  • I just started my Noom trial and have a few thoughts. 1. Anyone with a history of eating disorders should NOT use this app, or ANY weight loss app, in my opinion. It’s just common sense that these kinds of programs are very triggering to people with a history of EDs. That being said, 2. I actually really appreciate the Stoplight system for categorizing food. Although I agree it would have been a better idea to not label anything “red” based on the stigma it creates around eating these foods, the program does say that these red foods should be a part of your daily diet, just less than the other colors. I think you mention that the app tells you to eat mostly “green” foods, but actually it recommends a ratio where yellow foods make up the majority of your daily diet, followed by green and then red. For me, when I eat red foods, I don’t see it as “ugh I feel so guilty for eating this”. I feel more like “cool, I get to eat this kind of food every day, but need to be MINDFUL of how much of it I consume”. I definitely think the Stoplight system is meant to be about mindfulness, not restriction. 3. I think the daily weigh-ins are a good idea (again, not for people with history of EDs) because it normalizes weight fluctuations and makes weighing yourself way less of a stressful experience. For example, I weighed 2.2 pounds less on my second weigh in, which was obviously due to some sort of fluctuation relating to either bloating or digestion, not because I actually lost 2.2 pounds of fat in a day. Same thing if I were to gain weight in a day, I can acknowledge that it’s just my body fluctuating normally, NOT a failure on my part to weigh less. 4. I’m not sure at this moment if I will continue to pay if the monthly price seems to steep for me simply because I already know most of the info the app has so far taught me, and also because I don’t see myself using the coach system. There are other free apps out there that you can track your calorie deficits with, like Chronometer (which I highly recommend btw). The thing about Noom that other free programs don’t do though is it keeps me motivated and accountable by encouraging me to check in daily. Otherwise it’s super easy for me to fall off the wagon of food tracking within 2-4 weeks.

    TLDR; don’t use weight loss programs if they are triggering for you, period; if you’re the kind of person who has a relatively healthy relationship with food but needs a gentle nudge to be consistent, I think this app will work for you.

  • Hi Abby! Love the video! I recently came across an app called Little Moochi targeted towards helping kids develop healthy eating habits. It claims to be safe by focusing on the benefits of food, not calories. Also, their little character is SOOO cute. I’d love to hear your thoughts
    Their website is: http://www.littlemoochi.com

  • I tried to use noom as it claimed to be a “lifestyle” based diet change. Ended up just straight up triggering my ED. Completely tone deaf and clearly not well researched.

  • I am on the Noom program, i feel like it really has helped me, i find the articles motivating. I don’t follow everything it says and my “red ” foods are always “over” but it has helped me lose 30 LB in the last 10 months and I plan on using it until I reach my goal weight, which is 155, I started off at 205 and I’m 5’7. I do agree with some of the red flags you pointed out. I have suffered from disordered eating in my (pretty distant) past and i feel like for some it would be easy to fall back into those habits on Noom with nobody from the app noticing too much. I also started running, going to therapy, cut back on alcohol and quit smoking all during the pandemic, maybe i just thrive more in chaos and isolation but Noom has been a tool I’ve leaned on.

  • I used Noom for a period of about 6 months as my first foray back into ‘sustainable’ weight loss goals, after regaining weight over a few years, after my previous crash diet history. I had a coach called Deborah who I could also follow on Instagram who did definitely promote a healthy lifestyle, and I found her genuinely helpful. I did also find the course information helpful as I had previously never even tried to learn about psychology around food. I stopped my paid programme after losing around 28lbs, after being on a calorie goal of 1200, where I was hungry a lot, and had no real gauge of my deficit, as I didn’t have any other fitness tracker which told me my overall energy expenditure for the day. Deborah who was happy with my progress and so was happy to see me finish the programme and leave Noom, but, sure enough, I regained the weight over about 2 years, and then some. I re-signed up for Noom, thinking that it would help as it did the first time, but was constantly depressed that this was an app ‘to lose weight for good’ and I was having to do it a second time around, which constantly affirmed personal failure, rather than failure of a system. I also experienced some pretty irrelevant and insensitive replies from my personal coach, which seem like the ‘canned’ responses that Caroline talked about, when response loads are high for the coaches. I went all the way through the paid programme again, this time totally unsuccessfully, not even losing a pound, and noticed again how some of my nutrient dense foods like chia seeds were marked as red, which ended up with me noticing that I was likely to restrict on some of the best things I was eating in my diet. At the end of the paid programme I cancelled, and started to lose weight pretty much the next week, as a weight was lifted from me that instead of having failed and having to ‘repeat class’, I could find a new way that worked for my body now. I definitely don’t have the answers to sustainable or longterm weightloss, but I definitely would agree that there is no evidence to suggest this app can give you results for good, and for me, it had the same effect over the longterm than any previous crash diet/restriction diet I’d done. Thanks for your video on this as I found it really helpful to see from a nutrition perspective and diet culture how harmful it can be. (I constantly felt bad that I selected the tortoise setting for weight loss speed for example). Thanks for all your hard work Abbey:)

