Much more than just calorie counting and macros
With a focus on complete nutrition over calorie counting, ‘Wholesome’ is a fresh approach to tracking what you eat. Unlike other nutrition trackers that only focus on macros, Wholesome also let’s you track vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. Based on what you're eating, the app identifies gaps in your nutrition and gives whole food suggestions to help improve your diet. Wholesome warns you when you've had too much sugar, sodium, or fat. It also syncs with Health kit and Apple health app. The app has already attracted over 250,000 health conscious people, mostly millennials.
