One of the best parts of the Biggest Loser SlimCoach system is their My Nutrition area. This lets you easily enter and track the food you eat on a daily basis, and instantly see all of the nutrition data in an easy to use interface.
Here is what the main screen for the interface looks like. You can easily get to any day you've used the system for, and see these stats for any day.
So in this case I had a shake for breakfast, a salad with lemonade for lunch, and an omelet with water for dinner. This is a nice mix of pre-made items and personal recipes to demonstrate how the system works.
For pre-made items like the shake, you search their system to find the entry. The system has thousands of items in it and has pretty much anything pre-made. So I found this and selected it. Easy. Now it's one of my 'favorites' so I can easily add it in going forward without searching for it.
For the salad and omelet, I added those as recipes. Adding a recipe is also easy. You make your list of ingredients and it already knows the calories in, for example, grape tomatoes. So you just tell it the quantity and it does the rest. You can save those recipes and even share them with others. And again it then is easy to select them going forward.
Once you've gone that, it shows you all the carbs, protein, fat, and calories, and even other values like sodium and vitamin A, on these easy to use screens. So you can scan your menu and see what is good and what might need to be adjusted. You can see how you're doing for calorie count and carb count.
I definitely like the My Nutrition area of the SlimCoach system, and find it quite useful. No matter what your weight and health desires, it's good to know what you're ingesting and how it's affecting you!
My one minor complaint here is that it shows all the top numbers in red if they're below whatever level you set. So say I set my carbohydrate level to be 25% of my daily intake of calories. I want to stay below 25%. So a low number is GOOD. However, the system shows it as red. I should be able to indicate that I think low numbers are good in some areas.
