The iFastFood app is an awesome tool for the health conscious and those watching their weight.  

Users of this medical app have many ways to track their daily intake of greasy goodies. iFastFood app users can search for calories by restaurant name or the name of the meal item (i.e. McDonald’s or Big Mac.)  This medical app will then pull up a nutrition label, much like what you would find on the side of a box, for the selected items in your meal.  From there, iFastFood enables users to complete an advanced search for their selected item based on nutrient type. 

Users can search by calories, carbohydrates, total fat, protein and sodium. This is a great feature for those with high blood pressure or high cholesterol, as they can monitor these items individually.

The hardest part of eating right is remembering and tracking the healthiest choices.  iFastFood enables users to log that healthy item into their “favorites” section for easy recall during their next visit to the Golden Arches.

Many users of this medical app may be looking strictly at calories, but the nutrition guide provides a step-by-step list of places to look.  iFastFood users start by looking at calories, then the nutrients they should limit and increase, followed by a footnote and a quick guide to the daily values.

Unfortunately, not all fast food restaurants and meals are listed on iFastFood. However, many restaurants carry similar items, and this medical app can aid in finding a comparable nutrition count.
