Free Chrome app provides tighter browser integration to further help users reach weight and overall health goals.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 06, 2011

MedHelp, the world's largest health social network, announced the launch of Diet Diary - Calorie Counter in the Google Chrome Web Store. Diet Diary offers an enhanced experience to help users reach their weight goals with quick data entry, rapid page loading and a personalized interface. Additionally, the Diet Diary Chrome app syncs seamlessly with MedHelp's personal health platform, including over 50 online and mobile health trackers, such as weight, water, food and exercise, and MedHelp's popular My Diet Diary iPhone app. All three easily work together to allow people to manage their overall health anytime, anywhere. The app is available as a free install for the Chrome browser today at

The Diet Diary Chrome app has comprehensive weight, water, food and exercise trackers to help users closely monitor their caloric balance so they can reach their weight goals. The app boasts unique features such as personalized daily nutrition requirements (calories, vitamins, minerals, and more) based on the user's age, gender, height, and weight goal; a weight-goal progress tracker; and robust reporting of daily, weekly and monthly statistics, such as calories burned, calorie consumption and time spent exercising. By providing users with an easy way to track their eating and exercise habits and to monitor their weight-loss trends, users are able to make the right choices to reach their health goals.

The Diet Diary Chrome app seamlessly integrates with My Diet Diary, MedHelp's popular iPhone app, as well as MedHelp's online weight, water, food and exercise trackers. This gives users multiple ways to track their health habits and weight loss progress, in addition to being able to sync their data to MedHelp's website. By using the Chrome app in conjunction with one of MedHelp's condition-specific trackers, users can compare their diet, nutrition and weight data to other health conditions they may be managing, such as diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure.

"We are thrilled to have Diet Diary in the Chrome Web Store," said MedHelp president and CEO John de Souza. "Chrome's rich interface allows for quick and easy data entry, lowering the barrier for tracking users' nutrition and exercise and managing their health."
