INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- LifeOmic, the creators of the LIFE Fasting Tracker app, today announced version 2.0 of the app with new features designed to empower health and fasting coaches as well as connect app users with others in the intermittent fasting (IF) community to optimize health goals. Since launching a few months ago, the mobile app has already surpassed 100,000 downloads on iOS and Android devices, with 16 million fasting hours tracked and the average user engaging with the app twice daily. The LIFE Fasting Tracker is the first product of the LIFE apps portfolio built by LifeOmic, a software company that leverages the cloud, machine learning and mobile devices to power precision health solutions.
"It's mind-boggling that just a few short months after its introduction, more than 100,000 people around the globe are using our app to learn about fasting and to practice IF with those they care about," said Dr. Don Brown, CEO and founder, LifeOmic. "We're dedicated to developing technology like the LIFE Fasting Tracker to deliver evidence-based, precision health. We're proud to have played a part in the movement that has started around intermittent fasting."
LIFE Fasting Tracker enables users to track their eating habits, monitor mood and now record their weight to sustain and improve metabolic health. Users can also share their progress and activity within the LIFE social network and utilize the app's extensive library of scientific-based educational content provided by the LifeOmic LIFE Apps site. These new features encourage users to be more active in their health journeys, including seeking support and connecting socially, which are known predictors of improved health.
LIFE App user Adnan Tanveer has lost more than 150 pounds with intermittent fasting and has been using LIFE Fasting Tracker app to support his weight loss goals. "I'd been struggling with my weight for several years before I came across the LIFE app," said Tanveer. "I use the LIFE app every day to record my IF hours. I love that the hours you've fasted and been in ketosis are front and center."
The new update includes improved social functions to allow users to publicly share their intermittent fasting journey and connect with others via LIFE Circles. These user-generated communities encourage people to discover other fasters through commonalities such as gender and location or similar interests, whether it be overnight fasting, time-restricted eating, prolonged fasting or combined with another diet, to build a support network. LIFE Circles also allows users to set goals and view when friends and family are fasting in real-time with live updates.
"We noticed how much people wanted their fasting to be social," said Matt Ferguson, LifeOmic's mobile product manager. "The social aspects of our app are helping people to live healthier, so we doubled down and developed ways for people to discover and interact with other fasting groups."
