Even though nuts have health benefits, that doesn’t mean you can go hog-wild with your portions.

We know how hard it is to find the time to monitor what you are eating when you have a busy schedule. However, it is necessary to track what we eat before it becomes a problem as monitoring nutrition is the only solution to reserve these trends. The DietSensor is here to simplify the process for you! It seems pretty simple in theory: It is a User-Friendly app, taking you 10 times fewer clicks to log a food than with other manual input methods. For even more precise and accurate analysis, our app integrates with the SCiO spectrometric scanner to identify the chemical makeup of what you are about to eat. DietSensor gives accurate results with any homogeneous food, even with homemade dishes and beverages that do not have a nutritional label. DietSensor’s innovative progression chart gives comprehensive information on carbs, fat, protein, calories, and alcohol levels to provide customized nutrition goals. Some of this might seem obvious, but you’ll be surprised at the detail that can go into a healthy diet. There’s even a Smart Scale Diet to help you measure exactly how much food you’re consuming. A first kitchen scale will be available this year, and a pocket size scale should come in 2017. For more info visit DietSensor.com or join our list dietsensor.com/wait-list/.