  • I tried noom as an alternative to Myfitnesspal, hoping it wouldn’t be calorie centric. As someone who struggles with BED and a “recovering dieter” calorie counting, restricting, regular weigh-ins, labeling foods good/bad, are all things I’m trying to avoid. But right away, they encourage you to weigh in every day to “overcome fear of the scale” and even though they said “red foods aren’t bad foods” I could not get over the red/yellow/green associations. It’s just another diet app under disguise.

  • Interesting, I’ve been on Noom for about 2 months, and as someone who has struggled with orthorexia, it actually does not put me back into that mind space.

  • I’m glad I came across your channel, you actually inspired me to loose weight despite the fact I have lupus and already I lost 8 pounds! Thank you so much to you and your videos

  • We shall see. I love sweet potatoes. I can eat a big bowl of mashed S potatoes with butter and a boiled egg. It’s my favorite root vegetable.��

  • I used this app back in high school when it first came out. It was awful. I ended up eating the lowest calorie possible meals which led to me binging at night. It made me feel so bad about myself so I would exercise hard. Now I’ll use Cronometer on ocassion to make sure my diet isn’t deficient in anything (because I’m vegan) and I exercise often but workouts I enjoy to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

  • I downloaded it, and it told me that I should eat 1300 calories per day. For reference, I am a 5’9″, large-framed woman with a fair amount of muscle. At the time (pre-quarantine), I was working out 3-4x per week.
    Yeah, I’m never going to eat only 1300 calories per day. I immediately cancelled it and sent them a note because of it.
    Edited to add: I should say that I do use My Fitness Pal, because I haven’t been able to successfully use IE. I do use macro/nutrient counting (and therefore calories, but less important to me), but MFP allows me to set it rather than go through a set program on something that doesn’t know my body like I do.

  • I have been using Noom for a little over 3 months, and I have really liked it. I have lost 30lbs and i think it actually encourages you to eat all foods that’s part of the lessons some days. I feel like I have a lot of freedom.

  • 6. Sweet potato is the worst, it is high in starch and if you are trying to loose weight avoid this. I live in New Zealand where the sweet potato is grown and exported to all of you overseas. Trust me it’s not your best friend. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

  • omg i do NOT need an app telling me not to eat burgers lol. burgers are insanely filling for the calories they have. im not a fan of mcdonalds but i like other burger joints.


  • Please list everything in the description too �� sometimes I’m already at the store or ordering and remember I wanted to try something & need to find it quickly.

  • I lost a hundred pounds on noom and kept it off. I would not recommend noom. My metabolism is shot now and my relationship with food is horrible.

  • Abbey, this was a great video!!! However, when you were talking about ur experience downloading noom I do wish you would have not mentioned your weight. In the future it may be better to censor weight or put a trigger warning considering your audiences demographic. Lots of love and stay safe ��

  • For some reason both of the “dieting/fitness” apps I downloaded showed 1200 calories a day and both mentioned that your actual weight/goals didn’t impact the calorie count… my mother is trying something and it also quoted her 1200 calories… it seems like these apps just seem to think that women should only eat 1200.

  • i go through random phases of getting obsessed with youtubers and right now i’m obsessed with you whitney! �� you’re so freaking adorable to watch!

  • I totally get the concerns. Ive watch Abbey for a while now and I learned alot about intuitive eating. But on the other handI like noom. I wanted to drop at least 10 # before getting pregnant. I saw it as a guide and didn’t follow it to a T. I saw the 1200 calorie limit and was like umm no. I ate between 1700-2100. Some days were 2200 or 2300. I never thought I would like counting calories but it helped me realize how much I was eating. The first few days I ate like I normally would and tracked it. I was eating 3000 4500 calories! Mostly carbs and desserts. So the color system helped me focus on choosing better foods. I liked the articlesit helped me realized the mindless eating i tend to do. And one dessert a day is plenty, not 3! I was only on it for a month and got pregnant with baby #3 so I canceled. I would join again sometime after birth. It helped me stay accountable.

  • Just got through my 2 week trial on Noom. Not gonna lie, I wish I had watched this a little sooner. This validates some of the frustrations I’ve been suppressing about the mixed messaging I was getting from the app. Noom pushes you to think about your ultimate goal and motivation, which for me is forming a healthier relationship with food, but it doesn’t seem to support that kind of goal. It is a weight-loss app and it assumes that your ultimate goal is reaching a maintaining a certain weight.

