Get a weight-loss plan developed just for you
The Noom Weight Loss Coach provides a personalized weight loss plan based on age, gender, height, and current weight. You are given the option to set a target weight. As a guide, a nifty bar will appear on top so you can select an ideal weight based on the information you provided.
Initially, you will be recommended to log in food at specified periods in a day and walk a certain number of steps. However, the final weight loss plan will consist of the following details:
- The amount of weight you should lose each week
- The number of times you should exercise in a week
- The amount of calories you should consume in a day
The app heavily relies on notifications to keep you on track but we have to commend the Noom Weight Loss Coach for providing a personalized experienced. Even though recommendations are initially provided, you have the option to tweak them. You can choose to be hard on yourself by setting a more rigorous routine and assigning the app to constantly notify you or you can slow it down and set everything to a minimum.
Effortlessly monitor your calorie intake
Keeping track of what you eat is the strongest feature of the weight-loss app. There’s no need for calculating calories yourself. When you log in food, all you have to do is choose from basic food groups. Each of them includes a simple description and examples for easier selection.
You do have to select meal portions which are likened to objects like golf balls or soft balls for reference. Each portion is assigned a certain number of calories which vary depending on the food group. Good news is, the calorie counter is built-in and available for offline access. You don’t need an active internet connection to log in food.
At the end of the day, you can get an overview of how much calories you’ve eaten and whether or not you exceeded the recommended daily caloric intake.
With every goal you accomplish, you get points and increase your Noom Level. The Noom Level represents your progress. The higher your level is, the closer you are to achieving your target weight. When you do hit your target weight, you can still use the app to maintain it.
