Preventing type 2 diabetes starts with the brain.
Did you know that losing 5% of your body weight can reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes by 58%? Whether you’re aiming to hit that 5% or lose even more by focusing on other health behaviors, we’re here to help.
A more personal, personal coach.
Every time you use the Noom app, your information is automatically shared with your own personal Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) coach so that they can continuously monitor your progress. Your DPP coach will be able to see how you are doing and can help you find healthier options, balancing your eating plan with food that’s not only helpful for diabetes prevention, but food that you’ll actually enjoy.
Meet Noom’s Diabetes Prevention Program coaches.
Our coaches know better than anyone that losing weight is more than a physical process — it’s a mental process, too. Your coach will be your partner on this path; motivating you to stay on the right track when things get tough, but also celebrating your wins.

A program for long-lasting success.
Over the course of one year, you’ll gradually learn the healthy living habits you’ll need to help prevent type 2 diabetes. Your program is broken into two critical periods:
You will focus on nutrition and physical activity fundamentals while communicating with your coach and group at least once per week.
You’ll focus on more in-depth behavioral topics such as stress, sleep, and emotional eating. Based on your needs, you’ll continue to have the support of your coach while you work with your group to get through challenges and cheer each other on.
Noom believes a healthy weight starts with a healthy mind. During the yearlong program, you’ll work through four stages of learning how to change your behavior.
The first step in creating healthy habits is understanding where you’re at in your process. We’ll carefully monitor your routine and teach you the basics of healthy nutrition, exercise, stress management, and sleep. Then, you’ll better understand which changes you should focus on.
Now that you have a clear picture of your current habits, you can move forward with making some changes. Our Noom Diabetes Prevention Program Lifestyle coaches will help you to develop defined goals, outline clear ways to reach them, and motivate and support you to help you overcome potential barriers.
You’re putting what you’ve learned into practice and we’ll work with you to solidify your routine. Whether it’s a new physical activity or a more effective way to deal with stress, your new health habits will become second nature.
After learning how to confront all of your possible barriers, you’ll be ready for reinforcements. In this final step, you’ll learn how to conquer your habits in the long-term and you’ll be equipped to face each obstacle with knowledge and confidence.
Staying connected means staying successful.
When you’re trying to live a healthy life, things like work, obligations, family, and a million other things tend to get in the way. We understand that struggle and work to support you throughout your journey by staying super connected. So, even if you stray from your path, we’ll help you find your way back. Here’s how:
Monitoring your progress
Whatever your progress may look like, you’ll always receive the supportive and constructive feedback you need to stay on course or return to your program.
At Noom, you can count on support from your coach every step of the way. You’ll also be supported by—and have the opportunity to support—the people in your group who are embarking on a similar journey.
