NEW YORK, Jan. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Noom, Inc. today announced that Noom Coach will now offer users thousands of new healthy recipes from Rodale Inc, the world's leading healthy lifestyle media company.
With the addition of more than 1100 healthy recipes that have appeared on the pages of magazines such as Women's Health, Men's Health, Prevention and in other Rodale Inc. publications, Noom Coach users will be able to discover and search a host of delicious new meals right in the app.
"It's incredibly hard work to build new, healthier habits," said Artem Petakov, co-founder of Noom. "We want to give our users the best possible tools to support their journey and make it easier. The Rodale library of healthy recipes puts tempting ideas that are both delicious and support their journey right at their fingertips."
The Noom Coach App is a weight-loss program designed to help you change your eating and exercise habits to live a healthier life. The Coach raises your awareness of what you're putting in your body by allowing you to easily track every meal with one-swipe, intelligent food logging. Recipes from Rodale have been added to the app with the same convenient one-swipe food logging that makes it fast and easy to track your meals in Noom Coach.
Taking the focus off calories, Noom uses a red, yellow, green system to educate users along the way about which foods are the healthiest choices. You will be able to search the recipes by keywords or meal, see each food's color coding to know what ratio of red, yellow and green foods it contains, save your favorite recipes to a separate list, and see if the recipe fits in your daily calorie budget.
The recipes, available to Noom Coach Pro Members only, will be available on the English version of the app for both Android and iOS.
