If you listen to podcasts as much as I do, you’ve probably heard ads for the weight loss program Noom, which says it uses psychology to help you lose weight and keep it off for good. I was curious to try it for myself, so when Noom reached out, I jumped at the chance to review it. I’ve used the program for two weeks now and below are the pros and cons of my experience so far.
Noom is not a diet and it doesn’t promise you’ll lose tons of weight fast. The goal of Noom is to teach you how to make better choices and build habits that you can maintain for permanent weight loss and better health.
Here are the best things about the Noom weight loss program:
1. Convenient (and private) app. Between working and momming, I don’t want to spend the little free time I have going to Weight Watchers meetings, dealing with special meal plans, or even going to the gym, for that matter. Because Noom is completely app-based, I can pull it out of my pocket any time I have a few minutes. Noom also offers a personal goal specialist you can message through the chat, so no need to bare your soul to a stranger face to face.
