I just joined Noom for the next few months at least (so I’m committed for now). Does this program work? I’m tired of the Covid weight.

Get your refund while you can. All Noom is is a rebranded 1200 crash diet. Pass.

Yes I’ve lost 30 lbs already. You will love it

I started the free trial on recommendation of a friend who LOVES it - it’s working a lot for her. I’m planning on cancelling bc it’s not my cup of tea. It seems to only focus on calorie intake and not on actual nutrients/Macros. The starting calorie allowance was a bit too low for me (1300) given my level of activity and goals. Plus I found the lessons a bit condescending and irrelevant to me. I think the success of the program totally depends from person to person. My friend loves it because it’s forced her to re-evaluate her eating habits and be more mindful. She’s only focused on diet at the moment and weight loss (not too much on physical activity or building muscle). And the calorie limit is quite low so she’s consuming less than she burns. So it’s working for her. Whether or not it’ll be sustainable weight loss, we’ll see. As another poster said, it does seem like a crash diet + a few mindful eating tips. It’s not my cup of tea and I prefer just tracking using myfitnesspal premium.

Looking to lose 10-15lbs that I had gained during covid. Going to a wedding in 2.5 months that is my main motivator. The past 2 weeks I have been doing well - tracking what I eat, buying healthier groceries and working out 5x a week. Then Easter hit and I went to my family’s lunch, and ate way too much unhealthy food. My mom sent me home with lots of food which I ended up eating most of yesterday. Didn’t workout either days. How can I stop myself from spiraling? Usually I’d give up at this point
