I like it…but (Updated)
Update: I have to give credit where credit is due. Upon opening the app today, I saw it had been updated to both allow me to change which day or days I wish to not fast, and let me set up daily goals once again. This has made my experience so much better, and I am very happy. I would probably recommend this app now, especially if issues like this are sorted out this quickly. Of course, the update could have already been on its way too. But regardless, I am pleased with it. I’ve enjoyed the app overall so far, but am annoyed by some things. One, the first day I set it up, I was able to set up some kind of daily goal of my own. After that first day, it completely disappeared and I could not find anything related to it again. Secondly, I wanted to have a free day on Sunday, but it was still tracking my fast for Saturday. So I thought well maybe I should move my free day to Saturday technically, and maybe that will solve the issue. Right? But then I found that I can’t move my free day without resetting my account and losing all my progress. Who decided that was a good idea?? I paid money for this app too, because I really liked it at first. But seriously, it needs some work still. Update: I tried resetting my account in order to change which day is my free day…and it didn’t give me an option to change that! So so dumb. I lost my progress for nothing. I’m really unhappy that I paid for this app now. Cannot recommend.

Love it! Helpful and Encouraging!
I’ve wanted to change my habit of over eating and develop self discipline. They say “when you control what you eat, you can control your world”. The app without the Fastic plus has been amazing! There were times I wanted to give up and give in to the foods when my family would eat very late at night but it seems to know when you need encouragement. So far, I’ve been drinking more water, eating more veggies, and read valuable lessons that I have applied to my life. I have very little self control when it comes to food, especially meat. Veggies and I have become good friends now especially with my digestive system. I have more self discipline than before with food! I know if my family eats late, they always try to save me some for the next day during my eating period. A big plus was that I can have a fasting buddy! My boyfriend also has food controlling problems, he tends to eat very late at night and doesn’t have a routine applied. It has helped him lose fat in some areas of his figure! And develop a great routine for him to eat. And for me too! So far I’ve lost 7 pounds in the last week. I’m not starving myself, I’m drink more water and I feel so much better than before! The different levels of fasting also help too. I started with 16/8 but when things got difficult I reduced it a beginner level fasting then build up to 16/8 and that’s where I’ll stay and won’t go further. I’ll consider Fastic Plus in the future ❤️

I’ve fasted before, and I will fast again
I’ve been intermittent fasting for about 5-6 months now, about a month before quarantine, and this app is good at what it says it will do. As mentioned before, I’ve been fasting for a few months now, and I have very rarely broken the fast. I’m going to say only a handful of times in special situations, but it was always hard to remember the exact hours I would begin fasting. This app is great with keeping track of how long I’ve been fasting, and the feature of it alerting when the fasting is over is great as well. I don’t upgrade from the free version because honestly I just need something to help me track, and that’s exactly what this is. I’m aware I use it as a glorified stop-watch basically, but it meets all the needs I have in an app about tracking my fasting periods. I love the way that everything on the app is easily accessible and I can flip between screens as efficiently as I need too between breaks at work and whatnot. I love the little information that is given, even if it’s super basic information. It’s great as what it advertises to do, and it doesn’t make its advertisements all about the upgraded features that a lot of people don’t like to buy into. It’s a neat little app that is user friendly and I will be using for at least another month before I go back to college and get thrown off the routine. Keep up the good work guys!

Good, could be great
Pros: Good interface, encouraging, doesn’t try to tell you to fast 48 or 72 hours, sets you up for success (I love earning frosties so I can keep up my streak). Also in a world where everything is now subscription based I was able to get a whole year of plus on sale for like $24 which I decided was a really good price. I also like that I can find fun new recipes here. Lastly the “Academy” is nice and I like that with Plus I can track other goals too. Cons: I hope the app devs are reading this because I can’t find any other way to give feedback. 1) Should be able to set different goals for different days. With Plus I can choose some days to NOT fast but what I want is 15-9 5 days of the week and 20-4 two days. I have not found a way to set this yet. 2) Encourages “dirty” fasting with all sorts of fancy fruit flavored beverages. Anything that tastes like food is going to cause you to secrete insulin. A true “clean” fast should be nothing but water, electrolytes, plain black coffee and plain black or green tea. Check out the work of Gin Stephens for more on this. 3) No “up day/down day” fasting options, strictly a daily eating window model. You could fake it by setting your goal to 23-1 but only 1-3 days per week but it would be nice to see more information on different types of fasting models. 4) The “habits” don’t make much sense to me, whether I do the daily task or not it tells me it is finished?

A caring coach
I love Fastic! I’m so glad for the reminders I get to drink water and when to start fasting. The information the app developers put together for users is so helpful. I love the fasting graphic on here so that if I feel I’m struggling to reach my goal of a 12 or 16 or 20 hr fast, I can just go into the app and it’ll tell me what phase of the fasting period I’m on and what’s happening to my body. I also like the weight scale and seeing that orange bar steadily working its way to my goal weight. Seeing my progress visually really helps me stay motivated. If you are young and have been struggling with hormones and losing weight after gallbladder surgery, thyroid or hysterectomy or any other gynecologist type required surgery, I can honestly tell you intermittent fasting, exercise and using Young Living Esential oils and supplements have been helping me so much! It’s been months now since I’ve been on any anti depression medication thanks to Young Living’s emotional support oils and Fastic for the coaching. Also using MyPlate to track what your eating is also helpful in addition to the Fastic program! My only bummer comment is that there’s so much other great information but it’s only available if you pay for Fastic plus and not everyone has the money nor wants a health app we have to pay for to see content that could be helpful.

