MyPlate Tracker

MyPlate Tracker


The long-awaited PlateTracker is finally here. Quickly and easily track not only calories but also quantities of each food group so you can be sure you are getting a balanced diet on the go. See a list of what you eat each day along with quick-glance charts that compare actual consumption to your custom MyPlate food plan. It's easy to see, for instance, when you need to eat more vegetables and fewer empty calories.

There is so much more to healthy eating than just counting calories. Everyone knows that fruits and vegetables are much healthier than candies and sodas, yet calories alone do not capture that difference. MyPlate Tracker is about helping you achieve your goals of a healthier lifestyle by tracking what you eat, not just how much. Our methods are not backed by our own ideas, but by years of research that goes into the Dietary Guidelines for Americans published by the USDA.

This app gives users the ability to lookup their customize MyPlate food plan and provides basic information to help determine which foods belong to which group and equivalency tables. Users can enter their age, gender and physical activity level to quickly see the recommendations of Americas top nutritionists. The Daily Food Plan allows you to see how much of each food group you should be eating each day for a healthy, balanced diet.

The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, form the basis of the federal government’s nutrition education programs, federal nutrition assistance programs, and dietary advice provided by health and nutrition professionals. The Guidelines messages include:

Great concept, BUT There is no way to manually change my food requirements for the day. Everything is based on their formula. My dietician has customized values for me, so I unable to use this app to track my intake.

No point I had waited forever for the websites supertracker to have an app. How disappointing! I need to adjust the daily calories allowed so I can LOSE weight. I have created dozens of "meals" on supertracker tediously inputting every ingredient for dinners I make often. All of that is inaccessible on the app. I can't create new "meals" with the app. I can't even put in that I had a tuna sandwich for lunch and have the app record the data for that food. Everything this app does, I can do with a calculator.
