I'm sorry but I don't think this has been properly thought through. 1) a lot of the green foods shown are ones I don't actually like or eat (ever). If you enabled the user to pick a selection of healthy foods that you do like, then show those images, maybe that'd be better. 2) because you're showing non food items, I find I'm not taking any notice of the pictures themselves - to the point that my eyes tend to loose focus and just spot the colour of the outer ring, not what is inside 3) there's no challenge to the game so its boring 4) I made up my weight because I don't ever weigh myself. I go on clothes size and size I look. Overall, it has made absolutely no difference to my eating habits either. The principle may be good one, but definitely needs more thought.
I'm finding this app helps me gradually overcome my mindless eating. I've found myself actually passing up the dreaded snacks left in our work break room to include the always tempting birthday cake. I've walked passed such sinful devils 2-3 times since I started this program. Behavior changing, Placebo, and subliminal or all three? I can't say, but I'm on board and seeing success and using the app daily.
It worked very well for my husband who stopped eating chocolate within 4 days! This app encourages eating fruit and veg. Any chance you could make an app to encourage exercise??
I found myself buying and eating more fruits and veggies and not eating chocolate without any conscious effort. I would suggest adding pictures of cooking and food preparation as I think it would help me cook more often.
I had a few tiny issues setting this up and used the email address to try to get help with it. I got an automated response that was not helpful for my situation. Is there a better way to contact someone for assistance?
I think this application has A LOT of potential. I have been feeling the need to increase my water intake since I started using this a few days ago and resisting certain things has become a tiny bit easier. I already eat really healthy, the challenge will be if this application can at the very least reduce my cravings for certain foods to a more tolerable level. Also, I agree with others on this one ... It would be wonderful if you could allow for more specific choices as opposed to ,or in addition to, groupings of items. I like that you add books and art supplies to the green circles. :-) Success with your studies.
