New Lifestyle App Puts Portions at the Forefront of Weight Loss(May 22, 2012)
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 22, 2012
Piatto, a free new diet iPhone App meaning Plate in Italian, is an innovative lifestyle tool that helps achieve healthy weight loss goals and influence smarter eating. Its the only free portion control app on the market to feature images of real food portions to highlight portion management rather than focusing on calorie counting. More effective than a calorie counter, Piatto offers a database of real food photos with additional tracking tools to help meet nutrition goals and live a healthier lifestyle.
Developed by an Italian team of physicians and medical software developers, Piatto appeals to visual portion control rather than tracking numbers and counting calories. To start, simply enter your age, eating habits and weight information. The apps unique software will then not only help you decide which foods to eat but also how much of it to eat and then tracks actual intake. Piatto also allows you to record exercise habits, upload new photos and track progress on its interactive dashboard. The dashboard visualizes your level of activity and eating choices to help track weight loss progress and further encourage healthier diet and lifestyle choices.
A 2010 weight loss study proves that by reducing food portions we also reduce the amount of calories, carbohydrates and fats we consume and simultaneously increase levels of physical activity. Please click here for a closer look at the study.
