Feast was created to offer a different kind of experience than most food tracker apps offer, as they are mostly focused on calorie counting and weight loss via deprivation. Recognizing that many people are looking for ways to support their health that are simple and fun, Feast sets itself apart as a help rather than a hindrance. As Jackie Kim, co-founder and CEO of Feast, says: "When I was trying to lose weight for my wedding, I hated how the food trackers reduced foods to numbers where the goal is to eat as little as possible to come under an artificial calorie limit. I also realized how calorie counting can worsen symptoms of eating disorders."
Feast gets users to take a picture of what's on their plate and this act alone encourages a moment of mindfulness.
