Review: Dr. Greger's Daily Dozen App
Have you heard of Dr. Michael Greger? He is the author of the book How Not To Die. I highly recommend it. It is a comprehensive look at this world of eating and health. Did you know that we can reverse so many of our chronic illnesses through what we eat. That's what he talks about in this book. So go get it... And also, visit his website NutritionFacts.org -- filled with so much information that will make your plant-based journey easier.
Okay... enough about the book I'll give you a full review of that at a later date. Today, I want to tell you about the Dr. Greger's Daily Dozen app. It's free. It's out for both ISO and for Android. And it has a high rating of 4.9 of 5 after 100,000 downloads.
First of all, I'm using it and I love it. The app consists (see photo on the left below) of the 12 food categories that should be included daily in our plant-based life to ensure optimum health. It's a great app for keeping track of our of each category. This photo shows the front page of the app. It has all twelve of the daily dozen categories listed and the number of servings you should have. Throughout the day, you merely open the app on your phone and click off what you are eating, serving-by-serving or your exercise. Easy-peasy, and so motivating to see those boxes fill up each day.
If you want to know what a serving size is or what items are under each category, you merely click on the i next to the category and it will take you to a page such as the one above on the right with that information.
Slick, right? At the end of the day, you know exactly what you've eaten in each category and which categories you missed. You may not get to all of them every day, but you'll know which ones to put a little more emphasis on the following day. to keep yourself healthy.
What do I think of the app. I love it. It not only helps me stay on track, using it gives me a feeling of comfort knowing that I'm covering all the bases.
Please take a look at this video. In a mere 8 minutes, you'll learn all about what to eat each day and how to use the app to help you. Let me know what you think in the comments section.
And, thanks to Dr. Greger and NutritionFacts.org for all the research they do and for granting me permission to use their photos.
