Nutri Leaf and importance of health in daily life

Life has become so busy these days. It’s like a train with no final destination, stopping at stations for quick breaks and moving on hurriedly. In this haste of moving on and catching up with the rest, we sometimes do forget the importance of few things in life. One among them is self health. People are so occupied and busy with their materialistic tasks that they do not mind skipping their health checkup for a business meet or binging on junk food against the strict nutritional diet they follow. In this effort to catch up with the fast-moving train, little do they know that in order to catch up, they need to run which one can, only with a healthy body. This implies that a mortal human being may end up missing out on life and its important stages if he tends to overlook a few basic health measures.

Mahatma Gandhi rightly said:

Consuming unhealthy food may end up distorting the protein balance in one’s body, thus leaving some drastic effects on the human body like obesity, stress, malnutrition, food poisoning etc. Ofcourse no one wants to spend the whole 24 hours in a bed being ill due to mis-consumption of food. Being unhealthy on a frequent basis decreases the self-confidence of an individual and contributes to a lazy mind. And a lazy mind is a devil’s workshop.

But in today’s busy scenario where working professionals change flights almost everyday for their business meetings, students engage themselves in multiple activities with hardly eking out time for lunch/dinner and the concept of ‘Brunch‘ has evolved taking the place of breakfast and lunch, the question that arises is as to how can an individual stay updated on healthy matters, especially on diet matters? In this age of smartphones and technology, should one physically meet his doctor regularly or arrange for a virtual meeting? Or do we have another option? Yes we do.

A mobile application which analyses your diet and then advises ‘what to eat’ and ‘when to eat’. Sounds cool, eh?

Q. Where does this mobile application stay?

Right in your trouser pocket.

Q. Availability?

All throughout the day. 24 x 7

Q. What exactly it does?

It analyses your food intake, readies its database and advises you on what is healthy for you to eat and when.

Q. Thats all?

No. You can write a recipe, calculate the amount of calories burnt, churn out tips about a particular food item, search for restaurants in your vicinity with healthy food on their menu list, connect with friends on what you eat and more.

Q. Wow, great! Does it have a name?

Yes. Nutri Leaf.

Stay Tuned!

Nutri Leaf: Features and Updates

We presume that you are now pretty well aware of Team Guids which comprises of three young and dynamic students working hard to help make this world a healthier place to live through a Windows Phone App. But wait, it’s not just an App. In fact it is your health counsel. We call it Nutri Leaf. In one sentence, Nutri Leaf is all about collecting nutritional information of a user’s daily intake/diet and providing the right healthy choice of what to consume as food. Inputs like age, height, weight, gender, activity level etc. are assessed including the calories intake too and with the help of Nutri Sense Algorithm, suggestions are doled out to the user on ‘What to eat‘ and ‘When to eat‘.

 

Ever heard of connecting users and the food they consume to social media platforms? Team Guids has grand plans to incorporate the above functionality into the second update of Nutri Leaf since a user does want to be connected 24X7. In short, Nutri Leaf can be called as a Social Nutrition Application.

Nutri Leaf comes with a wide range of features; features which would want you to say ‘This is what I have been looking for’. Read on to know more about them:

 Bar code Reader:

  • When a user ventures out shopping for food, Nutri Leaf scans the bar code of the particular food item which is being bought and lets the user know immediately if the food item is healthy to buy or not, thus helping save a lot of time and money for the user.
  • It has the ability to suggest healthy recipes to the user, based on the nutritional database that gets collected within.
  • Nutri Leaf can display the health rating of the just-scanned food item and also the Total Shopping Cart health rating of that particular shopping event.

These tips provide information on Nutrition, Diet and Health Activities of the Human Body. Users can view tips, like tips or even disable the tips feature by switching it to ‘Off’.
