How often should I be weighing in?

Regular weigh-ins are a key part of the Noom program and a proven and effective tool for weight loss.

The effectiveness of weigh-ins isn’t just about the number on the scale — it’s about subtle changes in psychology. Eating more usually doesn’t have a short-term consequence, but when you know that you’ll see it on the scale in a few days, you’re much more likely to stick to your diet. It’s like having a small voice inside your head reminding you of the goal you’re working towards.

To make your weigh-ins most effective and to minimize variability, weigh yourself in the morning 15-30 minutes after waking up and before eating or drinking.

We recommend weighing in daily. That way, stepping on the scale will become less intimidating and will become part of your daily routine. Please keep in mind that your weight can fluctuate from one day to the next, so keep an eye on the trends and the bigger picture and don’t focus too much on day-to-day fluctuations.
