Each week we review a food related app. This week it’s Eat Slower – find out what the Lempert Report thought.
What it says it does: Eating your meals too quickly is not good for your health, and is a difficult habit to break. Eat Slower can help! Eat Slower provides an adjustable timer which you can use to pace yourself while you eat. Each time the timer elapses, you are allowed to take a bite of your meal. By pacing yourself while eating, you are encouraged to chew your food more thoroughly, enjoy your food longer, and give your body more time to signal you that you are full, helping to prevent overeating.
Use it for every meal!
What it actually does: Eat Slower is a great way to truly savor your food and know when you are actually full. Set the timer and let it time you while you eat. Choose from several different sounds to alert you to take your next bite, or turn the sounds off and just use the vibrate feature (helpful for keeping your device concealed while eating with family and friends).
How useful is the information for target audience?: The app is excellent for those who truly want to slow down and enjoy their food, improve digestion and even possibly loose weight.
Ease of use: Eat Slower is simple and easy to access, which makes usage a breeze.
Who would best benefit from the app?: This app is for everyone, we live in a fast paced culture and we rarely stop to chew let alone sit down to eat and enjoy the meal. Eating mindfully will change your life!
