Eating out app calculates calories and more

Phone apps are an easy and trendy way to get all kinds of info. 

Go Meals is a free app powered by Sanofi-Aventis U.S. and Calorie King™. It allows you to add foods to your “plate” and calculates your daily calories, sodium, fiber, and fat. It also breaks down the percentage of your food intake into % carb, % protein, and % fat.  

The best function of this app is its ability to look up chain restaurant menus and their nutrition information. Under the “Restaurants” function, it detects your location and pulls up restaurants nearby based on category of food (American, Buffet, Pizza, Sandwiches, etc.). You can view menu items and nutrition information, and select items to add to your plate.  

While I don’t find the general food tracking function of this app to be as good as others that are out there, the restaurant function is a good one that I have used numerous times when out to eat to help me make better choices.

Yes, even the dietitian needs help making better choices now and then.
