AFIT for iPad on the iTunes App Store

AFIT is a tool to help you learn about nutrition and physical activity as you track your progress each day. The main components are based on a motivational strategy for engagement in a healthy lifestyle.

Anyone can use AFIT to monitor health information as an AFITstudent. You get points and stars as you enter what you eat and what activities you accomplish, starting fresh each day. You get an overview of your progress with the nutrition and activity logs, and you can jump back to review and edit your information for any day in full detail.

If you are a student in a participating educational study, you can log in to submit your information to your teacher. AFITteachers can help students reach full potential by reviewing the daily records.