New Client
I have tried everything out there to lose weight. I refuse to medicate myself into “health.” This app has been the easiest and most user friendly guide I have ever used. To be able to just take a picture of my food and have it logged has been a game changer for me. I am in my first week. As a huge fan of nighttime snacking, this has really helped me understand how bad it is for my health (which I was well aware of, but just couldn’t ((didn’t)) stop). FASTIC has helped guide me. Granted, I’m only in my first week, but so far, so good. Also, I stand by the analogy that 30 days makes a habit. The first day I weighed in at 177. One week later, through increasing my water intake, monitoring my food intake (with very little change to my normal daily food choices), and adhering to a daily 14 hour fast, I am down to 173 pounds. That’s 4 pounds in 6 days. Again, user friendly, informative, flexible, multiple levels and degrees of fasting. I don’t have an Apple Watch or Fitbit, so my only problem is remembering to carry my phone everywhere I go in order to get a proper daily step count. I am loving this app and I am so glad I found it. 13-18 pounds to my goal weight. I feel much more capable of success with this app.

The Community Chat Needs Work
The Fastic App has potential to be a great tool, however there are some key issues with the community tab. After being on here for about two weeks, I’ve decided to delete the app. What’s the point in fasting from food if you can’t fast from negativity. The chat room is toxic 90% of the time from toxic behavior and no moderation. Fasting is a difficult task already and part of the attraction to the Fastic App was the ability to engage in conversation with others also on their respective journeys toward a healthier life. However, other Fastic users repeatedly spam the chat, attack other Fastic app users, and engage in extremely toxic behavior well into the classification of cyber bullying. I wish everyone the best on their journeys and remember you don’t have to take part in bad behavior. Insecurities really show here and sometimes it seems normal to be abusive, while not even realizing it. The block and reporting feature do not work at the moment so one can’t ignore the other persons behavior. It effects the entire atmosphere of the community tab. Please fix this chat or the select few who are inducing this behavior stop. With some changes to give the user more control on blocking and reporting, moderators or filters in the chat room, the app will be a great too for the countless humans ready to take a step to a healthier version of themselves. Regardless if you care or not, Enjoy and much love to you all. 🙏🏽❤️🌱.

Would be better if it was not a game
The app is great on many fronts. The aid to keep up with your water intake, the cycle of fasting calculations and the good information it provides alongside your fast. I don’t know anything about the coaches or any of the other paid sort as I’m on the free side. But get this: the app acts like a game! Even if you started your fast, if you did not activate it on the app, the app considers that day a loss. The app, like a game contains fire and stars and ice whatevers that you collect and use to skip days you lost to continue your progress and when you forget to notify the app of your fast and don’t have any ice or in game currency you automatically lose your progress. I get that the game is trying to keep you motivated, but the fact that it doesn’t activate without you checking in on it, ergo it shutting your progress so far because of it makes this app a complete money grab, and useless to say the least. I have only used it for 3 days, and so far it’s proving useful, but if you’re someone who lives life to the fullest and is too busy in the day to check your phone constantly to keep up with the app, then don’t bother. There are many other apps that do just the basics like calculate and time you while you fast! This app is no different when you’re on the free end and don’t bother with the “game” aspect of it...

Great app, but needs improvement
Overall it’s a great app when used in conjunction with a CICO monitoring app (like MyFitnessPal, etc.). But if you have this app installed on multiple devices, like a phone and a tablet, if you don’t open both apps every single day multiple times, one of the apps will think that you aren’t fasting anymore and will delete your streak or mess with your fasting clock. It’s frustrating to be on a streak only to have one of the apps stop your timer and delete your streak because it thinks that you stopped using it, when in reality you’ve been using it on your other device. Even being signed into my account on both devices doesn’t prevent this, I don’t understand why both apps don’t sync with each other when they are signed into the same account. Also every now and then I will do a 24-36 hour fast, if you don’t open the app with in that period several times, it will also assume that you stopped using the app and will reset or stop your clock, ruining your fasting and losing your streak. I understand and appreciate the coaching aspect of this app, but they really need to fine tune and relax these hard stops. Maybe extend the timer/streak resets to two or three days before automatically stopping the timer? I feel that about half the time I’m fighting with this app and I ultimately wish it would just leave my timer and streaks alone.

Buyer beware, Glitchy and deceptive marketing
I am an avid TRF/IF fan for therapeutic reasons, not just weight management. A friend of mine ask for help on the app, so I downloaded it, pretty straight forward, not difficult to use, limited capabilities. The main thing it does is bug you to upgrade constantly and say there is a 3 month guarantee. I went ahead and signed up for a year to see if it was worth it and if I should recommend the upgrade to my friends or the app to other IF enthusiasts, it doesn’t say conditional refund, but it certainly is. READ THE FINE PRINT. Conditional refund based upon daily use for 90 days, putting your weight in weekly and not losing 3% of your weight. So it is not a refund at all. You can not actually fast on schedule for 90 days and not lose 3% of your body weight. So perhaps there is some value in the free side of this, but paying anything is a waste of money, with no satisfaction guarantee. The help center is not in English. They do not have an Apple Watch app, which would be helpful, clearing up the crash instances would be good. It does not connect to Apple health other than for steps, so you must manually enter weight to track progress. It does not conform to CCPA and GDPR standards. So using the Free side, might be helpful, but there are many alternatives out there, that do not harass for upgrade. Good Luck, You have been warned.

