TRACK 500+ SYMPTOMS AND HEALTH CONDITIONS
From hunger, mood, stress, anxiety, allergies, dry skin, back pain, headaches, migraines, canker sores, bleeding gums, hair loss to triglycerides, cholesterol, blood glucose levels and medications… you can even create a custom tracker!
MONITOR 30+ NUTRIENTS
We have a huge database of 500,000+ foods and supplements, including top restaurants, brands and specialty items, with the most complete nutrition information. Monitor not only calories, fat, carbs, protein, calcium, sodium, iron, vitamins A and C, but also glycemic index and load, omega-6:omega-3 ratio, potassium, magnesium, zinc, niacin, lycopene and vitamins B12, D and more.
A main highlight, your daily nutrition score rates your diet quality. A higher score means a healthier diet, a lower score, a less healthy one. The DASH diet, Mediterranean diet, and others that align with USDA recommendations normally score between 90 and 100. Extreme diets or those comprised largely of junk food generally score lower.
This unique feature gives you a graphic view of your overall nutrition. Charts and trends show you which foods contribute most to your vitamin and mineral intake, and which cause too much sodium and added sugar. Are you deficient in iron or omega-3? Do you get the right amount of vitamin A? Get tips on how to improve and top food recommendations.
A powerful discovery function. Get 7- or 30-day trends for any condition, nutrient or activity to see patterns and find correlations. Does vitamin C help your gums stop bleeding? Omega-3 help your allergies? Reducing salt lower your blood pressure?
Enter foods using a barcode scanner, quick-pick menus, favorite foods and “copy from yesterday.”
You can create any food using your personal recipe. Select ingredients from categories for sandwiches, salads, smoothies, tacos, omelets, burritos, wraps, pizza and pasta dishes. You can also add cooking methods.
NUTRITION TIPS AND TOP FOODS
Get nutrition tips on your nutrition cards. If you have too much sodium, get a warning; if you don't get enough calcium, get ideas for calcium-rich foods with colorful photos!
A bonus feature, makes tracking easier with time-tagged photos and text notes.
