DietSensor is the only one that makes monitoring easier.”

Eating the right amount of nutrients is essential to maintaining a healthy weight and to help avoid many health problems.

 “The DietSensor mobile app helped me to reduce the portion sizes wisely to maintain healthy eating habits.  I have never obtained as good results using other apps.

From MyPyramid to MyPlate – Food Recommendations from Special Interests

In 1992, the USDA sought to convey to Americans what it meant to maintain a healthy diet using a colorful and easy to understand graphic – the food pyramid.  The food pyramid was utilized by schools, government programs (such as the Federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), and various major media outlets to convey the elements of a healthy diet.

As the obesity rates in the US continued to climb, in 2011, the food pyramid was replaced with the MyPlate diagram.  MyPlate illustrates recommended portions directly on a representative plate and aims to educate Americans on the food intake and portioning that constitutes a healthy diet.

The challenge with both of these tools has been that while many qualified experts were consulted on their development, so to were corporate lobbyists and industry groups who are major contributors to government parties.

What is truly needed are recommended nutritional guidelines that are not influenced by corporate lobbyists or governmental agencies.

What we eat affects our bodies and our health. For people with diabetes, what we eat can help us manage the condition or put us at risk for serious health issues. Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects almost 30 million adults in the United States.

Our body and health have a close connection with what we eat. People with diabetes can manage their condition with healthy eating habits. Diet is a key factor in dealing with diabetes or other chronic diseases. However, it is sometimes very difficult to manage the macronutrients for a balanced diet. Some people tend to reduce their carbohydrate intake thinking that this could help them losing weight or fight diabetes. However, there is no conclusive evidence to prove this statement. According to various studies, people with diabetes can choose carbohydrates that are higher in fiber and eat more fresh foods rather than processed foods.

For some people, counting macronutrients imply reading the nutritional labels on packaging, estimating portions to fill a logbook. Even with a smartphone application dedicated to manual counting, this task becomes tedious with time. Balanced nutrition is difficult, yet it is the best tool for prevention and maintaining our health. With Dietsensor, a click on the sensor enables its users to know exactly whether the food meets their nutritional goals. They can also control effortlessly and precisely the composition and balance of their meals.

The simple lifestyle change that can reverse diabetes

 

Patients who reverse their diabetes and then keep their weight and blood glucose levels down can remain free of the condition, new research has found.

Fitness trackers may not help people keep weight off long-term 

This Viewpoint discusses issues that prevent wearable medical devices from effectively bridging the gap between recording information and changing health-relate

Read the full article at: jamanetwork.com

People have become addicted using wearable fitness technology thinking that it is a good escape and easy way to manage their health weight loss. Fitness wearable are marketed as a way to help you control your activity, but it turns out they may not help users keep weight off in the long term. According to a new study, obese adults who have lost weight, those using a fitness tracker gained back more weight than those who don’t have one. At DietSensor, we are convinced « what gets measured, gets managed! » Weight, diet and physical activity trackers often help you measure your progress but fail in telling you how to improve your habits or give you the support you need.

FITNESS WEARABLES DON’T GUARANTEE YOU WILL LOSE WEIGHT

Hoping to pop on a wearable fitness tracker and watch the pounds melt off? Dieters are better off using another strategy.

Maintaining a healthy body weight, self monitoring of food intake and physical activity, are the centerpiece of behavioral weight loss intervention programs. However, a new study out of the University of Pittsburgh showed that members of a group who wore fitness trackers lost less weight than a group that tracked their fitness manually, and we’re not surprised at all. In fact, overweight adults who did not wear fitness trackers during the two year weight loss study, failed to shed more pounds that those who did use them.

Why Widgets don’t work?

It’s a good question. We thought that it is due to several reasons. One is that when you start wearing this technology, when you do weight loss, you have to pay attention to what you eat, when you eat, how much you eat, how much activity you do… and all those things are very important! Thus by giving somebody these wearables, it may put such an emphasis on focussing to what they are doing that they lose track of what they are eating and how much they are eating and so on. So they lose track of the other things that are really important to manage their weight.

Wearable fitness trackers can count your steps and track you movements, but they don’t, apparently, contribute to lose weight. In fact, you might lose more weight without them.

Although wearable devices have the potential to promote health behavior change, this change may not be driven by these devices alone and this had been small scale and short term, and that wearable tracking devices alone won’t drive health behavior change, according to researchers.

Losing weight can be fun, maintaining that loss often becomes a tedious, never-ending obstacle. Sustaining fat loss demands determination, big-picture focus, and uncomfortably saying “no” to your carb-pushing aunt’s chunky cheesecake brownies.

A balanced and health-promoting lifestyle, which should include moderate physical activity, a balanced and healthful diet, adequate sleep, and effective stress management, can improve these conditions, lead to weight loss, and improve one’s overall quality of life.

In competitive, mature markets, there is a number of players, positioned as either product specialists or market specialists, including DietSensor, that have designed personalized platforms to promote an active lifestyle and well-being based on nutrition behavior changes, thus adding value to the existing data analysis such as wearables devices. DietSensor’s core goal is to stem the growth of diabetes and obesity by providing people with access to real-time, real world applications that can better manage their condition.

At DietSensor, we are convinced « what gets measured, gets managed! » Weight, diet and physical activity trackers often help you measure your progress but fail in telling you how to improve your habits or give you the support you need.
