Whether you plan to dine out, get takeaway, or have food delivered from a local restaurant, this free app will help you make healthy choices.
Eating healthy at home is fairly straightforward, but sticking to your diet, no matter what it is, can be challenging when eating out. But if you've got the HealthyOut app on your phone, choosing healthy meals from restaurants can be a snap.
The free HealthyOut app offers a simple solution for making healthy food choices when eating out or having restaurant food delivered. Users can search for meals from nearby restaurants that fit their dietary or nutritional preferences, whether they eat a paleo, vegan, lactose-free, or gluten-free diet, with every dish listed on the app coming in at about 1/2 the calories and 1/2 the fat of average restaurant meals.
"Quickly find and order healthy restaurant dishes across the country. We're in over 500 cities. Search by calories & points, nutrition tags like heart healthy and paleo, cuisines and more."
The app, which is available for both iOS and Android platforms, allows users to filter meals by characteristics such as low carb, low calorie, low fat, high protein, and heart healthy designations, and includes popular diets like Atkins, South Beach, Paleo, Zone, and more.
Each dish has detailed nutritional information, including calories and points, and users can apply the Calorie or Points filters to find a healthy meal that fits into their diet plan for the day or week. And if you're so over the 'just eat a salad' advice, the popular filter "Not a Salad" will deliver meal suggestions that are, you guessed it, not salads.
HealthyOut currently has over 20,000 restaurants listed in more than 500 cities in the US, and integrates Yelp ratings and maps to the locations, which can help to narrow down your choices even further.
