Users will have a Registered Dietitian (Nicole) assigned to their personal, private account for daily tracking, feedback and recommendations on your daily diet, 7 days per week.
Users will record their diet with the mobile application throughout the day and automatically build a daily profile of their diet. At midnight, the profile is passed to your assigned Registered Dietitian for evaluation and feedback on that specific 24 hour timeline. The relationship is private, secure and convenient for users.

How to Record Meals
Step 1 – Choose “Meal Input” tab on app homepage
Step 2 – Touch picture icon on upper left and take a picture of meal from 12 inches away. Add details of meal ingredients and portion of meal consumed if you choose to provide details for your Registered Dietitian. Also identify hydration throughout the day. The process takes less than a minute!
Record Daily Activities
Step 1 – Choose the “Physical Activity” tab on the app homepage.
Step 2 – Users have the option to record their daily physical activity, sleep hours, stress levels, stress level reduction and weight for their Registered Dietitian to acknowledge when reviewing the daily diet. This can be very important if regular activity, stress levels or sleep levels leads to increased/decreased meal consumption.
Your Dietitian Response
At midnight, your previous 24 hour diet timeline will be passed to your Registered Dietitian (Nicole) for evaluation. Nicole will review your diet and provide a daily summary, rate specific categories such as unhealthy fats, sodium, sugar, fruits/vegetables, quality and quantity and then leave a personal message via text, voicemail or video clip. The user will receive an email from their Dietitian when the daily response is ready.
Users will receive an email when their daily response is ready for viewing. Users are encouraged to login to the website to view responses so they can view their personal graphs that detail their personal ratings and progress. Responses can also be viewed within the mobile app but the website provides a more enriched experience with additional details.
How does a Registered Dietitian differ from a “nutritionist”?
Registered dietitians are highly educated and skilled nutritionists. However, the term ‘nutritionist’ is not as well regulated. A nutritionist may have a degree in nutrition, and (often) may not. While there are some nutritionists who teach evidence-based (and scientifically-validated) information, many do not. It is difficult to validate the credentials of a nutritionist, but quite simple to validate the education, experience and skills of Registered Dietitians. In many states anyone can call themselves a ‘Nutritionist’, even if they have never taken a class in nutrition from an accredited university. The mobile app is guided by Nicole, Registered Dietitian – the premier source for evidence-based diet and nutrition information.