The only app that has really helped me lose weight
Fastic has far exceeded my expectations. There are so many features that this app includes. It’s amazing. You simply enter in when you start fasting, enter the length that you want to fast every day and you’re pretty much set! There are also challenges that the app encourages you to do every day. When you are fasting there is a timer that tell you how long you have left to fast and what is happening to your body in detail while you’re fasting. After you press the stop fasting button it’s shows you up in the top right corner how long you’ve fasted and it shows in the top middle how many days you’ve fasted. If you ate 30 minutes past the time you were supposed to stop, that’s okay! You can change what time you stopped eating or even when you stopped fasting! I’ll always recommend this amazing app and I’ll be using it until the app is gone! It’s not only good for losing weight, fasting helps get rid of bad toxins in your body. Who wouldn’t want an app that helps you be more healthy? This app is definitely worth it. Go for it! Get this app for a better healthier lifestyle.

Great for intermittent fasting!
I had been trying to fast intermittently for quite some time (since over a year ago) but I just wasn’t sticking to my goals. I’d fast for a week or two and then throw all of my progress out the window to eat a bunch of sugar and carbs. I repeatedly lost and gained and lost and gained the same 20 pounds during the last year. After downloading this app, I’m able to stay motivated and encouraged - seeing your progress is extremely helpful! I also love how it helps you track your water intake and daily step count, and you also log your weight changes and even mood changes! I went from struggling to make it to a 16 hour fast to confidently completing 72 hour fasts! I also really enjoy the updates it provides about what state your body is in based on how long you’ve been fasting, if you’re burning fat or in autophagy, it lets you know and that is a huge motivator for me to stick to my goals and finally lose the weight I gained when I had my son (he’s 3 now)! Thank you Fastic for helping me achieve my goals when I couldn’t do it all on my own!

Best Fasting App (& I tried a few)
The best easy feature of Fastic is the visual timer so you know where you’re at in the fasting or food window. Reading the courses and tips are served in bite-sized bits that are easy to consume daily like a brain vitamin. I thought I already knew a lot about nutrition, but I have been pleasantly surprised by how much I continue to learn. Today I’m on day 61 and this this has been the easiest lifestyle change I have ever made! If I want to use a “frosty” (a cheat day), I use one! This is a gentle approach to health and weight loss. I have been losing about a pound a week without even trying. Yes, that’s super slow, but my scale continues to give me smaller numbers each week and I will just keep on keeping on until my body plateaus at a healthy-for-me weight. An unexpected side effect is that I *crave* healthier foods!! The thought of having fast food now is not appealing. I cannot recommend Fastic enough to those who are on the fence. The people who have developed this are highly knowledgeable yet use a non-judgmental approach. If I could give it 6 stars, I would! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Easy To Use
I started using the app almost 2wks ago. I used the free version and thought I’d give that a try first before upgrading to the Plus version. I just upgraded today. It’s worth it. I like how it reminds you to drink your water and tacks it , has a built in step tracker and “education corner “ where there is a few courses to learn. There is also a menu with what looks like 100 or more recipes. Tips & recipes on what to eat when breaking fast. Track your weight and your progress with this app. I really like that it will tell you what process your body is undergoing at certain points of time during the fast. Very interesting and cool app. I’m sticking with my fast and while I’ve not gotten on scale yet to weigh in , I can tell I’m feeling much better and my clothes are looser. It’ll be easier to get into the habit of eating when I’m actually hungry (which I’m not during fast ) Vs eating out of boredom and this app helps with that. If you serious about changing your health , give it a try. The free version is great as is. I just wanted to explore a bit more and got the Plus version . Either is good. Do it!

This app is exactly what I was looking for to begin IF!!!
Love this app so far! It has everything I need. Even though there are added benefits I am missing out on by not using the Plus version, I feel like the free features are excellent! I LOVE that with the free version you don't have to watch ads every 5 seconds to utilize the services!!! No ads which makes it most amazing!! Most apps bombard you with ads unless you pay to upgrade. I love the countdown for the eating window that I set for myself. I love that you can change the fasting/ eating window at any time (even during a fast). I love the helpful tips they give you every day that give an overall way to think about health and things you can do to make those needed changes. I love that it is a simple way to track your water intake too. I have already recommended this to friends because it's a great app! I have only been using it for 4 days now, but it is going to become a daily part of my life from now on! Honestly, no complaints or recommendations because it's already exactly what I need!

Just started, but I’ve already lost weight
I picked a difficult level from the get go (fast 6:30pm-12:30pm). It’s hard for me right now, but getting easier by the day. The app helps you track and reminds you to drink water, which I really need. It gives you daily challenges like “eat a handful of nuts to break your fast.” There are exercise challenges and it counts your steps. It gave me nutrition selections and recipes for vegetarians because I was able to select that option. If you forget to hit the button that you are fasting or done, then you can retroactively change it. It adjusts fasting times for you. I started at 6:10 pm last night so I fast until 12:10pm today. I’m using this for weight loss and 3 days in, I’ve lost 3-4 pounds. I have also stopped using artificial sweeteners, part of a challenge. Everyday, it gives you a lesson into intermittent fasting and they are interesting. I also don’t feel like my migraines are any worse with this. I don’t feel sluggish or foggy. So, only a few days in, but totally recommend this! I’m also pleased it’s helping me make better choices (like no artificial sweeteners in drinks and eating more nuts/dried fruit to feel satiated.

