SuperTracker Is Here

Happy New Year!  Do you have any resolutions for the new year?  If you, like many others, would like to improve your diet or get more exercise, a new online tool may be of interest to you!  You are probably aware that the the USDA introduced MyPlate last year to replace the old food guide pyramid.  Now they have developed a new website to go along with the new plate design.  This website is a lot of fun, and best of all it is free!   The new SuperTracker website allows users to:
  • Track the foods they eat and track their daily physical activity.
  • Get personalized recommendations for what and how much to eat, and how much physical activity they should aim for daily.
  • Customize features such as setting goals, virtual coaching, and weight tracking.
  • Get reports of their progress over time.
There is even a "Food-a-Pedia" that lets users compare the nutrients in two foods which is pretty neat. 

You can even support your family and friends by adding their individual profiles.  Check out the website and see what you think!
