Fighting obesity with new app

(WTNH)- According to the New England Journal of Medicine, more than 2 billion people are now overweight or obese.In fact, one-third of American adults and one in six children are now obese. But there are companies and startups being created to aid in America’s fight against these startling obesity facts! One of these companies is Order Healthy, an app where people can order take-out or delivery with foods placed in groups of what’s healthy and what’s not that is expanding all over New Haven. Founder Ben Sakhai talks about how it works and how it can help you manage your weight. The app gives you access to over 10,000 restaurants and allows you to view each menu item on a traffic-light rating system – with GREEN being the healthiest, YELLOW being moderate and RED being unhealthiest.This is also perfect for men and women who are “on-the-go” or don’t have the time/energy to cook, but still want to live a healthy life.
