I was skeptical to start a program like NOOM because of the price and because I didn’t know if it would work for me. I have struggled with weight for most of my adult life and it has not been easy for me to lose weight. I am entering week nine in the NOOM program and have lost 12 pounds! While this may not seem like much, it is weight that I have not been able to lose on my own. I am a registered nurse and I feel that a slower, steady weight loss is a healthier way to go. I have seen many others in my life lose and then gain right back. The program has been so helpful in many ways. I like the fact that there’s really nothing that you can’t eat in the program, but more like how much you eat of it. The program breaks down for you the three levels of food and how much you should be eating in each of those categories. It has been more of a lifestyle change and making you aware of what you were actually eating. I really love the program. I think that it is really great to have a coach and a support team to reach out to 24 hours a day, and to also have recipes recommended by the program. I invited a friend to join the program as well and she really enjoyed it but she ended with her trial due to the pricing for her. I have a ways to go to meet my goal, but I am off to a great start thanks to NOOM! So I give this program five stars, but if it were just slightly less expensive, more people could benefit from it.
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’m very pleased with the approach Noom takes to weight loss. It’s about helping you change your thinking about food and helping you make gradual changes in your lifestyle that will lead to sustainable weight loss. It’s well paced, informative, and well supported by coaches and a personalized group. Sadly, I cannot say the same for the customer support which was TERRIBLE! The sign up process is somewhat confusing. (E.g. different levels of payment for trial and total for subscription). When I had questions about this, I discovered there was NO phone support available. I had to use email which turned into a long, convoluted thread. I had to write my questions multiple times to 3 different people, none of whom answered them fully. In between, I received numerous automated emails saying that if I did not reply within 3 days, they would consider the matter closed. I was told I “should” have gotten a receipt multiple times (I didn’t). After 4 to 5 days of this and with no recourse to talk to someone, I finally cried “uncle.” Had one person simply fully addressed my questions, I would not be writing this. I think there was an assumption that I wanted my money back even though I wrote several times that this was not the case. I did let them know that I was very unhappy with their customer support response but, given that no one seemed to fully read my previous emails, I rather doubt that they read it.
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.
