[prMac.com] Mainz, Germany - Synium Software today is proud to release Foodurama as Public Beta. Foodurama helps you keep track of what you eat. Not only does Foodurama log all the dishes and beverages you've had today, but it also suggests what to eat to ensure a balanced diet. No matter whether you're trying to stay in shape or regain last year's physique, Foodurama will enhance your awareness.
Is a full stomach all it takes to be satisfied? Eating well, properly and in a balanced way - it's just not as easy as it sounds. At some point, you will definitely have found yourself staring at the ingredients and nutrition facts listed on your product packs in disbelief and awe. So, which of them does your body need? Was it the saturated or unsaturated fats that are the healthy ones? And what about calcium? Is there a "too much" that's harmful?
Nutrition is a science in its own right. Entire truckloads of specific literature could be ploughed through and you still wouldn't have covered all facets of the topic. In most cases that's not necessary, minor adjustments may suffice.
Users can select from Foodurama's extensive food database and drop whatever they ate or drank onto the calendar, specify the amounts and that's it. Foodurama immediately saves all data and incorporates it in its calculations. By the suggestions Foodurama makes one can easily find out whether it's okay to eat steak next friday or if they should stick to eating salad. If somebody gave in to temptation today, what should he or she be eating tomorrow? All requirements are based on recommendation of the WHO.
