Optimal Nutrition is the first, and so far, the only,nutrition analysis software in existence that incorporates the September2002 guidelines issued by the Institute of Medicine, the medicaldivision of the National Academies.
The latest guidelines establishfor the first time a range of recommended amounts (Dietary ReferenceIntakes or DRIs) for macronutrients -- proteins, fats and carbohydrates-- and also include advice on how much dietary fiber and howlittle cholesterol or saturated fat people should strive for tomaintain good health.
Previous reports from the National ResearchCouncil over the last 60 years have dealt only with recommendedlevels (RDAs) of vitamins and minerals.
In addition, the program provides a unique glycemic index (GI) indicatorfor over 2,500 commonly used food items in its database. This isthe most comprehensive glycemic index rating compilation availablein any software product.
We aggregate GI measurements from the mostauthoritative sources and normalize the ratings into 3 categories:low, medium and high. Users can assign and modify the ratings forany foods in the NutriGenie database or in their own database.
Witha single command, the user can see all foods in the appropriateGI category for selection. Menu planning using desirable GI foodshas never been easier.
NutriGenie Optimal Nutrition is the onlysoftware that can analyze your diet and tell you precisely its caloriepercentage from low, medium or high glycemic index foods.
This isthe most meaningful way to assess the glycemic index of one`s nutrition. No other competitors` software on the market offers this functionality.
