Best of the Food Apps: GoMeals

By Allison Mars, Dietetics Student, Sargent College

This week on Best of the Food Apps we discuss “Go Meals”. Although not on the gomeals-11-2original food app list, one of our dietitians Laura Judd recommended it.

Go Meals lets you keep track of your food intake in a 30 day log. You can search various foods and even restaurant items then add them to “My Plate”. This plate totals up everything you’ve eaten for the day and lists the total calories consumed. Go Meals then breaks down what percentages of your calories were carbs, proteins, and fats based on the items you entered. It also lists how much sodium, fiber, total fat and saturated fat you’ve eaten. When you select a food item, it gives you the nutrition facts based on a serving size, which is listed clearly at the top of the page. For restaurant foods, a serving size is “One order”.  Searching for foods can get a little tricky, but Go Meals has many different categories and sub-categories to help you refine your search.

Overall, Go Meals is a useful app if you are on a specific diet where you need to monitor your calories, sodium intake, or otherwise. It is also nice to be able to see the nutrition facts for restaurant items which often aren’t available.
