U.S adult obesity rates remained mostly steady — but high — this past year, increasing in Kansas, Minnesota, New Mexico, Ohio and Utah and remaining stable in the rest. Arkansas had the highest adult obesity rate at 35.9 percent, while Colorado had the lowest at 21.3 percent. Obesity puts some 78 million Americans at an increased risk for a range of health problems, including heart disease, diabetes and cancer. About 150 million Americans say that they are tracking their diet, of which 40 million people are using manual diet and nutrition apps. By facilitating food intake tracking through automation, DietSensor marks the beginning of the next generation of technological nutritional tools to empower and coach its user to regain control of their daily food intake. We all know that balanced nutrition becomes tedious with time, yet is the best tool for prevention. DietSensor uses the SCiO, the world’s first handled spectrometer, to 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 know the precise weight of the food being consumed. The groundbreaking of the diet scale is simple, fast and effective. 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/.
