We’re big into trends when it comes to fashion and beauty, but when it comes to our health? We need something with long-term benefits that will have us feeling good from the inside out. Everyone’s screaming “keto this” and “weight loss that” into our ear, but that just leaves us screaming out of frustration!
Not every diet or wellness plan works the same for everyone. It would be suspicious if it did. So many different factors affect our health and weight: food, exercise, stress, lack of sleep, changed-up work hours and our mental health, to name a few. That’s why Noom, one of the fastest growing wellness programs of the past year, focuses on helping individuals, one user at a time, through both technology and supportive human assistance!
Noom is an app-driven diet plan that keeps it real with us through empathy, honesty and good old-fashioned fun! If traditional diets were fun, we’d be doing them all the time, but that’s not reality. Noom gets it. The program doesn’t try to preach at us or judge us in order to motivate us into hitting our goals. It helps us to see the bright side of our health journey — the light at the end of the tunnel. It’s a light that stays on, too, since Noom is all about creating lasting outcomes!
Encouraging us to make a permanent, healthy lifestyle change seems like the challenge of a lifetime. The calorie-counting, unrealistic diets we’re used to may produce results in the short term, but we boomerang right back to the starting point almost immediately afterward because the plan wasn’t dedicated to our overall wellness, unlike Noom. Noom celebrates small victories along the way, whether it’s through sending virtual milestone celebrations or sharing our progress with a support group of other Noom users to keep us on track for good!
To get started with Noom’s 14-day free trial, all we need to do is take a 30-second online evaluation, answering simple questions about our measurements, lifestyle and goal. It’s that quick! We can finish up during just one commercial as we watch television. Noom will then give us a date for when we can expect to reach our goal. Just a few seconds to already have an exact idea of when we’ll see results? That’s amazing, especially if we’re planning for a special event!
We can then claim our customized plan, made just for us and nobody else. This plan may help us immediately get started on a steady journey, losing weight the healthy way, shedding one to two pounds a week. We won’t be bombarded with complicated information or misleading promises, or even any intimidating expectations. Instead we’ll be greeted with our very own Goal Specialist!
These Goal Specialists are professionals trained in cognitive behavior therapy, so they can identify and address behavioral patterns that may be stopping us from reaching our goal or keeping us glued down to unhealthy habits. They recognize the importance of mindfulness through psychology, and through weekly one-on-one communication, they may help us implement actionable change!
Noom’s app currently has 426,000 items for meal logging, but is growing every single day. We don’t need to only eat kale to get healthy — the options go on and on, and Noom will help us determine how to eat what we want to eat, rather than stopping us from enjoying our favorite foods, period. Along with our meals, we can also log our workouts, weight and even our blood glucose and blood pressure!
The app experience doesn’t end there. Along with our customized meal and workout plans, we can also look through hundreds of motivating articles and tips, including #PsychTricks, to integrate into our daily life, and even fun and interactive choose-your-own-adventure style guides! This is our adventure in the end, after all! Don’t forget the award-winning pedometer as well. Every step counts and Noom won’t miss it!
We’ve been obsessed with Noom for a while now, and its millions and millions of users feel the same. One, who lost over 70 pounds with the program, called it “the best learning experience [they] have ever had,” while another said their “success brought [them] to tears,” calling the one-of-a-kind program “surreal.” Others love how Noom has allowed them to finally have a “more satisfying relationship with food” and called their journey “oddly liberating,” able to finally take the blame off themselves and conquer the true, disguised issues they’d been facing for so long!
With Noom, there’s no strict set of rules that everyone needs to follow. We can do what’s best for us and our well-being, and Noom will help light the way. The start of a healthier, happier life may be just 30 seconds away!
