In my experience there wasn't much benefit in doing both. when I was doing WW online I pretty much just used that. Their site seems much easier to calculate points and since it's their ww site, it's all centered around their philosophies. Starting this past January, (to save money) I canceled my ww online membership and switched to just using FatSecret. Here, I found it's easier to count calories and just make healthier food choices. (That's pretty much what ww is too.) I've continued to lose weight and really enjoy this site. Good luck!

I'm not really doing the WW online as I'm tracking my food here, but I do have the membership and go to meetings. I like the weekly accountability of going to weigh-ins and I really like going to the meetings. I don't see much of a benefit of paying just for the online portion if you've got this great free tool here.

I think that counting calories is easier than counting points. All that free food and the low-fat/high-fiber philosophy just drives me a little crazy. Especially from someone with celiac disease who can't eat all that pre-packaged food (which is what the program is tailored for).

Chart for daily water intake
I think it's weight related - not a standard of so many glasses. Plus some people then add in activity level and environment variables. There's tons of calculators online.
