Noom is a health & fitness app that is mostly preferred by those who want to lose weight and has increased its popularity significantly in 2020 due to coronavirus. Launched in 2016 by the company, Noom app is kind of different from the other weight loss apps as its content and methodology is created by a team of doctors, with the focus of changing your eating habits and developing healthy habits that last for a lifetime.
Noom app provides daily lessons and personal coaching and it allows you to track your food and exercise habits. Based on the answers you provided in the onboarding process, the app assigns you a daily calorie budget. Having a database of more than 3.5 million foods and over 1,000 interactive lessons, Noom claims that over 86% of its users keep the weight off beyond one year.
