Hey everybody… I have PCOS but also binge eating disorder/ disordered eating and I’m trying to find a way to healthfully loose weight. I’m thinking of Noom. Has anyone tried it?

      I also have PCOS and BED. I tried noom to lose weight and found it challenged my mental health a great deal. It was hard to understand their color codes (based around caloric density) and forgive myself for eating too many "red" foods in a day. To Noom chocolate cake and almonds fall in the same category.

      I personally did not like Noom I thought it was very expensive for what it was. You get daily modules that talk and educate about healthy choices etc. I joined for the group potion but I felt my leader person wasn't very engaging and it came off as fake. I did this over a year ago. I also at the time bought the diet and workout plan, but it was very basic and not very tailored.

        @Prettyfig yeah I avoided it after I read some more articles… just started meeting with a nutritionist and it’s going well so wish me luck 😅

      For context, I gained weight after being put on abilifi years ago and then tried fad diets due to my mom’s suggestions for a few years. I went to a dietitian specifically for people with eating disorders and she recommended I allow myself my “forbidden foods”- after eating carbs again a gained a ton of weight. I’ve lost about 25 pounds just from being on Metformin and from a few lifestyle changes but I’ve plateaued. I want to be able to get back into rock climbing and I miss my old body. Any suggestions would be really helpful.
