Keep track of the foods recommended by Dr. Greger in his New York Times Bestselling book, How Not to Die, and now his new book, How Not to Diet.
The 21 Tweaks feature, based on How Not to Diet, also provides a weight tracker. The weight tracker can use HealthKit to either save manually entered weight values or to read weight data from HealthKit enabled scales.
In the years of research required to create the more than a thousand evidence-based videos on his website NutritionFacts.org, Michael Greger, M.D, FACLM, has arrived at a list of what he considers the most important foods to include in a healthy daily diet.
Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen details the healthiest foods and how many servings of each we should try to check off every day. He explains his rationale in his book How Not to Die.
All his proceeds from his books, DVDs, and speaking engagements are all donated to charity.
NutritionFacts.org is a non-commercial, non-profit, science-based public service provided by Dr. Greger, providing free daily updates on the latest in nutrition research via bite-sized videos. He has nearly a thousand videos on every aspect of healthy eating, with new videos and articles uploaded every day.

Ratings and Reviews
Simple but perfect plant based support
Dr. Greger’s daily dozen has been a life saver. I don’t like counting calories, I think that’s kind of ridiculous really, and “diets” are usually pointless, because we just need to eat healthy Whole Foods! This plant based plan to follow a general outline of necessary nutrients has allowed me to keep track of my daily food intake without it being a chore. I downloaded the app immediately after reading How Not To Die and as I help my way through a series of comparable books, this app has supported my transition to a fully plant based. Egan diet (I was vegetarian for years but never as aware or the nutritional aspects). After reading The China Study, Proteinaholic and a few other books I had an even greater understanding of the importance of NOT cutting carbs while also not stressing about protein. If anything consuming less and definitely no animal protein. So as I learn more about nutrition I can continually return to this simple app (and the poster I purchased from his site) to organize my spur of the moment vegan concoctions. I dot. Always check everything off the list but I make a good effort and see how off track I’ve been in the past. I can only hope more people become aware of the benefits of a plant based diet, and use simple wisdom like Greger’s to increase their own health and awareness.
Love the Updated Version!
Thank you for an entirely revamped app. I was happy with the old version as a way to track my nutrition through consuming the Daily Dozen. I was also thankful that it was a free app. I love the new updates including historical data, the ability to check off boxes right on the home screen, and the addition of tracking vitamins B-12 and D. In future updates, I would love to see a couple of “extra” boxes next to each category as optional to check off - they don’t need to count toward number of servings but sometimes you ingest more greens than the recommended and that’s not a bad thing! I’d like to have visibility to the extra good things I’m doing. The other thing I would like to see is adding a user-defined section where we can add our own daily health goals. It might be taking a probiotic, or another type of supplement customizable to your own health needs. I think that users might even be willing to pay for a version of the app that includes customization. Either way, thank you for spreading your message and helping us to stay on track!
Very appealing to box-checkers
Love the app. Simple to use; so intuitive that even the digitally-challenged can make it work the very first time. Easily helps you identify what you need to work on, with regard to diet; a few days of using the app will reveal your dietary gaps, so you can take measures to shore things up. In the second part of Dr. Greger’s How Not to Die, he lists his ‘favorite’ beans, cruciferous veggies, whole grains, etc.; it would be nice to modify the app so users can click on something to quick-reference these lists in the “info” section for each group. This would help users learn more quickly about the wide variety of foods that “fit” into each category. (Former adherents of the SAD - standard American diet - way of eating will have never heard of many of the foods Dr. Greger recommends.) All in all, an excellent and useful app for guiding a healthy whole food, plant-based eating program.
