DietSensor Helps You Manage a Healthy Diet

The DietSensor mobile application will help you analyze and manage your daily intake of key nutrients.   In just one week, the app will help you change your eating habits by identifying the best foods for you, and which nutrients you need more or less of.

Using the mobile app is extremely easy.  You just input the foods that you eat into the app, and the rest is taken care of.  The app will analyze the different components of your meal, and let you know what nutrients you need.  It will also display the ten foods that have caused you the biggest challenges.

Eat With Less Stress

It is not always easy to follow all your doctor or dietitian’s advice.  Unfortunately for many of us, eating healthy is associated with strict diets or limited menus.

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.”

Balanced Eating Made Possible

With the DietSensor, changing eating behaviors is easier than ever.  The application defines your goals, taking into account chronic health conditions like diabetes, cholesterol or obesity.  It follows you throughout the day and helps you achieve your goals at every meal.  And, the nutritional coach gives you useful tips for each meal.

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.

Did you know that 45-55% of your daily calorie intake should come from carbohydrates? That lipids should represent 30-35%?  And proteins 10-20%?

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.”

“I always thought I could achieve weight loss just by cutting fats.  I have been proven wrong many times.
