What is Crunch In?
One of the most important features in Crunch, just simply swipe the Crunch In slider in red and take a foodfie. Select your meals amongst an over 3,600 calorie-counted database of local dishes and get the estimated calories consumed and post it on your timeline.
Counting calories can be daunting at times – however, there are many benefits to calorie-counting. The act of calorie counting provides a form of structure to help individuals meet their health-related goals, and counting calories is easier than actually comprehending the complex effects that food has on the body. It also helps individual identify patterns in their eating habits – that might explain the reason of their frequent tiredness, constipation, bloating or weight loss plateau.
Crunch uses both local and international food databases which are further refined by our Nutritionist to bring you a curated selection of over 3,600 dishes and it adopts the Henry’s equation which is not only the most rigorously tested formula for calculation of energy requirement but also applicable to Asians living in the modern world.
Benefits of Crunching In
- Keep track of your daily calorie intake

When we record and keep track of what we eat, it is easier to make informed choices and hence makes it easier for us to manage our weight goals. We can set bite size calorie goals daily, for example, consuming 500 calories less per day, instead of long-term goals like losing 5kg in 2 months. And with goals that are easily achievable, we won't lose motivation that easily and give up on our weight loss journey. The same goes for you if you are trying to maintain your current weight, or if you are trying to gain some weight! What's more, besides tracking how much calories you consumed, Crunch's Crunch Out function helps you to track how many calories you burnt daily, to better aid you in your weight management.
