Medication Companion


The Medication Companion is designed to help those who are taking GLP-1 medication get guidance on how to set themselves up for success, overcome common challenges surrounding GLP-1s, receive guidance on protein, and includes an updated food color system. This optional and free program is offered during the Noom Weight signup process to those who specify that they’re taking GLP-1 medications and in-app after signup.

Key Features of the Medication Companion

After activating the Medication Companion, you’ll have access to:

  • Protein Power features in-app that include a protein bar on the home screen, macros data at the end of each meal log, and an updated food color system. 
  • Muscle Defense library of selected fitness videos from FitOn, focusing on preventing muscle loss.

You’ll also have access to content in the curriculum and in the module library that’s tailored to help set you up for success on your journey. This includes:

  • A module on the importance of core behavioral change tenets, including nutrition, staying active, and healthy habits.
  • A module on common challenges while on these medications.
  • A module introducing weight loss medications and what to expect while taking them. 

How to Add the Medication Companion During Signup

When signing up for the Noom Weight program, you’ll be asked if you’re currently taking a GLP-1 medication to help you with weight loss. Provided that you respond Yes to this question, you’ll proceed to the next screen that asks you to confirm that you’d like to add the Medication Companion to your program. Just select Yes, add it to my plan and it will automatically be added to your Noom Weight program at no additional cost.
