Food Value Calculator

food value_pic1

THE DESCRIPTION:
“Food Value Calculator” allows you to calculate a numerical “value” for your food by entering data.

THE GOOD:
Enter the calories, fat and fiber content in your food to get a figure that represents its value. It’s easy to enter the data and you can get a result very quickly.

THE BAD:
You won’t find any database of nutritional information, so you must be prepared with the specific data before you use the application. There is no background information or scale to contextualize the number you receive. The simple calculator also does not account for serving size, which renders your results even more arbitrary. You just get a number.

THE BOTTOM LINE:
The calculator just uses your numbers to produce another number with no explanation on the process or perspective for your result. This very simple application is also useless; don’t waste your time. Check out “LoseIt!” to focus on weight loss or “iWatchr” to use a point system for weight loss.
