Nutracheck is sensible, safe, scientific and reassuringly fad free. Nutracheck relies upon the tried and tested ‘food diary’ approach to weight loss, as various research studies undertaken demonstrate that keeping a food diary doubles diet weight loss*. Nutracheck’s own research undertaken with its members reveals that the more online food diary entries a member makes, the greater the weight loss they record – a fact that fully underlines the importance of consumer engagement in relation to the success of weight loss initiatives – simply put if we’re interested, we’re motivated.

According to NutraTech’s MD Tim Vryenhoef, “When we first developed a food diary on a mobile phone back in 2005, we recognised the value of calorie tracking using a food diary and realised that accuracy and immediacy would be key determinants of weight loss success. The challenge then – as now – was to provide a comprehensive set of interesting and engaging on-line and app based tools that could effectively provide our male and female members with everything they need to be successful without leaving room for excuses.

“Our suite of tools keeps members engaged and interested throughout the EAT, TRACK LOSE process. Being online means your diary is accessible anywhere without the need for attending a weekly meeting or appointment at a specific location. The high level of choice and customisation afforded by Nutracheck system means both men and women can select and tailor the tools and resources they want to create their own weight loss programme. This provides an all important element of ‘buy-in’, which helps towards a successful result”.
