A Healthy Idea for 2013
If a healthier lifestyle is one of your New Year's resolutions for 2013, there is a free tool available that can help you make the most nutritious and active choices for your lifestyle.
Making plans and sticking to them can be a challenge, especially when it comes to selecting nutritious foods and getting enough physical activity. Food choices can be confusing, and it's not always easy to determine the amount of physical activity that's right for you and your goals.
The new Supertracker can help you learn about your food and activity level. The Supertracker provides you with a personal account to track what you eat and what you do, helping you make healthy decisions and better understand the choices you make. It also can help you learn skills that make healthy living easier, like controlling portions, managing and losing weight, and making and keeping your healthy lifestyle goals.
A popular option since its launch, the Supertracker just celebrated its first birthday with 1.6 million users.
