People who keep track of the foods they eat are more successful at changing eating behaviors and losing weight. And scientific studies have shown that following the DASH diet can help you lower your blood pressure, lose weight and feel better. Let this app help you follow the DASH Diet!
This DASH Diet Food Tracker app has been developed to help you easily keep track of your foods the way the DASH diet does, according to the number of servings you should be eating each day in the eight DASH food groups. The DASH Diet Food Tracker App will calculate how much you should be eating in each of the 8 DASH food groups, and then make sure that you are meeting those goals with the foods you love. And you can enter your foods whenever it is convenient for you.
The app includes a tutorial to help you use it successfully. It provides tips for learning what are DASH “servings.” It also provides a number of articles about some of the basics of the DASH diet. And it keeps track of your progress so you can see where you are doing well, and where you need some help.
The DASH Diet is recommended by the American Heart Association, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and has been selected as the best overall diet by U.S News & World Reports. No foods are out of bounds on the DASH diet. Use this app to make sure you are eating the right foods in the right proportions to powerfully impact your health.

That was a waste
Within a few seconds I knew this was a bust. As I was inputting my information I realized it doesn’t recognize predictive speech. Food database is EXTREMELY limited. No sugar substitutes, no cream, no name brands. Enjoy that $2. You won’t get another dime from me.
Good for the basics
Decent app in that it is very simplified to allow for very easy tracking of number of servings of each type of food, and seems to be specifically made for those new to the dietary requirements of DASH. However, I do wish that the app allowed for users to also track the sodium milligrams eaten each day. I wish to very tightly control my sodium to no more than 1500 mg/day, and I have to calculate that by hand, which is a pain.
Additionally, it would seem that there is no way to change the number of calories (i.e. to change from 1200 calorie meal plan to 1600 calorie meal plan). I designated the number of calories at the beginning to 1200 and I cannot find a way to change to 1600, which makes the app unusable because I cannot track the proper number servings under the new calorie requirements.
It’s decent for tracking servings, as long as you only plan to eat very basic foods. Kind of buggy though. It crashes every time I attempt to erase whatever I’m searching for. Don’t buy the meal plans. I thought it would integrate the calorie counts and servings into the tracking. Nope. It’s just a written out meal plan that you can find almost anywhere on the internet for free. Also, it doesn’t track sodium, even though that’s a big part of the plan. This app has the potential to be really great if they took feedback and fixed its issues. Too bad they haven’t done that. There’s a real need for what they started to do with it. They just never followed through and made it completely what it needed to be.
