FatApp for iPhone Now Available on iTunes Reinforces Holiday Maintain Don't Gain Diet Approaches.

As featured in the humorous YouTube video "You Didn't Eat It" the FatApp provides positive reinforcement for calories unconsumed. It's what you don't eat that counts.

Part of the cycle of overeating is impulsive and quickly regretted consumption.

Sometime it takes the slightest redirection to help a person avoid that extra cookie, donut, or serving.

FatApp provides that redirection by enabling the eater to give themselves credit for what they did not eat.

Select or enter the food not eaten. Calories unconsumed are added to totals and converted into pounds not gained.

It is immediate positive reinforcement for making healthy choices with none of the negative connotations associated with typical calorie counting.

It is a useful intrinsic motivating tool for health educators, weight management organizations, nutritionists, and the people they serve..

"FatApp is a gem in the weight management realm. Built entirely as positive reinforcement, the control is in your hands. I recommend it to my patients." Dr. Maria Gherman, MD MPH Board Certified, American Board of Preventive Medicine, Primary Care and Weight Management

FatApp, normally $.99, is free for the holiday season December 20, 2011 through January 1, 2012. It is the New Year's Resolution anyone can keep.

Purchase it anytime for the price of a donut at itunes.apple.com/us/app/fatapp/id477068404

Fat App Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later.