  • I started their free trial and they put my max calories at 1200 just to lose 1 lbs a week lmaoo no thank you. Been there done that. The girl that used to be my fitness coach(taking a break right now) even said yikes. I also dont need another calories in vs calories out. I workout regularly, I need assistance with healing my relationship with food not making it worse.

  • Good thing I watched this video before trying it out! WOW, their marketing message seems to be the COMPLETE OPPOSITE of what they actually do.

  • I know I may be a little off topic here but I’m speaking on behalf of the men who are looking forward to losing belly fat and getting lean and in shape. Tofu is a soy based product and is bad for men especially if on a vegan diet because it’s a building block of the female hormone called Estrogen. Estrogen is a Testosterone killer, Men need more Testosterone for getting in shape. Another plant based plant food that is very damaging to Testosterone production are Tomatoes. Also Potatoes and sweet potatoes if not mashed could be damaging to the digestive tract and cause Fatty Liver. Eating too many beets over time could cause blood thinning and cause even greater blood thinning while consuming green leafy foods. Whole eggs, Apples, mushrooms and Broccoli however are all great building blocks for Testosterone production, when it comes to yogurt non fat Greek yogurt is the best option because any other form of yogurt could cause more gas and blotting later in the day if eaten with fruits. Citrus fruits like Grape fruit can not only thin out the blood but is a Testosterone blocker

  • I never tried Noom, but I did Weight Watchers a few years back and it did work…until it didn’t. Basically as my weight went down my caloric intake (which was on a “points” system, but it’s pretty much the same concept) kept going down and down, until it was so restrictive it was basically like the 1200 calorie plan you detailed. My weight goal was set at 120, which being 5’0 isn’t I guess unrealistic, but I personally think my “set point” is higher. I started at about 170, I got down to about 130ish and then started slowly gaining it back. Got frustrated and quit and then gained it back shockingly fast. I’m now heavy beyond where I started, which is super frustrating. Now I’m just trying to eat more fruit and veggies and started walking with my husband most mornings. Not sure if I’ve lost much weight, but I physically feel better, so maybe that’s more important? I do wish I knew the secrets of those “effortlessly thin” people, but I’ve never been one of them.

  • Hello there, have you considered Custokebon Secrets yet? Just do a google search search. On there you’ll discover a great guidelines about how you can lost a lot of fat. Why don’t you give it a shot? maybe it will work for you too.

  • I tried it for 2 days, the fact that my calorie goal was 1200, as a 29 year old is just ridiculous. And that was with me putting that I’m moderately active.

  • So… I’m not at all saying it’s magic or anything. It’s an app. There are others out there that are probably just as good that cost less. However, I’m finding it helpful. I like the simplified food system it’s not overwhelming me with information. I’m mostly using it to count calories and to encourage myself to eat more fruits and veggies. I’m a 5’4″ female and I put my weight loss setting on the turtle, and my calorie budget is around 1800, and it goes up with exercise. Sometimes I eat under, sometimes over. I don’t have any history of restrictive eating disorders, but I do have a history of mindlessly eating junk and fast food, so tracking is helping me get closer to my goals. I can see where things could cause problems for people with a history of disordered eating, but for someone like me who just needs something easy to use, something that helps remind me of my goals, I think it’s pretty useful.

  • I just recently signed up for noom and still in the trial period. I will not be paying any money to this company. As a vegan, my protein options like beans and lentils are considered “yellow” foods. Their food catalog is the worst I’ve seen. They put me on 1200 calories. I reached out to my goal specialist and let her know how active I was but you can’t change the calorie goal. I already find myself feeling guilty for going over my goal everyday, even though I’m still losing weight and hate that high calorie, incredibly nutrient dense foods like avocado, nuts and seeds are considered “red” foods. I will say I’ve gotten better insight into what I’m eating but that’s pretty much it

  • Interesting video. The best thing about losing weight is that you feel lighter. I lose 5 pounds in 1 week by following this method: the2weekdietnow (search it on the internet)

  • Boom ads are so damn annoying. I hate companies thst don’t bother to make ads specific for their target country. As an Australian I can’t stand ads with annoying American accents about being a ‘3rd generation candy maker’

  • I’m confused as to why someone would give this video a thumbs down.. She’s so sweet and adorable and funny. I love fruit and really enjoy a plant based burger too lol apples are my go to snack with peanut butter. I eat 12 apples a week hahaha blueberries are another love and I eat veggies everyday. Great tips Whit, I love anything veggie or fruits 😉

  • I just want a non-diet-y health app that helps keep me engaged because with adhd I do need that structure, but I have no interest in an app that is gonna ask me what my goal weight is. Lol like, I don’t even keep a scale, I just want to eat healthy and be strong.

