Description

In 2010 a local drug store blood pressure test indicated high readings. My doctor prescribed the DASH Diet. Within 2 weeks my blood pressure had dropped to normal.

The DASH Diet works, however, maintaining the DASH eating plan as a lifestyle can get detailed. For example, I needed a spreadsheet just to keep track of my food servings. Then there where other issues such as the application of DASH to my personal caloric needs, figuring out the serving size maze, not to mention keeping tabs on the most important nutrients like sodium and fat that impact my blood pressure on a daily basis, and much more.

So I developed MyDASHDiet so that DASH Diet users have a convenient tool to help them manage their DASH Diet eating plan effectively and conveniently. With MyDASHDiet you can:

- Apply the DASH Diet using your own specific caloric profile (All data remains private on your iPhone)

- Set your own Sodium Reduction strategy to achieve maximum blood pressure reduction benefit

- Track all your daily recommended DASH servings and keep a history of your food intake

- Utilize the simple "Quick Add" feature to add multiple servings for on-the-go tracking without entering new food

- View a daily summary of your consumed nutrition to help guide future food choices

- Monitor nutrients important to the DASH diet such as sodium and fat

- Utilize a Default Servings Library to add recommended servings for the most common foods, with a realistic nutrition facts label

- Create and manage your own library of food Servings

- Quickly modify entries for reduced or oversized servings

- Utilize resources that provide links to online nutrition lookups tools. (requires Internet)

- Track and record blood pressure readings to gauge your progress

- Enjoy the built in DASH Diet Reference to learn all about effective DASH Diet eating

- Enjoy a Quick Start guide and Video Tutorials on the 'www.freshobject.com/mydashdiet' support site

    Does need work..

    Aside from what everyone is saying below.. You can delete your entries. Swipe your finger across over the item that was entered incorrectly and a delete button will show up.

    Otherwise, I'm finding it very difficult to add foods that are not listed in the already stored database. For example, If I order a meal at a restaurant and I need to add it on the app, it is very difficult to know the nutrition information of each item on the plate. The amount of food items that are already "stored" in the app are very vague and uniform. Not all brands and food have the same nutrition information. Unless you physically have the box of food that you're eating from with the nutritional fact information on the outside staring you in the face then it is easy to input that information: otherwise it's extremely difficult and frustrating at times that you can't efficiently add everything you want to in the app...

    Just some considerations I hope you app makers can revise! Otherwise I think its a great app with a great purpose, just needs fine tuning!!!
