If you’re anything like me, you have a serious lack of motivation & support when it comes to eating healthy and exercising. I know a good number of the ladies around here use My Fitness Pal, but I’ve never been able to hook to it, other issues of mine kind of keep me from really connecting with most people, and actually jumping into forum discussions and the like freak me out. Sooo.
Recently I found Noom in the Android store. I have the free version, but there’s a subscription version - $9.99/month, and unfortunately, yes, the free version tries to get you to jump to the paid version, but it’s pretty easily ignored.
What I like most about Noom is that it gives you 4 simple goals every day. That’s it, just 4. My 4 goals today, for example, are to do my scheduled 7pm workout (which is just walking 1 mile, as that’s about all I can do while still recovering from surgery), log my lunch, read the artlce (for the umpteenth time) about why Noom Pro is better, and eat a meal without sitting in front of a screen.
The other thing I like about it is the food log. It doesn’t ask you to count calories, it just asks you to identify what you ate, and how big the portion was (for example when I click veggies, portion sizes are: golf ball, tennis ball, base ball, and soft ball). Foods are divided up by colours, as well - green, yellow, and red, so you really get more of a visual idea of just how healthy you are eating.
The app is also connected with a forum (sometimes one of your goals might be to post asking for support & motivation), it keeps a 7-day & 30-day history of your exercise, and a log (7 days, I think,) of your past meals.
So.. if you’re in the market for some sort of weight-loss help, if you find other sites a bit bothersome or what-have-you, I’d say give Noom a try. It’s definitely been helping me out, even if I have been slacking considerably on the exercise (it’s TOO HOT TO WALK -melts-)
