Even without saying it out loud we know that obesity is one of the major health problems that American adults are facing today. In fact, the problem with obesity has become so alarming that 2 out of 3 adults and 1 out of 3 children are considered overweight or obese. With the onset of the technological era, people have become more reliant on their gizmos and technologies resulting in a decrease in physical activities. Studies show that only 19 percent of Americans get the recommended amount of physical activities needed by our bodies to keep fit. This is attributed to the fact that aside from people relying on their cars for transportation, people are also becoming more and more reliant to their gadgets for their daily activities.
Don’t worry though, we’re not asking you to sell iPhone 4 just to be free from the risks of diabetes and high blood pressure. In fact, you may as well keep it because it can actually help you make healthy choices through food and lifestyle apps! Doctors and nutritionists all over the world have agreed that you don’t have to starve yourself to death just so you can lose some weight. All you need is a change in lifestyle, and that’s exactly what the makers of Perfect Produce wanted to preach! Perfect Produce is the perfect iPhone app for those who are determined to abandon the fast food lifestyle (which is one of the main culprits for weight increase and type 2 diabetes in the country) to try the organic way of living.
The Perfect Produce is a product of SparkPeople, a healthy and wellness website and online community that urges people to take a longer course in life by getting into the organic lifestyle bandwagon. The app is essentially a big directory of fruits and vegetables that includes their nutritional value and their seasonality. The app also shows how to pick the best produce for storing, preparing and cooking. Aside from the healthy dose of information, the app also offers nutritional recipes.
Another thing we love about this app is that all the information it contains is organized beautifully. It’s practically like going into a garden where you can find rows of veggies and fruits that you can easily handpick! The layout is also very user-friendly and can be easily navigated to switch from information pages to selection guides to recipes. You won’t need to sell iPhone 3GS for this app because it costs only $1.99 and runs perfectly on any Apple device with iOS 4.2,
While it is now currently situated in the new Food & Drink category in the Apple App Store, we think that the app still needs a few improvements in the recipes section. It would help if they added more recipe ideas for dieters and non-veggie lovers or those who are just starting out with the organic lifestyle. This way, organic dieters would stop thinking about wanting to sell iPhone because of total dieting frustration.
