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.

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. 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 weight loss program, 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.

green foods list

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.

yellow foods list

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.

A Team of Experts Created This System To Make Eating Healthy Simpler

When it comes to many of the fad diets out there, one of the many concerns out there is who is actually creating them.

It’s easy for anyone with some knowledge of how to lose weight to come up with a system to sell you that may not be all that healthy for your body.

But with the noom weight loss program, it helps to know that you’re getting a system that was created by a team of health experts.

Experts that know what it takes to help you lose weight the right way.

You’re getting advice from both nutritionists and registered dietitians, which gives you comfort of knowing your health is a priority.

This is especially true when it comes to the food database.

You want to know that the information you’re getting there is accurate.

And with a team of experts behind the scenes, you can feel confident that success with this program is achievable.

Noom Offers 2 Types of Programs

It’s important to keep in mind that Noom has two different types of programs created specifically for the user.

There is both a Healthy Weight Program, and a Diabetes Management Program.

Each program has a color system that is created specifically for the users dietary needs.

Basically, for anyone on the healthy weight program, the color coded system will have you focus more on calorie density foods.

But if you are on the diabetes management program, the system will focus more on carbohydrate density foods.

So for anyone that struggles with diabetes, it will be important to make sure you select the right program for you.

Don’t Worry About Falling Off Track

We all know that trying to manage any weight loss program can be difficult.

It can be so easy to get off track when it comes to healthy eating.

The great thing about noom is that you get personalized feedback when it comes to your food choices.

As long as you are making sure to log all of your meals in their database, noom will make suggestions on many of your food choices to help keep you on track.

They will even make recommendations if you find yourself struggling to make healthy food choices.

For many, this will be important since more people have found success with weight loss when having that extra set of eyes holding them accountable for their actions.

Interested In Trying The Noom Diet?

With any weight loss program, the toughest thing can be getting started.

Not knowing if a particular program will work out for you is a legitimate fear for anyone.

Well the great thing about noom is that they allow you to try out their program free for 14 days.

If you feel that it something that will not work out for you, you can easily cancel before your 14 days are up.

This is a great opportunity to find out if this program can be the solution to your weight loss struggles.

And with Noom’s green foods list, finding healthy foods to eat is that much simpler.

But if you’re still not convinced on the effectiveness of this program, I recommend that you take a look at my Noom Coach Weight Loss Review.

It will give you a more detailed breakdown of what this program has to offer.

So if you have any questions or feel like sharing your thoughts on the program, please feel free to do so below in the comment section.

I would love to hear from you.

I have been on Noom for 5 months and LOVE it! It gives small ideas/tips/advice and short term, feasible goals that make eating right and exercising fun and 2nd nature. The cognitive behavioral approach is very similar to my daughter’s special ed. It basically mirrored the idea “if you break things down in short-easy to reach goals- initially focused on rewards then slowly titrating away to longer- it gives a better chance for this to succeed”. I have lost 29.4 lbs to date and have been given tasks to MAKE SURE I have treats, rewards, extra sleep, etc. so I have not felt deprived- hence harping on the bad. I have been given so much science behind why I slip that I actually did not during the holidays. It was fabulous and I cannot say enough about how much I am enjoying this!

Laurie Luchs - December 31, 2019

This does sound like a good diet but is there anyway one who doesn’t have a cell phone join or am I just out of luck?

    Ralph - January 1, 2020

    Hi Laurie. Since everything is done through an app, you need smart phone unfortunately.

Kevin - August 27, 2019

1. Can I update my meal data from a website or does it need to be thru the phone app?
2. Does the Noom app sync with Garmin Connect or other movement tracking app?

    Ralph - September 3, 2019

    Hey Kevin. Everything must be done through your mobile phone. And yes, Noom does sync with Garmin Connect, along with many other apps.

Marilyn Hart - August 9, 2019

I don’t have a mobile phone and can’t use this diet. How do I cancel it without having a mobile app

    Ralph - August 14, 2019

    Hi Marilyn. Unfortunately, the only way to cancel is via the app. You have to contact your health specialist, and they will process everything for you.

Marilyn Taylor - May 13, 2019

I have been on the Noom diet for 8 weeks now
I have lost 40 pounds and I have COPD and EMPHYSEMA my doctors are so impressed that they each took down the name of the program I am on and is sharing with their overweight patients using me as an example. It is so satisfying for me to be able to do this program and talk with no worries in the group. Well worth the money!!!!

    Ralph - May 13, 2019

    Congrats Marilyn on your weight loss success! It must be an amazing feeling to find something that actually works for you. This will give others that are thinking about trying Noom a lot of hope that the program will also get them results. Keep up the great work, and please keep us updated on your continued success.

