Protein is essential for body growth, repair, and maintenance, and for a healthy immune system to protect from infection and cancer.
Protein deficiency results in malnutrition and general debility. When extreme (eg when associated with famine), it causes kwashiorkor, resulting in a swollen abdomen and legs with dermatitis, loss of teeth and hair, 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 you’ve 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.
