One of the best things about Noom is that unlike other diets, it doesn’t forbid specific foods, which means it’s suitable for vegans, vegetarians, and even people who like to have a drink in the evening. This means if you’re a vegan, or someone who wants to follow a plant-based diet, you can continue to eat everything you are now.
That’s because Noom focuses on education and moderation, and that’s how it allows you to keep the weight off and maintain a consistent mass when you’re down to goal. It does this by dividing foods into various buckets: Green, Yellow and Red, with classification based on the amount of calories per ounce.
Plant-based staples — fruit and vegetables — fall into the Green and Yellow camps. You can eat or drink whatever you want, as long as you don’t exceed the budget. It’s all about striking a balance, and Noom provides you with the tools and understanding needed to make those decisions.
Its aim is to educate you on how to consume things in moderation and the impact different foods can have. By being conscious of what you’re eating, you’ll lose weight and (hopefully) keep it off, as you start to make these categorizations in your head as you progress on your journey.
Can Noom be Plant-Based?
Yes, Noom can be plant-based. You can eat whatever you want, so long as you’re consuming food and drink in moderation and aren’t exceeding your daily calories, both total and when broken down by color group.
