NutriGenie Optimal Nutrition for Windows

"You can do a lot of things to improve your health,
but none is more important than good nutrition,
and none will do much good without it."

One of our latest and most comprehensive nutrition software with many of NutriGenie unique technologies and analyses, such as star rating of overall diet quality. Each diet is given a star rating from 1 to 5, with 1 being the lowest in quality. Our ratings take into account the latest guidelines issued in September 2002 by the Institute of Medicine, the medical division of the National Academies.

The program analyzes nearly 30 nutrients in user's diet and has almost all utilities available in other NutriGenie products. If you wish to choose a single general nutrition program from our catalog, Optimal Nutrition is our recommendation. It is the latest update of our most frequently licensed software by universities and health facilities worldwide and has been translated into other languages.

Optimal Nutrition is the first nutrition analysis software that incorporates the September 2002 guidelines issued by the Institute of Medicine, the medical division of the National Academies. The latest guidelines establish for the first time a range of recommended amounts (Dietary Reference Intakes or DRIs) for macronutrients — proteins, fats and carbohydrates — and also include advice on how much dietary fiber and how little cholesterol or saturated fat people should strive for to maintain good health. Previous reports from the National Research Council over the last 60 years have dealt only with recommended levels (RDAs) of vitamins and minerals.

In addition, the program provides a unique glycemic index (GI) indicator for over 2,500 commonly used food items in its database. This is the most comprehensive glycemic index rating compilation available in any software product. We aggregate GI measurements from the most authoritative sources and normalize the ratings into 3 categories: low, medium and high. Users can assign and modify the ratings for any foods in the NutriGenie database or in their own database. With a single command, the user can see all foods in the appropriate GI category for selection. Menu planning using desirable GI foods has never been easier. NutriGenie Optimal Nutrition is the only software that can analyze your diet and tell you precisely its calorie percentage from low, medium or high glycemic index foods. This is the most meaningful way to assess the glycemic index of one's nutrition. No other competitors' software on the market offers this functionality.
