Noom also provides a personal coach who checks in with you a few times a week, and you’re placed in a group where members virtually cheer each other’s victories and offer consolation when the scale tips in the wrong direction.
I lost five pounds in five weeks – shazam!
But then, just as quickly, I gained it back after a week with three hefty bowls of pasta. After my binge, I realized that the best part of Noom is the calorie calculator and being able to see which food groups you gravitate to.
There are plenty of free apps that offer these services (I’m going to give MyFitnessPal a try), while Noom charges a significant $45 a month. For me, Noom is not worth that premium.
