Do you know how much food you swallow every day? If it’s more than 80Bites then you are stretching you stomach and messing with your hormones, which leads to nonstop HUNGER.
So to find out, download our 80Bites app. Tap the “Bite” button each time you put food into your mouth (for soup, count mouthfuls or spoons; for smoothies, count sips). Step two: Discover (in just a couple days) if you are overeating.
With the help of snazzy graphics, Sam Stomach keeps you aware of how much you’re eating, how quickly you’re eating, and when you’re eating most. And FYI, Sam doesn’t enjoy being stretched, stuffed or otherwise abused.
The goal is 80 bites, or less, per day. It doesn’t matter if it’s a hot dog or a salad: a bite is a bite; a swallow is a swallow! We’re talking QUANTITY here, and once you master the art of eating less food, your stomach will be your best ally for shedding pounds.
Created by Registered Dietician Meredith Luce and Pilates Expert Joan Breibart, the 80Bites App goes hand in hand with the 80Bites Diet – a 12-week program developed to reverse the hunger cycle for good (www.80Bites.com). If you’re over 80 bites a day, the 80Bites Diet will help you downsize gradually. If your bite count is not excessive but you need to lose, we’ll show you how to build balanced meals and downsize liquid calories. Try 80Bites today and ditch dieting for good! Less is more; this is truly Pilates for the mouth. Shedding pounds happens automatically when your hunger is tamed.

Good idea -- super buggy app
To the designers: PLEASE fix this app, it is really, really, broken. It's not my phone, I've switched to an upgraded phone and it's working perfectly. I sync the phone regularly.
This works as a counter for a single meal -- but when you try to access the overall daily information, there's no big "tally number" to see how many bites you've had so far that day. I think it's supposed to be visible in "Bites History" but that page lumps in many days' meals and is useless as a daily counter.
I'd really like to rely on this and recommend it but I won't until an update is issued.
Excellent mindful eating tool
I love this app as a way of helping me slow down and pay attention to what I'm eating. It's useful even with the problem of stacking days and no way to simply enter in a new "eating event".
Easy to use but, as many others have said, please fix the stacking days issue!
I had some issues with it but I emailed the company and they responded quickly and helpfully! Other than that it does what it says- counts up your bites! My husband said I look thin today so maybe it's working. One things for sure- I went to bed pretty hungry so that must mean I was eating way to much before. I'm glad to have a better idea of how much I need to eat
