The Best Food Tracker Just Landed Right In Your Own App on BodySite!

The food tracker your patients want and that your practice needs for better patient compliance is available to you right inside your own BodySite provider account and app. You already know BodySite guides your patients through care protocols and lifestyle changes. And we’ve always had a food tracker for patients to log and journal meals.

Today, we are happy to unveil a new food tracker to further enhance compliance, patient engagement and guidance. There are a hundred little tweaks and improvements throughout the new food tracking and meal building functions, but here’s quick overview of the most important new stuff that’s live, and what’s coming in the next 3 weeks.


New Food Tracker Has Largest Food Database and Natural Language Search on web and in native iPhone app.

The BodySite food search now consists of nearly 631,000 grocery items, 137,000 restaurant items and 26,000 common Foods, with photos and user-friendly ordering of results. And you can simply type in whatever you like, and we’ll find it, like  “I had strawberries for breakfast.”

Calorie Goal – set manually or calculate automatically

Not everyone wants to count calories or set a calorie goal, but it should be easy to do if someone wants to, so we added it! Using the updated Harris Benedict calculation, we can calculate the calorie goal based on age, sex, height and weight or patients can override it and set their own calorie goal both on the web and in the app.

Coming in a couple of weeks, we’re adding a set of features that will make your BodySite food tracker your patient’s new favorite food journal. They’re literally going to stop using the other apps, which is great for you and your ability to guide them and monitor what they’re doing.

Track by Photo – Add photos and notes to each meal to show what you actually ate

Let’s face it. Your clients are always holding a camera (phone) in their hand at every meal.  If they can share it on Instragram, they ought to show their doctor or coach too, right?
