The Value of Nutrition

What if a number could revolutionize the way you eat?

The American diet is one of the primary culprits responsible for the rising cost of healthcare. Reports from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the United Stated Department of Agriculture (USDA) cite poor diet and nutrition as one of the leading contributors to obesity and chronic disease. According to the CDC, approximately half of all adult Americans have one or more preventable chronic diseases related to poor diet and physical inactivity. This rise in obesity and chronic disease is responsible for over $147 billion in healthcare spending each year.

The good news is that these problems are both preventable and curable by making better choices about your diet.

Introducing Nutrilyze – a mobile application that scores the nutritional value of restaurant meals based on your individual dietary needs using biometrics and physical activity.

Why restaurant meals? In 2015, for the first time ever, Americans spent more money on food at restaurants and bars than they did on groceries. Our goal at Nutrilyze is to change the way people eat at restaurants by eliminating impulsive ordering. Chain restaurants with more than 20 locations are now required to publicize the macronutrient content of each dish. While this is a positive step, micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals are still omitted. Nutrilyze expands on this information and calculates a personalized value based on your height, weight, age, gender, activity level, eating habits and weight goals. In short, Nutrilyze will help you make smarter, healthier choices when dining out.

Join us in revolutionizing nutrition by personalizing your dietary recommendations.
