    Here are all the tools you have in your arsenal:

    • Our helpful assistant Avo can make meal recommendations, give you recipe tips, and help you stay on track with your healthy eating.
    • Our fasting tracker will guide you daily, provide helpful tips on when to eat and when to fast, and let you know when your body is in “fat-burning mode.” It adapts to your lifestyle and can adjust your fasting times based on your behavior.
    • Our smart food tracker lets you record what you’ve eaten in a natural, human way — by just telling it what you ate instead of scrolling through long lists of foods.
    • Our Nutrition Scores use data from your food tracking to give you a personalized nutritional assessment and suggestions for what to do next.
    • Our hydration tracker helps you stay hydrated so you’ll stay energized and alert while fasting. You can track your daily water consumption, and we’ll prompt you when you’re off-target for the day. Plus, you can record other beverages, like coffee, tea, and fruit juice.
    • Our progress tracker lets you celebrate every small success and change. Logging your current weight 1–2 times per week will keep you motivated and focused.
    • Our activity tracker will help you monitor your workout type, intensity, and duration. You can even track your steps using Fitbit or Apple Health and follow all of your health progress in your profile.

    Nicole’s intermittent fasting journey 

    “I downloaded the app about 3 months ago, but I didn’t start fasting regularly and strictly until a month ago, and since then, I’ve been feeling great! 

    I’ve lost 3 kg (6.6. lb) so far, and I haven’t really been on a diet. I just eat whatever I want and as healthy as I can during my eating window. 

    Meanwhile, I just want to say how great the app is. I’ve learned a lot, and for the first time, I’m enjoying the process. 

    I’m so grateful for how it has changed my habits and transformed my life into a self-love journey.”

    Ricky’s intermittent fasting journey 

    “I just want to tell you thanks for the lifestyle change that you have introduced me to. I was at my second heaviest in December 2019, so I started calorie counting, and it was terrible. I lost weight but had lost all my energy. 

    I started SIMPLE at the end of December 2019 at 225 lb with the 16:8 format and soon realized that 18:6 was very doable. 

    I have more energy every day and have only missed 4 days of some type of exercise. Started at 225 pounds and now at 197, thanks to all the great advice.”

    After a frightening heart attack in March 2019, we’re so glad Ricky took the first steps in leading a healthier life. Follow his 16:8 intermittent fasting testimonials on Instagram.

    Jessica’s intermittent fasting journey 

    “When I started intermittent fasting last fall, I had been trying to get off some medications — trying to keep up with what to eat and how often to exercise started discouraging me. I began to wonder if I could ever lose the weight and stop taking medications I didn’t want to take. 

    Then, I discovered intermittent fasting. I started seeing losses and haven’t looked back since. I started out on a 14:10 protocol and now do 17:7.”

    Elizabeth’s intermittent fasting journey 

    “My goal was 125; now I’m at 129. I started at 149. So I’ve lost 20 pounds.

    I heard about intermittent fasting but never thought of trying it until I saw myself in a picture and realized I needed to do something. I read about it and came across the app. If it weren’t for the app, I would have given up! 

    For those just starting, I would say drink lots of water, use the app, and it gets better! After the first week, I wasn’t getting hungry at all. Now I’m just used to eating from 4 PM–8 PM. The app is what helped me!”

    Craig’s intermittent fasting journey 

    “Last year at this time, I weighed 538 pounds and was diagnosed with advanced congestive heart failure. I couldn’t walk, and I couldn’t breathe. 

    My life was passing me by, and I was losing my friends. I was losing touch with the world around me, staying in my house every day, too ashamed to let anybody see me, and too hurt to do anything about it.

    Then, one day, by accident, I heard about fasting. I tried it out. I lost 25 pounds, but more than that, I felt reinvigorated and better than I had felt in years.

    So, I just kept doing it every week. A year later, I’m down 200 pounds, and I’m taking my life back; I’m going out to see the world

    I don’t know how much longer I have on this planet, but I’m going to take full advantage of the time fasting has given me. 

    If you feel the way I felt, don’t give up. There is hope. Fasting can save your life.”

    Katie’s intermittent fasting journey 

    “I’ve always basically been a natural intermittent faster; breakfast was never really my thing. However, I never really tracked my meals consistently or paid attention to my daily eating habits. I just didn’t eat breakfast, and that was that.

    When I discovered SIMPLE, I immediately fell in love with the concept of keeping track of my fasting and meals because not only is the app aesthetically pleasing, but it is great at showing you what is actually happening to your body while you’re eating and when you’re not!

    I’ve become so much more aware of my daily habits and my relationship with food and mindful about what I choose to eat. Not to mention, I’ve REALLY improved on my nighttime binge snacking.

    Intermittent fasting feels good on the inside and will eventually show that on the outside. I’m not to my overall goal YET, but because of intermittent fasting and the use of the SIMPLE app, I am getting closer and closer every single day!”

    Alyona’s intermittent fasting journey 

    “I didn’t fast for weight loss, but rather for better focus and mental clarity. But I can’t say I don’t like the look of more defined abs on my body. Great mood is another noticeable bonus!”

    John’s intermittent fasting journey 

    “For the last 3 years, I have been eating only 1–2 meals a day, depending on my weight loss goals. I still can’t believe my eyes when I look at the ‘before’ picture from 10 years ago. I absolutely had to eat 3 big meals a day then.”
