Ratings and Reviews
Love this app. But wish you got more for the Coach
I hardly ever leave a review but I love this app so much that I had to write about it. It’s very easy to follow and I love the different fasting options available. Especially with the Coach. My only recommendation would be that the weekly challenges provided alerts to remind you of what you’re suppose to be doing. For instance, if you’re suppose to “give you pet love”, it would be great to have a notification reminding me. Or to drink my water, do my squats, use the stairs, etc. I’ve emailed the app maker and they said that soon the app will be available for Apple Watch, which is great! The one other suggestion would be if I move my hours one day that it moves it for the following days as well in order to keep me in track for the rest of the week. Right now I have to adjust every day. I lost 7 lbs in two weeks and my stomach feels so much better (chronic stomach issues). Highly recommended!
“Coach” is useless - except if you have (almost) unlimited flexibility
I was surprised and disappointed that the “coach” doesn’t take into account any user preferences. It doesn’t even ask at the beginning of the week which meals are set in stone and the optimizes around that. So, if you’re like me and have family or work dinners that you just can’t move, bad luck. I try to shift the fasting windows to accommodate my schedule but most of the time it’s not even feasible because the “coach” suggests a 36 hour fast which collided with two work dinners... so the only solution they offer is to cancel the whole day and use the joker day?! That’s a joke, pun intended. So, I have to make my own schedule outside of the app which really defeats the whole purpose of the app.
The app claims that the coaching version is more effective because it prevents the body from getting used to a fasting schedule which would make that fasting schedule ineffective. To the developer team: please post some proper scientific evidence for that strong claim. I wasn’t able to find anything that comes even close.
Recommendation: don’t buy the coaching option. There’s no useful added feature. The free version is ok and, well, its free. 3 stars for that.
Developer Response ,
Hi, thanks for your feedback.
We really appreciate feedback from our users and bring all those suggestions to our development meetings.
I'm sure that we can integrate many of those into future versions of the app.
We work hard to make BodyFast better and better every day.
In the beginning of a Coach subscription it might happen that the Coach suggests fasting plans, that don't fit your everyday life. This is because the algorithm does not have much information about you and your fasting habits, yet (available information increases with every fasting week).
+ If you don't like the current coach week you can rate it accordingly (too easy / too hard) after finishing or aborting it and the coach will give you a more fitting week in the next plan.
+ You can also move the fasting periods by pressing the button to change your week layout to fit better into your daily schedule. Of course you can also fast longer if you feel ready for it. But always make sure you rate the week correctly.
+ You can also always choose from the 50 different fasting plans manually if you want to try a different fasting week plan. The Coach will also calculate the fitting weekly challenges for manually selected weeks.
In the current version of our app it is not possible to adjust the lenght of fasting periods. Fasting periods can only be shifted. However, we are working on an update that will allow our users to freely adjust their fasting periods.
Doing something new is much easier when you set a realistic series of goals and persistent, positive reminders - which can get dull. And dull can likely lead to giving up - but less likely when progress is rewarded with another challenge to keep you engaged in solidifying new behavior. Before long you’ve reached your goal which not only reason to celebrate but - in the best possible way - beside the point. Because you haven’t merely achieved something obvious to others on the outside, you’ve gone and changed yourself on the inside. Keep going and you may just experience that grown-up brand of happiness known as inner peace.

Wow, thank you for sharing your impressive thoughts with us! You definitely accepted the BodyFast invitation to enter a deeper level and learn to know more about yourself, your habits and behavior. Intermittent fasting is not a diet, it is more than that. It is a lifestyle. We can only encourage you to go on the way you started, all the best for you!