  • I tried Noom and it was unfortunately awful for me. As a person with a history of disordered eating it was super triggering to me having to weigh myself every day per the app instructions. The red light/green light ratings on food reinforced the good food/bad food mentality which caused me to spiral with unhealthy habits. I’m pretty positive my counselor was an automated bot or at best a different random person each time. But, for someone without a disordered eating history perhaps this would not be as much of an issue.

  • I’m so glad that you posted this. I wish I would have found this before starting Noom. It was helping in the beginning but I feel like it’s been taking a toll on my mental health by weighing in everyday and I am seriously thinking about cancelling my subscription. Any time I try to ask my coach or specialist a question, I don’t get an answer until like 2 days later

  • Shaved Brussel sprouts are my favorite! I shave them through my food processor and they keep in the fridge for a couple of weeks. Sautéed and mixed into scrambled eggs or on a rice bowl, so good!

  • Would you ever consider taking a look at Chronometer? I know it’s not as popular as MFP and NOOM, but it’s less moralizing and I’ve found it really helpful. You can tell it not to show you certain things and it also tracks micronutrients! I used to use it to make sure I was getting enough iron and B12 while I got the hang of vegan IE.

  • Can you watch Jenn Im’s “What I Eat in a Week” videos? She has my absolute favorites because I feel like she eats very intuitively and yummy and I get a lot of inspiration from her!

  • I weigh myself every day and I’m happy about it because it motivates me. Because I’m actually losing weight, but I’m not hungry either. And so it’s nice to see the progress I don’t know why that is so wrong.

  • Where does she even find this food I never see it anywhere until she sends me looking for it �� I’m still shook she recommended kodiak pancake/waffle mix a while back and I ate it every single day for breakfast for a year and a half ��. Ps i love your videos + personality. The only youtuber that hasn’t changed with fame!!

  • LOL Noom labelled my peanut butter/avocado as a red food and my venti Starbucks Latte as a green food because I used skim milk in it. smh.

  • every food makes you fat if you eat to much its not about the food its about calories in and out. so instead of searching foods that makes you not “fat” figure out how many calories your body needs and starting counting them(sorry for my bad english)

  • I think the concept of calorie density can help many people with weight loss or weight maintenance. But you shouldnt categorize them as green or red. Just use the knowledge for your own gain

  • I tried Noom for less than 48 hours and HATED it. I’ve currently been on Weight Watchers and freaking love it so far! Btw, WW does have a “healthy habits” options you can use that isn’t focusing on weight loss, which I find helpful!

  • Thank you for this video! Do you ever discuss blood work and reproductive health and how nutrition can improve these metrics of health?

  • Huh?
    “grapefruit can advertise weigh loss”?
    “just under a few calories”?
    Is she reading from a script written for her? Someone needs to proof read it.

  • Thanks for the helpful video. I’d love to hear your thoughts on Lumen. Please do a breakdown of whether Lumen could actually help tweak metabolism.

  • What is the best way to lost crazy amounts of weight? I read loads of superb reviews on the internet about how exactly Custokebon Secrets can assist you lost crazy amounts of fat. Has any one tested out this popular fat burn method?

  • I tried Noom back in about 2017, and it was a DISASTER. I think the coach you showed was actually one of my coaches, and I only spoke to her the day she introduced herself and the day I cancelled. The program was a mess because they were in the middle of “updating” the program. Different users had different content, and the coaches had no way of knowing who had what even though everyone in the coaching groups supposedly started the program the same day. It’s a complete mess.

  • I tried Noom and it triggered my past of disordered eating within the first couple of weeks. I immediately stopped using it because I am not going down that route again. Just glad I recognized it and my boyfriend even knows how to recognize if I ever “fall back in” to old habits.

  • at 41:35 she say: “I would not recommend ZOOM” instead of “noom” hahahahaha. Regardless, this was helpful and thank you for making this video.

  • I wish you would review the Naturally Slim program. I found it really troubling for a number of reasons. My husband’s company offered it to him as a perk of his insurance, but it had almost a cult like feeling, and some suggestions (like guzzling super diluted orange juice, avoiding all sugar, using a meal timer) upsetting.

  • im an RD2B and I did the free trial on this app just to see what it was all about. I found it relied heavily on the psychology aspect of things, which was interesting. I was really turned off that it wanted daily weigh insNOT what I learned.

  • I hated that Noom didn’t take dietary restrictions into account. I have a lot of food allergies that make it hard for me to get most of my nutrition from “green” and “yellow” foods. Most of their recommendations in their “articles” and their recipe section were things I can’t eat.

