NutriGenie Optimal Nutrition for Windows is simply the most remarkable nutrition software on the market. In a single program, user can evaluate his daily nutrition based on any of the following diet guidelines:
- The Food Guide Pyramid Nutrition from the USDA or American Diabetes Association,
- The American Heart Association nutrition recommendations,
- The Glycemic Index Diet,
- The Low-Carbohydrate, High-Protein Diets, such as Atkins diet,
- and others, such as the Mediterranean diet.
The Food Pyramid analysis is provided for every single item in the NutriGenie food database and user's daily nutrition is analyzed and displayed not only in numbers but graphically. This is a superb tool for those who wish to follow the American Diabetes and American Heart Associations' guidelines.
Low-carb, high-protein dieters can use Optimal Nutrition to count their carb, protein and fat grams. Percentage of calories from carbohydrate, protein, or fat is displayed for each food item, each meal or for the day.
In addition, the program provides a unique glycemic index (GI) indicator for over 500 common foods. One single mouse click will show you all high, medium, or low GI foods in the database.
