You probably already have an idea of what’s healthy and what’s not, but do you know exactly how many calories are in the cauliflower cheese you had for lunch? Or how many you burn with a brisk walk to work?

Getting a better balance
Whether you sit at a desk all day or cycle around the city, you have to balance the calories you’re using with what you’re eating. At Eurest, we take nutrition seriously. We take care to give you balanced, healthy meals with as much nutritional information as you need to make your choice on what to eat.

And we’ve teamed up with an app which gives you even more control.

myfitnesspal can take your understanding of calorie intake and those burnt through exercise — as well as the nutritional value of foods and drinks — to a whole new level. It gives you the opportunity to learn more about the food you enjoy, letting you design a diet and lifestyle that really works for you.

The healthy choice
Know Your Food, our platform for health and wellbeing has become a valued partner of myfitnesspal, giving you access to more than 4,000 recipes that we use every day in our restaurants.

It means you can see at a glance the nutritional information for every meal we serve. You can save the details of what you’ve eaten and then balance them against the activity you’ve done. With so much to do in a day, many people find it difficult to look after their health and wellbeing at work. By using mobile technology, you can do this in a simple, quick and easy-to-manage way.

Promoting positive lifestyles
I downloaded the app myself to keep track of my calories (and to prompt me if I need to do a little more exercise). So far, I’ve been amazed at what I’ve learnt about the meals I eat — and this helps me to enjoy a more balanced lifestyle. It also shows the difference we can make by giving you more information about the food you eat with us. 

With better knowledge, poor diets don’t stand a chance. Working with myfitnesspal gives us yet another way to help you to make positive food choices. The combination of good food and technology means you have the opportunity to stay on top of your health. See the myfitnesspal website and check out our wellbeing page to find out more.
