WW vs. Noom: How We Help You Lose Weight

No calorie counting. No restrictions. No good or bad foods. WW teaches you the how and the why behind weight loss with real tools and expert coaching.

How WW is different

WW is not restrictive and not a diet

  • There are no good or bad foods, no red or green lights. With WW, all food is on the menu—and we mean everything.

We don't count calories

  • So you don’t need to track every food. Our PersonalPointsTM system nudges you to make healthier food choices that you will actually want to eat.

You won’t be hungry

  • WW gives you a flexible PersonalPoints Budget that matches your life and preferences—not a small number of calories to eat that leaves you hungry and grumpy.

Not just psychology articles

  • We are here to teach—not preach. That’s why we go beyond the “why” of weight loss to the “how” with our science-backed behavior change techniques that teach you actionable tools to lose weight and build healthy habits that stick. Learn the how of weight loss with the WW app and get support from our expert Coaches who are here to support you and keep you focused on your goals.

Former Noom customer Coralie P. says:

“The [PersonalPoints] make losing weight better. The science behind it somehow just works way better than counting calories.[...].

WW allows you to have whatever you want but encourages you to get the bulk from [ZeroPoint] foods with 0 guilt! This leaves more room for indulgences.”

What can you eat?

WW’s science-backed program gives you a personalized PersonalPointsTM Budget. A PersonalPoints value takes complex nutrition and distills it down to one easy-to-understand number to make choosing what to eat simpler. No food is off-limits.

For extra flexibility, you'll get a custom list of ZeroPoint™ foods—which can include chicken, avocado, whole-grain pasta, and more!—that you don't have to track or measure. This gives you freedom in what you eat, so you’re never missing out.

On Noom, you will count calories, but foods are grouped into a traffic-light system of green, yellow, and red to guide your food choices. Similarly, no food is off limits, but you are guided to track every food.
