    Are there major differences between the different plans? I was just looking around at handbooks and
    there are all these different titles, Time To Eat (or something approximating to that), Flexpoints
    etc etc. How different are these plans and why isn't there just one WW routine? Thanks.

    Hi, WW has had many plans over the years. they seem to make some changes every few years or so. The
    current plan is Flex points. All of the plans have worked. WW sometimes changes to attract new
    people, but I feel that each change has made the program a little better than before. Some people
    adapt to the change; others stick to the plan that they were following.

    There are three (or maybe four) different plans and calculations around the
    world. Here's a quick summary:

    USA - Currently using FlexPoints. Calculate points using fat, fibre and calories (kilojoules).

    UK - Currently using Time to Eat. Calculate points using saturated fat and calories.

    Europe - I'm not sure what the program name is, but points are calculated using total fat and
    calories (no fibre).

    Australia/NZ - Switched over to Time fo Success a couple of weeks ago. The new program calculates
    points using saturated fat and calories, however the calculation doesn't seem to be the same as
    the UK one.

    Different countries have different plans due to the level of nutritional information available on
    food labelling. For example, Australia switched from using total fat to saturated fat because about
    8 months ago it was legislated that manufacturers had to show the breakdown of fats on labels. There
    are probably other reasons also, but that explaination is best left to WW :)

    I hope this helps clarify some things. It's best to pick one progam and stick with it, otherwise
    you'll get very confused!
