If it’s time to get serious about what you put into your body, consider the Prep Pad from The Orange Chef Co. The Prep Pad is a smart food scale that pairs with your iPad and the Countertop iOS app to show the nutritional breakdown of food in a simple, easy to understand way. The video I’ve linked to above does a a much better way of explaining and showing how it works, so be sure to hit play.
The features of the Prep Pad that are useful for diet management include the ability to:
- Set up a personalized nutritional goal profile based on physical characteristics, activity levels and dietary needs.
- See a real-time breakdown of the caloric intake, macro- and micro-nutrients, minerals and vitamins by food item and entire meal with weight accurate to the gram. Track nutritional intake on a daily and weekly basis.
- Confidently know how closely meals match up with nutritional goals via a Balance Score. Save meals that meet nutritional goals into a personalized archive, where the meal card can be easily accessed and the meal’s ingredients reviewed.
- Gain access to a database of over 350,000 food items, and growing, in addition to a cloud-based application that consistently updates features based on user needs.
The Prep Pad is available for $149.95. For more info visit The Orange Chef.
