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
By Boo Babe822
Supportive and keeping me on track of moving forward.
The only reason I give this a 4 star and not 5 4/5
By Calmer in Florida
Is because on the weight tracker page all of the text and colors are so light you can’t read anything on it. That’s a pretty important page to not be able to read. Needs color contrast!!
Works great and is a big help!
Great Find 5/5
I am new to using this App but so far I love it!!!
I enjoy the reminders and the Protein and water log activity.
I had the Gastric Sleeve surgery in Jan and the hardest part for me was making sure to get my protein and water in each day. This App make it easier and convenient. I am going to tell the Support group on our next visit.
It’s ok not great 3/5
By The Bean girl
This app doesn’t have a lot of foods and some of the foods there I question their validity.
It has everything 5/5
By Kelly G2912
Really great app which helps with food, water intake, acknowledging your protein and carbs, and especially a reminder for all the pills we have to take.
Love the app but 4/5
I love this app but I have a problem with the steps. I can have any where from 1000 to 5000 steps and it still says 1 calorie. My app watch 440 calories but this app still says 1 calorie. Please help
Easy to use and fun
Not what I wanted 2/5
Don’t like to be forced to log in to an app.
I wanted an info app. Nutritional info, etc.
I hate apps that will not work in both portrait and landscape!!
Duodenal Switch not even listed in procedures.
I will use the recipe portion, don’t see much else.
Love it! 4/5
The only complaint I have is it would be nice to add multiple meals. We are supposed to have 5-6 meals a day and we can only log in 3 meals and a snack. Other than that it is user friendly and fuller easy to log in everything. I also love the reminders.
Idea to improve 5/5
I love this app I just thought of some things it needs for improvement. Bariatric needs to up date there app and add a Bariatric meal planning part. Where you pull what recipes you want for the week in a calendar and set a day meal planning for that week with reminders and tips!!! They already have recipes on there so it would be nice to be able to click on it and say add to meal plan. Also would love for it to actually link to my Apple Watch to track my steps, workouts and calories burned. Also if I get busy and do not log in one meal at the end of the day it will show 0 logs under my member information which is not true. If entries are made for that day it should count as a day logged.
This app is wonderful. Makes tracking so easy, and is extremely user-friendly. Highly recommend!
Awesome App 5/5
This app is totally awesome! You can track so many different things and it is really user friendly.
Very pleased! 5/5
By puppet woman
I am so pleased with how easy this app is to use and how it’s so quick and fun to use!!!❤️
Not so user friendly 3/5
I’ve used other food tracking apps that are self explanatory. I’m struggling with this one to get the hang of it.
Pretty neat 5/5
I’m still trying to navigate through the app, but getting there. I’m technically challenged so saying that and I’m able to log my food, add a group and found the store I’m doing good!! My Dr office told me about the app because I have trouble getting my water in & you can set reminders to drink, eat & exercise which is awesome!!! So far 👍👍 2 thumbs up!!
Awesome app 5/5
Been using about 5 days made several recipes and have lost 14 pounds love this app
