What does the app do?

MyPlate is a mobile phone app which supports you to record food consumed. The primary aim of the app is to monitor energy, protein, fat, carbohydrates intake as well as a limited number of micronutrients and compare this to energy burnt by exercise. 

After entering information such as height and weight, users are asked to select their daily calorie goal – easy, moderate or challenging, or a custom option. Each of these promises weight loss. The app gives the amount of weight you can lose per week and the expected number of weeks by which you can attain this goal.

Using the food diary users input what they consumed for each meal. The app then calculates the calories, and protein, fat and carbohydrate content of that meal and gives you an idea of the remining calories you have for that day.

Most of the features are available with the paid upgrade for example, users can track the calories they burn by connecting with Google Fit.
