On the whole, our lifestyles have become more sedentary with the great advances in technology which have occurred in the twentieth century. Many people are looking for new and innovative ways to stay healthy and fit, as a result; for many people, this can be a difficult process, because they lack the ability to motivate themselves without outside help. They also may not know all of the factors which can affect their health, so even if they believe that they are doing everything they can to improve their health, there may be other factors affecting their health of which they are unaware. Fortunately, with the recent advances in technology have come a variety of tools which can be used to improve overall health and quality of life, and help to motivate individuals to make lifestyle changes.
While there are a variety of applications, or apps, for smartphones and other mobile devices which focus on dieting, calorie-counting and nutrition, there are few which focus solely on tracking one’s food intake for the purpose of metabolic typing. Metabolic typing, or MT, is a more comprehensive system for improving your overall health by changing the way you eat. It accounts for not just the calories, fat and other common factors, but also how the food we eat affects our mental, emotional and physical well-being at any given time. MT helps those who practice it to establish connections between the foods they consume and the reactions those foods produce in their bodies, and by so doing, to avoid consumption of foods that create a negative reaction.
One new application for MT users is Foodio. Foodio is designed to track what you eat, and also how your body reacts to what you eat, so that you can learn to avoid foods which cause a negative reaction in your system. You can keep a food diary, entering both the food you ate and what quantity you consumed at any time of day, and also create custom meals and save them for later. Foodio also allows you to make notes regarding how the food was prepared, as the method of preparation can have a significant impact on your body’s reaction to the meal. The app even allows you to set reminders for your regular mealtimes, and triggers an alarm one hour and fifteen minutes after you would normally eat, since this is the prime time for recording metabolic reactions. You can keep track of the nutrients and foods you usually consume, as well as a three-month record of your weight.
In addition to acting as a food diary, Foodio has one feature which sets it apart from other MT-related and dieting apps; it provides users with a new way to interact with their metabolic typing adviser, dietician, nutritionist, personal trainer, or any other professional dedicated to helping the user get in shape and stay healthy. Advisers can see how you are preparing food, which is something frequently omitted from food diaries, and the user can send their diaries (for a day, a week, or a customized date range) to their adviser with the push of a button. It also allows you to set up appointments with your adviser, and set reminders for upcoming appointments.
There is a wide variety of dieting and nutrition apps available, but almost none that are designed specifically for metabolic typing. While Foodio was created for this purpose, it can also help just about anyone who wants to lose weight, get fit, or just have a better understanding of the way what we eat affects our well-being; not only does it help you track your goals and progress, but it helps you share that information with those who are there to help you on your journey.
