Noom: Editorial notes

Noom is an app-based weight loss and health system focusing on long-term habits, mindset, and behaviour change. It assists you in tracking your weight by monitoring what you eat and provides nutritional guidance. It will direct you to complete a detailed profile by answering 38 questions.

Noom's credibility and reputation

Noom, founded in 2018, has recently taken the diet and wellness industry by storm. Their emphasis on coaching and behavioural psychology has been a massive success in promoting long-term weight loss, prompting many brands to change their approach to keep up.

If you read Noom's reviews on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), you'll notice that Noom is accredited and holds an A+ rating from the organization.

The app receives high ratings from users, who praise Noom for being simple and efficient. In fact, at the time of publication, Noom has a rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars on TrustPilot, based on 57,815 reviews.

Noom plans

To begin using Noom, you will complete a simple quiz on the company's website or directly on the app. The quiz asks about your age, weight, health, and fitness goals. It also inquiries about your current diet, activity levels, and habits or behaviours that may be detrimental to your health.

Here are some quiz questions: What feelings are you hoping to achieve during your journey with Noom? Which best describes the area you live in? How long has it been since you were at your ideal weight? And lastly, have any life events led to weight gain in the last few years?

The app uses this information to create a personalized plan for you and provide a realistic timeline for achieving your objectives. Noom requires users to spend only a few minutes per day on the app and offers daily educational articles, tips, and activities that can be completed at your own pace, such as: 1-4 minutes, 5-8 minutes, and 9–12 minutes.

Noom offers two programs: 

Healthy weight management: For 16 weeks, the Healthy Weight Program is divided into four stages - learning, practicing, advanced learning, and mastery. Participants are given simple tasks and can track their progress using the app. Users also benefit from encouragement and feedback from their support coach and peers.

The diabetes management program: It provides similar assistance but focuses on the carbohydrate content of the foods you eat. The diabetes program is approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which requires the program to meet specific criteria. The criteria are program participation, curriculum review, and other success metrics.

Noom intends to assist you in losing weight in the same way that most commercial diet schemes do — by creating a calorie deficit. A calorie deficit occurs when you consume fewer calories per day than you burn. Noom calculates your daily calorie requirements using your gender, age, height, weight, and responses to a series of lifestyle questions.

Noom uses an algorithm to estimate how many calories you need to eat each day based on your goal weight and time frame. It is referred to as your calorie budget. The estimated calorie budget, for example, was set at 1,320 calories per day. You can manually adjust your calorie budget or select a weight loss speed to increase or decrease your daily calorie allotment.

The app does not allow a daily calorie budget of fewer than 1,200 calories for women or 1,400 calories for men for safety reasons and to ensure adequate nutrition. The self-monitoring behaviours of food logging and weekly weigh-ins, which are linked to weight loss and long-term weight loss maintenance, are promoted by Noom.

Customer reviews

Noom is worthwhile if you want to lose weight by learning healthy habits and using psychological techniques. "This has been one of the best experiences I've had losing weight, learning about my body and mind, and maintaining motivation," a Georgia reviewer said. In comparison to other programs, the emphasis is on learning!"

However, if you don't want to record every detail of your meal, Noom might not be for you. "While the lessons are great and give me a lot to work on," a Nebraska reviewer said, "the coaching and food logging leaves a lot to be desired."

Overall, Noom provides users with the motivation and support they need to improve their habits.

Most popular diets mentioned in reviews

The "diet" works by assigning each food a traffic light colour - red for foods you should limit, green for foods you can eat as much as you want, and orange for foods that fall somewhere in between. While the basic plan does not provide you with a personalized meal plan, numerous recipes are available to help you eat as much "green" food as possible.

Mango Chicken Salad with Couscous, Grilled Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas, Roasted Orange Tilapia and Asparagus, and Sweet and Sour Shrimp were among the recipes I discovered while browsing Noom's suggestions. There is a wide range, demonstrating how much good food is available if you know what and how to eat. Sign up on the Noom website to see how your current diet compares.?
