Hard to work 2/5
It’s not super user friendly. They need to take some tips from the weight watcher community on simplicity in serving sizes. If I want to make a recipe or a meal it is ridiculously difficult to figure out how to log in the app that as a bariatric patient I probably consumed 1-2 ounces of this soup that feeds four people. Rough!!!
Post op tool 5/5
This has been so helpful! I only found it after my vsg but I wish o had found it sooner to take advantage of the countdown feature! My favorite thing is that you can change the increment of the ounces you are logging.
After the update the app now crashes whenever I click on checklist please fix this
Love of Baritastic!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ 5/5
The BARITASTIC APP is super easy to use! Soooooo many categories to choose from! Super easy way to put in your food and track everything from carbs to calories, even if you buy items from a convenience store or fast food restaurant! The app even offers recipes and a calendar to remind you of you upcoming appointments!!! I HIGHLY recommend the BARITASTIC APP
Listing food 4/5
I can’t figure out how to get my food that I have ate on there
An app for Bariatric patients 5/5
This is a Wonderful app for people who are preparing for bariatric surgery, who have just had the surgery, and those who are maintaining. The app provided a pre-op checklist and a post-op checklist. It’s flexible enough to modify and simple enough to use on a daily basis.
I really like that you can add reminders and connect to other apps like the apple HealthKit and the Fitbit Scale.
My only regret is the my medical staff doesn’t use the app to make a more customized experience, track my progress, and provide feedback based on my results. I think bariatric staff and nutritionists/dieticians should adopt this app for their patients.
Excellent app 5/5
By pink princesd
I love this app you can track EVERYTHING. And I love the daily journal
Has it all 5/5
This app has it all. Every thing I could want in a app. Photos, measurements, water logging, food tracking. Definitely going to hope keep me on track. Love the reports as well.
Great app, but 2 recommendations 4/5
By BA Bob
This is really a great app, not just for those considering surgery but for those interested in a healthier diet and/or losing weight (like me). 1) I would love to see an iPad version that is formatted for the iPad, even though this works ok on an iPad it doesn’t take advantage of the larger screen. 2) In addition to showing the progress towards goals (of protein, calories, carbs, etc) at the top of the Daily Log screen to show what remains towards the goals. I’ve seen it in other apps and I miss that feature here. However, Baritastic is still my first choice.
Great tool 5/5
It’s a great tool for those who have had Bariactrics surgery!! Much easier than noom and fitness pal. I put everything in the app that is important to me and it gives me the facts that I need to record.
Food log suggestion 3/5
Need to be able to add multiple items at once to the food log not just 1 by 1
I want to look up restaurants 1/5
Lose-It app allows me to look up restaurants
Gold Standard App 5/5
I would use this for any weight loss or healthy lifestyle tracking.
They should call this the ‘mindful body’ app because it really is a daily whole person lifestyle chart, but with that name, few people would download it. This is the BEST lifestyle/health app out there, and ogging your food here simply can’t get easier. Their database of food items you might log is ENORMOUS and grows each day. Instant charts are generated to give you immediate visual feedback on your progress. Download it, and enjoy a better life managed by you through Baritastic!
Weight app 5/5
Love this app so user friendly
Easy peasy 5/5
This app is easy to use and gives me all the information I need on a daily basis.
Food Log forgets entries 3/5
I absolutely love the app, but the issue is that it forgets the entries I make after a while. I have to rescan foods all the time. Five star app if this was fixed
Fantastic App! 5/5
As soon as the clinic recommended this app to teach food intake even six months prior to my scheduled surgery, I downloaded and started using it. Even though I’ve successfully lost weight four times previously (I’m horrible at keeping it off) I had never tracked my food intake and considered it a waste of time - that was until I started using this app. It has been so helpful and informative in helping me lose weight prior to surgery and I’m convinced it will be a critical tool to use after surgery. I am able to view my caloric, water, and other macronutrient intake with informative graphs. I am easily able to enter information into the app and it does the rest. Remarkable! With this app I can clearly see how many calories per day I’m taking in and on my Apple Watch I can clearly see how many calories I’m burning up. I have compared this with other subscription apps and this one is superior and, for now, it is FREE! I only wish the hospital I’m associated with worked directly with this app.
Great app but needs a couple tweaks 4/5
By JB Culpepper
So first off I love this app! It has been great in helping myself to keep myself accountable. I had surgery ten years ago and noticed I was starting to put some weight back on. This app has been great at helping me to recognize old bad habits starting to creep up on me.
The one issue I have is with the formula used to calculate calories. For example I made the fluffiest scrambled eggs that they have listed in the recipes. This is four eggs and cheese. It is 153 calories in the app. The next day I made the exact same thing only with three eggs instead of four. It was listed as 273 calories.
Additionally the three eggs have more protein, sugar and carbs than the four egg version. This is the exact same ingredients as the four egg just missing one egg. If anything it should have less not more.
Apple Watch please 5/5
I love this app and use it faithfully every day. It helps me stay on top of my vitamins and my meals and water!! I only wish it was available on my Apple Watch!
Enjoying!!!!so very helpful!! 5/5
I am just starting my pre op diet & this App is going to be so helpful .
Being a 71 yr. old female learning a new way of eating & selecting nutritious foods vs. not so healthy options this App will definitely be a big help. Even has simple recipes to try for my husband.
