Calorie tracking may be like choreography. Even though food monitoring applications are much simpler than pen-and-paper alternatives, they often get into the hands of bites, slurps and mobile phones.
The tedious meal tasting was eager to make a lucrative profit, pumpkins with calories counting rapidly damaging trade. Spün, smart spoon and app automatically detects, to detect a lot of calories that are being eaten immediately, "Vessyl Smart" won the unprecedented release notes before release. for consumers.
But perhaps the calorie counter of the application does not require any substitute. According to a new paper published in the scientific journal Obesity, people must spend 14.6 minutes a day to control caloric intake for healthy weight.
The authors of the study found that they had frequent control over time to overcome weight loss, how long the inputs went, or the level of detail specified. This is the key, because one of the main reasons is that the calorie counts are highly trusted because they see it as a sinking time.
The researchers signed a period of six months for the intake of food for 142 people by specifying calories, fat, portion size and preparation methods. The most successful participant, who lost 10% of body weight, was consistent in reports, three times a day or more.
Less than 15 minutes after the end of their program they finished their activity. This has confirmed the effects of earlier studies, said Jean Harvey, the Department of Food and Food Science of the University of Vermont and the principal author of the research. "We were not surprised to find that ordinary journalists have done better, but we have never checked before," he said.
It was time-consuming for participants to avoid their diet, but the researchers were shocked: "The details of the diets that they had previously studied were not important, we were still a bit surprised that the" enough "time of recording was so small," Harvey said.
The study underlines that obesity is still in the Americas. About 40 percent of American adults were obese in the 2015-16 age group, over the period 2007-08, and obesity accounts for 18 percent of Americans aged between 40 and 85 years old. In England, the numbers are still smaller. Serious: 26 percent of adults were classified as obese in 2016, a 15% increase in 1993.
Calorie applications are basically digital extensions of diet-tracking techniques aimed at correcting crisis. Their key advantage, however, facilitates this monitoring: they make math and organize your data for you. The previous results, as Harvey explains, should take the participants as their "own report", how much time and how many times a day's diet was followed.
"The current study, using our web-based program and attending our participants, often saw how much time they needed to record with their food intake," said Harvey. "That's why we thought the behavior was very important and very enjoyable for others to help."
The results show that logical action is also helpful: "Dietary self-monitoring is still one of the most consistent expectations of successful weight loss," Harvey said. Dieteros, a long-standing reminder of this ethos, is "write down when you bite me" – Harvey's research is now backed up by something protected. "When we asked for all foods to be written, we could never take a long time. Now we can not," he says.
The analysis includes good examples of LoseIt, Calorie King and Myfitnesspal applications. There are also more opportunities for those who want to promote calorie monitoring envelopes. Scio, Consumer Physics, is supposed to scan an object and know its chemical makeup, for example, to select a banana-rich nutrient.
The number of these available applications is potential. Loseit allows weight, body fat, sleep, hydration, daily exercise, body measurements and nutrients. Depending on your personality, it may be appealing or inadequate. As Harvey claims his personal preference, the results of the research support the use of these applications as powerful, even if they do not claim a technology claim, due to healthy habits. "It probably does not matter how you record your diet if you are interested in changing your behavior, but you must do it every day."
