determine which program will work for you. We don't recommend anything we don't try out for ourselves. From kitchen equipment to this test we try everything out first to save you the time and sometimes money ๐Ÿ™‚

Does the Assessment Test Work?

She gave the quiz to family and friends to check to see how well the quiz worked. The result everyone she gave the test to said that yes that is the plan they would choose. Barrett even gave the test to non-WW members to see how they would answer and the results were astounding. Everyone picked the plan that corresponded with what they came up with during the test.

This is the plan you have been looking for!

    Hi I did the assessment and I have equal number on each plans. I have 5 Aโ€™s 5Bโ€™s 5Cโ€™s. What that means? I can be in either one? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. smileyspoints

      You are a great candidate for WW and you will do well:) Make sure you pay attention to your body and how you feel while doing the plan. Your body will tell you which plan is best ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Alison

        I got 6 green and 6 blue and 3 for purple. So I guess I’m between green and blue?

    2. Same here. Guess I could choose any plan. I hated freestyle so I think Iโ€™ll go with green which seems like the plan before freestyle.

    3. A.Copeland

      Same here!

  2. Beth

    I did the assessment and i picked mostly B’s and 1’s, now I’m really confused!

  3. Karen Joost

    I got 7- 2’s or B’s, 6-1’s or A’s and 2-C’s. Dies this mean I’m between blue and green?

    1. smileyspoints

      Let me know your journey and how you are doing. Is purple working for you or are you switching to another plan?

  4. Ranee Robinson

    Mine is close between green and blue. There were a couple questions that could got 2 different. The first way I did it was with alot of back and forth but edged out green. If I chose the other answer it edged out blue. I lost 1 pound first week on purple. gonna give it a couple more weeks

  5. Sharon White

    How do I change back to blue

  6. Jennifer Baker

    I had success with ww freestyle and lost 60 lbs. I went off it to see if I could maintain the loss myself and in six months, stayed with in 5lbs. Tried Ww again for another 6 months and lost maybe 5 lbs. switched to keto and love it but havenโ€™t lost or gained. Thinking of starting back with WW; which new plan closely follows the no sugar, very low carb, healthy fats style of eating? Tried the assessment but it wasnโ€™t helpful. Thank you.

    1. smileyspoints

      In my opinion, WW is low-fat but not low carb. They calculate the carbs when assigning point values to different foods. In your situation, I would use iTrackBites Keeping it, Keto. For WW I would go green as that as the fewest zero point food options. Let me know what you decide to do ๐Ÿ™‚ Here is a link to my iTrackBites post. https://smileyspoints.com/how-does-itrackbites-work/

  7. Kate

    I’m not sure why there is a need to translate numbers to letters AB&C. I just added the number of 1s, 2s, and 3s. I got 4 1s, 9 2s, and 2 3s so am strongly a Blue (2s). This is a great assessment, I will look on YouTube for Barrett.

  8. WendyM

    I got 6 #1,6 #3,4#2 I assume I should be on the purple plan , is that the plan from before it all changed ?

    1. smileyspoints

      Blue is the same as the freestyle plan. That is the plan from before. Purple is like Freestyle Plus. On Purple, you get more free foods. I hope this helps.

    What plan is similar to the Mediterranean diet. Iโ€™m now doing carb comcious

    1. smileyspoints

      The Mediterranean diet can be done alongside the new myWW eight loss plans. All three plans can be tailored to work with a Mediterranean lifestyle. You may have heard that the Mediterranean diet is one of the healthiest ways to eatโ€”but most people arenโ€™t exactly sure what it entails. Here is an exert from the myWW website that may clear things up a bit ๐Ÿ™‚
      What’s on the menu?
      Lots of vegetables, tubers, fruits, nuts and seeds, legumes, whole grains, fish and seafood, meat and poultry, eggs, dairy, herbs and spices, and healthy fats; limited natural sugars; and water, tea, coffee, and red wine for beverages.
      Like the sound of that?
      Thatโ€™s because, like WW, the Mediterranean diet is a lifestyle, not a โ€œdiet.โ€ WW uses the latest in nutritional and behavioural science to guide you toward smarter food choices like these, so you can feel your best and build healthy habits that last. I hope this helps you ๐Ÿ™‚

    I got 9 threes, 4 ones and 4 twos. Obviously, I’m a 3, carb addict, but am afraid I will overeat. What to do, what to do???

    1. smileyspoints

      I too am a carboholic ๐Ÿ™‚ I use the Weight Watchers green plan as that has been what has worked the best for me. I also watch the zero point foods I eat. I created a list of the zero point foods with protein and calorie info. I must watch the carbs I eat so that I can continue to lose weight. I would suggest buying a journal and keeping track. This is the only way I can look back and see what I was eating when I have a great week vs a not so great week. Here are the links to journals and to the zero point lists for you. I hope this helps.

  12. Mary K

    I got 6 – 1’s; 5 – 2’s; and 4 – 3’s. What plan would be best for me?

    1. Green or Blue I would go Blue first as most of my readers have had the best success on the Blue plan which is the freestyle plan. I hope this helps. Track your progress for 2-3 months and then if it isn’t working try green. Make sure you give the plan time to work and make sure you are working the plan. I hope this helps. Let me know if I can help you in any way.