The best I’ve seen ... 3/5
This app performs a lot of great functions for bariatric patients and can be very helpful. However, it is not easy to learn or intuit. I floundered with it for five
Months post-surgery. I checked in occasionally to find messages from my bariatric center encouraging me to post meals. I have finally powered through making a hash of my food diaries and weight log. I can sort of use it now.
Love it 5/5
By Ms Wigg
This is the best it keeps track of everything for me. I would be lost without it.
Great app 5/5
Baritastic is great. It is so easy to track all of the essential information you need for things related to Bariatric surgery and health in general. I strongly encourage one to use this app.
Super Useful! 4/5
I am 1 week post surgery (RNY) and I have been faithfully using this app to track my food, water etc & it’s been incredibly helpful! Pre-surgery I used My Fitness Pal and it was ok. But because BariatricPal is made specifically for us who have (or will be getting) bariatric surgery, it’s WAY more useful. The reminders are awesome & I really like the daily journal to record my thoughts, take pics etc. Some elements can feel a little clunky and am hopeful they will expand the food & exercise data bank soon. But overall I would highly recommend using this app to stay on track.
By Rhonda, CCMA
Easy to use and to keep track of food, exercise and goals.
Great weight loss surgery support 5/5
I am so grateful for this app. I have used a lot of weight loss trackers but this one is tailored to the Bariatric community. I track every morsel, sip and vitamin that I ingest. It’s simple to use, offers great recipes and a Social Media group as well. It has helped teach me accountability and a way to live for the future, not just during this weight loss phase. Thank you!
Superb App 5/5
I’ve used quite a few apps for weight loss and I have to say this is by far the best of the best! The hydration, reminders, ease of use is great.
The only thing I would suggest would be to have it compatible with Apple watch but I’m not going to harp on it and doesn’t take away from this great app. The developers have done an awesome job.
Great App!! 5/5
This app is so helpful, it helps me stay on track on how much protein, water, vitamins, calories, etc that I’m in taking . Amazing app! Thanks!!
I’m really enjoying this app 5/5
This is better suited to my specific dietary needs post VSG!
Awesome app 5/5
By Zen life
This has been amazing and just as if not more effective than the paid app I was previously using. Tracks everything and sets reminders. My only downside is that it doesn’t feed into Apple health the way my other app did. Overall this app is awesome.
Perfect app 5/5
Perfect app to keep track of everything you consume. Definitely love the reminders and how you can just scan the bar code of whatever you’re eating and it will jot it down.
Luv it! 5/5
Helps me keep track of my day and keep accountable.
Good app for post wls 4/5
I gave this app a 4 ✡️ because everything and everyone needs room for improvement. I was told about this app by my WLS doctors office and it has been a big part of my post surgery life. I document my water intake, food intake, exercise, and weight loss. You can connect your fitness tech items like Fitbit to it as well. I can say It keeps me on my toes from slacking. I recommend this app to anyone who is or will be having weight loss surgery. Download it asap and good luck! ❤️💜
Please edit this feature 2/5
Give the same measurement options for every single food. Ounces, grams, cups, tbsps, for example. I often have to pull up an “ounces to grams” calculator to figure out how to record a food if you don’t give me that option. Just give me all the options for every food!!
Weight start! 3/5
You cannot easily restart the start weight and date!! Sometimes I like to take break and change the weight start and date! Very hard to do this!!
Love this app! 5/5
Love this app! Very easy to use and intuitive, LOTS of great features but also easy to figure out and navigate.
Easy to use
Amazing and useful 5/5
Right now, I am new to this and it’s amazing! It’s so simple and cute. Honestly, I couldn’t have asked for a better health app.
By From Texas, U.S.A.
I’m having trouble with Baritastic app saving the food or the time it transfers to the next day.
When I woke up this morning, yesterday’s food was on today and I edited it.
Now that it’s evening time it’s not showing that anything that I put in.
Love the App 4/5
I have used the app which I LOVE great tool! I had a few hiccups ordering vitamins but it was handled quick and fast and they where prompt about it. So thank you
Just what I needed 5/5
This app has so much going for it such as being able to log all your food and water intake, a great support group connected to it, reminders to help you out with everything, and so much more. It’s been such an important tool in my success with before and after wls.
Love this tool! Keeps me accountable and on track for sure!! I find it is easier to stay on when I can physically see my numbers and the scan and search features are awesome!
The app started to crash! 1/5
The app audience started to crash, I cant input any food item! Please fox it i really depend on it!
Love this app 5/5
Best feature of all is that i can log my food in by voice. It recognizes what im saying and always gets it right. Makes tracking my food so much easier. Total game changer!!!
By Maria Faria-Hester
I love this app. It makes tracking my meals super easy. My only complaint (if you can even call it that) is that they do not have a website interface to mirror the app like other similar apps.
First week of use 2/5
S-L-O-W to enter foods. No intuitive database observed so far.
Love this app 5/5
I love the help and reminders this app provides. It’s a Great tool to help with the tool of the surgery.
This app is really helping me to keep my information straight. I especially love the reminders so that I don’t get behind on my protein, water and vitamins. It also is a great reminder of where I started and how far I have come. It helps me feel successful.
My Journey of good health and a happy life. 5/5
