Traditional meal tracking is hard...but taking pictures of your meal is easy. Tracking your meals by taking pictures has shown long-term weight loss and improved engagement in programs compared to traditional approaches
Our diet is a primary driver of chronic disease and poor health. Both providers and participants in the healthcare system need a personalized nutrition solution that helps them be more effective on the journey to improving diet for better health.
Generic disease state specific meal plans don’t meet patient needs, but creating personalized meal plans is too time consuming. In addition, time spent doing diet recalls and gathering other information from patients could be better spent educating and developing solutions. Current tools, like your EHR, are not addressing these challenges.
Calorie counting is hard to sustain over time and can cause anxiety with food. Recipe-based meal plans are too rigid and constraining to be practical. Apps need to be flexible to accommodate complexities in the day in the life of people and how they eat.
A six-month behavioral treatment program (SBT – 26 weekly sessions) with participants randomly assigned to four groups. Compared to the group receiving SBT the study shows that “giving meal plans and grocery lists was sufficient to increase initial weight loss by 50% at 6 months and by >100% 1 year later.” The study also showed that adding food provision to meal planning and grocery lists did not result in additional weight loss. Structured meal planning was associated with improving the quality of food stored in a participant’s home, improving their eating patterns, improved knowledge of the energy content of common foods along with improved decision making, and promoted adherence to a prescribed diet by simplifying the task of following the diet.
