Figuring out what to fit into your diet can sometimes feel like playing a game of Tetris. This nifty web app allows you to explore different foods by different features, such as calories or carbohydrates.
We're big fans of flexible dieting, as opposed to rigid programs that characterise food as "healthy" or "unhealthy". Having a flexible diet means that there are no "bad" foods and instead everything depends on context.
That being said, one of the pitfalls of flexible dieting is that because no food is off limits, it's easy to feel paralysed when figuring out what to eat. Luckily, the creators of the BodBot fitness app, which we've mentioned before, have created a food explorer web app that allows you to identify foods by nutritional makeup.
Let's say that after my training session, I know that I need a meal that's medium-high in protein, high in carbohydrates, and low in fat. I can play around with the Food Explorer's slider bars to identify foods that will fit this template. For example, in this case it recommended roasted chicken and potatoes, which are a perfect fit.
In addition, there are diagrams showing macronutrient (carbohydrates, fat, protein) and micronutrient (vitamins, minerals, and so on) breakdowns for each food item. Check out the tool using the link below. It's pretty cool.
