HealthyOut, a New iPhone App, Launches on Food Day
October 24, 2012 in Lifestyle
[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - Say goodbye to feeling guilty after eating out or being frustrated by the lack of food options when you're on a diet. That's all history thanks to the launch of HealthyOut, a free iPhone app that lets you discover nearby restaurant dishes that match your healthy appetite.
With HealthyOut, people can quickly search for meals by calories and points, popular diets like Paleo or Low Carb or dietary restrictions like Gluten Free and Low Sodium. One of the app's most popular features is the Not a Salad filter. HealthyOut makes it easy and convenient to find healthy food that people still enjoy eating. The app is launching on Food Day to celebrate the movement towards healthy and sustainable food.
"We are a nation obsessed with dieting," says Wendy Nguyen, CEO of HealthyOut. "But it's not working. HealthyOut was created to help you find convenient food that you still love to eat. We think it all starts with the food."
With two-thirds of American adults struggling with overweight and obesity issues, developing solutions to help people eat healthier has never been more important, especially solutions that fit with people's everyday lifestyles.
"Our team created HealthyOut after speaking with hundreds of nutritionists, dieters, and healthy eaters who told us eating out was a huge issue. People lack the information they need to make smart food choices or often feel trapped into always ordering a salad. HealthyOut solves this problem by giving our users insight into the food they're eating before they step into the restaurant."
What Sets HealthyOut Apart?
Many health and nutrition apps focus on tracking every calorie you consume. HealthyOut wants to take the homework out of healthy eating. With a few taps, you're able to locate nearby restaurants, see what dishes look good and match your diet, and easily look up nutrition information before you order.
"We're bringing nutrition information forward and presenting it in a way that empowers people to make healthier eating choices," says Wendy. "There's a host of nutrition apps out there all focused on tracking. For anyone who's tried calorie counting, they know tracking equals works. We are determined not to make healthy eating a chore. We believe it all starts with finding healthy food that fits your lifestyle, and we can do this in a well-designed, easy to use app."
HealthyOut is piloting in the San Francisco Bay Area where it serves up healthy dishes at both local and chain restaurants. Those living outside of the pilot area can still use HealthyOut to find meal options at national chain restaurants.
Soon HealthyOut will release more features including crowdsourcing healthy options from the community as well as social features that allow you to get recommendations from others who share the same eating style. Be amongst the first to download HealthyOut from the iTunes App Store! And share this app with friends and family! This is just the beginning, so make sure to follow HealthyOut updates on Facebook and Twitter.
