SuperTracker on ChooseMyPlate.gov provides users with free nutrition and activity plans, food trackers, recipes, and support to make healthy eating choices. ChooseMyPlate.gov also maintains a food database called Food-A-Pedia where users can look up the nutritional information for over 8,000 types of food.
Access to Food-A-Pedia does not require a user to provide personal information in order to find out a food's nutritional information. However, a personalized daily food intake chart is a great way to track personal weight and wellness progress, and SuperTracker takes the guesswork out of understanding nutritional charts, according to ChooseMyPlate.gov .
In order to get the most out of this program, users create personalized profiles that include height, weight and general activity level, as explained on ChooseMyPlate.gov. With this information, the nutrition trackers produce accurate information tailored specifically to each user. By inputting daily physical exercise and food intake, people monitor how many calories they are consuming in each meal and also see the breakdown of carbohydrates, protein and other nutrients. Users then track their progress and make better food choices. SuperTracker also gives users the opportunity to sign up for tips from health and wellness coaches in order to stay on track and meet their health goals.
