“My Meal Mate” (MMM) is an app for weight management which has been designed by nutrition scientists at the University of Leeds, UK. This is the first free weight loss app which has been developed by academics using scientific evidence and has actually been piloted in a weight loss clinical trial. MMM will help you to set a realistic goal for weight loss based on your needs and contains a diary for you to keep track of your eating and activity.

For any enquiries, please contact: myfood24@leeds.ac.uk

Why use this over other apps?

• Unlike other apps, we actually have evidence that it can help people to lose weight. In our pilot trial, average weight loss in those using the app was 4.6kg (10 pounds) by 6 months.

• The huge food and drink database is specific to the United Kingdom so includes brands that British people will recognise.

• It’s free – we know how difficult weight loss can be and we really just want to help. We have no need to make money from selling the app or selling advertising.

• Help videos are available on ‘you-tube’ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AC_Mgia90cs

What did our trial participants say about MMM?

“I lost HUGE lumps of fat! And 3 dress sizes!”

“I found the app amazing and did really well with it”

Customer Reviews

Good app but in need of some improvements

gazzy b

I had this app recommended to me by a friend due to me looking to lose weight and so far I've found it very useful but the app can also hard to get round and find what you are actually having, for improvement you should be able to add your food to the database so that everyone can use these bits including the brands etc, for example I have a bowl of Kellogg's cornflakes which can't be found so I should be able to add this to the database with the number of calories that a 30g bowl (average size bowl) would be

Good principle, app needs improvement


Finding the food you want to add is hit and miss, and tracks calories only. For my 16% loss goal at 2lb per week it suggested I eat 782 calories a day - that can't be healthy at all for anyone, even if it's a net figure! If you eat too few calories your body goes into starvation mode and retains fat! To lose weight you need a healthy *balanced* diet so you get sufficient nutrients. This app doesn't address that issue. Calories come from carbs, protein and fat. Total calories from fat per day should be in region of 25-35%. This app gives no way to monitor this. Surprised the NHS are endorsing this.
