Fitatu® Calorie calculator as a tool for diet management in individuals with obesity

Managing diet in individuals with obesity is a crucial element in treating this chronic condition. Who can assist in treating obesity? How can Fitatu® support your dietary goals?

A reduction diet is a method for treating obesity. Changing eating habits is often a challenging process that accompanies the journey of shedding excess weight.

Obesity – Who Can Help?

Obesity is a chronic disease characterized by a high amount of body fat. Excess fat, especially around the abdomen, increases the risk of developing metabolic diseases and leads to health deterioration. Therefore, obesity should not be left untreated; it requires intervention.

Dietitian The foundation of treating obesity lies in changing diet and eating habits. A dietitian is responsible for creating a dietary plan and implementing a reduction diet. With the help of a specialist, the diet will be tailored to the individual. Everyone is different, with varying body compositions, favorite foods, and habits. For these reasons, it is crucial for the diet to be personalized. An appropriately tailored dietary plan increases the chances that the person with obesity will follow it and achieve their goal.

Doctor Obesity can lead to many metabolic disorders such as type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension, and many others. Therefore, it is essential to perform regular check-ups as advised by your primary care physician or family doctor. Any carbohydrate metabolism issues should be discussed with a diabetologist, while blood pressure and heart issues should be addressed with a cardiologist. In the presence of coexisting diseases, doctors often prescribe medications, and you can record their intake using the note function in the Fitatu® app. This way, you can monitor your medication intake and note how you feel after taking them. In cases of obesity combined with type 2 diabetes, a doctor might prescribe GLP-1 medications, such as Ozempic, Saxenda, or Wegovy. We have previously written about the mechanism of action of drugs like Ozempic. These medications can, among other things, suppress appetite and increase feelings of fullness. It is worthwhile to record your feelings after taking them and discuss these notes with your doctor; the note function in Fitatu® makes this easy and reliable.

Trainer Properly selected physical activity will support the process of treating obesity. Any additional activity increases energy expenditure, making it easier to lose unnecessary pounds. It is essential to remember that only correctly performed exercises will benefit your health. A qualified trainer will show you how to perform exercises and can also create a personalized training plan. An appropriate training plan can help maintain regular physical activity and take into account recovery after workouts.

Calorie Calculator – An Essential Tool in the Weight Loss Process?

A calorie calculator is not essential, but it will certainly help you understand how many calories you consume each day. Recording meals in the app will be a great aid in maintaining the dietary plan from your dietitian. With Fitatu®, you can check the calorie content of your meals. If you deviate from the plan on a given day, you can easily show your dietitian your meal log. This way, you control your calorie intake, and a specialist can easily help you change your habits and identify areas for further improvement. With Fitatu® Premium, you can export a file with your meal log and easily share it with your dietitian. Additionally, in the app settings, you can input the calorie needs and macronutrient distribution proposed by your dietitian or doctor. From now on, you won’t have to wonder if you consumed the right amount of protein or fats. The app summary will show you the quantities of macronutrients, vitamins, and minerals you consumed each day. Don’t wait, install Fitatu® and achieve your goals!
