Eat Different Encourages Healthy Habits

Eat Different is a service that aims to help people change their eating habits. The basic premise of the site is to provide a place for users to track their eating habits and receive reminders about their new diet and exercise habits. There is an optional community aspect to Eat Different that allows you to invite others to encourage you as well has have conversations with people who are also trying to change their habits. Free Android and iPhone apps are available to use to record your daily habits.

Applications for Education
Eat Different grabbed my attention because in my area we have a huge problem with child and teen obesity. In fact, my district got a grant to implement new student health programs to address the issue. Eat Different could be helpful for some teenagers who want to change their habits and need some tools to help them record their changes and or get support from friends.
