This plan reflects the latest science that takes into account how different nutrients in foods are processed by the body, how satisfying they are and the impact this can have on your weight loss efforts. A value is assigned to every food and drink based on the amount of protein, carbohydrate, fat and fibre in the portion.
Each individual has their own daily allowance based on their gender, age, weight, height and lifestyle. The emphasis is on eating a healthy balanced diet and steady, sustainable weight loss. Fresh fruit and vegetables have zero value and should incorporated into your daily routine.
This application enables you to calculate the value for any food based on the protein, carbohydrate, fat and fibre within the portion. It automatically calculates the value in your portion from the values entered into the on screen fields. Furthermore it gives you the freedom to test the for any portion size based on a single set of nutritional data (for example per 100g).
The application also now enables you to save foods and their values to a personal 'Food List', saving you the trouble of re-calculating your favourite foods.
Dieting should form part of a healthy lifestyle incorporating exercise. The plan should not be undertaken by pregnant women, or by anybody below the age of 17 without GP approval. Your goal weight should not be below the healthy weight range of BMI 20-25.