By Far A Better IF APP!!!
I had used Fastic in late December 2021 to early 2022 with amazing results! I lost almost 10 pounds! The automated timer, water tracker, and motivational tools & tips are such a facilitative tool to support you on your weight loss journey towards your goals. I paused my IF for a few months with undesirable results 😔 When I picked back up, I tried another IF fasting app, and it was then I appreciated the great value, cutting edge, and innovative technology Fastic provided. It was like night and day! Fastic is intuitive, easy to use, automated, visually appealing, motivational, and outcome oriented! It is by far a more robust and systematic app. It builds in continuity in the fasts. With the other app, I had to enter in my fast plan weekly. While that may present some flexibility, it was labor intensive and manual. It was also somewhat counter productive. Needless to say, I came running back to Fastic and have been using it again for a week. I’m excited at the results to come. I highly highly highly recommend Fastic as a facilitative tool to reach your health and weight loss goals. Kudos Fastic!!!

Love this app!
I am a type of a person who can download bunch of apps but soon to find that I am not using them. I had lots of stress after loosing my husband a year and half ago. My weight sky rocketed and I seem to be in a vicious circle. I learned a lot about Intermittent Fasting (IF) but it was hard to keep up with everything falling on my plate. With this app I feel I can totally do it! And actually doing it! My game now is to stick with it. It has been a week and since the way app is made I am logging in every day and with helpful hints I am keeping up with my IF. I feel great. I am not craving sweets or junk. More over my sleep is much better, which was a huge issue. I lost two pounds, in first week which is a game😃 every week loose two pounds . But most importantly my clothes feels loose. Yes I am loosing inches! I want to thank developers and creators of this app. I like the way you did it. Also reminding me to log in with my crazy busy schedule very helpful! It is like having personal assistant who is watching you for your healthy habits!

Great but recent issues
I’ve been using the app for 9 months and am a paid user. It is the reason I’ve lost 30 pounds and have now finally achieved a “healthy” BMI again after the fluctuations of growing 2 human beings. It taught me the science of fasting to motivate me, prompts me to drink throughout the day, and in general holds me accountable. I loooove the graph of weight over time, which for me is quite motivational. But it’s not just the weight loss - when you take yourself to autophagy on a regular basis, you really do begin to feel “clean”. It’s really been very nice for me- which is not to say it will work for everyone. There are a few issues: 1. Support is suuuuuper slow. In early December, it took them about 5 days to auto-acknowledge they had received my message and another week to answer. 2. So. Many. Glitches. I have no idea why someone thought the latest major update was a good idea. As reviews show, newer people can’t figure out how to set their fasting splits. Also, the app is now telling me to fast before it’s actually my fasting time and WORSE tells me it’s time to eat before my timer is up! That’s ridiculous.

Good free app, great with paid plan
I gave it 3 stars because what I got it for is great, but the other stuff is either just ok, too basic, or you have to pay in order to use. I got it just for the fasting tracker, which is great if you are doing 16:8 fasting. There is no other fasting option. But, you choose your start time and it lets you know your end time. And there is a timer that counts down, and it will send you notifications when to start and stop. This feature is great and really the only thing I use it for. The other features it offers for free are ok. The step counter works great. Just carry your phone everywhere you go and it counts your steps (as long as it’s not in your purse or bag). Works just like the built-in pedometer on the Health app. You can even set a step goal. The water tracker allows you to set a daily goal, but you can only count water and only in 8oz increments. (I use the Drink Water app-it’s free and works much better.) You can also have a friend join you in fasting. If you both have the app or an account it will track your progress together. You need to pay for a membership plan to access all the other features such as eating suggestions and meal plans, challenges, help, etc.

Thankful, but…
I am grateful for the information that this app provides. I am also grateful for the accountability that having it in front of me and reminding me provides throughout the day. It is just what I needed to take control over my habits. However, with that said, I’m very disappointed that it seems to be all AI driven (a good use of it, for sure) and that that does not facilitate customer service or help. I have emailed through the AI chat suggested email address multiple times with no response. When I went to the app website I found a different address and emailed that one as well, again with no response. The only other contact possibility is to mail a paper letter to Berlin and hope for a response. I wouldn’t be frustrated at all if I just had the free app, but I took the extra step of purchasing the ‘Plus’ membership so that I could truly benefit from the daily ‘habit’ tracking features. They are not working in my app and I have no way of gent help. Not going to cancel, because even as it is I am making better choices daily than I had been on my own, but I sure would like to be able to use the stated functionality. Disappointed!

Amazing app
This app is so helpful! It easily organizes good information about healthy living so you know what you need to research (not that you need to, it provides such thorough facts), and the challenges are a super fun way to learn new ways to live well. I have no complaints except for one thing, which I know might be kind of annoying and is trivial but: on all of the courses I’ve read (which are super helpful, by the way) there is at least one place where something is listed and there isn’t a comma before the “and”. Oxford commas are so important so you know certain things aren’t in lists aren’t grouped together. For example: the bus was full of crazy people, you and your friends. Obviously there’s no sentences like this one in Fastic, but it could get confusing at times. I know this is kind of ridiculous, and I don’t mind if the commas aren’t there for any amount of time, but I just thought it would be a nice way to make the app more polished. Everything else is wonderfully done and I’m very impressed.

