New “SuperTracker” takes the guessing out of weight management

The USDA nutrition SuperTracker allows you to accurately track your dairy calories and physical activities taking the guess work out of staying within your daily caloric recommendations.

Are you looking for a simple method to track the nutritional value of the meals and snacks you eat each day? Do you ever find yourself wondering how to accurately track the number of calories you are burning during an exercise workout? Are you attempting to lose or gain a few pounds but find it difficult to successfully add up your daily calories?

There is great news! The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) SuperTracker can do all of those things.

The SuperTracker was created to take the mystery out of analyzing the food you eat. SuperTracker is an on-line tool that is easy and convenient to use. Create a profile and simply enter your food and physical activity information and SuperTracker will do all the analysis for you.

SuperTracker aligns with the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. There are numerous food tracking tools available to consumers, but you will find SuperTracker to be extremely comprehensive. Tracking the serving sizes of the food and beverages you consume helps you to learn just what you are putting into your body. You can easily underestimate the number of calories you take in if you do not carefully track every bite. As few as 100 extra calories a day can contribute to weight gain. Most people are just not aware of their daily calories. SuperTracker has an extensive food database that will monitor your eating patterns and further analyze the daily nutrients your body needs based on gender, age, height and weight.

Balancing the calories you take in with the calories burned throughout the day is critical for maintaining a healthy weight. It can be challenging to know just how many calories you have used after walking for 45 minutes or biking for 15 minutes. SuperTracker will calculate these calories, taking into account factors such as duration of time and speed. The tool is designed to support both your physical activity and nutrition goals, as calories eaten and calories expended go hand-in-hand. SuperTracker also provides six reports for measuring progress toward your goals.

If you prefer adding the support of friends and family, SuperTracker allows you to add individual profiles to provide the additional encouragement you may need to stay motivated. Users can also connect to social media sites and share tips and success stories. You will also find helpful custom features such as virtual coaching, journaling and tracking your weight. You are in control to select the features that are important to you.

SuperTracker was designed to help Americans, regardless of age or fitness level, be successful to make improvements in dietary and physical activity choices. Knowledge can empower you. Tracking your daily eating and exercise habits through the SuperTracker could be just the resource you need to see results. A new SuperTracker mobile app is also being developed.
