I will try to update my review as I see weight loss, but I am on week 5. And this isn’t about weight loss (any longer) for me. Don’t get me wrong, I have quite a bit of weight to lose, but this app is helping me change small habits one day at a time and it’s doing more for my brain than my body right now. My body is benefiting though...I am moving more and making better food choices. I have not lost much weight yet, but my mind is definitely changing and I truly believe that weight loss and a healthy body is in my near future. If you want to try something out to make you feel better about your relationship with food and make small changes for permanent change....this is the app. It’s a lot of small daily tasks and readings, but doesn’t take too much time per day and I personally like to read more about why we do things so that I understand why I want to do them. The goal is achievable lifetime habits and I feel like I am erasing 30+ years of bad habits a little each day. Love the community aspect too...I feel like we motivate each other to keep logging in each day! Coaches check in once a week to create goals and community coaches are usually poking into the group every couple days. I think it’s less about depending on a coach and more about believing in yourself, but the coaches are there as a bonus!
I’ve been dieting on and off since my teen years and I just didn’t want to live that life anymore. Noom offered a balanced perspective full of sound advice and well-researched science. I lost a bit of weight and more importantly I feel like I’m in control (and happy with) my own day-to-day. I’m healthier and feel totally free of the yo-yo diet loop. Lots of great support in my chat group and a fantastic curriculum meant new perspectives and sustainable healthy habits. It was 100% worth it for me. Oh small note to the developers - I agree with others, the app could use a little work. It took up a ton of space on my phone (over a half gig!) and the messaging portion could be easier to use (better thread management, the ability to edit messages, etc...) but overall really nice product! Very well-designed UI/UX-wise and easy to use :) Also for others researching, a couple of notes: it’s definitely not a “fast results” kind of program; or at least it wasn’t for me. It’s more about changing your whole lifestyle, which takes time. Also the coach was not super helpful for me - they don’t respond in a very personalized way (was wondering if it was a bot for a little while) and only check in semi-regularly, so if that’s a big priority for you, I would look elsewhere. It’s more of a reminder, “keep you on track” tool than actual personalized guidance, which was a little disappointing.
I was skeptical when I first started the trial. I have been through Weight Watchers, at least five times in my adult lifespan. It’s a good program, it teaches you how to eat. But at this stage of my life it did not fit into my busy schedule. I did not have time to work around the limited meetings in my area to weigh in. Roughly a month into this program, I have lost almost 10 pounds without much inconvenience, LOL-if that’s a good description. The things I mark it down for are a limited data base when you go to scan in a food to add it to your daily intake. That will improve with time. (I’m certainly helping, you can choose to input your food info as you go). I’d have to say that these people are on your case 24/7 to help keep you on track. You also have access to multiple other people who are doing this at the same time you are. I think the message board could be organized in a better fashion, to be more user-friendly and to allow you to have access to multiple threads at one time without being confused. All in all, I’m going to stick with this because it fits into my life at this time. It addresses psychological issues as to why people choose to eat what they eat, and why they overeat the wrong things. You are given the tools, should you choose to use them, to deal with these situations that affect those of us who have always had a complicated relationship with food.
I like this app but the developers could make it much more user friendly. First, I need to be able to see my food diary without trying to log a meal. There needs to be a tab called Food Diary and another called Analytics where you can see your “colors” as they develop across the day. Currently, you can only see the diary or macro breakdown if you are about to log a food. Sometimes you want to see your progress without entering food, to analyze your data to plan ahead, but you can’t with this app. Also, I like to log ahead — I do this in myfitnesspal — if I know my work day will be busy, and this keeps me on track. You can’t do that on Noom. There is no way to plan ahead. This is particularly bad if I know I’m going out for one meal and need to plan the other meals to be lighter — and as a result, I keep going over, even trying to be conservative. And, finally, Noom doesn’t have a tab for logging exercise. You have to select “do more” and drill down to the limited exercise menu, which needs more options. They need to add HIIT workouts there. And finally, this is the beginning of week 2, and I have yet to talk to a goal specialist. I’ve gotten some bot-type interactions, but she won’t actually respond to me or my questions. She’s just kind of a push notification, like “good job for logging veggies today!” The cost is supposed to pay for the coach. If there’s no coach, then this is just a less robust version of myfitnesspal.
I’ve been using another app to monitor my macros and exercise for some time. I was having weight issues because of the humidity and swelling and no continued weight loss. It’s imperative I don’t gain weight as I’m an amputee and device fit is essential. What I discovered was it was environmental and plateau. My weight went up. It was muscular as my clothes did not fit any differently. My device didn’t fit good. That was weather and exercise related. It was hot and humid. I was doing interval training 5 days a week combined with biking. So when the weather changed everything changed and the plateau broke. My diet really remained the same. My devices began fitting the way they should fit once the humidity and temp dropped. I was very unhappy with the way food was categorized by caloric density. I could not understand why some high fat foods were Yellow and other foods were Red. I even questioned it and got answers I just didn’t like them. It was just something I wasn’t willing to change. I also wasn’t sure about doing weight daily. I learned to chart it weekly vs daily. I’ll continue to do my food and weight charting. Even chart it daily. I find that helpful. The psychology being used is somewhat repetitive for me. Grateful for the 2 week trial. Very minimal assistance from specialists. Every 4 days doesn’t seem worth the price. If it works for other, great! Go for it. Just not my thing.
