Awesome app - by Nada gaza - Aug 5, 2013
"This App is amazing to manage cravings or any binge eat disorder.. It helps me be aware of what and why I eat and which will help me alot in achieving my goals.. I really recommend it to everyone"
Based on the popular Track & Share platform, this app helps you cultivate mindfulness. Developed by a mindful eater who uses it every day to bring more awareness and joy to eating. This is not a diet plan and not a calorie counter, but it might work better for your health and happiness. Try it out, it might be just right for you.
What is mindfulness?
Mindful Delight works with two modes of mind: awareness and doing-thinking. It is desirable that one can easily move between these modes of mind.
Stuck in doing-thinking mode?
This app helps by building awareness of different types of hunger. It also supports doing-thinking, e.g., you can track time set aside for eating, time exercised, and if you need to, track weight.
Basic concepts employed by the Mindful Delight app
Arising food ideas are real and fading
Acknowledge an arising food thought by making a note. Decide to let it fade away or to act on it.
There are many types of hunger
Cultivate awareness of eye, nose, mouth, mind, heart, social, stomach hunger, thirst, listen to the needs of your body.
Hint: friends, not potato chips feed social hunger.
Enjoy, satisfy, express yourself
Consume the right food for each hunger. Become aware of how much you enjoy each food. Capture your level of satisfaction. Express gratitude.
Will I lose weight with this app?
You may, or not. The intention is to cultivate awareness and right action. If you need to track weight, look in the app's number category.
Does it work?
Graph your journey. You might find that taking care of your different hungers, making time for eating comes with more joy, satisfaction, gratefulness, and healthier weight. Did it work?
The visual calendar
Lets you explore trends and patterns one item at a time. To compare items use the multi-graph.
Want to add your own items?
The app comes with 20 customizable items. If you need to add your own items, then please buy the Add Items feature.
What's New in Version 7.1.3
bug fix for iOS10
While there are some areas where this app can improve, I still find it very useful in keeping track of and identifying relationships between various elements that affect my day-to-day life. I love how easy it is to add things and the various ways they can be tracked, e.g., pain can be moderate to severe to not at all, you can count cups of coffee using a single tap; you can set something up to be measured in percentages, length of time, number of pounds, and more. There are areas that I don't use. I have yet to see how the calendar feature is of any help. It would be far better if I had more control of where items appear, so I could, for example, more easily compare how much sleep I had to how much patience I had the next day. And I wish that you could view the graphs horizontally so you could compare more elements together over a longer period, but it does not rotate. And even though it automatically appeared on my iPad when I downloaded it onto my phone, the entries I make on my phone don't appear on my iPad, and the annoying verticality is also there. Having it work across devices like my calendar does would be a great feature. That said, I use it very day and it has helped me stay on track on diet and exercise and to become more aware of how other experiences (like how much my neighbor's dog was barking or how much I socialized) affect my success.
Total waste of time and money
Very confusing! I completed the tutorial several times and still can't locate the icons and buttons mentioned. Worst of all, there is no contact for support within the app.
Don't see what people are complaining about. The app does exactly what I needed to do. I give it 5 stars.
