For nearly three decades, American men and women have been mostly growing fatter together. But in recent years, for reasons researchers still don’t understand, women have broken away – with more of them becoming fatter faster. According to the journal TIME, the number of adults with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher, which is considered high-risk obesity, was 7.7%. For men specifically it was 5.5% and for women it was 9.9%. BMI is not a perfect measure of health and is based on a person’s weight and height ratio rather than their actual amount of body fat. It is highly time for an entirely different approach, one that emphasizes the association with the food and and the person to ensure that the correct amount of nutrients are being taken. Mostly of the 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/.

Even though nuts have health benefits, that doesn’t mean you can go hog-wild with your portions. According to Dr. Melina Jampolis, diet and fitness expert, people should not eat more than a quarter of a cup of nuts or seeds a day, since they have so many calories from fat. 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/.