Great App Minus Community Chat
I loved this app! That is until my second day when I got into the community chat portion. I had a few questions about intermittent fasting, so I decided to give the group chat a try. I was instantly bullied, cussed at, and so were others who were trying to use the app for (shocker) intermittent fasting! I was then told to get off the group chat if I wasn’t going to “act sexy” or socialize on it. Then I was told I should not be on there for fasting questions. The horrible part (to make matters even worse) was that some of their employees were also involved in the inappropriate chat sessions. Nevertheless, I made my complaint and was only told they were “sorry” for my inconvenience. I wouldn’t pay half of the money that they are charging for this app to be bullied and cussed at. Truth is it’s a half decent app, if you’re willing to put up with the above crap and don’t mind paying for not being able to have full usage of it. I don’t think I will be renewing my membership at the end of the month. There are a tons of decent fasting apps for half the price.

Quit Changing Displays For the Sake of Making a Change
Opened the app today after the recent update and the fasting display was changed. Your changed the colors, for whatever reason, and now I cannot quickly see the phase of my fast based on the color. You did not add information or make the information presented more usable, you just changed it for the sake of change. As a software developer of over 50 years experience, I despise changes that do not improve the experience or present new, valuable information but merely show that you are capable of making a change. I do not use Fastic as a sensual experience but rather as a mechanism for tracking and improving my fasting. Instead of changing the way information is displayed for the sake of making it “prettier,” focus on changes that improve functionality and usability like allowing me to set a fasting schedule for each day. I’d like to be able to set the length and start of my fast for each day so it can reflect my actual schedule/needs and not have the app expect everyday to be the same or that I will daily remember to make the required changes.

Fastic great app
I gained in weight a year ago. I'm 5’0, and I have been skinny all my life until my hormone starting kicking off a year ago. I have always been active, but since I'm getting a little bit, older. I'm getting lazy. My knees aren't healthy like it used too, plus also I got married since then my weight got out of control. I gain 20 pounds I used to be 110 now 130. However, I decide to pay for this app to help me reach my goal and learn to control my eating habits. So far I'm thrilled because I started on Monday and today is Wednesday I have lost 3pounds which I weight now 127 until I reach my goal I won't stop. There is a lot of support, great lessons and community support as well I have joined the Facebook fastic community, and there people giving you advice. Don't hesitate to give a try so far it works. Also, this app provides you a receipt for healthy food, and there is a lot another great thing they provide. Try you won't be disappointed. However, you need to be very strong, willing not to be tempted. Good luck.

Lost 61 lbs with the help of this app but….
The recent updates are horrible, the app is glitching, the AI is annoying and sends too many notifications, the ADs are out of control and when I press anywhere in the app not necessarily the ad banner itself the app forces me to go to 3rd party sites. So for example, I could be trying to start or stop my fasting clock and it kicks me out of the app and opens a window in my web browser to some website, that’s not right. I don’t want to be forced onto a possibly fraudulent website. I don’t care for the change of the water conversion from Cup/Ounces to Liters. Also when I start my fasting clock the app will keep asking me when am I going to start my fasting clock after I’ve already done it and it keeps sending notifications asking if I realized that I hadn’t started the clock when it’s already been clicked on. This app was not like this a year ago. When the app was good it was extremely helpful, and it still has its helpful aspects but I’m giving it 3 stars at this time because now it feels more like an annoyance when I open the app.

Wish I'd found this sooner!!!!
Having developed a severe histamine intolerance and desperate to heal my gut (root cause) I started IF 6 months ago. To keep track of my fasting times I found a bare bones timer which worked OK, but not tailored to the fasting experience, of course. When Dr. Mindy Pelz recommended Fastic I tried it, and WOW, the real-time fasting guidance and information it provides is helpful even after 6 months of doing it on my own. I like that it encourages me to drink water (I get constipated when I don't!) and other features like steps that it syncs with Apple Health. My only complaint is that the design is for 23 hour fasts and under. It counts the fast hours over that, but the history green bars on days after the first 24 hours don't show up as green; it makes it look like you failed on the days you didn't eat at all except for the first day. But it's a small complaint that didn't even merit losing a star. If I could rate it 4.5 that'd be representative.

I’m not impressed
This app is fine for a simple timer to see how long you’ve been fasting and it includes a water tracker, which is great, but I have learned more from support groups and free online resource about how to fast compared to the lessons this app offers. I joined Fastic’s recommended group and everyone in there is hateful. Mocking and belittling others decision to clean fast vs. dirty fast; dieting vs. straight fasting (shaming food choices diring eating window). During my time in the group, I added some users as a Buddy. This resulted in tons of notifications when someone started fasting, multiple (5+) push notifications for one, single person who just began fasting. Also a notifications every single day when I reached 12 hours of fasting asking me how I feel, but it was at night when I was sleeping. That was not useful at all. Since I have no ability to customize notifications, I had to turn all off. Constant ads to update to plus membership in another language. I couldn’t read the offer to even make a decision. Yes, the language/location on both the app and my phone is correct. This app was more annoying than useful.

