YouAte – the most effortless way to track why you ate, how you feel and activities you do. It’s visual, mindful and non-judgemental. It’s a tracker that people actually love to use!
“I just wanted to let you know that since I started using your app I have lost 30lbs. I have tried MANY different things to lose weight (counting calories, macros, different diets) but I have found that this is the only thing that has helped me. So I wanted to thank you very much!” - from Christina
“This app changed everything for me! I’ve lost 9 pounds so far, am absolutely not on a diet, do not feel deprived, and have never eaten better! Having to take a picture of everything I eat greatly encourages me to choose colorful, healthy options, pay more attention to portion sizes, and to think twice about whether I really want to eat something. It’s also very reinforcing to look back at my food choices and feel proud of them. I love this app!” - PH
"I LOVE this app! I was looking for something exactly like this because I can’t be bothered to enter calories or even (or even search for) food descriptions. All I needed was something to make me be aware of what I was eating, and to record whether it was on the path or not. You have made it so easy and it’s really helping me every day! Please never change it. It’s perfect!!" - Phil

Why do we need a journal?
Our days are jam packed, and we’re constantly running from one place to another. Do we actually remember what we snacked on earlier today? Do we remember how many handfuls we actually ate of those nuts? Do we ever pause to think about why we are eating? Was it hunger or emotions?
YouAte helps us realize what and why we actually ate, how we feel during the day and how active we truly are. It helps us spot habits and patterns so we can embrace the nourishing ones and replace the others.
How does it work?
YouAte helps you quickly capture your meal before you eat. With a few simple taps you can keep notes about your meal and learn about your hunger cues. You’ll soon realize how food affects your day-to-day activities and performance in and out of the office. YouAte helps track the time of your meal and the time between meals. If you are starving by lunchtime, you can see what you had earlier. Maybe you didn’t eat the right food to fuel you throughout the morning. YouAte helps you connect the dots to understand your mood and energy!
YouAte also helps you capture what you drink. Tracking water, coffee, alcohol, juice or soda consumptions has never been this easy. It puts everything on a visual timeline with your meals so you can better understand your habits. [Premium]
Don’t forget about physical activities you do! Not only it’s an important part of your overall health, it can also have a significant impact on your appetite. [Premium]
YouAte is your personal health journal. On it’s own it enhances your mindfulness and self-awareness. If you choose, it can be shared with your coach, nutritionist, or close friends for additional motivation.
Most of YouAte’s core features are free to use and will stay free. We do offer a premium membership that will unlock features such as Liquid and Activity tracking, the ability to invite friends, to share your profile via the web and to reuse your favorite photos when saving a meal. You can sign up for monthly, quarterly and yearly auto-renewing plans.
Processing of a subscription is handled by Apple. Your credit card will be charged through your iTunes account when you confirm your purchase. Subscription renews automatically at the same price, unless cancelled at least 24 hours before the end of the subscription term. You can manage subscriptions in Account Settings in iTunes after purchase. Refunds will not be provided for any unused portion of the subscription term.
Mindfulness graphs, 7-day progress, Mood tracking, faster scrolling on your timeline.
Finally! :) You know those questions we have been asking you to fill out when tapping on a meal. They were designed to help you be more mindful about your choices and to help you reflect on why you made those choices. That, by itself, has already helped thousands improve their daily eating habits. But something was missing. We never really helped you look at the big picture. To help you see how you did day by day. Well, that’s over. We have added Mindfulness graphs to show your progress over the past 7 days. More long term views will be added later.
-New Profile page-
We have also redesigned the profile page, to give you a better view of your goals and how you did in the past 7 days. You can also customize the profile page to only show you what you think is important to you. Tap on “See all” to see all graphs available to you and select the ones you would like to see all the time on your profile page. Hope you like it!
This is something that many of you were asking for. You can now track your mood throughout the day. Feeling happy or bored during the day? Quickly log it with just a few taps. It can be super helpful when you look back later trying to figure out why you made certain choices you made. (Requires premium account)
-Additional tracking options-
It looks like this was confusing to many. Adding past meals as Text-only or by Importing from the camera roll are still available for free. We just moved them under a new pop-up menu for easy access. You will find this menu by tapping “Options” next to the camera button. Here you can also customize which option is available on the other side of the camera button. If you are a Premium subscriber, you can put any of the tracking options on the front screen for easy access.
We made some speed improvements to the timeline, so when you scroll up on your timeline in the main view (by swiping down), past meals and days will now load faster. Give it a try!
If you feel that YouAte is having a positive impact on your life, please give us a quick 5-star rating in the app store and maybe share some of your story, if you have time. It would mean a lot to us. Thanks!
For feedback or concerns, contact us directly so we can help you right away.
Enjoy your path!

More details about some recent changes:
- Note entry -
You can now save your thoughts and feelings with the new “Note” type entry. This is the first of several new entry types we will be introducing in the upcoming weeks. (Requires a premium membership.)
- Added Yoga as a new activity type -
We added Yoga as one of the activity choices. We also renamed “Exercise” >> “Activity” because we think it better represents the wide range of physical movements you can do to become a healthier you.
- Custom Liquid volumes -
You can now add custom volumes. Just scroll to the bottom of the volume selector. Easily reuse them using the Quick Add function.
- 24-hour clock and support for Milliliters (ml) -
The app now matches your phone’s settings. So if you are using 24-hour time format and the metric system, the app will display things properly.
- Apple Health sync for Water and Activities -
You can now elect to sync your water intake and activity data with Apple Health. So if you are using an external tracker (like your Apple Watch) that syncs with Apple Health, all that data will now show up on your YouAte path. Of course, we also sync in the other direction, so if you quickly need to log water or an activity, like yoga, it will be pushed to Apple Health.
Thanks for your support!
We would also like to thank all our Premium members for their support. Without them (you), we would not be able to continue improving YouAte to make it the most effective and fun journaling tool in the market. So THANK YOU!

Become aware of what I’m eating and without guilt point myself in a new direction.
Super easy and helpful!
Simple and effective
This is a great app! It’s easy to use and more effective than a simple written food journal. Also, the use of a photo is much less time consuming.
