Weighing-in regularly is a key part of your Noom program — how else will you know how you’re doing? But that’s not the only reason Noom asks you to weigh in. Weighing-in is a proven and effective tool for weight loss.
You see, it’s not about the weigh-in itself, but about the subtle changes in psychology it creates. Usually, eating more doesn’t have a short-term consequence, but once you know that you’ll see it on the scale in a few days, you’re much more likely to stick to your diet. It’s like having a small voice inside your head always telling you to eat healthy.
To make your weigh-ins most effective, weigh yourself in the morning 15-30 minutes after waking up and before eating or drinking. This minimizes the variability, which can be pretty big.
We recommend weighing in at least once per week. Some people like to weigh in daily, but it’s not necessary to focus on those small daily fluctuations. Instead, focus on longer trends, like those seen when weighing in weekly. Noom will remind you to weigh in at least once per week. If you’d like to weigh in more, feel free to do so!
