Dr. Greger's Daily Dozen
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Keep track of the foods that Dr. Greger recommends in his new book How Not to Die.
In the years of research required to create the more than a thousand evidence-based videos on NutritionFacts.org, Michael Greger, MD, FACLM, has arrived at a list of what he considers the most important foods to include in a healthy daily diet. Yes, greens are good for you, but how much should we try to eat each day? Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen details the healthiest foods and how many servings of each we should try to check off every day. He explains his rationale in his book How Not to Die (http://NutritionFacts.org/book). All his proceeds from his books, DVDs, and speaking engagements is all donated to charity.
NutritionFacts.org is a non-commercial, nonprofit, science-based public service provided by Dr. Greger, providing free daily updates on the latest in nutrition research via bite-sized videos. He has nearly a thousand videos on every aspect of healthy eating, with new videos and articles uploaded every day. Like this app, everything on the website is both free of ads and free of charge.
This app was developed thanks to the volunteer efforts of Allan Portera of DigitalBoro.com.
Amazing New App!
This app is the perfect tool for living a whole foods plant-based plantpure life! Whether you are a newcomer to this lifestyle or a veteran veggie lover this app is ideal. Very easy and simple to use, without any unneccessary gimmicks, it is a great way to keep track of adequate intake of the components of a healthy diet and fitness routine. While having an accountability app is so useful, I have always given up on them after no time at all because they took up too much time to use. And I have no time to spare fiddling around every time I want to eat something! This takes literally 2 seconds to use making it so convenient. Also the recommended foods and activities by Dr. Greger are fantastic! What a perfect cheat-sheet while grocery shopping, or even planning to get in some exercise! Love this and have always wished there were something like it but there was no such app...UNTIL NOW!
Vegetarian turned plant-based!
I'm 23 and have been a vegetarian since age 10. However, given that I was the only vegetarian in my family, it was difficult to not rely on dairy (particularly cheese) as my dietary crutch. Now that I'm on my own and ready to take full responsibility for my health, I've discovered the plant-based diet movement and absolutely love it. It just makes so much sense for a long, happy, healthy life. After reading Dr. Greger's book, I'm going to avoid dairy and eggs and up my intake of beans, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. This app helps me reach my nutritional goals, and I'm glad Dr. Greger isn't afraid to tell it straight! With the state of our country's health, someone needs to!
Greens check, berries check, beans check!
Thank you for making this awesome tool available! I love tracking my food throughout the day and seeing where I'm lacking in my diet. I also like that it tells you how big your serving sizes should be.
I gave it 4 stars because I wish you could track your food for the whole week instead of starting over each day and not saving your previous days. It would be helpful to see where you improve!
Second I wish it had half servings as well because sometimes I spread my serving size over a couple meals.
