Food Calc launches mobile app for Android
Food Calc has introduced EveryoneEat!, a mobile application for Android and the iPhone to help people with chronic diseases make healthy food choices while dining out.
The users enter the key information including gender, age, weight, height and age, followed by what chronic diseases and dietary restrictions they have. As per the features, a dietary guideline is generated for user based on FoodCalc’s collaboration with major U.S. health associations like the National Kidney Foundation, the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute, and the American Diabetes Association.
The user can get more customized experience by granting their dietitian access to their EveryoneEat! Account. By entering their practioner’s email and name, FoodCalc locates the registered dietitian who can then log into that user’s account to override or set new guidelines.
The users who do not have a dietitian can also access advice from one of the app’s 50 registered dietitians allowing them to provide customized settings.
Ken Marshall, Company’s co-founder and CEO Ken Marshall said, “There are existing databases with heavy market share using apps such as CalorieKing and FatSecret.” Mr. Marshall also said, “They are specifically targeting people with chronic diseases who need help deciding what they eat.”
EveryoneEat! Is free for all users and Marshall says they plan on generating revenue through advertising within the app.
FoodCalc provides individuals with highly tailored nutrition insight that gives them specific context about how dishes at over 18,000 restaurants relate to their specific nutrition needs.
