NEW YORK, Aug. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- 80Bites, the digital weight loss tool, announces an updated app and plan. The revolutionary approach to food challenges traditional dieting, conventional nutrition and the supersizing of America. The program cuts through conventional fitness and nutrition advice, much of which contradicts what the body requires. 80Bites is based on the fact that taking fewer bites causes the stomach container to shrink and return to normal size. Consequently, the body craves less food, eats less, and absorbs fewer calories. For 99% of the population, 80 bites is the target number.
America's overeating and misunderstanding of what our stomachs need has caused our stomachs to stretch beyond capacity. Large stomachs escalate hunger, which leads to overconsumption and obesity. 80Bites boldly proclaims that eating unlimited amounts of fruits and vegetables stretches the stomach causing it to need more food to be satisfied. Drinking large quantities of water will have the same affect. Its principles challenge popular dieting plans that advocate unlimited servings of fruits and vegetables, and drinking eight glasses of water a day to stave hunger.
The 80Bites smart phone app is a handheld pedometer for your mouth that makes it easy to track how much and how often users eat. Within one week, stats will be clear. Sam the Stomach is the animated star of 80Bites adding humor and encouragement to the experience. After the app, comes the 80Bites Plan, which offers four eating approaches over 12 weeks. Quantity, Frequency, Quality and Balance are introduced in three weeks segments, providing users the 21 days it takes to build new habits.
The updated 80Bites app features an improved interface, graphs, and system to record bites. Milestones in the user's 80Bites progress are easily shared with friends through Facebook and Twitter. It is free for those who originally purchased 80Bites app and available to new users for 99 cents.
80Bites is the brainchild of Meredith Luce, MS, RD, LN, who has prepared hundreds of patient meals based on FDA recommended portions and Joan Briebart, who is renowned for popularizing pilates by founding The Method Pilates. The app is available for 99 cents for the iPhone and Android. The twelve-week 80Bites plan is available at www.80bitesplan.com for $49.95.
