There are countless apps out there for iPhone and Android that can help with weight loss. One of the first ones I downloaded on my old Droid and on my new iPhone was Restaurant Nutrition.
Restaurant Nutrition is a free app available with full nutrition information on over 150 locations and 30,000 menu items and growing. Journal your food, map to the nearest location and more! This app has been a lifesaver over the last week. The app is created by Unified Lifestyle. The mission of the Unified Lifestyle from their Facebook page is, “to improve the human condition through a comprehensive lifestyle plan that empowers the mind, body, and spirit of individuals across the globe.” Unified Lifestyle is supported by Grant Roberts, fitness trainer to Hollywood Stars and a man dedicated to improving the health of individuals through the understanding and maintaining of proper nutrition and exercise.
Let me break down the app for you! Click on any pictures to enlarge them.
Upon loading the app, you’ll see a list of restaurants you can choose from.
For this review, I selected Chick-fil-A. Select your restaurant and you’ll see a list of the items, categorically, offered at there.
I selected the Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich. When it first loads, you’ll see a picture (if a user has uploaded one), and it’s caloric content, as well as a user rating, protein, fat, carbs, and fiber content.
Scrolling down will reveal a further breakdown of the nutrition content, as well as an option to record the item for the current day, or to put in on a previous day.
Clicking on the calendar icon at the bottom of the app will bring up the dates you have recorded items. I selected the Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich. It will give you a total for calories, fat, etc for the entire day.
You also have an option of turning off foods which may contain certain allergens.
This app is awesome! Don’t be stranded when trying to eat healthy!