    Vivian - August 31, 2019

    That is great Marilyn. That equals five pounds per week; almost a pound a day. I haven’t found anything that works that fast. Seems unbelievable and not healthy to me to lose that much weight that fast. Almost every program or diet promises to lose 1-2 lbs. per week if followed. Unbelievable! I’ve been on Noom two weeks and have lost 2 lbs. doing everything I’m suppose to do.

Cherie - April 1, 2019

Hi. I am new using Noom and am trying to switch from calorie dense foods to ligher versions. I ate shredded wheat this morning, which seems pretty light, and it was analyzed as a red food. I just don’t understand!

    Ralph - April 5, 2019

    Hi Cherie,

    The goal is to fill your belly up using less calories. Based on Noom calculations, It would take more shredded wheat to do that (thus more calories), compared to lets say fruits and vegetables. I hope this makes sense.

Linda - March 7, 2019

I am new to Noom, but what attracted me to this program was the color coding of the foods. I can see how that will be quite useful for me. What I’m having a hard time with, however, is how the foods are coded certain colors. If I decide to have a bean burro for dinner and search for bean burro, it classifies it as a yellow food. HOWEVER, if I just want the tortilla, it classifies it as a red food. Is this because of the combination? I like to make breakfast burritos and wraps and don’t necessarily find the particular combinations in the food diary?

    Kim - March 15, 2019

    I noticed this too but if you look up healthy burritos wraps the one I use goes in at yellow my first pick was of just burrito and it came in the red section. My brand is Ole Xtreme Wellness tortilla wrap, lots of fiber and tastes great.

    Kelly K Geistler - March 15, 2019

    Hello! I’m just another noom user and not a dietitian or anything but I was a chef for 13 years and I’ve found that having the most accurate food log for the colors works best for me if I break things down into their ingredients instead of trying to put in a similar combination item. Unless the actual item exists in the system, e.g. a “Caribou Sausage and Egg Biscuit”, it’s been better for me for accuracy purposes to just add the individual ingredients, and it only takes a little more time.
    For example, today I knew I was going to Chipotle at lunch, and they have a nutrition calculator on their website. Instead of adding “Kelly’s Chipotle Chicken Burrito,” I just went by the websites portion information and logged each burrito item separately. It took me maybe 3 minutes. Turns out, almost everything I put in my burrito besides the cheese was green or yellow! But when I just entered “chicken burrito,” it was a red food! I could also determine by looking at it this way, what things to tell them to go easy on when I went through the line (rice, black beans, cheese, sour cream) and didn’t have that dread that I was about to ingest three meals worth of calories.
    Anyway…hopes this helps!

      sammi mesaros - April 7, 2019

      I go to hot heads which is a equivalent to Chipotle, I’ve found the same exact thing. I want my green dang it! The sour cream though is off, kids sour cream is green??

      Kimberly - September 24, 2019

      Thank you!! This is very helpful!

        Ralph - September 24, 2019

        You’re welcome Kimberly!

      Nikole - November 24, 2019

      Love this approach thanks for sharing

Kirsten - February 22, 2019

I’ve just joined the trail this week and have lost 4kgs so far, but I’m struggling with recipes. We cook about 95% of all our foods including “clean” granola, soups and evening meals. Is there a recipe builder in the App, so that I can create our favourites recipes once and then add appropriate portions into my diary?

    Ralph - February 25, 2019

    Congrats on your success thus far Kirsten. I don’t think Noom allows you to build out your own recipe, but you should be able to save some of your favorites.

      Mike - April 4, 2019

      Noom does have a recipe builder. Not as robust as the my fitness pal one but it is good!

        Ralph - April 4, 2019

        Oh I wasn’t aware of that. Thanks for the info Mike!

          Katherine - June 29, 2019

          The recipe builder on Noom that I found is only available when you are logging in your food. i wish they had the option to add a recipe to the “recipes” area so I can add and save it for later. I cook 95% of my foods and have a limited diet do to WLS Gastric sleeve back in 2012 and am trying to get some gain

      Cheryl - July 1, 2019

      Maybe you can use another app and then sync it to Noom?

    Sherry - February 27, 2019

    While I am doing Noom, I still use Mynetdiary app, which allows you to put in foods and build your recipe and keep it. That way you know the calories and all the nutrients in it and it has made it easy to do that and then record my calories and the like in my Noom app unitl Noom as the saem capabilities. If you use it or any other app that allows for recipe creations, make sure you name your recipe, so that you can use it over and over, ex. in the beginning I used my initials, now all my recipes use my last name and I can find it easily.

