fruits and vegetables

When it comes to losing weight, one of the most difficult things for many people is knowing what to eat. So for many, the solution to this problem is to eat less, not knowing more harm than good can be done using this method.

What many fail to realize is, that not eating enough can also cause you to gain weight. This is due to your body trying to conserve the energy that it does have, thus causing your metabolism to slow down.

With Noom’s Green Foods List, no longer do you have to worry about not knowing what’s good for you or not. You are given a list of foods that is rated based on a color coded system which I will get into later. But you’ll find that choosing food items are easier with this type of system.

So the goal of this article, is to show you how you can eat more and still lose weight with the noom weight loss program. So whether you’re already using the program or thinking about using it, you will find this article to be very helpful in understanding the basics of healthy weight loss.

Remember…Losing Weight Is All About CALORIES!!!

If you’re not aware of it by now, losing weight is all about putting your body in a caloric deficit. As long as you are burning more calories than you consume throughout the day, you will lose weight. So it’s important to make sure you are eating the right type of foods. So the goal should be to feel full and satisfied without consuming too many calories.

But is it possible to feel full without having to go over your daily caloric intake?

Yes, as long as you are consuming low-calorie dense foods. These types of foods provide you with a small amount of calories even if they are consumed in high volume. Compared to high-energy dense foods that contain a large amount of calories with a much smaller food volume.

For example, a cup of raisins contains about 500 calories. But if you take that same cup amount, and instead of raisins you consume grapes, that would cost you only 62 calories. You would still get that full feeling without all the added calories.

So how is this possible?…This is made possible by you consuming water rich foods. These type of foods will allow you to eat more and still lose weight in a healthy way.

Why You Should Consume More Water Rich Foods


Since volume plays a huge part in how full and satisfied we feel during a meal, it’s important to find ways to feel full without having to consume all the added calories.

And by consuming foods that are rich in water, the water dilutes the amount of calories in a given food. Thus allowing you to eat more without having to increase your caloric intake.

So when on the Noom Diet you will find yourself selecting food that are considered water rich, and noom makes finding these type of foods simple.

With their very large food database, you should have very little trouble making better food choices to help you reach your weight loss goals.

Noom’s Food Database Has Over 3.7 Million Options To Choose From

What makes the noom weight loss program so effective is that you are able to bring it with you wherever you go. The fact that you can search their food database from your phone, helps you make better food choices throughout the day.

Not only does their database contain food items, but you can also select actual meals with portion sizes which is key to successful weight loss. The calorie amounts are listed next to the food items giving you a clear picture of how your choices will affect your daily calorie budget.

Now we all know that having options is always a great thing, but for many, it can be a bit overwhelming when trying to make the right food choices. So how do you know which foods are right for you? With noom’s color coded system, you know exactly which foods will work for your weight loss needs.

So What’s With All The Colors? An Overview of Noom’s Green Foods List

Noom has three different colors (green, yellow, red) to help users learn which food items are ok to consume. Each food is assigned a color based on calorie density. Not only are you given a color to help you know which foods are ok to eat, but you’re also given a list of the foods to help give you a visual of the foods you like.

Foods that are listed in the green category are low calorie density foods. These are foods that you can eat a lot more of than the yellow and red colored food items. This will allow you to fill yourself up more without adding any unnecessary calories to your diet.

What also makes having this food list very helpful is the fact that you can find alternatives to some of your favorite foods that may not be so healthy for you. But regardless of your selection, having this color coded system makes choosing healthy food items that much easier for you.

    • Hi Marylou! Unfortunately it is designed for mobile only. I would recommend just trying out their trial and see if it is something you can make work for you. Please come back and let me know how it goes. All the best to you:)

  1. I have a question regarding the noom process. My understanding is you can use only an android phone or app and I do not have an android phone so if I get an android tablet can I still access the program?

    • Hi Linda! Noom does have a program for diabetics, but it would be hard for me to say if it will work for you or not since I am not a doctor. So I would also consult with your doctor about this program as well. Hope this helps.

  2. I like the program but do we plan our meals or does noom. Are we given options for each meal to choose from. I’d like to see more of what noom does

    • Hi Mary! Noom doesn’t prepare any foods for you. They give you a list of healthy food items to choose from that fit your caloric needs. There are also recipes for those that struggle with ideas of what to cook. If you’re really interested in seeing what the Noom weight loss program has to offer, there is a 14 day free trial for you to try out. This will give you a chance to see if the program is for you or not.

  3. Hi
    Interested in joining the programme, well at least trying the 14 day free trial. I have multiple sclerosis and wonder if this will affect my suitability for the programme? I can’t see that it would, as diet is not something regularly discussed by MS health practitioners. I can only manage very small amounts of exercise, as I’m not very mobile. Can you help?

  4. Finishing up my first week and I’ve lost 3+ pounds already and…. I haven’t felt deprived or hungry. I even had a beer yesterday! Loving this!!!!

    • Wow Karenina! I really do love hearing about members that are getting results with the program. As long as you keep consistent with this healthy way of eating, the results will only get better! Congrats on your success so far Karenina, and thanks for sharing it with everyone!

  5. How does the program address the “mental aspect “ of dieting?

    I am Type 1; does the Diabetic plan limit carbohydrates or follow the ADA eating plan?

    • Hi Connie! We all know that when it comes to losing weight, eating healthy and daily exercise is necessary to get results. But for many, healthy eating and exercise just isn’t enough. A big reason for that are things like stress, depression, or lack of motivation, which can be huge factors in the type of weight loss results you get. As a personal trainer and kickbox instructor, I’ve talked to many clients and members who struggle a lot with those 3 factors I just mentioned. So having a trainer like me speaking with them is great therapy for them as they work towards a healthier lifestyle. So with Noom, they provide this type of therapy at a much affordable cost by providing you with a coach and support group.

      In terms of the diet plan, they have a diabetes management plan that will be designed just for you based on your answers to their questionnaire. Also, you have the option to choose which food items you eat daily, and noom makes choosing these items much easier based on their color coded system. I hope this answers your question Connie, and thanks for commenting.

    • Hi Luana. If you’ve downloaded the Noom app, you will find that you can change the metrics by clicking settings in the menu.Please let me know if you continue to have issues with it. Thanks for commenting.

  6. I wanna to lose weight and shape my body plzz suggest me a healthy diet chat for daily use through which I can loose weight within mnth period

    • Hi Muzamil. How much weight are you trying to lose? Because a healthy weight loss amount is anywhere from 1-2 pounds per week. Also how active are you in terms of exercise? if you combine both daily exercise and healthy eating, you should be able to get great results. And noom is a great weight loss program that doesn’t just focus on the physical part of losing weight, but also the mental side as well. Please let me know if you have any more questions.

    • You and a lot of people Amy! I’m so glad you’re enjoying it and hope you’re getting the results you’re looking for. Makes me happy to hear things like this.

    • HI Claudia. I’m not a doctor so I wouldn’t be able to recommend which program would be best for you. If you are someone that doesn’t suffer from any form of diabetes and are just looking to lose weight, then Noom’s healthy weight program may work best for you, as they have designed their color coded system based on that particular program. Now if you are someone that does suffer from diabetes, then they do have the diabetes management program where they have designed their program to help those manage it better. I hope this answers your question Claudia.
