The Weight Watchers PointsPlus program differs from the older points-based program, because the daily minimum number is higher and each food has a whole-number point value. Besides the daily points, participants have a weekly allowance of 49 PointsPlus values. Some use the PointsPlus values for extra food each day, while others save up for special occasions. The 49 PointsPlus values are optional; participants are not required to hit both their daily and weekly point allotments, notes Weight Watchers.
