It makes it easy to work with your Physician or Registered Dietitian to establish weight, healthy eating, and physical activity goals, and track your progress toward achieving them. It also calculates your BMI score, and provides a mechanism to view progress reports and email them to your Doctor or RD.
The app is part of Weigh What Matters, a family obesity prevention program developed by the American Medical Association, which encourages patients to work with their physicians to maintain a healthy weight, eat better, and increase physical activity. Weigh What Matters is part of the AMA Healthier Life Steps™ initiative.
This app is available for the Apple iPhone®, iPad® and iPod Touch® on the AMA iTunes store, and for Android devices. The application provides for daily tracking- from the convenience of your cell phone. This can be a great tool for personal accountability, goal setting, and can help you stay on track with your goals.
