As the following graphic shows, the US diet will be 100 percent sugar by 2606 if current trends continue. Although the American Heart Association recommends women consume no more than six teaspoons of added sugar per day (or about 100 calories), most of us take in double that. A high-sugar diet boosts your odds of tooth decay, heart disease, and diabetes, not to mention weight gain. Slash your sugar intake now with the help your DietSensor scanner! DietSensor is THE app, to help americans to cut down on added sugars, saturated fats and salt if they want to eat a diet that can improve their health. Using the SCiO, the world’s first handheld spectrometer, the guidelines of the DietSensor emphasize the adoption of a healthy eating pattern that fits into a person’s lifestyle, rather than recommending specific amounts of different foods, such as vegetables or meats. These patterns can be tailored to an individual’s personal preferences, enabling Americans to choose the diet that is right for them. There’s also the Smart Diet Scale, which allows you to weight your food, letting you more precisely calculate the calories and nutrients in your meal than if you just eyeballed it! However a first scale will be available this year, and the pocket size scale should come in 2017. For more info visit DietSensor.com or join our list dietsensor.com/wait-list/.
