Your gut biome and your genes hold the keys to your health. However, your DNA, your microbiome, and your blood markers together are only half the puzzle. They tell us about your current state of health, what risks or predispositions you might face, and in particular they inform the recommendations we present you with for eating, exercising and living more healthfully. The report doesn’t help you actually implement and incorporate those recommendations. That's where our app comes in!
It’s an intelligent app, so the more you use it, more food pictures you log, the more it learns about you, your patterns of behavior. Over time, you’ll be able to make correlations using the app like seeing what foods make you feel lethargic, or how sleep affects your cravings, or whether exercise and meditation help you lose weight.
A recent study in the journal Nature demonstrated that using an intelligent app can help more than three-quarters of people lose weight.
The more the app is used, the more weight is lost and the longer the weight is kept off. Even more exciting, people who regularly log their food online and weigh themselves regularly are twice as likely as the rest of the population to lose weight AND keep it off.
FoodRx is available FREE to all of our Core +, CONTROL, and D-Feat clients, and is accessible via web browser or as an iOS application. If you’re not already using it, you’d better start soon!
In Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman’s book “Thinking Fast and Slow,” the behavioral economist wrote: “You can do several things at once, but only if they are easy and undemanding.” Well, that’s the idea behind the behavioral “nudges” our app and health coaches provide. The idea behind our year long coaching programs is to guide people into making major lifestyle changes by building up incremental changes. Stay Informed. Stay Healthy!