  • I am currently using it. Some of the early readings were helpful and helped me understand how to fuel myself better. I don’t really pay attention to the colored foods, so I just eat what I want. It holds me accountable in a way I have struggled to do on my own. I also understand the daily weigh ins because Noom talks about how your weight fluctuates in life, so it’s important to get comfortable with it. It’s definitely not worth the money bc I can do the food tracking by myself. I already paid for 3 months tho, so we’re gonna stick with it for the last month

  • I considered applying for Noom before seeing this video. What caught my eye initially was their promotion of “sustainable weight loss.” After watching your video, I’m not applying there anymore. Thanks, Abbey.

  • HIgh amounts of carbs or fats will make you fat no matter if its healthy or not. Even if you are on a calorie deficit you will just end up skinny fat at a lower weight.

  • Normally I like Abbey’s reviews, but I think this one is off based. I have used Noom and a large component of the system involves reading brief provided articles on nutrition and craving-control. Then they quiz you on the information. They make many qualifiers to their red-yell-green food system in the reading material. They explain that it’s just a shorthand, and that a food can still sometimes be healthy even if it’s classified as yellow or red. It’s a practical system based on caloric density. Yes, some people can take it too far, but I this app has been very helpful to lots of people. Pay attn to caloric density is a sensible way to lose weight and maintain that weight loss. Noom promotes eating mostly veggies and some healthy fats. If you don’t want to lose weight and only maintain weight, then eating more calories of still healthy food is not a bad or unhealthy strategy. I get that you are “pro-food” and “anti-food shaming” but this review seems like it has an ax to gring. Noom works and is safe, healthy, and even educational for large majorities of the population.

  • i noticed that it also overestimates the amount of calories in foods…..it put me on 1300 i think, and I do use a tracking app which i was measuring up nooms tracking against. In reality, when I had reached 1300kcal on noom, it was only about 1000 on cronometer. I was also surprised by this severe caloric deficit….my maintainence calories are 2150….so it was less than half of what i need.

  • An ad for Noom came on before this video lol. I signed up for Noom last year and hated it. The green, yellow, red food coding was such a joke

  • But couldn’t the discussion about long term results apply to any diet? I know the long term results of specific diets are poor. The medical weight management clinic I go to discusses behaviours that have been associated with better long term control such as regular journaling.

  • I tried Noon for 2 days. I quit it because I didn’t find it helpful for the way I eat and my knowledge level. I’m obese and losing weight. At my highest I weighed 310 pounds. I’ve lost 87 pounds without surgery. I weigh myself every morning before eating or drinking anything and naked. My weight doesn’t fluctuate much. I may lose or gain.3 pounds from day to day. Weighing myself every day doesn’t mess with me mentally too much but it does help me continue to lose weight.

  • I’d love to hear your opinion on the Ate app! I’ve been using it for about a week and I really like it! It’s really just a mindfulness food journal which is way more my style and different than any other “health” app I’ve seen.

  • Calorie budgeting is good, actually. I lost 50 pounds and stopped my hypertension, gastric distress and acid reflux along the way.

    And, no, nuts and oils are not “healthy.” A 120 calories per tablespoon food with no satiety is something you should be careful with. If you are telling your clients that you shouldn’t measure out their olive oil and keep it to a minimum, then you are a crank

  • The pics don’t match with the foods you mention at all. Boiled eggs you show omelette. Boiled potatoes you show fatty potato wedges with greasy dips.

  • My mother used to say
    You want to lose weight
    Close you mouth simple ������������love you mum and dad
    See you in paradise I love you.
    Just have a balanced diet.
    Moderation in everything U need carbs to lose weight
    So a little every day.
    Go steady on the fruit as it can also make you gain weight and be carful also with water
    2litles a day is a stupid myth
    My cousin died drinking to much water.
    Just excersise. Eat moderation
    That’s it simple

  • Hey Whitney Simmons I’m so obsessed with your matte lips they always look so smooth and not over drying I’ve been binge watching videos trying to find what color and brand you use what color do you use? Btw I love you so much have been a susbriber forever your the best you and Nikki are the only you tubers I watch ever!!

  • Nuts/Seeds/Oils can be really healthy when you eat the right portion size for your weight/physical activity level and definitely shouldn’t be labeled bad foods. Our bodies need a certain amount of fat.

  • Has cutting gluten helped with your psoriasis? My doctor once told me that it helps but I never tried it, so I would love to know if it helped you!

