Current solutions treat weight as the root cause of these health problems, rather than a symptom. We believe dietary inflammation is to blame.
When diets just focus on weight they fail to address the complex ecosystem that is your body. Research suggests that inflammation after meals is linked to an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease and other long-term health issues. These make weight management challenging. We focus on how you can reduce this dietary inflammation and improve your gut health.
These responses to meals may lead to dietary inflammation, which has been shown in our research presented at the American Society of Nutrition in June 2020.
We use the term "dietary inflammation" to capture the unhealthy effects that can be caused by what we eat. Excessive blood sugar and fat spikes can overwhelm your body's normal, healthy responses. This can trigger a variety of harmful responses, from blood sugar crashes and hunger to the immune system triggering inflammation.
Repeated often enough these can lead to weight gain and chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. Our studies suggest "good" gut microbes can provide a protective effect, reducing these negative responses and supporting lower levels of body fat.
Once you test your biology we use your results and compare you to thousands of people from our PREDICT research to generate your scores. The higher the score, the better and the harder that food will work for your health.
We reward any meals you track with feedback on how to improve your scores. These nutritional insights include advice on how to avoid dietary inflammation, nourish your gut, control fat, improve your fiber intake, and better sequence your meals.
We've done the hard work to understand the differences in food response from person to person. Our PREDICT studies are the largest nutrition studies of their kind in the world and we’re proud to conduct them in collaboration with researchers and scientists from:
Massachusetts General Hospital, King’s College London, Stanford Medicine, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
