Eat, Chew, Rest is a simple free app that could still prove to be very helpful to users wishing to be mindful of their eating habits. Going off the recommendation of health experts that eating food slowly increases gylcemic response and help in losing weight, the app helps users to eat their meal slowly by dividing the meal into timed sections: Eat (where the food is appreciated), Chew (where the food is savored, and well, chewed) and Rest (where it is reflected on before the next bite). The app's developer cites Tim Ferriss as an inspiration for the app. It's a little silly, but it could work.
