We've followed an intermittent fast for the last 2.5 years, but only in the last year did we start looking at software to track progress, and to indicate when the desired time had passed to begin eating. We've happily used Zero for the last nine months and recommend it to anyone into intermittent fasting.
Why Use An App?
Whether you're following a circadian schedule for eating or the typical 16:8, you may think that it's pretty easy to just remember when you last ate before eating again, and that's generally true. But there are days when you know you didn't hit your target because of a social event or just lack of fortitude, you begin to wonder - just how often do I hit my target??
Using an app to track your long-term progress will give you a better sense of how well you're reaching your goals.
What gets measured, gets done.
Features Of Zero
- Preset Fast Timers - Along with the aforementioned 13 hour and 16 hour fasts, Zero also supports an 18:6, 20:4, and 36 hour fast. If you venture into prolonged fasts, which we do a couple of times a year for a few days, you can set a custom fast up to 7 days.
- Simple - After setting your desired fast state, you simply start and stop your fast once per day.
- History - At a glance see how often you hit your target over the last week, or expand to view all history.
- New for 2020 - Now you can integrate reporting of resting heart rate, weight, and sleep with your fasting habits via sync with apps like Google Fit.
- Great team - Zero’s advisory team includes some of the world’s leading doctors and researchers, including their Chief Medical Officer Dr. Peter Attia, who guides their fasting protocols and content creation.
