A new application called The Eatery serves as a food journal and a way to monitor your eating habits. When I first downloaded the app, I was taken aback by the rating system and lack of calorie counting found with other applications. However, I find that this application truly aligns with the American Dietetics Association (ADA) motto, “ALL FOODS FIT!” On this app, no foods are demonized or stigmatized. You can simply log your intake and have your followers and the online users rate your snapped photo as either FIT or FAT.
The goal here is to promote healthy eating habits through awareness and community support and feedback. As a Registered Dietitian, I find this to be a great tool to connect with my clients and see how they are eating. Net net = a very fun, visual and social way to keep an otherwise tedious food journal!
