Covid has affected our lives in countless ways, and in some ways, things will never be the same. One of the biggest shifts has been from in-person to virtual interaction which made Zoom a household name in only a few weeks.
The Heath and wellness industry has had to “evolve or die” during the quarantine, and even the venerable Weight Watchers Meetings have shifted from studios and church basements to virtual workshops.
Another big winner from this shift has been the weight loss app, Noom (Yes, two of the biggest quarantine winners were Zoom and Noom!) which doubled their revenue during 2020.
You could say that Noom “got fat” off the pandemic, but they probably wouldn’t like that as they don’t even use the word, “diet” on their website at noom.com!
Think Noom, Not Zoom for Weight Loss!
Often mistakenly called, the “Zoom diet,” or “Zoom weight loss,” Noom is a popular app that uses personal coaching and positive behavioral change to help inspire weight loss and wellness that should last a lifetime.
In fact, Noom prides itself on a very personalized weight loss experiment that starts with a free evaluation consisting of 20 or so questions that help them understand you and your weight loss goals better before even getting started.
(By the way, I actually tried Noom myself, and am happy to recommend it!)
So, for an app-based weight loss program that includes personal coaching and positive behavioral change, think Noom. For remote meetings where people are in little squares on your screen (and probably not wearing pants) think Zoom!
The confusion between Noom and Zoom makes sense though, as they both rely on more efficient, virtual interaction from your home. (I’ve even seen customer reviews that mistakenly call the diet plan Zoom, haha!)
Ok, so hopefully I was able to clear up any confusion about Zoom weight loss and steer you towards Noom. If you do consider joining Noom, know how pricing works so there are no unexpected surprises when you get billed.
Thanks for reading this far, and good luck Zooming and/or Nooming!