    Brittany - March 5, 2019


    I have added ingredients and saved them as a recipe. In the app when logging food click on the steaming pot symbol and click “create a new dish”. Hope this helps!

    Kelly K Geistler - March 15, 2019


    Hey Kristen! You can go the steaming pot route as suggested below, or this link goes to a page where you can put in the whole recipe and also the servings, and it will give you the per serving nutrition label that you can then input into your log as a “new item”.

      Lisa - April 5, 2019

      Wow thats a great find! I am going to give it a try! Thanks for sharing it!! I love noom. Ive lost 10 lbs and am exercising and feeling great.

    Selena - March 19, 2019

    In the log your food section, click on the icon of the cooking pot. That allows you to build your recipes. It’s supper easy to do. I log all of my ingredients, how many servings it makes and then how many of those servings I ate during a meal. Super easy and it saves the info for next time.

    Louise - May 29, 2019

    Hello Kristen!
    You CAN enter your own recipes! I do it all the time for the same reason you mention. I love to cook.

    Here is how you do it:

    Go to Home
    Go to log your meals
    Tap on the meal or snack you wish to log
    At the top you will see three options for entering info – a magnifying glass for entering individual items, and to the right of that a Recipe area where you can name your dish and input the ingredients and amounts of each. To the right of that there is also a barcode scanner which I have found very helpful. They don’t have every product but they have many which saves a lot of time.

    Enjoy. Isn’t it fun to feel like you can do this? I have lost a few pounds so far and am loving all the articles and smart interface.


      EG - June 13, 2019

      Is this available on the iOS app? I don’t find what you describe.

      Kimberly - August 8, 2019

      If you add your own recipe does it classify your recipe under what color it is?

    Candice - September 3, 2019

    The app does include a recipe builder, just select the pot in the middle of the additions screen. I’ve created (or modified) lots of my own recipes. I do wish we could share them directly, though–pretty sure Noom owns ’em now. I love the barcode option, too, which makes it really easy to log food. Best part is the curriculum; it’s well-sequenced and gives us step-by-step understanding of how to recognize and break habits, of what hormones are doing to try to sabotage our efforts, tips and tricks for self-talk and exercise, and much more. Kudos to the instructional content & design team!

Anna Lynn Alvarado-Bower - February 18, 2019

so i am looking in to this app, my biggest issue is the Dr. Pepper intake, as i already follow and eat the majority of foods on the green list as does my son. i would need my coach to help me stay away from the soda to completely wean get my self off..

    Ralph - February 25, 2019

    Hi Anna. Yea I think many people struggle with finding discipline to stay away from foods that aren’t doing you any good. Working with one of Noom’s specialist should help you out with this. Just make sure to make them aware of your lack of restraint when it comes to the soda.

    Jeannie - March 14, 2019

    Hi Anna. 🙂

    I am a Mt. Dew drinker and I found it to be far more sustainable as a lifestyle change to not cut out the soda, but to just have a small glass of it (4 to 6 ounces over ice with a straw) when I really want some. I found that I really did not need the entire bottle like I had been drinking.

    That enables me to have my Mt. Dew in moderation and I find that I enjoy it a lot more than before since I’m not just mindlessly guzzling down 16 or more ounces at once. It leaves me with plenty of red calories for the day too!

    Cutting it out is too restricting and it just made me feel trapped. lol

    I hope maybe that helps and you can make it work for you too? Wishing you all the success!

      Hi Jeannie - March 16, 2019

      I used to drink Mt. Dew until a friend of mine went to the dentist. He and his dentist were discussing his diet when my friend mentioned that I drank several cans of Mt. Dew each day. The dentist told him to tell me to STOP! Reason: acid level. On a scale of 0 to 10, water is a 0, car batteries are a 10 and Mt. Dew is a 7. I was able to quit by trading it for water treated with trace minerals. (I could not/can not stomach plain water. Bottled water is undrinkable). Treated with trace minerals, the water tastes like well water, which I like. The trace minerals also help the digestive system, just don’t use too much! It was a weaning process, did not happen overnight.

      Paula - July 3, 2019

      I’m the same but with Dr. Pepper. Yes, I know it is bad for me (teeth, sugar content…) but on Noom I budget for 4-6 ounces and know I can still enjoy it as a treat. Noom doesn’t advocate for a quick fix, it’s a long-term program that realizes you are a human being. I used to have a difficult time driving past a McDonalds without getting a large $1 Dr. Pepper. With Noom, my intake of Dr. Pepper is 1/10th what it once was. I keep those tiny cans in my work fridge and know I can have a small serving when my calorie count allows it.

