[back to package description]


Nutri is a very basic library to calculate a little with macro nutrient's.


There are some food's included in VariousFoods.hs and more can be defined there. A Food is basically a function that takes an amount value and calculates from that the caloric value.


The amount of food is given by the Weight type. Until now, there are only Gramm values, but more can be added to that type.


The Macros type is a triple type, that contains the macro nutrients. Those are Protein, Carbohydrates and Fats.