Helpful and Supportive App
I have been using Fastic for the better part of a year now and am happy with the results. I find the app to be very encouraging and reminds me of both when to start, when to eat, and occasionally to drink water - all without feeling overbearing or gratuitous. From dietary tips to healthy habits, there are many useful tips and guides available to you. Without any change in physical exercise habits (I am working on doing more) I lost over 20 lbs just from being faithful to my fasting routine. Fastic uses a point system by awarding you stars (points / app currency) which are earned by fire king you fast for abs if you’re consistent throughout the week. Stars can be saved up and then spent on freezes. You can then freeze your fasting and buy a “cheat day” for things like a date night where you’ll be consuming calories being your eating window - or if you’re just wanting to indulge and treat yourself to that late night snack while bringing your favorite new TV series or whatever. I’ve really been enjoying this app and feel less bloated and more alert thanks to it helping me track, monitor, and encourage a consistent fasting routine. My only big feature request would maybe be to add a vacation option. I took a week long vacation recently and would have liked to pause during that time (let’s be real, I’m not fasting on vacation). Highly recommend this app!

Wasted my money
I should’ve stuck to the free version. I thought the plus would give me a reasonable food plan, but the selection of recipes is not practical (does not use common household ingredients) and if in the US you need a calculator to convert the measurements of grams and oven temp from Celsius. To have a buddy you have to invite your own personal friends. So, if you don’t have any that want to do fasting, you’re alone. Other apps have a community across all app users. The calendar is a day behind which throws me off, especially as certain components sync from my fit bit. But even that’s not consistent. Steps feed through, but the weight does not. What’s the point of syncing if it only partially works. In the beginning I saw “nutrition coaches”, passed on them but now I can’t find where to get one. Navigating the app for certain components is not intuitive. I tried to reach out for help, and that’s no where to be found on the app. I had to go to their website, surf around and finally stumbled upon how to contact them. Contacted them about the date syncing issue. Still no word. Save your money and only use the free version. Paying for enhancements is a crock.

I love Fastic! It has helped me stay on track and go from 157lbs to 125lbs in less than a year. It’s a good visual to be able to see how far you have come in a day and when you enter ketosis. My only disappointment is that somehow I lost all my info and had to start over so it looks like I haven’t been at this long. Otherwise this app has been a silent support to not say “no you CANT have that cake!” To “You just entered ketosis, if you wait you can still have the cake and not ruin your progress for the day”. I first read the book Feast, Fast Repeat by Gin Stephens. It’s amazing the science that backs this type of lifestyle. Being at this for months now, I actually have more energy and am in better spirits if I start the day out right. If I start out with sugar and creamer in my coffee and a donut for breakfast, I feel sluggish and sad for the majority of the day. This is not only physically healing but a mental recovery each new day.

Wonderful app but a few minor things would’ve be helpful
So far I’ve been doing fasting for a month, I’ve lost 8 lbs and I haven’t seen weight loss like that since I was in my 20s and working out every day. I have not needed to work out and I’ve been drinking more water. The insights are so helpful and makes you feel like you are really accomplishing something and hitting goals. The down side is that you have to track water by cups and most people use a water bottle so it would be nice to track in ounces. Also the areas where reports are, tend to be hard to read and the profess can we hard to tell some weeks. One last note is that I have always been someone who struggled to stop eating once I started during the day. This app has helped to empower me to eat only during my window and the results spur me on to continue every day. I really like that I can change my fasting method each day as there are days that I need to go to events and eat before 1 PM. Overall wonderful app!

So far so awesome!
I got this app a few days ago and am already feeling incredible. I am on a streak with intermittent fasting and although I don’t see too many physical changes yet (obviously lol still early), I feel so good mentally. I am already starting to notice my energy level increase, appetite for snacking decrease, etc. This app is super motivating and easy to use! The fasting tracker is really awesome because it tells you what your body is doing on a molecular level at certain points during fasting. It’s so cool to know what your body is doing rather than just twiddling your thumbs waiting for the fast to end. It takes 4 weeks to notice change on yourself and 8 weeks for family and friends to notice change. Use this app correctly and you will see results. In conjunction with good diet and exercise, intermittent fasting will put a torch to that stubborn fat that won’t seem to budge. 10/10 recommend!

Great fasting app
My wife and I have searched for a couple apps for fasting. We found Fastic and it has everything we want in the app. We like that it can keep track of your water intake, food, intake, and other things. What I really like about the app is that it gives you very positive reminders. Also, there is tons of information in the app as to how far along in your fasting process you are and what it is doing for your body. You can touch the app in the section you’re at during your fasting. And it will tell you what is going on whether there is fat, burning ketones, ketosis and other things. Those things are very helpful and encouraging. I highly recommend this app. If you are starting a fasting program all the information is editable. If you forget to start your fast, no worries you can just edit the timer as to when you started and the same for when you finished. Very nice app. Kevin.

Easy sustainable weight lose (self control needed)
I have been doing the fasting diet first time almost two weeks ago. I was drawn to this cause I needed to lose weight. I had gained quite a bit of weight due to covid-19. I had realized I had topped my highest weight yet at 387lbs. I have lost just under two week at (two days left of second week) I have lost 13lbs. I’m a 36 year old male 6’5” with back issues and I’m able to cut back on sugar I’m able to add greens and vegetables. I lowered my walk to the lowest but try to push past that when I can I don’t walk ever day but I try to reach my goal 2-3 times a week and I do my best to drink the water recommended. If you can deal with not eating while you sleep and drink water and walk when you can you will see results fast! At my current weight loss and weekly progress I should reach my weight goal of 225 by the first week of January! Please help your self be healthy!