Wendy - February 4, 2019

Enjoying the program immensely!! Is there a separate data base to look up food values and calories other than when logging your daily meals?? This would certainly help while shopping 😊

Jayne - February 1, 2019

I used noom last year for 4 months, and lost 22 lbs. I continue to use it, through the free version, for my day to day eating. It works, if you follow it for the 4 months, and it will change the way you look at food totally.
I have read some of the comments, and I too would like to see the database broken down by color so you don’t have to look through each and every item
to find something. I would also like to see the app, maybe at a reduced price,
to link with my fitbit. Having to manually (and remember) to put in my steps
daily is a pain, as I don’t carry my phone everywhere I go for the app to track them.

    Donnyk - March 21, 2019

    You can sync your Fitbit to the Noom app

Robin - January 26, 2019

I am new to Noom, day 5, and i love it so far. If I’m unable to continue after the first 4 months, because of cost,, will I still have access to the trackers? I don’t expect to have access to them but hope so….just in case.
Thank you,

    Katie - February 8, 2019

    If not, My Fitness Tracker is a comparable app. They don’t have the green/yellow/red system though, which I really like.

      Tina - December 6, 2019

      I’m not finding the My Fitness Tracker app, is it still around.

        karen - January 19, 2020

        it’s called MyFitnessPal

John - January 7, 2019

1. Is there a text based list that I can copy? The lists above are images. This would make creating a grocery list much easier.

2. Is the Noom food database (with 3.7M options) available on-line? It seems really cumbersome to have to individually search each food in the app. Again, this would facilitate making a grocery list much easier (being able to use a mouse, keyboard, copy/paste) particularly for items that are pre-packaged. I find it difficult/cumbersome to find Green/Yellow foods that already exist.

    Ralph - January 8, 2019

    Hi John. Unfortunately everything is done through the app on your phone, so I don’t think there is any text based list you could copy and paste it from. However if you find a meal you like, there is a list of ingredients where you could do a screenshot of. I hope this helps.

      dawn - January 18, 2019

      i do not have a cell phone that can do this. is there any other way.

        Ralph - January 21, 2019

        HI Dawn. Unfortunately you do need either a smart phone or tablet to use the program since all the communication is done through the Noom app.

          Joann - February 1, 2019

          And remember you cannot use the app on both your tablet and phone- they are mutually exclusive

        Paula - July 3, 2019

        Google lalymom plus the word Noom. She has a list of green, yellow, and red foods you can download.

          Janice - July 16, 2019

          Super helpful–the list is exactly what I needed. I have been trying to figure out what I could eat by logging in food before I eat it and seeing what color it is and then deleting it (not eating it) if it is red. Having a list is great for planning meals for the week!

    Gayle - January 16, 2019

    John, it would be nice to have the 3.7M options available more easily. It is cumbersome to have to individually search each food. The list above only shows about 40 green foods.

    What I’d like to see in the app is to go to the food list and have a way for it to show me a list of ALL the green foods in the 3.7M. I know there’s more than 40, but I’m not sure I “get” it yet. So many times I’ll go in and search individually for something I think is green and find out it’s yellow. Likewise I’ve been surprised to find out even more foods I think are yellow are actually red.

    It would be nice to periodically be able to peruse a list of all foods of a color.

      Hazel - February 9, 2019

      I totally agree. I have been using for a while now and like the concept. Not having easier access to the food list makes it really hard to plan dishes in advance. This would allow customers to do a much better job of balancing their caloric intake daily.

Gail Ott - January 7, 2019

Can you use splenda or other sweeteners?

    Ralph - January 8, 2019

    You can use whatever you want. Just make sure to log it in so you are able to keep track of your eating habits. The app will let you know if it is recommended to use sweeteners.

    Charlotte David - January 17, 2019

    Gail, I use Truvia which has no calories. It is also the artificial sweetener that my doctor prefers.

Jeanette RATTNER - January 6, 2019

I am currently signed up abd just atarted the free trial period. I am not diabetic (although was told once i was pre-diabetic). I have been told i have a non-alcoholic fatty liver and the md said a low fat low carb diet. Should i switch to the diabetic plan? Can i do this? Also trying intermitten eating and coach doesnt know what it is

    Ralph - January 8, 2019

    Hi Jeanette. I probably would have selected the diabetes program, but you can definitely ask your coach.

Karen S Howard - January 5, 2019

Do you select the green, red & yellows by using a tracker? Is this program a contract or do I cancel anytime.

