  1. Hi Prem,

    Just wanted to say thanks for sharing our infographic!

    We also released our first experimental app, The Eatery (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-eatery/id468299990?mt=8) recently and thought you might find it useful.

    The Eatery gives you the big picture breakdown of your eating habits and the best places to start making a change.

    It was named on of the Top 10 apps on the App Store in 2011.

    We’d love to hear your thoughts on The Eatery, if you’d like to share, do drop us a note at feedback@massivehealth.com.

    Warmest regards,
    Cassandra and the Massive Health team
