AppAdvice has once again teamed up with appsSNAPS in order to offer you a chance to win one of five (5) promo codes for dietSNAPS for iPhone and iPod touch ($1.99). dietSNAPS isn't your typical food or diet tracking app; it takes food consumption watching in a whole different view, literally. Instead of just writing down calorie, fat, and other nutrition content of the foods you ingest, dietSNAPS makes you see what you're eating. This can be used in conjunction with your nutrition content tracking apps or as a replacement, in case those don't seem to be doing the trick for you. dietSNAPS doesn't have any math involved, it's about a psychological approach to keeping your food consumption in check. Your entries can include eating time, a notation of what you ate, and the meal type: breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, water, and drink. Saying you had three pieces of pizza for lunch and four plates of various food at the salad bar for dinner may be enough, but dietSNAPS lets you take a photo. Seeing the amount of food you eat can be more potent than just reading some number. The app doesn't stop there. Use it for your exercise routine. Take photos of your progression throughout the weeks and months, that way you can do a direct comparison. Speaking of monitoring progress, dietSNAPS lets you email or export your fitness or food consumption entries. Send them to your nutritionist, physician, or just keep your good friend informed, so they can help you along the way. Studies have found -- which I can vouch for -- that eating habits are linked to moods. Some tend to eat more when they are depressed or angry, some eat less. Using the Journal (available when adding a calender entry), you can provide a brief description of how your moods, thoughts, and whatnot may have related to what you ate that day. As a point, a number of bloggers have discovered dietSNAPS and really enjoy it: • The Fitness Journey of FitGirl-ATX • Byte Me - A Journey of Lifestyle Design • One Woman's Journey to Her Best Life dietSNAPS is compatible with iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 3.0 or later, but iPhone use is preferred due to the ability to add photos to your entries.
