Welcome to MyHabeats
Meet Lina & Lino!
Wellbeing easier than ever!
Feed and Feel!
MyHabeats is a smartphone application helping people adopt healthy eating behaviors. We do provide an evidence-based alternative, with a psychological model.
The world we live in promotes obesity, this is plain and simple. A lot of scientific research has shown this to be the case. Tasty, unhealthy food is inexpensive, and easy to get. Sugar and fat alters the brain chemistry in a way that makes you want more sugar and fat. If you refrain from eating those foods later you will find them to be even tastier. The world is now designed to promote steady weight gain.
There are around 25,000 apps targeting wellness and weight and fitness management, in the form of fitness trackers, diet & nutrition and lifestyle coaching. We managed as a scientific and technology community to outsource our most important human sensors: ears and eyes to a variety of sensors available in the market. And yet, depression, obesity and diabetes are growing at rates that have been characterized as epidemics! We are now more than ever, more anxious, more stressed and unhappy.
We, at MyHabeats are a team of highly motivated people, scientists with different and complementary backgrounds, passionate about entrepreneurial therapy. For us, healthy living and emotional wellbeing go together. This has been our goal from the beginning, our focus during app development and testing and basically the very success of MyHabeats so far.
We believe that
healthcare is a people business in need of technology, not a technology business in need of people.
Healthcare and wellbeing
It is not only about genetics, but also about behaviors. Feelings and emotions are analog, technology is digital. We long to show the world what digital empathy is about: the ability to actively listen and share analog feelings and digital signals asynchronously; to provide continuity, connectedness, empowerment and engagement to create a sense of being valued and included when using technology.
We see that the future belongs to services and products that focus both on health and happiness, with these values being in the core of their solutions.
A few clicks and wellbeing has never been closer!

This is what our alpha version users have to say about our app!
The “Athens Startup Business Incubator” – THEA project is one of the most important initiatives undertaken by the ACCI and aims at promoting the socioeconomic reconstruction of the metropolitan City of Athens, since the provision of support to new entrepreneurs is the basis for the revival of business activity.
Located in Athens downtown, this initiative is developed by the Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry and is part of “The Athens Project”, which is funded by the NSRF and realized by the Municipality of Athens.
Myhabeats has been hosted in THEA since June 2016, thus having the opportunity to
- access differentiated support, like the Entrepreneurial Therapy (meet the expert) seminar and the Start-Up Negotiating seminar and
attend several significant events, such as WEB SUMMIT 2016 in Lisbon, SLUSH 2016 in Helsinki, etc.
Myhabeats has participated in 3 congresses so far:
December 2016, Athens, Greece: Conference on Mental Health
September 2016, Sicily, Italy: 8th Conference of the European Association for Behavioral Analysis
November 2015, Athens, Greece : Panhellenic Conference of the Hellenic Society on Behavioral analysis
MyHabEats was one of the six start-ups hosted in THEA INCUBATOR that attended SLUSH 2016 in Helsinki.
With lots of meetings, sessions and incredible ambiance, SLUSH gave us the opportunity to eye witness the future!
Next important milestone for myhabeats:
The first randomized clinical study in bariatric patients, who have undergone bariatric surgery, will be initiated in June at the University Clinic, Bariatric department of Ippokrateion hospital in Athens, Greece.
This clinic has been awarded the centre of excellence by IFSO.
