Jesting aside, Meal Snap is a creative new iPhone app that allows you to snap a photo of the meal that you are about to ingest and in turn, you are provided with a report that outlines not only what is in the meal, but the calories that will be consumed as well.
Functions and Functionality:
Meal Snap is the type of iPhone app we adore. It is as creative as it is functional, and it provides a value to the end user that cannot be ignored. With Meal Snap you are encouraged to snap a photo of your daily meals and let the food tracking functionality commence! Meal Snap automatically assesses the nutritional elements of the mean and provides you with the details, putting you in control of your daily calorie intake.
Meal App Keeps Score You Lose Weight:
One feature that heightens the value of this app, essentially turns knowledge into a viable means of managing your health and weight, is the ability to track your meals. With each photo that you snap you may add a comment and/or categorize the food into meals such as breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Thereafter you can tally the number of calories consumed each day. Additionally, the Meal Snap iPhone app provides you with an ability to browse back through your meals, meal-by-meal, day-by-day, to truly assess your eating habits, assuming you have the guts (literally) to take a candid look.
Meal Snap is moderately priced at $2.99. However, for the cost of an eclair you can now track, assess, and manage your diet, and likely initiate dietary changes that could greatly benefit your overall health. From a price to value ratio, this ranks very high. Admittedly, I may skip an entry or two to fit in a cookie snack, especially if I plan to post my tracked meals on Facebook or Twitter, and thus, the results will be as accurate as you are in logging them.
