PROBLEM

Did you know that it takes 20 minutes for your brain to know that your stomach is full?

INSIGHT

Most Americans eat too fast, and as a result they take in too many calories before they realize they've eaten enough.

So how can we make ourselves eat slower and less without really thinking about it?

The APP

A coach character provides information and instructions at a level you are comfortable with.

 

 

Process

Sensor Research
I landed on the behind-the-ear sensor because it is discreet and accurately measures sounds to determine what you are doing, automatically. 

Fitness Tracker Research and User Testing
I found that people want a quick snapshot of their performance so I decided to provide the data in a digestible way.

Wireframe, Design, Prototype, and Evaluation
After receiving positive feedback to the coach characters, I decided to incorporate them into all screens. Each coach has a personality that will determine how intense the app will be.
