Danholt4mac has updated Calories (http://macte.ch/p8sIS), a nutrition tracking and analysis utility for Mac OS X 10.5 (“Leopard”), to version 2.8. The new version is ready for Mac OS X Lion. Also, new options have been added to retranslate your food database to more languages.
Calories is targeted at casual users who wish to keep a journal of their daily nutrition activities. Users may select foods from the applications database and add them to breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacking categories. Depending on his/her selection, Calories then automatically calculates and displays the total consumption of calories, carbs, fat and proteins for the whole day, or for one of the categories.
In addition to calories, carbs, fat and protein, the application calculates and displays more than 40 nutrients; minerals and ingredients like Alcohol, Zink, Vitamins, etc. Calories also offers simple reporting functionality. You may switch to reporting mode with the option to display reports for the day, week, month or year.
Calories is based on the USDA (US Department of Agriculture) Food and Nutrient Database for Dietary Studies 3.0, which offers more than 6,900 different foods with more than 60 different nutrients (Calories incorporates 44 of them) for each food. Calories costs approximately US$29 for a single-user license. It’s available in English, French, Spanish, German, Japanese, and Chinese. Version 2.8 is a free update for registered users. A 30-day demo is available for download.
