A new application for tracking nutritional intake has been released for the Mac, BeFit. The software helps users track several different factors, such as calories, fat and sugar. Users can define explicitly what they want to track, and in turn access graphs and other analyses based on the food they record. The software has a food list with over 7,000 items from the USDA database, and additionally supports custom food lists and recipes. Spotlight support allows faster searches for food items.
BeFit can be tried for free with a limited database, or unlocked at a cost of $16. Current customers of the predecessor widgets, Calorie Tracker and Calorie Counter, can receive 50 percent off and get free updates until version 3.0.