  • Yeah, I too am guilty of jumping through weight loss plan to others as well, I do believe that I must have tested every single fat reduction program that was available, but eventually not one of them helped me to lose and maintain the weight off. I ended up trying for the very last time with the Custokebon Secrets simply because my work buddy who told me incredible things about it and so far to date I’ve effectively dropped 18 lbs in 4 weeks!

  • okay this video just made me realize how much i am labeling foods as bad or good. I LOVE vans waffles and beyond burgers but i always feel slightly guilty when i eat them…. NOT ANYMORE cause Whitney eats them lol

  • As I start on my healthy lifestyle change I keep you in the back of my mind for motivation and love referring back to your channel for advice �� Thank you for existing We all love you ��

  • Heys guys and gals. I wanted to showcase a small turmeric clothing line that I have created. Thank you and have a nice day!

  • And where are we going to find yogurt That doesn’t have poisonous genetically modified organism in it? I mean I looked for it everywhere and I haven’t found any yet

  • The hot italian sausages are INCREDIBLE! I feel the same about sausage, and when I tried the Beyond Meat links I lost my mind. I even got my bf hooked!

  • You are a dangerous quack like every other dietician I have ever worked with. I am 54 and have been dieting since I was 6. I have dieted my way to 216 pounds. In the last month I have found noom and Greg doucette. I have lost 11 pounds by trying Greg’s awesome recipes and I finally am able to let go of my guilt and shame over never being able to have a healthy weight by listening to his knowledgeable explanations and by reading the CBT articles that Noom provides. I have met many dieticians in the course of my horrible, shaming quest for good health. None of you were helpful. Yes, Greek yogurt and egg whites are healthy, but never had any advice on how to gag them down. That’s where Greg is doing a huge service to people like me. He makes delicious, recipes where you feel like you are eating the best tasting food ever and the weight started coming off with no deprivation. I was so scarred by dieticians quizzical looks and obvious disbelief when I would say I gain weight eating 1200 calories a day. As a group, you speil crap that doesn’t help people who are struggling. Look at how many times you have reinvented the food pyramid/rainbow, etc. You can’t figure out what people are supposed to be eating as a bunch of pseudo-scientists who are so obviously influenced by food lobbyists. Shame on you. Greg and Noom have helped me more in one month than your profession has helped me in 35years.
    Also, even though you are very attractive, your gestures, particularly, your amazingly frequent use of air quotes makes you a turn off…You get harder to watch over time…Greg screaming the truth like the parrot from Aladdin is strangely addictive. You should stay in your own lane and work on how dieticians could become a relevant group for people who struggle with weight issues. Obesity in North America with all its linked diseases has become an epidemic under your watch.

  • 1. Broccoli, 2. no yogurt if you have melinine, 3. Extra firm tofu, 4. Apples & apple sauce 5. Sweet potato 6. Citrus fruits (oranges, grapefruits, tangerines) 7. Beets 8. Portebello. Mitaki mushrooms 9. Potatoes red 10. Whole eggs

  • Hey girl, love the channel! Probably shouldn’t eat cool whip it’s all processed and never use a microwave!! Especially if you are being healthy! Good Luck!

  • I wish I had found your video before signing up for the “Free Trial” which they try to shame you into spending $18.37 for and then immediately try to get you to purchase “add Ons” before finally telling you that the program will cost $$ per month automatically collected on the last day of your trial. I will probably (no definitely) cancel before the deadline and this still leaves me searching. I am definitely not a millenial (my charecature actually looks alot like me) as I will be 69 in October. I have been managing my Type 2 diabetes quite well (last A1c was 6.5) and I also have a cancer and heart history. Prostate cancer 2017 and a triple bypass in 2018. Last week a biopsy on my spine which thankfully showed no metastatic bone disease although I did end up with a punctured lung in the process. I have access to two “Registered Dieticians” like yourself in my area. One associated with my Endocrinologist and the other at our local Cancer Center, so I will again try to get some assistance from those wonderful ladies. Trying to get help though it seems, is definitely not an easy task. Or at least not a task that anyone wants to undertake. All of my doctors tell me I need to loose weight (5’7″ 217 lbs) mostly belly fat. I tell them, great how do I do that and none of them are able to devise a plan for me. Anyway thanks for the great video, I already got the book recomendation on my Phone Kindle app. Best wishes to you keep up the good work of education all of us.

  • I liked it/thought it would work at first but I agree with most of the sentiment here: 1200 calories a day (really restrictive), daily weigh ins, 300 calorie ‘red’ food allotment (includes nuts and some other things that should be considered healthy, but you’re forced to put them in this other camp). The green recipes (or at least the bulk of the recipes that I saw) were almost exclusively veggie soups; I love soup but again, it didn’t feel realistic, butternut squash soup twice a day instead of sandwiches or entrees that have mass and aren’t only veggies? XD not realistic to me. Also the coaching didn’t feel real or personal at times, the thing the ex-noom employee said range true sometimes there were just phrases that felt like stock encouragement/not personal. I’m really loving the idea of debunking such intense restriction and going the intuitive eating/anti diet (but NOT anti health obviously, I want to be healthy/feel good), thank you for this video!

