Surely, you have heard all the buzz on the recent launch of the new Weight Watchers Freestyle. The program is still based on the science-backed Smart Points system that encourages more fruits, vegetables, and lean protein and less sugar and unhealthy fats, but with WW Freestyle, smart decisions are made simpler.

New to the program are more than 200 zero-point foods—eggs, skinless chicken breast, fish and other seafood, corn, beans, peas, and more—that you don't have to portion or track. And with new rollovers, you can transfer extra Smart Points to another day, keeping the program flexible and livable.

To learn more, view the on-demand Introduction to WW Freestyle webinar conducted by Weight Watchers' chief scientific officer, Gary Foster, who talks about the new regimen, which was under development for more than a year. According to company officials, clinical trial results are the best ever seen for a Weight Watchers program.

If you're excited about this new approach to eating, you can take advantage of the partnership that the university has with the company to offer benefits-eligible employees 50 percent off Weight Watchers Online and Weight Watchers Monthly Pass for community meetings.
