What does the 80% rule mean?
The by our users so-called 80% method means to eat only 80% of the calculated daily requirement. The advantage of this method is that you are eating enough, have had enough and you are still lower than your daily requirement. Many of our users lose weight in a healthy way by this method because they do not lose radical weight. Your daily requirement is automatically calculated. When you add items in your food diary, you will see, what percentage you already have eaten the day.
