Enjoy food journaling again with Ate! Just 3 taps to save a meal. Pause for a second to reflect on what, where, when, and why you ate. Make lasting changes this year!

Ate Food Journal helps you build a sustainable and healthy lifestyle. It slows down the eating process and lets you reflect on what works for you. Helping you create new long-term habits that promote your health. 

Why we built Ate
With all the distractions and stress in our lives, it's easy to eat mindlessly. Often it’s hard to remember what and why we ate. 
Mindless eating has an impact on health — physical, mental, and emotional. 

Diets and other quick fixes don’t work in the long run. Sometimes they even cause more stress and frustration.

Ate was built with this in mind. It’s a nonjudgmental mindful diary that is thoughtfully designed to help increase self-awareness of eating habits, behaviors, and feelings. Ate is an easy to use food journal built around positive reinforcement. It fits easily into life and is a joy to use. Ate reveals existing healthy behaviors and shows how to turn them into healthy habits. Ate also provides guidance on how to turn unhealthy habits into healthy ones. 
Ate worked with health professionals around the world and built this app on journaling techniques that have been proven over decades.

Great app

Such a great alternative to calorie counting! I've been using it for a few weeks now and seen a natural reduction in portion sizes and zero guilt in eating unhealthy food as the amounts I eat are so much smaller than in the past. I'm losing weight without feeling deprived and feel in control. I've found in the past that calories counting is too restrictive and led to bingeing whereas with this app I've actually been able to stop a binge in its tracks. Looking at the images I've taken allows me to stop destructive binge-related thinking before it takes hold and I can continue with my day having eaten delicious food without beating myself up. The developers also email you a helpful newsletter every week (if you subscribe to it) with interesting articles and motivation that I really like.
I recommend this app to anyone who wants a simple tool to support a balanced approach to eating that they can maintain for the rest of their lives. Great app and keep it up!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your kind words. Our goal was to provide a tool that fits into your life and allows you to maintain healthy habits in the long run. So we are happy to hear that you feel the same way about it. (Of course, we are not finished yet, more updates coming soon!) Also happy to hear that it has been helping you with portion sizes and eating better. Let us know if you have any more feedback and enjoy your path! (And tell more Australians about us. We need more of you on YouAte! :) )

Fantastic app for mindful eating

I love this app. It was exactly what I was looking for. As a person that struggles with my eating habits and patterns I recently decided to ditch the macros/calorie counting and focus on making better choices and being more mindful...while still keeping a food diary. This app was perfect as I didn’t want to be constantly writing things down. It also makes me stop and assess “why” I ate and “where” I’m eating, which has been incredibly helpful for me in assessing my patterns. I also love that it keeps track of how long between meals as this helps me to workout why I might have overeaten or when I’ll need to eat depending on when I want to exercise!
Another bonus is that you can add people to support you and/or your trainer so they can see what you are eating.
Fantastic app!

Great app! :)

I’ve been using this beautifully designed and user friendly app for about a week or more now to monitor how many meals I need per day to maintain optimum energy levels whilst not overeating. I am also using to to record meals soas to save time and easily put together meal plans based on what has worked well previously.
The third use that I have put it too is to monitor meals based on a health condition that requires a certain amount of certain foods per day. This app provides a great way to do that.
As a suggestion, it would be great to be able to pull out the headings from any given day or meal and create meal plans on the app ready to use for the next shop!

Otherwise 5 stars and love it. :)
