For many, the New Year marks the time to embark on a healthier lifestyle using a combination of diet and exercise.

The information is stored in a database with the option to share publicly with others or not. Activities are listed and the app provides tips and a daily calorie consumption budget.

This app examines the barcodes for hidden or overlooked ingredients such as excessive sugar, sodium, preservatives, fat or artificial colors.
