Companion to all of the Am I Hungry? Programs and the Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat book series.
About the Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Virtual Coach App
The Am I Hungry?® Virtual Coach app was designed to help you end futile restrictive dieting and resolve mindless and emotional eating. Designed and developed by Am I Hungry? founder Michelle May, M.D., this app guides you through the Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Cycle. It is a powerful tool for putting you in charge of your eating decision without having to resort to rules and restrictions.
Whenever you feel like eating, simply click “I want to eat” and the app will guide you through the mindful eating process step by step.
“Built-in tools, such as a 10- point hunger-fullness rating scale and lists of strategies to help if you are reaching for food without feeling physically hungry, help you along the way. With practice, this way of tapping into and heeding your internal cues becomes more second nature, and this app, which costs $2.99, can help get you there. Good for those seeking to move away from emotional and impulsive eating toward more mindful, self-nurturing food choices.” —Ellie Krieger, Washington Post
(This app works well with all of the Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Programs and Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat book series to help those who are struggling with yo-yo dieting, emotional eating, binge eating, diabetes, or have had bariatric surgery.)
Read what other users have said about our Mindful Eating Virtual Coach App:
So Worth It! Like my own personal food therapist! – At its most basic level, this app walks you through how to have a healthy relationship with food by listening to your body. The app goes above and beyond by helping you find the exact root of why your relationship with food is what it is, and the app poses questions every step of the way so that you can train yourself to truly eat mindfully. I thought I knew what eating mindfully meant before I bought this app but after using it for a few days, I realize it goes much deeper and WOW already see and feel so much of an improvement! Definitely going to keep this app on my phone forever. So grateful for this tool.
I am a Nutritionist and this is a great tool! – Thank you for developing this app! It is such a useful tool in my nutrition practice. I have always used the hunger scale but it was on a piece of paper now in the age of technology my clients, especially the younger ones, can truly relate to this thank you it is wonderful and helpful for an individual and for professionals!
Amazing way to tune into your true hunger cues – A complete and thorough app that provides us with thought provoking questions to help decide if we are truly hungry and, if so, what we truly want to eat for optimal nourishment. It also provides us with options if we realize we are not truly hungry. I would suggest this app for everyone!
I bought it right away – Dear Dr. May, What can I say to thank you for this application of the principles in your book? I cried when I went through the mindful eating process the first time. The depth of emotion it created in me completely overwhelmed me. I purchased your book years ago at the instigation of my family physician. And, although I understood and wanted to implement the principles in my life, I have struggled with it. I have great hope that this app will motivate me in examining my eating habits and help me heal from the stranglehold emotional eating has had on my life ‘lo these many years.
Guides you through the process of mindful eating – This app will help you eat more mindfully by taking you through the decision to eat or not based on hunger. It is a wonderful addition to Michelle May’s book Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat and makes the whole process easier.
Fantastic!!! – I am completely blown away by this App. It’s like a choose your own adventure for mindful eating! I’m a dietitian and for those who are ready to start practicing mindful eating, this is worth the investment!
I love this app! – As an Am I Hungry Facilitator, I love being able to share another tool to help my clients stay in touch with mindful eating. Having this app really helps keep it at our fingertips. Thank you Dr. May!
