Poor diet increases the risk of a range of diseases, making the prevention and management of conditions related to poor nutrition as crucial as ever – but sometimes, providing routine provision of basic nutrition can be complicated. With the lack of time to give practical nutrition advice and appropriately assess patient diets, we break down how myfood24 healthcare can help improve nutritional care provision for patients.
The terms ‘nutritionist’ and ‘dietitian’ are often used interchangeably, which can make it confusing to know the difference and where to go when seeking dietary advice. This guide will simplify the difference and explain how to find a registered nutrition professional in the UK.
Whether you need to track a patient's eating habits, expand a student's mind about core nutrition principles or pioneer the next discovery in dietary health, myfood24 has been tailored for research, education, and healthcare settings to get you the best results.
But with three different versions for three different industries, you may be thinking:
What are the differences? Which solution will work best for me?
In this mini-guide, you can uncover all the individual features, tweaks, and benefits that make each myfood24 solution.
A recent study assessed whether myfood24 could be useful tool to support weight loss through dietary self-monitoring.
Dietary self-management plays an important role in managing weight and has consistently been associated with weight loss. Self-monitoring involves an individual to observe and record their own behaviour which increases their awareness of that behaviour, this can present the opportunity to adjust their behaviour, in this case dietary ones, in order to achieve their weight goal. An important aspect of dietary self-monitoring is the duration and frequency of monitoring. A recent small-scale study aimed to assess whether self-monitoring dietary intake using myfood24 was suitable for individuals wishing to lose weight.
