The DietSensor Nutritional Coach will help you analyze the food that you eat.  It will define the number of nutrients you need for each meal of the day.  It will also advise you on the best portion sizes of each food you log in.  The application takes into account what you have eaten, your profile, and the time of day.

“DietSensor is really effective when it comes to analyzing foods composed of various ingredients such as a salad with several vegetables and a source of protein. The mobile app tells you whether you are eating the right amount of carbohydrates, proteins or lipids. There are many applications that help users track food consumption. DietSensor is the only one that makes monitoring easier.”

Your results are displayed in a stop light format, using red, yellow, and blue to indicate your performance.  Blue indicates you have done well, while red indicates when you have eaten more than the targets that were set to achieve your goals

By using these simple tips, you can learn how to create a varied, healthy diet that is as good for your mind as it is for your body!

Easy to Implement Nutritional Recommendations

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

Do not feel overwhelmed by these nutritional facts!  DietSensor will help you to understand what your nutritional goals are, and how well you are managing to them!

 “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. As a diabetic, it is very difficult for me to lose weight because low-calorie diet often leads to hypoglycemia. Using the DietSensor Nutritional Coach, I have lost 3,5 kg in a few weeks with less blood sugar alerts.”

The authors call for a return to « whole foods » such as meat, fish and dairy, as well as high-fat healthy foods like avocados. Despite the best efforts of government and scientists, current efforts have failed and the proof being that obesity levels are higher than they ever been, and show no chance of getting better.
