Wouah! How else can I describe this new piece of software? Finally, someone understands that as much as I would love to eat a variety of good meals with low fat, low calories, low everything, I just don’t have time for it. With my business trips, even if I don’t want to, I often end up in a fast food. Does that sound familiar? Fast Food Calorie Counter for BlackBerry doesn’t tell you what to do or not to do. It fits any diet or no diet at all. It features a database containing 3,000 menu items from 29 different fast food places. For each menu item the nutrition information shows the number of calories, grams of fat, carbs, protein and fiber. And you will not believe how wrong we can be about all these things…
So here you are every day trying to stick to a salad, thinking that you’ve been pretty good and you’ll definitely lose some weight. Well, I have bad news for you… Salad in a fast food restaurant is not always synonymous with healthy eating. I found out that the Chicken Taco Salad from Steak ‘n Shake has 1,072 calories and 70 grams of fat! What about these milkshake afternoon snacks? Yes, up to 1,480 calories. On the other hand, In-n-out Burger has a 240 calorie hamburger where the bun is replaced with lettuce. The basic hamburger from McDonalds has only 250 calories. How about that??? I was so surprised by these facts that I now systematically check my BlackBerry before ordering anything. There are things that are twice as fulfilling, taste just as good but have 1/2 the calories of what I was about to order.
Using the application is a no-brainer and there are different ways to search for an item. You click on the restaurant icon and voila… it automatically lists all the items on the menu. You can filter the list by simply typing the beginning of a word or even sort your results by category, calories, protein, etc. It’s super easy. We liked it so much that we have negotiated a 20% discount price for you guys to get it too.