I’ve found success with this app!
I have tried 16:8 Intermittent fasting on my own before and even though the concept is so easy, I totally failed. And this is coming from someone who was a pretty thoughtful and healthy eater, and then toddlers happened. I found it difficult to keep an eye on my fasting/eating windows on my own bc I also was juggling two other schedules. But this app changed that completely. So easy, it’s really positive and motivating (you never feel defeated which I think is such an important aspect of reaching a goal), there’s so much more you can utilize out of it as far as additional habits, and you can go back and edit your times bc sometimes life takes us away from our phones but we still met our goals. I’ve lost weight, I drink wayyyyyy more water, and feel really good and it’s 100% bc of this app. PS I bought another app a week before this one and so glad I decided to ditch that one for this one!

I don’t understand the hype
I’m so incredibly disappointed. I wish I hadn’t wasted 80$ on a full year membership. There is zero actual help on how to make the app function properly. The help chat is AI, responses do not actually help. The help center never responds. The food log DOES NOT WORK. Supposedly it helps you fill in calories and info. No, it DOESN’T. I have to fill out ALL the info myself every time. (It doesn’t even keep info I’ve logged multiple times) OR you can take a pictures of your emails which is wildly inaccurate EVERY TIME. Chicken patty it assumes it’s pork sausage. Cauliflower mash? Nope that must be mashed potato’s. It’s Infuriating. The nutritional info it “guesses” from each photo is also far off. Calories way lower then what they are. Fat too high. Etc. It doesn’t even offer a simple barcode scanner for packaged foods. How simple is that? Nope. Ugh I hate it so so so much. Why this is consider “the best” and has won so many awards is beyond me. I cannot find any help online. And again no one responds to sent emails. Personally I say only try the free one if you’re really interested. And if you somehow magically figure it out fill me in please!!!

Basically an accountability aid and a spoon-feed textbook, in a good way
I like that the user has to go in and press “start” and “finish” for fasting periods. Just that little manual confirmation helps add so much weight to the commitment. Turns out, it’s easy to not eat potato chips at 10pm after pushing a button saying I won’t. So this cognitive model works well for me. I also like that there is a daily weight tracker function, as well as little lessons which explain the science behind fasting-driven metabolism in an easy-to-understand way. This app doesn’t have too many features, but most of them are very practical and helpful. My one suggestion is breaking daily goals down even more, like “did you eat wholesome for lunch today” or “list three occasions where someone helped you today” or “How many times did you say thank you?” Getting into that positive mindset can benefit from smaller but more frequent reinforcement.

It’s Helping
I’ve used this app for about a month now and lost 10 pounds so far. It tracks your fasting windows and allows you to adjust/edit the times so you don’t feel like you failed if you are off by an hour or so. I do not use the plus plan because I don’t like paying for apps; but this app has been very useful in helping me track my eating and fasting windows. Not only is it encouraging with their tips, the UI seems more relaxing and positive compared to the other calorie count apps where it is loaded with ads and tempting photos of food. Also, the latest update where you get to see what your body is doing during the fasting milestones has been a great addition. It keeps me from binge eating because it reminds me of how my body is working to help me lose weight. I appreciate this app’s graciousness for those who are using it for free and I will continue losing weight at my own pace. Again, there is no pressure and you get to document how you feel after every fasting period.

Not that great
There needs to be more up front information on how to structure diet and how to determine which fasting regimen is right for any individual. Also, i’ll have read other places that if one sticks with one regimen for a long period of time, the body adapts, which makes sense. The primary things the app does is 1) tells you to drink water, 2) gives notification reminders when to start and stop your fast (that you have to decide on your own which one you should choose, with not much information), 3) lets you record you weight every day. There are little daily reading nuggets, which are interesting and some are helpful, but I find much of the information would be helpful up front. Also, the diet “coach” or whatever it’s called is not a live person —— it’s just a list of recipes and recommended foods that you can scroll through. I have some very simple, basic questions like, is it ok to use stevia? I like the tiniest bit in my morning coffee. There’s no live support to answer a simple question, let alone a more complex one. My doctor has recommended “Zero Fasting” app. Will try that.

Fairly Easy
I just started this program and am hopeful for results. I’ve lost four pounds in five days, but I’m guessing that’s water. I do try to rehydrate. Anyway, the Fastic app is pretty straightforward and easy to use for the most part, but some features are confusing. I don’t understand the idea behind the flames and the “freezies” or “coolies” or whatever they’re called, for example. Also, I want to stop sugar, but I live with my boyfriend and his son and grandchildren. The son brings home sugar for the boys all the time, so I can’t remove it from my home, so I can’t progress in the app. I suppose I can lie. Also, since the little ones are so all consuming of my time and energy, I keep forgetting to use the app to record start and stop times and water consumption, though I am fasting and drinking water. It took a little bit to find out how to edit my weekend fasts, but I figured it out eventually. Unfortunately, I can’t add water consumption.

Love this app
If you want an app you don’t have to pay for this one isn’t for you unless you want the most basic option. But in my personal opinion paying for this app is so worth it! I just had my baby and I want to lose all this extra weight and eating salads and healthy foods just hasn’t worked for me. I tried fasting before and it really helped, until I got sick of salads and gave up. But this app shows you healthy foods to eat that you won’t hate i love the recipes and they have vegan, vegetarian, lactose intolerant, gluten free and meatless options so if you can’t have certain foods they will acomidate that. There are three levels and the more I tense the level the longer you fast for so if you’re not comfortable fasting for 20 hours and only eating for 4 of them start off slow and you can get more intense the more comfortable you are with fasting. I recommend this to anyone that wants to lose weight!

