I wanted to make this simple app to help me count and record my daily servings of Good Fat, Proteins and Fiber. Actually I have never been a dieter type person. But late last year I started getting fascinated with a bunch of books from renowned doctors who claim that we are being hoodwinked by the food industry and that in reality eating fat doesn’t make you fat! In fact intake of good fats helps you lose and maintain a healthy weight. I really fell in love with this lifestyle and started losing weight and feeling so alive. My problem was I was writing down my daily intakes and of course I kept losing my notepad (no one loses their phone right?). So I decided to solve a problem and create a little app that records and keeps track of your servings every day – plus I added some bells and whistles. Like… I wanted to share this app with some friends and family and the only way I could figure that out was to put it on the app store. So have at it and enjoy. I the FAQ section of the app I provide some interesting reading and books on the good fat concept. Also please consider leaving me some nice feedback that will help get others interested and keep me motivated to improve this app. Happy to listen to any suggestions!!
Many of us have long been told that fat makes us fat, contributes to heart disease, and generally erodes our health. Now a growing body of research is debunking our fatphobia, revealing the immense health and weight loss benefits of a high-fat diet rich in eggs, nuts, oils, avocados, and other delicious superfoods.

Recent cutting-edge research shows that human intestinal microbiota influences metabolism, appetite, energy, hormones, inflammation, and insulin resistance. Because gut microflora plays a central role in weight management, losing weight is much more than cutting calories, fat, or carbs. When the trillions of live bacteria in our digestive tract – the gut microbiome – are balanced, excess pounds melt away, and we feel revitalized.

This is a great and useful app to use to watch and maintain your weight. Has some helpful tracking sections in the app that really help me remember when to eat and a daily summary is great as well. This app is a keeper!! ERIC
At the start of 2016 I (as usual) thought about a new year’s resolution; I mean every other one I have made is more or less forgotten come March or April. But I felt there was an obvious choice. Over christmas season my son had introduced me to a no carbohydrates diet he had started – to good effect. I started doing some reading and then I saw an audio book on audibles.com called Smart Fat. This was very appealing. I had tried various diets and they are all so…well painful. What with hunger pangs and constant nagging. Smart Fats takes another angle by saying that some of the fats we have eliminated (beef) is actually not that bad for you as long as you for example buy grass fed beef. After a while I became conscious of the antibiotics and other junk that lands in our food, and really began educating myself on this stuff. So I entered 2016 with a vow to cut out all carbs (ok cut out is harsh, but to drastically reduce to one or two beers per week; nothing else).
For years, experts have told us that eating fat is bad. But by banning fat from our diets, we’ve deprived ourselves of considerable health benefits – and have actually sabotaged our own efforts to lose weight. – Smart Fat
The idea behind this app is very simple. I want to easily record what I am eating on a daily basis, and measure these against targets I can set myself. Basically we break foods into 3 categories; Good Fats, Proteins and Fiber. Next we define the portion sizes of 1 serving. Everything is measured in servings. Its really easy to figure out how much in a serving because we use easy to visualize objects like a pack of cards.
So for example it’s suggested to eat 5 servings of Good Fats; 5 servings of Protein and 10 servings of Fiber. Set this as your goals and just begin recording after each meal or at the end of each day (um before midnight please).
Recording is easy just go into a category like protein and scroll to the food you have consumed, then select the number of servings and click ADD. The app will keep track of the number of servings, the number of grams and the goals.
Another simple way to add a food is to use the search, just type in the food and if it’s in our database you can easily add the number of servings.
Other places to look around are the graphs and report which shows 30 days of your consumption against targets.
Also take a look at Multivitamins which tracks your intake of vitamins on a daily basis.
Bad Fats and Neutral fats don’t do any tracking but they are good ways to see what foods are in there. We don’t want to be total Debbie downers!
To keep us in good health, our gut relies on maintaining a symbiotic relationship with trillions of microorganisms that live in our digestive tract. When our digestive system is out of whack, serious health problems can manifest, and our intestinal walls can develop microscopic holes, allowing undigested food particles, bacteria, and toxins to seep into the bloodstream. This condition is known as leaky gut syndrome.
