Spring Training for a Healthier Diet with GoodFoodNearYou

Find good food near you anywhere with GoodFoodNearYou – a free mobile and web search for menu and food nutrition information at restaurants near you

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 16, 2009

Increasingly popular free web and mobile service GoodFoodNearYou, which had over 30,000 unique users across internet, iPhone and BlackBerry in its first month, today announced it is getting a major influx of new restaurants and menu items. GoodFoodNearYou is a location based search for instant access to restaurant nutrition information on the web and on wireless devices using GPS.

The free location based search for healthy eating choices at restaurants near you added several thousand new restaurant locations including smaller restaurant chains, local mom and pop favorites, and specialty health restaurants such as KnowFat! Lifestyle Grille, Salad Creations, and Susan’s Healthy Gourmet.

Now, anyone with access to the Internet or a GPS enabled BlackBerry or iPhone can search thousands of new dining options including special request items that are often left off restaurant menus.

Nick Desai, CEO of Global Fitness Media, the company developing GoodFoodNearYou, says, “We are excited to increase the amount of restaurant locations and menu options available to search on GoodFoodNearYou. We now cover over a quarter million U.S. restaurant locations and include over 36,000 menu items. We have only tapped the surface of a convenient and fun to use service to help people make informed healthy food choices wherever they eat. GoodFoodNearYou is as easy and quick as ordering fast food itself.”

“The recent explosion in restaurant nutrition information is great news for consumers, but the information was hidden away on company websites. Not exactly convenient when you’re placing your order. Now, thanks to GoodFoodNearYou, this information is at your fingertips,” says Donna Feldman, MS RD, owner of D Nutrition Services LLC, and, food / nutrition consultant and writer.

Feldman continues, “I am a big fan of the GoodFoodNearYou app, because it empowers consumers with on demand nutrition information, easily accessed with your iPhone or BlackBerry. You can identify the lower calorie entrees, or find other ways to save calories, such as choosing lite salad dressing, leaving the special sauce off your burger, or substituting steamed veggies for mashed potatoes. And GoodFoodNearYou works everywhere, so you don’t have to abandon healthy eating just because you’re at the airport or a sporting event. GoodFoodNearYou is a great nutrition information tool, and I’m happy to recommend it to my clients.”

GoodFoodNearYou is accessible on Internet and on GPS enabled BlackBerry and Apple iPhone and iPod touch mobile devices. To conduct a free search on GoodFoodNearYou, enter an address, zip code, or select a popular location.
