It is a new weight loss app that scans barcodes on food products. The iPhone calorie counter app is part of an online diet service and allows you to keep track of your diet.
To use it, you can focus on a product barcode, click to capture, then add it to the food diary which tots up your daily calorie intake. It is introduced today, Sept. 19, by UK’s NutraTech.
Tim Vryenhoef, NutraTech MD said “We wanted to make our calorie counter as simple to use as possible. You can find and add food with just a couple of clicks which means you’re more likely to keep your food diary up to date. The more accurately you keep it, the more successful your weight loss will be”.
The company says its app differs from others in the marketplace in that it has a UK food database with over 100,000 foods. Weights and servings are for UK consumers, whereas other apps use US databases.
The app shows how many calories you have left for the day on the home screen icon, without the need to open it. Weekly weigh ins can be recorded and weight loss progress is shown in a motivating graph.
Designed to be the perfect diet companion, Nutracheck’s iPhone app is for anyone trying to manage their weight. It’s simple to use and has the advantage of using a UK food database. The app is free to Nutracheck online members and has a ‘Lite’ option* for anyone wishing to try it.
To download the app, you can visit the iPhone App Store and search for ‘Nutracheck’.
It is free to members of Nutracheck.co.uk. Non-members can try the free ‘Lite’ version. For full website support, you can subscribe in-App at GBP5.99 per month.