    Ralph - January 6, 2019

    Hi Karen. The colors are there to help make you aware of the foods you are putting in your system. Depending on the food item you eat, it will affect your calorie budget. So it’s important to make sure you log them in. Noom offers a 14 day trial in which you can cancel anytime before your 14 days are up. If you choose to go past the 14 days, you will then be charged. Hope this answers your question.

Linda Ruiz - January 4, 2019

Hi there I am interested in trying the 14 day free trial if I choose not to do it after the 14 days is it a struggle to cancel ?

    Ralph - January 4, 2019

    Hi Linda. If you decide you don’t want to continue with the program, you need to make sure to do it before the 14 days are up, not after. All you have to do is contact your coach within the app and tell them you want to cancel. Just make sure to do it before the 14 days. I hope this helps.

Virginia S Carreau - December 31, 2018

I have to watch the carbs I consume so my sugar level will stay closer to 100 when tested in the Am. Should probably go with the diabetic management program.

    Ralph - January 1, 2019

    Yea that makes sense Virgina. Make sure to also speak with your health coach about it as well. Thanks for commenting.

Patty - December 26, 2018

Are there recipes or menus?

    Ralph - January 2, 2019

    Yes they do Patty!

Denise - December 24, 2018

I have been on noom for 4 weeks. I have lost 10.6# i positively love this program.
I learned that my previous way of eating was nearly all red foods and a lot of yellow.
And very few green foods.
Now its the total opposite. Lots of green and yellow foods are moderate. And most of the time i am well under the red foods goal for the day!

I would recommend Noom to anyone who needs to control their eating habits and to lose weight!

I especially love how Noom gets into the WHY of how and how much and when and what we eat! I love the Noom nerds!

    Ralph - January 2, 2019

    This is so awesome to hear Denise! I’m glad it’s working out for you. This provides a lot of motivation for those on the fence about joining. Keep it up!

    suzanne - January 30, 2019

    Hi, Denise. I just started with the app on 1/2/19 with the goal to lose 30 lbs. I have lost 10 as of today. I also like the red, yellow, green groups and it has helped me make better choices especially during the day. It helps me plan, too. So, when I grocery shop, I decide what I want to eat during the week, then use the app to prioritize my meals throughout the week and select better options based on the color; rather than looking through a million green foods to see what appeals to me. My favorite thing, though, is the daily instruction course that I work through each morning (takes about 10 minutes, but it is fun and very informative). Oh and my group that has been assigned to me is really encouraging and helpful. (Sometimes I help them, but it is usually the other way around!).

I signed up & have been following the program for a week now. I have two questions:
1. How to look at the food database – the horizontal line drop-down menu icon doesn’t offer that option, as far as I can see.
2. I’ve read other comments alluding to a barcode scanner, but I don’t see any option to select it. How is it activated?
Any guidance you can provide would be much appreciated.

Hi, I am on the Noom program going on my 4th week and 4 lbs loss, and I love it. I like documenting what I eat daily as it keeps me on target. Actually, I am so surprised how much calories I was consuming when I documented my intake that I taught myself what a cup of rice “looks” like and just eat the a cup of spanish rice rather the shoveling the big serving spoon full of rice to my plate.

I also like the daily reading prior to completing my daily intake as it motivates me to keep going. Noom helps me prepare my mental state what I should eat and I am the one that makes the decision to move forward or go the lighter path.

So I am disappointed of what I am reading in the blogg, because I am successful of what I put into this program (and it is cheap enough) because it is all about me, myself and I. Noom is not shoveling the food down my throat, but guiding me in the right direction to make the right decision to reach my goal weight to eat the bigger portion or to lose the weight to eat the smaller portion. They coach me into making the right decision and I make a decision myself.

My coach is very good to me. What ever I ask she answers me right away. I also have communication with my group and I read their accomplishments and barriers. And believe me I have run into my elephants , but I think of the purpose of the program and think my elephant to go away.

It is what you make of it people. This is not a miracle cure that in one week you’ll be at your weight. It is all about hard work. It is better than weight watchers, as the program has some very good information about the “why” I ate or what I might eat that I have not received from weight watchers.

I’m done. I am at week 4. I paid my three months and I will see where I go from there. If I don’t make it, it is not Noom ‘s fault, it will be ME, I put on the weight myself, and with the guilance from Noom I will take the weight off.

Stop complaining and try it for a few months and work at it, you will see results, BUT you need to work on it. Read their daily encouragements speak chat with your “team” and motivate yourselves. Like I said, my coach is what the word is “coach” she is not a miracle worker, you need to put the effort in to see results.
