Independent developer James Hollender today released his iCarbs 1.2 for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. iCarbs allows users to easily find out how many carbohydrates are in over 1,100 different food servings, critical information especially for diabetics who need to restrict their intake of carbohydrates. The App provides useful info for Bodybuilders and Diabetics. Here is more info on this iOS app:
The iCarbs app provides information about foods and how they are rated for carbohydrate content. This is provided as a means to assist in deciding which foods to eat. Bodybuilders probably want to have a high intake of carbohydrates (carbs), but on the other hand diabetics need to make sure they don't exceed their recommended daily amount. The food servings are rated from EXTREMELY LOW to EXTREMELY HIGH in Carbohydrates.
There are eight tables listing foods: * All Foods * Fast Foods * Fruits & Vegetables * Meat, Fish & Shellfish * Dairy & Egg * Cereal Grains & Pasta * Sweets * Snacks
Selecting a food serving in any of the tables will display additional information including: * Food Title * Weight (in grams) * Common Measure of Serving * Carbohydrate Content (in grams) * Calories (in kcals) * Percentage of Carbohydrate by Weight (if at least 1%) * USDA Description * USDA Food Group * USDA National Nutrient Database ID Number
