8Noom Coach: Health & Weight
There are two secrets to a successful diet. You have to go in with a plan (one with a solid set of rules), and then you have to stick to that plan. If you can hold up your end of the bargain, Noom Coach is the perfect app to guide you to your goal. The app is essentially an all-in-one coach, nutritionist and motivator. It provides the platform you need to plan a diet, log your meals, set up a workout regimen (then pushes you to stick to them!) and track your progress. This app is kind of unbelievably easy to use. Separated by three tabs, you can quickly find what you’re looking for, whether it be to log a snack or meal, work out or to update your weight. I had no trouble finding my way around Noom, as everything was organized in a logical way. One really great feature about this app is that you must make your goals in advance. Then the app will help you achieve these goals by creating a reasonable diet and exercise plan.
To keep you on track, it will create a workout schedule (which you can modify according to your schedule), and then will remind you when it’s time to hit the gym. The app features tons of different types of exercise that you can log and accurately measure — everything from walking to yoga. These factors certainly makes it difficult for a person to justify excuses. The app also allows you to share your progress on Facebook, so you can celebrate your victories with friends and family. If you ask me, an audience is also a good way to keep yourself in check!
