I love this app and program. However the app glitches. The menu top left disappears. Some of my orange days have suddenly gone gray. Aside from those things I’m very happy with the concept of this program.
The app is okay. The behavioral lessons are good but nothing new. Lately the app is really buggy. Enter a meal and the app closes. Been 3 weeks now and they are still working on it. Entering meals is clunky. You go in and out instead of easily scrolling up and down between meals. Lose It has a much easier interface. I didn’t find the humor all that enjoyable in the lessons. It was basic ‘dad jokes’ and was so much that it distracted from the actual learning. Adding humor is a lazy way to make online learning engaging. Also the knowledge check questions are not well written.
Buyer beware. If you do not receive your notification that your subscription is going to renew and it automatically renews, you will be charged and they will not give you a refund unless you let them know within 14 days. Since most people do not look at charges every day, this 14 day period is ridiculous. If you sign up, make sure you put a reminder in your calendar to cancel ahead of the renewal date.
I’ve only been doing this for one week but so far I have gone from feeling hopeless and defeated to encouraged and empowered. I’m learning a lot about myself and how to take control of my thoughts and environment. I plan to continue and feel that success is possible! Thank you!
Logging your meals and all the snacks that you’ve eaten that day and how much water you’ve drank it really makes you realize how bad you’re eating and how much water you’re supposed to be drinking so I have definitely fixed my diet completely but I still eat what I want and I can go a couple days eating, super healthy and get rewarded with a treat day where I can eat whatever I want that entire day it makes you want to eat more green zone food. I personally love it because it also makes me eat healthier so now I’m feeling healthier and I have adopted some new healthy habits and the recipes that they provide are some of my new favorite recipes for me and my family.
I am surprised at how enjoyable and effective using Noom is. After only 6 days I have not only lost some weight but I’m learning new behaviors and applying them slowly in a fun and engaging way. Glad I invested in myself and gave it a shot!!
I’m using Noom and I am losing weight, because it is a useful app for what I need. It helps me be accountable for everything I put in my mouth. It helps me track calories daily, which is what I need. Having said that, it has some features that others may like, but that I find very annoying. Constant little pop-up features (‘you’ve earned a Noomcoin!’ ‘Would you like to share your progress?’ ‘Pick an emoji to describe how you feel’ etc etc). You end up having to click four times to make it back to the home page. I also find that the dietary guidelines are not helpful for anyone needing or wanting a diet that isn’t basically in line with the food pyramid. I kind of feel like this app would like to slap me every time I log some cheese. Yes, grapes would have been a better choice according to them. But you CAN lose weight eating nutrient dense foods (e.g.,high in fats), as long as you’re balancing calories in with a bit more calories out over the day. That takes me to logging exercise. It’d be great if the app could remember the common ways you exercise so you don’t have to continually go back and scroll to find ‘swimming’ near the bottom of a list. Last gripe: the ‘units’ of measurement of many foods are dumb and I often have to search around for some alternative way to log a food. You enter ‘rice’ and the first thing that comes up is RAW rice, measured in increments of a cup. No one is eating 1/2 a cup of raw rice. You have to search for COOKED rice. Then you get the following units of measurement: ‘bowl’, ‘big bowl’ etc. without any indication of exactly how much is in a bowl? So you have to search for better units. And the next time you log rice you have to do it all over again because the app won’t remember what you commonly log. So this app might be helpful to you…certainly lots of people use it. But it could be a lot more user friendly/customizable imo. 5/27/23 UPDATE: they will NOT send you any reminder of an automatic renewal. I caught it on the SAME day as the renewal, cancelled my subscription, but they had already taken another $156. I asked customer support for a refund because I have ultimately found the app more annoying than I want to deal with any longer. They refused, and then stopped communicating with me. I was not rude to anyone. Their customer service is the same as every other impersonal Big Corporate Faceless “sorry not sorry” story that values your money over your life. Ill be happy to update this review when I get my $156 back.
I’ve been using Noom for about 3 weeks and have lost a few pounds. The app is helpful and fairly intuitive, but has a few quirks. When logging food, you can’t simply go back to the meals page to add more food. For example, if I’m logging dinner and then remember an afternoon snack, I can’t just go back to the meals page to add items to my snack. Instead I have to close the dinner tab and go back to the log foods button. It’s not a problem, just sort of annoying. Also, when you get access to the Noom circles (community pages), the feed only shows maybe 10 or so entries, which forces you to go search for things. Again, not a problem but could be improved. As for the Noom program itself, it’s been helpful so far! I think the best thing is that it’s keeping me accountable.
It’s a bit pricy but it’s very amazing. Def give it a try.
This process is working for me. I have tried them all and nothing worked. Down 22pounds In first month. I’ll keep on it for now.started last weight loss effort at 256 lbs. now at 234.6. Thanks. John in Minneapolis
