The digital health platform’s first book, “The Noom Mindset,” marks its entrance into the offline market
NEW YORK – December 27, 2022 – Noom, the leading psychology-backed behavior change program, today published its first book, “The Noom Mindset: Learn the Science, Lose the Weight.” The book delves into the behavior change techniques that drive Noom’s programs and have helped millions develop better habits and live healthier lives. The book, published by Simon Element, a new lifestyle imprint at Atria Books/Simon & Schuster, and simultaneously released as an audiobook by Simon & Schuster, is available now wherever books and audiobooks are sold.
For over a decade, Noom has leveraged behavioral science to empower people to take control of their health. With a powerful combination of psychology, technology, and human coaching, the company’s behavior change platform has helped millions of people meet their personal health and wellness goals. Now, “The Noom Mindset” takes readers on a deep dive into the psychological principles and science-backed curriculum that drive Noom and offers everyone — from longtime users to those new to the Noom ecosystem — a closer look inside these philosophies and how they can be applied to achieving their goals.
The release of “The Noom Mindset” marks the company’s first release of a physical product after 14 years of a digital-only presence. In a world that is increasingly digital, Noom is investing in the value of analog as part of its ongoing mission to help people everywhere live healthier lives. Part of that mission is Noom’s steadfast commitment to meeting users where they are — for many, a book is the exact touchpoint they need.
“Since the inception of Noom, our business has benefited tremendously from user feedback, enabling us to build a deep understanding of their needs along their individual health journeys,” said Saeju Jeong, Noom co-founder and CEO. “We’re always looking for new ways to make Noom a practical and productive solution, and releasing this book gives those who haven’t yet experienced Noom the ability to interact with our platform in ways we’ve never explored before. As a digital-first company, this is also an exciting and unexpected growth channel for us that we are thrilled to explore.”
“Whether we realize it or not, our holistic health is impacted by the habits we perform every single day,” said Noom’s Chief of Psychology, Andreas Michaelides, Ph.D. ”Without the necessary knowledge and tools in place, this can leave people struggling to make the overwhelmingly large number of health decisions they face on a daily basis.
“This book aims to equip people with the skills they need to shift their mindsets and help guide them through the ups and downs of any health journey in a world with ever-increasing barriers to achieving personal health goals. To that end, the book is the perfect companion to our digital programs, expanding upon the content that has already helped many of our users find success on their health journeys.”
“The Noom Mindset” is now available wherever books are sold. See more at noom.com/book.
