Nutritionist app review: providing you with meal planning help



Maybe you have decided you want to start eating healthier or just eating more of a variety of dishes and foods. Making this goal is one thing but then coming up with those meals is a whole other task. The Nutritionist app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone to help you create personalized meal plans that help you accomplish all your nutrition and lifestyle requirements. This app doesn’t just give you a generic one-size-fits-all approach to meals rather it takes into account your personal needs, requirements, and goals.

The app has recently been updated so it now supports iOS 7 and there were a number of bug fixes made. It has 3.5 out of five stars from customers who in general seem pretty happy with the offering. There are a couple minor issues here and there but other than that users find it simple, helpful, and fun to use.

Getting Yourself Started

This app allows you to create your own customizable meal plan and use the food items found in the database. The database contains more than 800,000 food items and is available offline. You can also save your own food items that may not be in the database. As you eat and perform various activities through the day the app automatically adjusts itself and the meal plan so you stay on track. For instance if you end up going out for lunch and over-indulging shall we say, the app will re-adjust for the rest of the day so you still meet your targets and don’t exceed them.

There are plenty of other cool features here too such as the ability to set reminder alarms, jot down thoughts and other items in the "notes" section, and view charts/graphs of your personal information. There is also a recommendations list that gives you a list of healthy food suggestions along with their portion size to match your meal plan.
