  • Yes, Noom works with a gluten-free diet to make weight loss achievable while managing health issues related to gluten consumption.
  • The Noom Weight food logger helps you find gluten-free food options that are high in nutrients and identify foods with gluten that you should avoid.
  • Noom coaches and daily lessons offer strategies and support to stick with your gluten-free diet, understand your body’s needs, and overcome any challenges.

Making any sort of dietary change is tough. But when you’re dealing with medical conditions like celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, wheat allergy, and gluten ataxia, the move to a gluten-free diet is necessary.

And it’s not another fad diet; it’s a lifestyle to help you feel your best.

You may have digestive issues, pain, fatigue, and other common symptoms of gluten sensitivity—which can be hard to deal with if you’re trying to lose weight. And cutting out gluten alone does not guarantee weight loss.

That’s where Noom Weight comes in.

We’re here to help you develop the habits you need to stick with your gluten-free diet and still lose weight.

Note: Please consult with your medical provider before making dietary changes.

Use the color-coded food logger to find gluten-free, nutrient-dense options

The food you eat is important when you’re following a gluten-free diet.

It’s hard to avoid gluten as it’s naturally found in common ingredients—like wheat, barley, rye, and sometimes oats. That makes non-gluten-free versions of things like bread, soups, beer, and pasta off-limits if you want to prevent any sort of reaction.

If you’re wondering, “Does Noom have gluten-free options?” The answer is yes.

The Noom Weight color-coded food logger actually helps you identify and steer clear of foods with gluten and find nutrient-dense, gluten-free alternatives you can eat. It works like this:

  • Many green foods are gluten-free, so you have lots of options. This category is made up of mainly fruits and vegetables that don’t have gluten but are packed with nutrients.
  • There’s a variety of yellow foods—like lean, unprocessed meats and seafood—that don’t have gluten. They have a bit more calories and a medium level of nutrients.
  • Orange foods have the most calories and least nutrients but are OK to eat in moderation. This one is important to track because a good deal of gluten food alternatives might fall under this category, like gluten-free bread, cookies, and crackers.

The more you log your food, the easier it is to keep a close eye on what you’re eating. That way, you know your body is getting enough nutrients from gluten-free sources.

Coaches offer tips for avoiding processed foods and eating mindfully

With a gluten-free diet, you always have to watch what you’re putting in your body. But achieving true mindfulness around eating is easier said than done. Any setback can feel defeating.

You need someone who will encourage you to keep pushing toward the lifestyle you need to feel healthy. And with Noom Weight, you’ll have that someone—your personal coach—to support you.

Talk to your Noom Weight coach about the health challenges you’re having with gluten and the difficulties you’re facing in going gluten-free.

You might feel tired as a result of eating gluten but don’t know how to begin cutting it out of your diet. Or you may struggle with finding gluten-free foods that aren’t processed. Your coach will walk you through any obstacle you face.

Also, share your goals—whether that’s eliminating stomach pain after meals or feeling more energized during the day. From there, your Noom Weight coach will offer one-on-one guidance and individualized action steps to fit your gluten-free lifestyle.

You’ll have someone cheering you on with every step toward achieving your wellness goals and empowering you to reach the finish line.

Read daily lessons to gain a better understanding of your body’s needs

The change to mindful eating on a gluten-free diet starts with understanding your body—both physically and mentally.

You need to know how to determine if you’re actually hungry or bloated. And it’s important to have strategies to pick the best options when you’re at a restaurant or social event where food options are limited.

Noom Weight offers daily lessons for you to read through each day. It only takes about 5–15 minutes to get new perspectives and knowledge to support your wellness goals. You’ll learn about topics like:

  • Psych tricks for dealing with stress and emotional eating
  • Setting SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-based) goals
  • How to deal with of social triggers
  • Overcoming thought distortions
  • The four eating habits

There’s also a daily lesson specifically on the gluten-free diet. 

It details what a gluten-free diet is, the possible reasons and benefits of going gluten-free, foods to avoid, and ideas for meals and snacks.

The lessons transform the way you think about food and eating, so you can reshape your behaviors to fit your lifestyle. You’ll know what you need to change to thrive with a gluten-free diet.
