You are what you eat. Take control of your physical and mental health. Protein is essential for body growth, repair, and maintenance, and for a healthy immune system to protect from disease. But we don't need a huge amount. Too much is stored as fat and can result in obesity and obesity-related diseases. Deficiency results in the malnutrition associated with famine (kwashiorkor) and mental disabilities. Count, track, and chart the protein provided by foods in your diet. Use the count and organiser tools to keep a daily record and bar chart illustration of the protein in g and %RDA (Adult Daily Recommended Dietary Allowance) provided by 250 heart healthy foods, 55 popular "not heart healthy" foods, and foods you choose to add to the counter in the quantities youve eaten. This beautifully designed healthy diet tool with around 200 photos also provides essential nutritional knowledge for a heart healthy diet and 250 heart healthy foods (including heart-healthy scores). The interface is easy, quick, and intuitive to navigate, colour-coded, searchable, and zoomable using the pinch screen function. Viewable in landscape and portrait. Specially edited and designed for iPhone, iPad, and iPod screens. Compiled and edited by UK-registered medical doctor and professional medical editor Dr Lindy van den Berghe, BMedSci, BM, BS; software design by Dr Sven van den Berghe, PhD.
