On average, Noomers lose 18lbs in 16 weeks, and over 86% of Noomers keep the weight off beyond one year. Our scientifically-proven approach to weight loss and behavior change was created by a team of doctors, psychologists, nutritionists, and personal trainers. Noom has been featured in the New York Times, Women’s Health, Shape, Forbes, and more, and we've already helped millions of people worldwide achieve their health goals (a not-so-humble brag). And if you like talking science like we do, you might also recognize some of tried-and-true concepts and approaches that have informed our program like caloric density, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, and more.

I was excited to try Noom, given their advertisement. However, the coaches were not helpful as they didn’t give custom information based on my data. I gave the company a lot of my personal data, yet my coach asked me lackluster questions that didn’t take in mind the data I had submitted to the app. The coach could be a bot and I wouldn’t know. Sadly, I’m not sure why Noom is so expensive, since coaching is not tailored to the individual.
I just want to play a bit with the app but I can’t just go through the app. I am stuck in the flow
This is a diet community. A lot of personal support. I don’t have to be counting. I can eat what I want. I have lost 4 pounds in less than a month just following their advice. I am not making the changes very fast but I am. I don’t feel the pressure like in other diets I tried before. I make my own decisions. If you really want to feel better about yourself while losing weight this is your place.
Did the lessons & reading, logged steps/meals/etc... but didn’t get the help I asked for. “Coaches” just redirected me to pay more money. That’s all they seemed to be there for. Similar to beachbody “coaches”. A disappointing experience for sure.
This program seems to get better each day. Having someone to text, in the way of a coach, is comforting. And tracking water by pressing individual containers and actually watching the visual glass fill up and be recorded is extremely motivational. So far I am winning with Noom!
I usually use MyFitnessPal, but was looking for an app that might give more customized calorie and macro goals. Downloaded Noom and had to create an account to even check it out. It offers “7 day free trial” so I accept thinking I’ll just cancel before the trial ends if I don’t like it. The app is awful, it gives you short assignments and quizzes that might be good if you’re a child and have no concept of calories or nutrition whatsoever. So I went to cancel my “7 day free trial” and am told my membership will end in roughly 45 days. They took payment on an entire month plus a “free” week included. Kind of like they know its a horrible app and just need to scam people out of that month to make any money.
Great if you want to be on a system and it work for you, and if you want to be billed. There is no “free trial” if the company can help it. I cancelled a week before the free trail ended. Got a confirmation message in the app, where all communication occurs. Then I got charged anyway—surprise! Luckily I do my bank account balance daily and contacted them immediately. I paid through PayPal anticipating this might happen. I contacted Noom and provided them screenshots of the cancellation request. The cancellation was apparently “automated,” and the noom person I chatted with said “we don’t cancel subscriptions automatically. You have to talk to a person.” That’s funny, since the automated cancellation request said it was cancelled and nothing about having to contact them anywhere else. In fact to the contrary when you go to cancel I followed the exact recipe for how to do it. The program can definitely work, and it’s a calorie-counting program with a small amount of behavioral science thrown in, and a little bit of nutritional education. It can certainly work for weight loss if you stick to it. But it’s too bad that the program is designed to fraudulently steal money from its customers who try to unsubscribe. For that, it’s an automatic F!
I have a lot of experience with weight loss health and nutrition. I also have a bachelors degree in psychology and find what they are doing extremely relevant. After three kids I’ve had a hard time finding the motivation and the psych articles are fascinating to me and are providing proper tools to help me know how to work around my Temptations. I highly recommend it!
The barcode scanner would be convenient it it was also accessible outside the logging food area. It would be useful while shopping. Yes, it can be accessed but there are many steps to access it while just shopping. The search section in the recipes area does not result in what you are searching for. I was searching recipes for chicken and could only find recipes for chicken under the snacks. Also, the categories (breakfast, lunch, etc.) don't match the content within the category.
The Calorie counter is not user friendly at all. I find it so difficult to properly input servings and amounts or even find the food. I much prefer to use Lose It! And their calorie counter.
