    Noom Diet

    Noom is dishonest with YOUR money, buyer beware

    Overall Experience:

    Noom intrudes on people, billing without a warning notice. Higher money than they offered at first. Within 20 minutes of their billing coming in, I tried to cancel their worthless subscription.

    They said, oh, we won't bill you again, but you have a whole year subscription now. BS. I don't want their "subscription" with their robotic "counselors" who are shills, their ever-changing upsell charges.

    When I tried to cancel they offered me the same program at HALF the price. That's just not honest in my opinion. Inflating or suddenly deflating money prices on the backs of heavy people who are wanting merely to lose some weight, is, in my opinion, an old "upsell at any cost" door-to-door broom sales model.

    Noom is not a health org. It is first and foremost a money mongering sales org. It IS a diet they offer, nothing new. Eat less, exercise more.

    They charge a load extra for diabetics. They do not work with Keto, or other special diets.

    And some questionable pop psychology you can get on internet for free. Increasing laziness in putting their articles together, in my opinion. At first a little hip, but within days, dry and boring.

    I'd suggest WW (much less expensive, essentially the same model as Noom), or Spark (free), where there are real people who actually are personable and non-robotic.

    Pros and Cons:

    • Initially, their idea
    • Their dishonesty about money, upselling
    • Not giving prior notice for billing, their refusal to refund money even within minutes of their sudden billing
    • Their diet is same old diet with new/old lipstick, it's up to the indiv as always but/and Noom's "science," in my opinion, is questionable
    • Expensive and has flat robot-like "counselors"

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
