DIET TRACKER

I.

OVERVIEW

Nutricia is an app for health-conscious people, helping them keep track of their daily diet. The app is based on a futuristic concept of scanning the food item (like the QR code scanner) to check the nutrients and ingredients present in it. By using this app, one can regulate the consumption of food based on his personal choices. I was inspired by my own fitness goals that led to the contemplation and finally solving the problem.
