Healthy U

SDHTI’s Healthy U is geared towards individuals looking to either start eating healthier or intent on losing weight. The app is easy to use and informative, teaching users about the food they eat, substituting bad food for good food, and how to get around common barriers to eating well.

Tap on Nutrition Tools and learn about how the color of food can help guide you towards better eyesight, boosting your immune system, and several other health concerns that plague people today. For example, orange foods like carrots, mangoes, or oranges contain vitamins such as A or C that may help with with healing from infections. Nutrition Tools also include guides to healthy additions to your normal meals, food substitutes for when you’re eating out, and a how-to for getting around barriers such as not having the time to cook or how to make perishables last in the fridge.

Once you’re finished learning what food can do for you, tap on Create a Meal Plan. Fill out the requisite information and allow Healthy U to create a meal plan formatted to you and your goals. A drawback to this function is the lack of variety in the meals (you only get a generic one, with the portions adjusted for your height and weight), therefore it is recommended that you get friendly with the healthy additions found in Nutrition Tools to avoid eating the same thing every single day.

Ever wondered just what exactly the nutrition facts mean on the back of your cereal box? Healthy U comes with a nutrition facts guide that explains it all to you with a tap of a finger. Learn about what “total fat” means or how calories are calculated in each serving size. This can be useful when figuring out if the fat-free label really equates healthy eating.

Despite being a rather handy app for a health-conscious eater, there are some issues. Be sure to have an internet connection, because it is required when attempting to access the serving sizes function under Nutrition Tools in order to view images. The app also crashed on me three times while I was using it. It was interesting going through the functions of the app but I can only imagine the calorie-conscious or those who are simply curious about their food to enjoy using Healthy U. It is probably not worth your $2.99; I would suggest that you take that money and buy an actual book on nutrition, as that is the information that makes up the bulk of the app.
