Health Checker App

Calculates and checks your Body Mass Index (BMI), Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), Calories Requirement, and it also has a fun quiz round to educate us about our health and body.

Why the name Health Checker App

The name speaks of the idea on which the app is based on, i.e. to Check our health status and to educate us about the importance of health.

Inspiration

Calculates and checks your Body Mass Index (BMI), Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), Calories Requirement, and it also has a fun quiz round to educate us about our health and body.

What it does

  1. Count your Calories - Use our calorie-intake calculator to determine your daily caloric needs based on your height, weight, age and activity level. In addition to determining the calories needed to maintain weight, use this as a calorie burner calculator and figure out how many calories you need to burn in order to drop pounds. Then use the nutritional needs calculator and figure out how to break those calories into carbs, proteins and fat.

  2. Calculate your BMI - The Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator can be used to calculate BMI value and corresponding weight status while taking age into consideration. Use the "Metric Units" tab for the International System of Units or the "Other Units" tab to convert units into either US or metric units.

  3. Calculate your BMR - The Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) Calculator estimates your basal metabolic rate—the amount of energy expended while at rest in a neutrally temperate environment, and in a post-absorptive state (meaning that the digestive system is inactive, which requires about 12 hours of fasting).

  4. Take a Quiz - A quiz game to educate the user about the importance and working of our body and our health.

How we built it

Frontend: HTML, CSS, JavaScript Backend: Node.js, Bootstrap, External embedded sources

Challenges we ran into

One of the biggest challenges was to group together all four apps into a single functional page. Also, it was challenging to perform calculations in the backend using the user input data to calculate the BMI, BMR, Calories.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are happy that we completed the project in this short frame of time and we learned a lot from this hackathon.

What we learned

How to integrate multiple apps into a single landing page and to perform operations on user input data.

What's next for The Health Checker App

Adding more calculating apps, Recommendation for a healthy lifestyle, Device compatibility
