A great new, free tool is waiting for you to use – it’s called SuperTracker. SuperTracker is a resource designed to help people make healthy lifestyle choices and improve their diet. It can help you get personalized nutrition and physical activity plans, learn how to track your foods and physical activities to see how they stack up, and get tips and support to help you make healthier choices as it helps you plan ahead.
SuperTracker compliments the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) “Choose My Plate” and the activity-based program “Let’s Move.” SuperTracker empowers you – the consumer – to build a healthier diet based on personal preferences that meet nutrient needs and stay within your calorie allowance. Americans eating styles vary greatly based on many factors including culture, lifestyle preferences and health status. Features within Super Tracker allow flexibility to link and create unique combinations to accommodate personal preferences. So let’s get started and take a detailed look at this resource. Log in to SuperTracker to start using this great tool.
First, take a look at Food-a-pedia. This expansive database contains nutrition information for more than 8,000 foods that can be compared side-by-side. Every one of the food items in its database has been reviewed for its nutritional content by the USDA.
Next, learn how to track the foods you eat. Food Tracker can help you search and add foods to view how your daily choices stack up to your food group targets and daily limits. Make tracking and planning ahead simple by using the Copy Meals and Create a Combo features.
Thirdly, use the Activity Tracker, which is great way to track your progress as you move. Keep that motivation and great success rate in your activity plan. Now that you have a grasp on your nutritional needs and important foods in your diet, along with exercise, the Weight Manager can act as a guide to enter your weight and track progress over time.
To keep you motivated even more, the Super Tracker directs you to choose up to five Personal Goals and sign up for tips and support from your virtual coach. Finally, use reports to see how you are meeting goals and view your trends over time. Consumers can measure progress with these comprehensive reports ranging from a simple meal summary to in-depth analysis of food groups and nutrient intake over time.
So now you can get started. Create your profile and keep on track to a healthy lifestyle.
