It is great for tracking how you eat
So far I’ve had a very good experience with Kurbo!Ive only used it for abut 2 weeks and as a eleven year old it really has helped me eat better and gain confidence!10/10
This app is horrible it barley has the food that u eat it notifies u like ever minute and it gets annoying the apps buggy worst app to exist
ok all, it’s time for me to write a review i’m 14 now, i used this app when i was 9-11 i believe. i was a perfectly normal child. average weight, slightly tall, but very athletic. this caused my bmi to be in the “overweight “ or borderline overweight category. looking back on it now, i was a highly anxious, extremely troubled kid. i had crippling body dysmorphia, severe anxiety, and later went on to develop depression, self harm behaviors, and an eating disorder. when i found out about this app when i was 8 or 9, i was already engaging in eating disorder behaviors (restricting and purging at the time). i was so intensely anxious about being considered overweight (thanks to all of the percentile charts and bmi charts for kids) that i begged my mom to let me download the app and pay for a subscription. my mom at the time had no idea i was already doing behaviors or that i was already so anxious, as i was 8 years old, so she let me download it. i used the app religiously, and i don’t remember much of it or what i talked to my “coach” about. i do remember it definitely impacted my perception of food, body image, and what foods were okay for me to eat. the “red food, yellow food, green food” system was probably the most harmful part for me. already coming into it with terrible body image and being highly anxious, someone who is older than you who you look up to telling you that these foods you need to eat more, these foods you need to eat less is a recipe for disaster. even if your child is not anxious or does not struggle with body image, you’re rolling a dice and hoping this won’t impact them in the same way it did me. the other thing that most bothers me with it is the “coaches”. again, i was 9 when i used this app so i don’t remember much. my coach was a woman who i remember was really nice, and probably helped me some with body image when we had our video sessions. just because i got lucky with my coach doesn’t mean everyone did. i specifically remember one of the options for traits in a coach being “tough love”. i can’t imagine how much harm it would have caused me to literally have someone telling me straight up i needed to lose weight and eat healthy at 9 years old. i know some may think that i’m saying that this app causes eating disorders. that’s not true. but i’m not saying this app doesn’t cause eating disorders either. there are many causes and roots of eds and all mental illness, and they are very complex. however, for me this app for sure played a role in the development of my eating disorder.
I am a teenage cheerleader who has struggled with staying fit, this app has helped me so much, but I do have one note that I would like to be improved upon. I’d like it off the app let you scan the barcodes on food instead of manually typing it all in
I have been trying to use this app for 2 hours and cannot get anywhere. It keeps not loading or giving an error message. I am using this because it was meant to be a benefit from work. I will be providing feedback to our benefits team that this is unacceptable.
I love your app it is the best but when you press your profile and edit something it makes you log in over again and it get really frustrating sometimes so yeah but besides that it is great.
Easy to add your task
Thank you for everything and thanks for the app it’s really good!.
Absolutely disgusted by this. We are teaching children to diet at such a young age, how harmful. Shaming your children for eating certain foods or being a certain size does not stop them from gaining weight. It leads to a horrendous relationship with food which can lead to eating disorders. Teach your children to be in tune with their hunger cues instead of teaching them thin is good and certain foods are bad. I will never use WW again knowing they’re profiting off of children’s insecurities and teaching parents it’s okay to diet their children and shame them into a poor relationship with food in the future. So disgusted lol.
