Nowadays, there are ways to collect data of almost everything we do: how much we eat, sleep and walk. To this end, there’s now an app that monitors how long you go without eating. New York-based entrepreneur and technology investor Kevin Rose developed Zero, an iOS app designed to track daily fasting and collect data for further analysis.

Geared toward Intermittent Fasting (IF) practitioners—an eating pattern that cycles between periods of eating and not—the app comes with two predefined fasts but users can define their fasting hours and days. Zero tracks when you fast as well as nighttime eating (which has been proven to be detrimental to health) by using your phone’s location and calculating local sunset time.
