If you're trying to lose weight, then you already know there are countless programs to choose from and round-the-clock diet fads. So, it can be pretty hard to suss out which plan will work best for you. But tons of dieters are sizing up two verrrry popular plans in particular: Noom versus WW (previously Weight Watchers).

While WW has been around for over 50 years, touted by celebs like Oprah and Kate Hudson, Noom is relatively fresh on the scene, with a little over 10 years under its belt. But despite it being a legacy versus newbie situation, the programs do share a major pro: "Both of them are based on this principle that no food is off limits," explains New York City-based nutritionist Samantha Cassetty, RD. "They're both aimed at helping to steer you towards healthier foods, but also are flexible about including the foods that you like."
