Have nutrition, weight loss, or fitness goals? There's an App for that. Or is there?

These days there’s an app for just about everything you need and nutrition is included. But how effective are nutrition apps in getting you where you want to go? Can they take the place of an individualized nutrition approach?

Energy Needs

Apps:
–          track what you eat and how much you exercise
–          compare your energy balance to an amount that is budgeted for you
–          create a budgeted amount of calories for you based only on height and weight
NutriFormance RDs:
–          Test your individual needs based with Resting Metabolism, body type and composition, genetics, how active you are, and if you have any other health concerns
–          make necessary adjustments as you make progress and your needs change
 

Goal Setting & Nutrition Plans

Apps:
–          created to fit the needs of a standard population and general nutrition guidelines
NutriFormance RDs:
–          create an individualized nutrition plan based on where you like to grocery shop and eat out.
–          set individual goals based on what you want to achieve, whether it is losing weight, improving performance or training for an event…. or can combine all three.
 

Timing & Nutrition Content

Apps:
–          do not consider timing of eating which impacts exercise and weight loss
–          do not assist in balancing the nutrients through eat meal and snack
NutriFormance RDs:
–          plan individualized meals and snacks around exercise to optimize performance
–          help you adjust meal timing to prevent starvation mode
–          help you choose foods that are nutrient dense and will improve your overall health
 

Support and Advice

Apps:
–           generalized tips
NutriFormance RDs:
–          target what obstacles or challenges that can get you off track and give you the tools to get back to making progress
–          guidance and expert advice on individualized nutrition concerns or questions you may have
Ultimately, apps are a useful when it comes to your nutrition goals. Unfortunately, they are just that, a tool. Just like the scale. Using it alone will not get you to all your goals.

I have been at Strongside for close to two months. I have never been in a workout environment that feels so supportive and encouraging. I highly recommend Nutriformance for everyone who is looking for a place to belong.

This is the best lifters gym I've ever been to. There is an almost overwhelming amount of equipment on the upper level.

I like the variety of exercises and intensities, but my favorite part is the technology that allows me to hold myself accountable for my effort and performance.

Great local gym. Lots of weights and machines, friendly staff, and not too crowded.

I am so happy I know this place is here now! I booked a massage with Alexis, I had been in need of one desperately from working at home in the wrong chair for the past few months. She was so kind and intuitive and really knew the exact areas to address. I feel like a new person now, one of the best massages I have ever had! I didn't know they offer pilates here as well and the studio is gorgeous. The atmosphere was great and very clean. I will definitely be back soon!

I couldn’t recommend Alexis (massage therapist) enough. She is kind, professional and knowledgeable every time I see her. She makes me feel comfortable and is mindful of aches and spots on my body that might need more or less attention. I feel so relaxed every time I leave and never want the massages to end. She’s great and I highly recommend her!

The reopening protocols that Nutriformance have implemented are identical to those we are currently using in the professional sports world and my confidence is such that I am completely comfortable bringing my 8- year old son in on a weekly basis to continue his training. The awareness of the staff and their sensitivity to our current health situation are of the utmost priority, based on my observations over the last couple of weeks. If you are an athlete looking to gain a competitive edge over your opponents, a young athlete trying to refine your basic athletic qualities or an adult just looking to stay healthy - I would make Nutriformance my first call.