  • Based on this video and people’s comments, it seems like noom works great for people who don’t know anything about nutrition and are likely eating lots of unhealthy foods and large portions. It seems like it helps people understand what a balanced diet is and how to eat healthier while still incorporating your favorites. Typical weight loss issues like eating better foods and eating appropriate portions will help some people, but a lot of people are struggling with weight loss for reasons other than that. Personally, I gained a lot of weight on a medication I was taking and I’m struggling to lose it. It doesn’t sound like noom would help someone like me, because my issue isn’t large portions or junk food and I already understand nutrition.

  • Hey Whitney! The beyond meat isn’t as good for you as you’d think it is. Can you imagine how processed that can be? They genetically mutate things to taste like meat. If it was plant based, you’d be able to eat it without cooking it. On the package it says to not eat it without cooking it first. Interesting, huh? There’s been a lot of claims about the Beyond Meat burger and how they genetically modify foods to make them taste like meat, a lot of them having to do with carcinogens. Be safe Whitney! Everyone is just trying to make money, healthy or not.:)

  • Please don’t boil potatoes and sweet potatoes.
    That’s like eating baby food.
    Roast or bake regular and sweet potatoes.
    And steam your vegetables. Boiling is very old school.

  • I struggled with Noom because I have to cook from scratch because of allergies and it was pretty fast for me to lose all my “red” budget on healthy fats leaving no room for anything but cooking oil (mainly olive and avocado) and a bit of nuts.

  • A you tuber alisha Mari does noon. You should watch her video. I’d love to see you talk about her. I started watching her video before you, it caught me because she lost a good amount of weight and look good. Then I watched yours and you told me the truth. Glamorous her video at the finest. It caught me like a spider too a web.

  • Wow wow!! So all those people saying exercise and eat more healthily are wrong. Just eat some of these foods and nothing else and you will never suffer illness, obesity or any other physical or mental pain.
    Do not trust anyone but those saying these things.
    Must finish now the nice carer is coming to sedate me.

  • Abbey, why do you use air quotes that much? There are really worse apps than Noom in my opinion, but you seem really critical. It’s pretty hard to make solid nutrition advices without offending or annoying someone if you have such high standards

  • You and Keltie O’Connor are changing the game when it comes to relationships with food.
    She helped me so much to accept my weight and to accept that I will want “soul food” sometimes. I havent gone on a food binge in 3 months now and have consistently lost weight as a side effect of not stressing so hard about food.
    You two are chef kisses fantastic!

  • I am a current Noom user(this is my 4th months using Noom). The reason I signed up was to improve my relationship with food, and to loose a little bit of weight. Honestly I don’t think this video is very fair to the Noom experience at all, because it actually supports everything you support. The course started with basic nutritional knowledge, then food behavior and it’s relationship to emotions, how to fight thought distortions, cravings, loosing “bad food” mentality, then moved into intuitive eating/tune in to your hunger cues and mindfulness. It did categorize food into red yellow and green based on calorie density, but it also emphasizes that it is only an indication of calorie density, and encourages users to eat moderate amount of high calories density Whole Foods like nuts. I admit I was also skeptical like you when I saw the advertisement, as the ad is not very true to the using experience at all. it’s more like taking a daily course, instead of a “weight loosing program that teaches you to count calories”. It significantly improved my relationship with food, helped me loosing 10lbs and becoming a much more mindful eater. It even helped me with other aspects of life as relationship with food is really just relationship with self&the world. I am your subscriber, i find a lot of your videos very informative and backed with science. But to be honestly a little disappointed about how much this particular video jumped to conclusion too quickly.

  • Loose weight but get cancer in the process. They failed to mention the harmful pesticides and fertilizers in most of these products that are more harmful to your health.

