My Diet Coach is a diet app availble on both Andriod and iOS. It aims to build healthier eating and fitness habits using a system of goals and challenges to enable weight loss. Unlike most diet apps that are more focused on tracking your diet, this app gives you the motivation you need to conquer the mental blocks of whatever is keeping you from losing weight.
You are provided with tips for specific areas that you may need an extra push in the right direction. Whether it is food cravings, eating out, exercise laziness, diet slip ups, etc, whatever your weak area is in dieting, this app can motivate you to get through it. Users set their weight loss goals and the app gives them regular challenges, encourages healthy eating goals, such as filling up with water, or making sure you fill your plate with vegetables. Users can track their meals with a diet diary and calorie calculator. In-app purchases unlock extra features. One can also upload pictures of one’s self to track thier progress without tracking food intake. By customizing thier reminders, one can hopefully fix thier “trouble areas” or triggers in dieting. While this is a great concept, considering that dieting is usually more mentally challenging than anything else, to be successful using this app, you must first be aware of what your triggers are and know when to have the app send notifications.
