You’re 80Bites away from your ideal weight!
So you’ve tried every diet and you are still frustrated!! Can you honestly say you know HOW MUCH food you ate yesterday? If not, you are missing the most important piece of your puzzle for weight loss. Get ahead of the curve (quite literally). Nutrient manipulations and diets are over. Our STOMACH should be the only real focus. Internal stomach balloons, stomach sensors and a necklace that measures what you swallow are coming soon. But right now you can spend a day—better yet three days—to just find out how much you actually eat.
Why the number 80 you ask? Ever wonder what all those hard-to-track, pesky serving sizes amount to? A day’s allotment roughly ends up being about 80Bites. Don’t worry about bite sizes or overthink everything simply count your bites in the beginning and soon you’ll be able to eyeball anything and figure out the bites plus your smaller stomach will stop you anyway.
You cannot eat less if you don’t even know how much you are eating now, and this is where the 80Bites app comes in: our diagnostic tool measures the quantity you are now swallowing. You’d be surprised the number rarely fluctuates very much—unless you are at Hometown Buffet.
• Step one: Tap the “Bite” button each time you put food in your mouth (for soup, count mouthfuls or spoons; for smoothies, count sips).
•Step two: Discover in just a couple days your numbers.
•Step three: Evaluate. Where are your bites coming from? If you’re not overeating, you be may be drinking your weight in liquids.
Obviously, we trust you can count to 80 each day on your own, but our app remembers what you record every meal and tracks your progress. You’ll meet your new eating ally, Sam Stomach as he talks you through the process and makes you really aware.

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. 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. Shedding pounds happens automatically when your hunger is tamed.

What's New in Version 2.0.4
* Updated app with our new domain name 80bites.com
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.
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
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!
