An application that educates you on what to eat, how to cook it and
keeps you accountable.
We are people just like you trying to fix their diets and ultimately fix their body.
It’s easier than you think if you got the right tools. That’s what we aim to make.
Why did we create Dutrition?
People don’t know what or how much to eat in order to lose fat.
People don’t have the motivation to stay on a diet.
People procrastinate to start being on a diet.
When anyone takes up dieting or even just losing weight, the idea of having a meal plan is mandatory. Even more, you need to have a meal plan based on a specific number calories as well as macros (protein, carbs, and fat).
The next thing you would reasonably ask is, how do you calculate all these stuff?
There are algorithms that actually let you calculate the calories you need for losing, maintaining or even gaining weight. And after that, there are many “macros strategies” out there that give you an edge towards any goal.
The most important part is that calories are the most important factor when it comes controlling your weight. You need to control your calories in order to control the scale.
If you want to be specific with your plan and to have results, in the most bulletproof and fast way, you need to measure things.
Why use a meal planning app?
The most straightforward way to do all these calculations and to reach the level of detail needed, a spreadsheet seems an appropriate solution. And that is exactly what we used for some years.
But if you take a small step back and think this through, you need more than a spreadsheet.
The problems troubling us were:
- What kinds of recipes should I use?
- Are they easy to cook?
- How can I buy the groceries for them?
- How can I track what to eat in order to stay accountable?
- How can I track my weight on a consistent basis and see my progress?
- Is it easy and fast to check it on my mobile phone?
Advanced dieting, needs advanced planning
Along with all this frustration, came the idea of Dutrition.
The vision was that there would be an application that would help you out when you would start dieting. From the part of calculating the calories, you needed to consume, to the part of creating the appropriate meal plan that would fit your goals.
So we started designing how we can gather the best recipes from around the web and make them calorie friendly from a “losing fat” point of view. We then made a super smart algorithm in order to provide you a meal pattern for your specific calories. Lastly, we created a mechanism for letting you track your meals.
Why use Dutrition over the other calorie counting apps?
After covering the basics, our main goal is to make the process of dieting as easy and intuitive as possible. That means having automated scheduling of cheat meals or days with different calories or macros.
But the greatest benefit for someone using Dutrition is that it is the most fireproof way to achieve your goals by careful planning.
If you know exactly what you need to eat, beforehand, then you are planning for success. It’s the only way that would make a meal plan work.
We hope we can educate and help anyone trying to improve his health and body through nutrition. We are also hoping that you could help us make Dutrition a better app for everyone.
