The WW Points Allowance Calculator helps individuals determine their daily points allowance based on their weight, height, age, and activity level. This calculation is essential for managing weight effectively by tracking daily food intake.

## Formula of WW Points Allowance Calculator

To calculate the WW (Weight Watchers) points allowance, use the following formulas:

For Men: Daily Points Allowance = 10 + (6.23 x weight in pounds) + (12.7 x height in inches) – (6.8 x age in years)

For Women: Daily Points Allowance = 10 + (4.35 x weight in pounds) + (4.7 x height in inches) – (4.7 x age in years)

Additionally, adjust for the activity level:

Sedentary: Activity Factor = 1.2

Lightly Active: Activity Factor = 1.375

Moderately Active: Activity Factor = 1.55

Very Active: Activity Factor = 1.725

The final formula to calculate the daily points allowance considering the activity factor is:

Daily Points Allowance = (BMR x Activity Factor)

Where BMR is the Basal Metabolic Rate calculated using the gender-specific formulas provided above.

## Pre-Calculated Daily Points Allowance Table

Here is a table with common pre-calculated daily points allowances for quick reference. Use your weight, height, age, and activity level to find your daily points allowance.

Weight (lbs) | Height (in) | Age (years) | Sedentary | Lightly Active | Moderately Active | Very Active |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

150 | 65 | 30 | 1,500 | 1,750 | 2,000 | 2,250 |

180 | 70 | 40 | 1,800 | 2,100 | 2,400 | 2,700 |

200 | 72 | 50 | 2,000 | 2,300 | 2,600 | 3,000 |

## Example of WW Points Allowance Calculator

Let’s calculate the daily points allowance for a 35-year-old woman who weighs 160 pounds, is 65 inches tall, and is moderately active.

First, calculate the BMR: BMR = 10 + (4.35 x 160) + (4.7 x 65) – (4.7 x 35) BMR = 10 + 696 + 305.5 – 164.5 BMR = 847

Next, adjust for activity level: Daily Points Allowance = 847 x 1.55 Daily Points Allowance = 1,313

So, her daily points allowance is 1,313.
