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.”

Added fructose is ‘a principal driver of type 2 diabetes’

In Mayo Clinic Proceedings, experts urge drastic reductions in the consumption of added sugar.

Read the full article at: www.elsevier.com

Recent studies have shown that added sugars, particularly those containing fructose, are a principal driver of diabetes and pre-diabetes, even more so than other carbohydrates.  So why portion control matters ? When you have type 2 diabetes, you need to gauge portion sizes correctly, so you know how many calories and carbohydrates you’re taking in and how they’ll affect your blood sugar. Learning what a portion size actually is – and eating that amount – is tricky. People are notoriously bad at estimating what, say, a cup of breakfast cereal looks like. Let’s make it simple ! Meet the DietSensor app, the smart food scanner which pairs via Bluetooth with the SCiO sensor, and which has a small infrared sensor on one end. DietSensor is a handheld scanner that connects to an app on your smartphone via Bluetooth. When you point it at the food and click, it’s able to detect its nutritional value and send a detailed report straight to your phone via Bluetooth in seconds.

From calorie count and carbohydrate percentage to fat and protein levels, this tiny food psychic can determine the chemical makeup of both food and drink to give you a real, and often stark, insight into the grub you’re about to eat.  Isn’t it amazing ? Being able to know exactly what’s in every mouthful of food you eat is every dieter’s dream. This incredible DietSensor is about to make that dream a reality.

Starch and Root Vegetables and Diabetes

There are a whole range of root vegetables and most of them are also starches  – a type of carbohydrate. Basically, some plants store glucose as starch – giant chains of sugars.

So when it comes to root vegetables and starches, are they safe for type 2 diabetics to eat or not?

Even if there isn’t a great deal of evidence to show benefits of root veggies for type 2 diabete, having a wider variety of foods keeps things interesting and it also provides a wider range of vitamins, minerals and nutrients to the body.

As this article sums well: the thing that influences blood sugar and A1C the most is the total carbohydrates consumed. 

 

The bad news is that cooked root and starchy vegetables don’t come with a label and you need to look for nutrition facts on the web or in diet apps, but these facts ignore the butter, oil or water that were incorporated.

 

The good news is that DietSensor will be able to read the cells of such cooked foods. As long as it remains homogeneous, any fat or water incorporated will be seen by the sensor and the resulting nutrition facts will be added to your meal with a mere click of a button.

Carb counting is far from obvious. When it comes to portion sizing, DietSensor is the only solution that takes the guesswork out of it. Why learn carb% accurately or read labels when the result is 50% inaccurate due to a 50% error in the portion estimation.

DietSensor is able to connect with a food scale using Bluetooth open technology. It already connects with the only scale of that kind on the market – the Nutriscale from Reflex Wireless. Although DietSensor works perfectly fine without the use of a scale, it is our goal to make our Scan & Weigh logging experience available anywhere, even at restaurants. We are currently working on this feature, so please stay tuned for more information at www.dietsensor.com.

Carb Counting Methods Explained

There are only 2 different carb counting methods and they are much simpler to use than you think. Let’s go over them together here and clear up any confusion.

This article wisely recommends eating a whole foods anti-inflammatory diet that is lower in carbohydrates.As they say, one key point to mention is that following this style of diet means that most of the foods you eat WILL NOT COME IN A PACKET! This means the majority of the foods you eat will not have a food label. Broccoli, carrots and kale don’t need a food label. That’s where DietSensor can help a little. If you want to learn carb % by scanning your food or if you already know them approximately but want to gain accuracy, DietSensor will provide numbers with a mere click of a button.

Carb counting lesson #2: Simple and Complex Carbohydrates

If you’re type 2 diabetic you need to get your head around the different types of carbohydrates. We explain here what simple and complex carbs are with examples. For best health and blood sugar regulation, choosing complex carbs is the better choice. But, it’s also important to remember that many complex carbs are still high in overall carbohydrates, so some are still best avoided or only eaten in small portions.
