You can only manage what you measure. This why DietSensor, the first instant nutrition coach with sensors is able to tell within seconds the nutritional values of a food or beverage and give immediate advice, driven by evidence based medicine. It is aimed at people who need to regain control of their daily food intake, especially those who are suffering from being overweight or with chronic diseases related to nutrition.

But SCiO also works on homemade foods and beverages, hence it is better than barcode scanning methods. For more info, visit us on www.dietsensor.com