I love it but there are some minor problems
I started my bad eating a long time ago 10 years old to be exact. I didn’t eat anything other than junk. I think this app should be open for younger children who’s parents are concerned with their health. I wasn’t even able to get started because according to this app I was under weight. I am aware, but it’s difficult for most people to see doctors depending on where they live, I think this app should help me gain more weight so I’m not as underweight. That’s like giving birth at a doctor’s office but then them telling me since I wasn’t eating enough I can’t have a baby. I do love this app however, those were the only 2 serious problems I had with it. That I believe should be changed. My 13 year old niece told me about this since I was going on a diet, and she wanted to do it too but for some reason, even though on the app it states it’s for 12+ she was too young to join.

Best thing since sliced pie
I’ve been using this app since Monday and I’ve already drop one pants size. I’ve been looking for something like this for a while I paid for a year in advance I believe this app is going to be life changing. I had been juicing since 2010 and I’ve lost some serious weight but once I stop juicing I put the weight back on. This app holds me accountable so I’m determined to finish my daily fast, complete my steps, and drink at least 12 cups of water a day. My goal is to lost about 70lbs. However I feel like this will be different because I’m going to stay on this program. This takes the place of making up excuses this app keeps you focused on what you should be doing all the time seven day a week.I love this app thank you Fastic you change my life I’m definitely a believer that this app works and I can wait to see where I am in a year.

It’s what works for me
I’ll start by saying what everyone says when they find something that works for them…”I have tried lots of way to lose weight” which is somewhat true. I did Weight Watchers off and on for years, I did Noom, I even tried a different fasting app, Zero . Even the other fasting app didn’t grab me like this app did. I love the articles, the step by step of what is going on in your body, and encouragement. The BEST thing I have discovered with fasting other than weight loss, is something g that no other weight loss program has done. Fasting actually makes me FEEL better. I have finally given over to the fact that it is indeed the fasting that helps my body, especially my joints feel better. The deeper the dive I did into the fasting the more I realized I somehow missed the inflammation piece and how fasting helps calm that down.

Why is this rated so highly?
I have used this app periodically for a couple years. It is extremely difficult to use if you need to change your fasting time, unless you are able to do it as it’s happening. For ex: I began fasting yesterday at 8:45am, and I’m on the 23:1 schedule. That means I should have ended my fast at 7:45am this morning. However, I slept a bit late, then became busy with several things, plus I did not feel hungry in the least (I drink tons of water) so I waited until 6pm to eat. Trying to fix this in the app is a nightmare, and it ends up not awarding stars or points or whatever. Not very intuitive!! And, no matter how many times I try resetting my password and syncing and deleting and reinstalling, my ipad Fastic does not allign with my iphone Fastic. Really frustrating. Also not sure why you can’t alter the fasting schedule to personalize. Why don’t you allow more than 23 hours of fasting at a time? It’s certainly not healthy to do all the time, but it should at least have the option.

Simple easy-to-use, great articles
I’m trying this and the Simple fasting app. This is easier to use and more intuitive. The articles are also more interesting and keep me motivated. I like that to can log how I feel. I tend to use this open field to note my meals as well. Wish: I wish there was a feature that sent me a notification to end my fast and gave me a button to click to end it. Because after 16-18 hrs, I’m just going to start eating. Then, a notification to start fasting, same deal. If this can be achieved, it’s be a game changer. Otherwise, it’s not hard to edit my fasts to reflect what I did. Though see the bug I noticed. Issue/Bug: Data graph does not show corrected fasting times though when you tap through it shows updated info. What it does show is an overstatement of my fast (22hrs vs 17 when I forgot to stop the fasting tracker). Again, much easier to use than the Simple app, which forces me to log my food and doesn’t make it easy to do so. Fastic makes it easier to make this a habit and be successful, without stressing me out. The just-right amount of graphs keep me motivated without triggering my perfectionist tendencies. Loving this. I’ve been tempted to skip a day of fasting but I want to hit that 21 day goal! And I will. Been using this for 1.5 - 2 weeks and dropped about 3 lbs. Steady and healthy and I eat very well. Thanks!

Simple and effective
I struggle with eating whenever I feel like and overeating. I’m an above average size fellow frame wise at 6”1 and have always teetered between being in and out of shape. Sweet are a love I’m sure many of us share. I also smoke pot which give me heavy cravings of any kind of food. I used to be able to fast for several days at a time in my 20s when I was at peak performance. I’ve struggled in my 30s to maintain this level of focus. This little app has given me a goal and a schedule to follow. So far it’s only been 3 days but I’ve hit 16 + hour fasts each day in a row and I feel great. I haven’t ate before I sleep at night during this streak and that’s always been key for me personally. So for me, the app has a simple interface and is educational enough for me to feel like I see why I’m doing what I’m doing. It works for me try it. So far I feel better. I hope you do as well..🥰

Pushy sales
App itself is neat. Has potential. Where they lost points is how pushy they are to try and get you to buy the plus version. They give you access to features like water and meal logging, then without warning take those away so when you click on their reminder to log your water intake, you’re forced into the “buy now” page. I get push notifications constantly telling me “you forgot something in your cart” while I DO NOT HAVE A CART. It’s irritating. I thought about purchasing the plus, but then they only give you the option to pay via apple store/apple pay. I emailed the customer service asking if Paypal is a possibility (I can’t find it on their website that’s equally confusing), and just got a auto generated response to check in the FAQ section for my question. In a nutshell, the app has potential, but the annoying sales pushing and lack of payment methods and customer service are unfortunately a dealbreaker.
