Hi neverlight.
If you can think of specific easy feature ideas I'm definitely interested in hearing them.

As for calorie counting -- my experience is that there are lots of very good full featured diet apps that do that kind of thing so I am hesitant to compete with them.
However I do have a very quick calculator type control I could add if we wanted some very basic manual calorie counting..


One thing that just sprang to mind while reading your last post is a "Eating Timer".  Personally, I'm attending a weight management clinic and my dietitian has told me a number of times that one of the key things overweight people need to focus on is "resetting" their eating habits, which included retraining themselves to eat / chew / masticate at a slower rate, which can sometimes be a hard thing to remember to do.

With this in mind, I' wondering if you could possibly add some sort of timer feature that would help in this area..say a count down, similar to a stop watch, that shows you when it's time to stop chewing and swallow.  I'm oversimplifying things here, but I'm guessing you get what I mean.

Anyway, it's just a thought and I know I would personally find it useful.

Hey Mousie,

Sorry if it wasn't clear. My bad. I find it unhealthy to not eat anything & was actually hoping for multiple methods (these are mentioned in provided articles). I'm not sure if there's anything similar on Play store though.

Quote
The 16/8 Method: Also called the Leangains protocol, it involves skipping breakfast and restricting your daily eating period to 8 hours, for example from 1 pm to 9 pm. Then you “fast” for 16 hours in between.

Eat-Stop-Eat: This involves fasting for 24 hours, once or twice a week, for example by not eating from dinner one day until dinner the next day.

The 5:2 Diet: On two non-consecutive days of the week, only eat 500-600 calories. Eat normally the other 5 days.


And yes, a very simple counter as you mentioned. (see 5:2 eating pattern)


Hopefully, I did not misunderstand app usage.
