MealDoc: The Dietitian in Your Pocket

The Problem

You want body of your dreams, but you still want to eat pizza.

  • Our modern food environment makes it hard to eat tasty foods in moderation.
  • 1 in 5 deaths is the result of an unhealthy diet.
  • 4 of 5 people in the US will be overweight next year.
  • This means more diabetes, cancer and heart disease in the world: preventable diseases!
  • The planet also suffers from our overconsumption of animal products.

The solution

MealDoc creates an adaptable meal plan and makes eating health easy by attacking known psychological barriers to healthy choices; time, money, mental effort, physical effort, social norms and routines.

  • Mental effort: The app always has a suggestion ready for what to eat next; both for cooking and snacking. Grocery lists and cooking instructions are all seamlessly integrated.
  • Time, money and physical effort: Discounted groceries and meals ordered straight to your door. 
  • Routine use: smart push notifications and user-generated recipes fell the experience fresh.
  • Social norms: Share and edit photos of cooked meals on the apps news feed and your other social media.

With a USDA/NFA-based food database, the app makes sure you get the right amount of calories, protein, carbs, fats, vitamins and minerals to reach your goals

You can't mess up! If you use MealDoc, takes your deviation into consideration, and rewards you for reporting them. It simply makes it impossible to fail with your diet!
