Some of you have run into a invalid username error while using the Diet Record Management function on your mobile device. Please note that, currently, there are two credential settings in the applications, one is for search and one is for diet record upload. There is a default username/password came with the app allowing the basic search function under Low Protein Food List, while the diet record management requires a valid username and password in order to upload your diet records to the www.mypkudiet.com web site so your diet records can only be seen by you. you can register an account on the home page of www.mypkudiet.com. Registered user has many other benefits using the web site from which you can enter additional food record phe/protein/calories facts so that you can use later on your cell phone, or you can run reports on your diet records, etc.

I am planning to consolidate the two credential together, hope to see it in the next version. Thanks!

Application Use Case

A few of you asked me for a use case to demonstrate how this app helps me in my life. Here is one.

What I did for myself is that I added the most commonly used 300+ foods my son Vincent eats into my web site and that’s what my application search is currently based on. Everytime we encounter a new food, I just log into www.mypkudiet.com and add the nutrition facts for it so i can use it afterwards. Once I add a food into his diet, three key nutrition facts’ total will be calculated so I can track how much phe, protein and calories in his diet for the day. Any user can do the same thing.

mypkudiet.com Screenshots

 Below are three screenshots from the content management based web site which is the companion of the mobile application PKUDietBook. Low protein food list/nutrition facts are hosted and searchable either on the web site or via the PKUDietBook application. The web site also stores all the diet records that are uploaded from the PKUDieBook application and formats them into searchable reports. These reports can be easily shared with dietitians or doctors of your clinic.
