Are you hungry and is a fast food restaurant just around the corner? Saying NO to a cheat meal can be impossible but don’t lose hope, you can still reduce on few extra calories and also simultaneously feed hungry families.
I know your question at the moment will be, how’s that even possible? You probably have not heard of FoodTweeks yet, have you? This is an application that looks to help users control their calorie intake through food awareness and a social sharing model.
The app informs users about alternate options to foods traditionally found on takeout menus i.e. switching to a Mcdouble instead of a Big Mac at a local McDonalds, skipping or reducing Cheese, Mayo, choosing skimmed milk over whole in the food ingredients.
This is not all; every calorie that you save with the help of the app brings in some joy for hungry families in the US as Foodtweeks makes a donation - equivalent to the calories you saved - in the form of food to the nearest food bank which is distributed to people in need.
Just don’t forget to "tweek" on your phone app for the alternate food option before you order your meal at the restaurant or before you make one at home to make your social calorie contribution count. FoodTweeks can be downloaded free of charge from the iTunes App Store or Google Play.