  • I liked Noom when I used it, but they definitely needs to screen for eating disorders because a lot of their advice could be used very, very badly

  • I’m on week 7 with Noom. Its the only “diet ” that has helped me mentally. Sure, 1200 calories is hard for me at times but I’m learning more about food/behavior. I’ve only lost 10lbs so far but I’m okay with slow progress because at least I’m losing and gaining more long term goals. I love the psychology of Noom. The Cons are price, lack of coaching and database of food varies. I’m sticking to Noom ��

  • Love this video! Just a tip if you don’t like the packaging for the oatmeal, you can easily make your own if you get all those ingredients in bulk and mix it together yourself! Saves money and packaging ��

  • I love almond milk but stop buying it because the almond farmers use toooo much water to there crops, tons of pesticides and they use bees to pollinate there crops which btw they treat there bees poorly. Don’t believe me, do your research. Save the water, save yourself and save the bees. ��

  • Whitney Simmons yes I know you mean when you talked about the cucumber fresh girl but I guess that’s okay I guess I know exactly where you were going Bam Bam Bam let your homeboy fever hit you with that non-stop delicious just the way you like it. I know I would����������������������������������������������

  • Great video, I was gluten free for two years,doctors thought it was my health and tummy trouble, went vegan all symptoms gone, and iI can eat gluten!❤

  • Ever had a coffee that tastes metallic, eat the orange type sweet potato,detox, and taste the difference the next day in your coffee or water!! Also only eat organic foods! Better still, Chromium! Detox’s heavy metals!

  • Stop drinking almond milk it’s terrible for the environment and is killing millions of bees. There’s lots of alternatives. Love you tho! You’re video are awesome.

  • Hi a new friend here this is nice love it it so perfect for me and more protein love vegetables and fruits thanks for sharing can I share it please thanks

  • Have tried purple Brussels sprouts?! I went to Trader Joe’s recently and saw they had purple ones! They are slightly sweeter and so delicious!! ��

  • When I used it, I got a response from a person, once a day on weekdays, it is possible for it to work for some people but it was not for me. It helped with my motivate me here and there but it wasn’t enough for me to continue to commit to it.

  • Oats IS gluten free!! It’s just that normally the company’s that produces them often handle other non gluten free cereals.. so girl if your not super extremely sensitive.. go a head and buy ordinary ��

  • Normal oats dosent contain gluten. So you could just by an ordinary bag of oats, add water and cook it. And then you have oatmeal �� I make mine in the microwave in the container that I eat it from so I have almost no cleaning to do ❤️ super easy!

  • I was ready to invest some money into this app and one of the first requirements is to weigh yourself everyday. That’s when I immediately quit. Nothing worse than weighing yourself and obsessing over a number that really does not mean anything, especially having had an eating disorder.

  • Bob’s red Mill makes GF oatmeal… In steel cut, reg, as thick cut. I just made the steel cut in the crock pot. I doubled what the bag said and put it in the fridge after adding Maple syrup, cinnamon, and apples. You can do this in individual small containers to grab and go… Just throw some almond milk on it before you leave so that it’s not too thick when you reheat. Also check out GF DF pancake and waffle recipes. I make a big batch and freeze them. They pop apart super easy and I throw them in the toaster. BTW a toaster oven is the same as an air fryer… Except you can fit a pizza in a large toaster oven��. I use my toaster oven more than anything in my house…I can’t stand to microwave certain left overs. ��

  • I never know whether to like or dislike your videos because I always agree with your main point but not many of the points you make in support of it LOL

  • I signed up for the trial period and only stayed on for like, 1 day. I didn’t have a scale at home (at the time) and the prompts to make sure I weighed myself were frustrating, plus the first time I entered a food and it turned read (I don’t even think it was something really “bad”, just high in good fats) I felt so bad that I had to delete it immediately. Following you helped me to know immediately that the app wasn’t for me honestly, and if it wasn’t for you I might have let myself feel guilty about that red food.

  • I did Noom for about 6 months or so and lost 15 lbs but after I stopped the weight quickly came back. The “coaches” sucked and would only check in on me once a week regardless of how many times I reached out for support. I would not recommend this app to anyone who wants to eat intuitively. I would love to see an app from Abbey focusing on eating intuitively!

  • I like noom. So far I have learned a lot. It’s not a bad thing to weigh daily. I have tried a lot of diets. Noom helped to remind me of something’s I forgot. I see it as promoting increased activity with limiting your intake, And so far I have lost 7 lbs lbs in one month. So Abbey what do you suggest. To help people lose weight. The only thing wrong with noom is it cost to much.

  • That blouce/ dress looks wonderful on you! Thank you for reviewing apps like these. I cant express how helpful your videos are for someone like me whose trying to live a healthier life style.

  • Have you done a video on Optavia? I don’t do diet plans per se, but this one looks insane (in the worst way)!! I would love to see a video on it if you haven’t done one already.

  • Hey, just wanted to say that oatmeal does not contain any gluten! If I am right, the producer of the product needs to get a special label to be able to sell it as ”gluten free”. I think it has something to do with the ground where it’s planted and that the soil may contain traces of other grains previously planted, which do contain gluten. I think that the label is mostly there if someone very allergic/ intolerant is buying any oatmeal and can not have any gluten. ������
