Does Noom work?

During the holiday season it may be difficult to keep the pounds off–alot of people have been hearing about the Noom diet, which is a health and fitness app that starts off by asking users to set up their target weight and record their current weight.

The users then record their daily food intake and activity/exercise.

The app then generates reports displaying the user’s weight rends, calories and nutritional summaries along with suggestions as to the types of exercises that could be done to achieve the user’s desired weight.

Overall, from a study conducted of users from October 10, 2012 to April 4, 2014, and excluding certain app users for various reasons, overall the user’s lost 10% or more, with the highest percentage of lost weight being men.

One of the most important factors influencing the results was the input of the user’s dinner food intake-those that entered that data appeared to lose more weight.
