  • Pros: 

    Is much like the free Samsung app that comes with my android.

    Cons: 

    Is much like the free Samsung app that comes with my android.

    The "coaching" was not. I'm still not certain that that's a real person. It took days to get a response if I asked a question or tried to get in touch. I also did not like the deceptive pricing. Pricing options should be clear. You think you are signing up for one monthly charge and you get charged for 2 or 3 times the time period for more month. There is also a month by month option that I stumbled on by accident. Overall, I don't think there is anything new in this app from what I get for free with Samsung Health including all the tracking of exercise, meals, etc etc. It sends you reminders and is easy to use, plus it is FREE! Noom puts a lot of $$ into advertising rather than focusing on actual user experiencing and improving the app in a substantive and authentic way. It feels like smoke and mirrors to some extend. They have additional funding so they should now really make the improvements and build the app they advertise it to be.

    ToZo has used this product for one month.

Hi PH! I'm an investor at Sequoia and we are thrilled to partner with Noom as they help people live healthier lives. Noom's clinically proven behavior change programs combine the empathy of human coaches with the scale of technology to help people make sustainable lifestyle changes. We were incredibly impressed by the vision and determination of Noom's small team and by the depth of their technology, both the science behind their program as well as the technology platform that allows Noom to make personalized coaching accessible to everyone.
AppStore reviews are not so good and encouraging..
I'm curious to know from which service/db they take those foods/nutrients
@stermi We curate our own food database with an internal dedicated team of food editors, plus some licensed items.
Moreso than a "free online evaluator" for how much weight I could lose, I'd rather simply see proof of results - I know that the algorithm is just making it up via a preset set of variables. If it works it'd be amazing though, nicely done!
