thryve mobile food coach: app review

Posted Oct 16 2012 9:31pm
Last week I saw an article on Lifehacker  discussing the new "mobile food coach" app, Thryve .

As described by its developers, Thryve
"...is a new, visual way to track what you’re eating that doesn’t use calorie counting. Thryve focuses on the food groups you’re eating and suggests what to eat more of for a more balanced diet. You’ll get a score for every meal entered based on the nutritional content and how much you say you’re eating. You can also see how the way you eat compares to the average of all Thryve users. Thryve will check in with you a little while after you eat to see how you’re feeling, to help you figure out the best way to eat for your body."
Since my eating schedule has become a victim of my weird, late-evening class schedule, I've been having some very strange cravings and aversions to food when I would otherwise love to eat. My hypotheses for strange tummy activity include eating too many snacks, eating too many nuts, drinking too much coffee, and eating at different times every day.

I had been considering a food journal to try to pinpoint what was causing my funk, and then Thryve fell into my lap. Armed with my new iPhone 5, I decided to check it out.

To get an idea of how Thryve works, I thought I'd take you through the process of logging a meal.

To begin adding a meal, you first take a picture of your food.
