Thursday, Dec 30, 2021 | App Help, Featured, Lifestyle

Hi all! Happiest of Holidays!

We know that this is such a special time to be with family and friends. We also know that this can be a hard time for those of us on a weight loss journey. As another year comes to a close and a new one begins to take shape, we know that a lot of people like to reevaluate their health and wellness. We love that! We thought that it might be helpful if we take a step back, and break down the six weight loss plans that we’re famous for. We’ll walk you through each plan individually and whether or not it might be for you. Then, we direct you to plan-specific resources to help you jumpstart your journey!

It’s probably helpful to explain the general “why” around Healthi and the “what” that we help you do!

It’s a proven fact that tracking your daily intake of food and drink can drastically affect more mindful decisions. This can draw a clear cut path to weight loss! Oftentimes, we simply don’t know or even fully understand, the grave effects that certain foods or beverages have on our body. Healthi has, not only, created a seamless process for searching, logging, and tracking your food choices, but a simple system for goal weight setting and achieving through your tracked intake. One of the secrets lies in our six championed weight loss plans. Each plan differs from the others. Based on your typical behaviors and choices, we can recommend a specific plan for you that will best cater to your nutritional needs. Four out of the six plans operate on a “BITE” system. A BITE is a Healthi app specific food scoring system that we’ve created and maintained. This system takes a lot of different nutritional values into account to simplify the tracking of foods into a distilled numeric value.

Sugar Smart is a Healthi crowd favorite, and the proof is in the pudding! Or maybe the sugar free gelatin? It, too, is rooted in our BITE count system. However there is a unique formula for concocting a Sugar Smart BITE, just like the other BITE based plans.

As one of the most used weight loss plans, Sugar Smart has a high BITE emphasis on sugary processed foods. Meaning that it will reward you for choosing low sugar, whole foods and dock you for choosing overly processed foods. Sugar Smart gives you the flexibility to choose how you want to spend your BITES which is beneficial for those who don’t have time to cook all their meals at home. If you find yourself in the drive through line for a fast food restaurant rather often, this plan is probably for you!

Whether you have a relentless sugar tooth, or are a frequent fast food eater, sugar smart will come to your aid. Worried about having enough BITES to get you through the day when eating out? Sugar Smart will give you enough daily BITES while guiding you in the direction of healthier eating. To get the most out of the Sugar Smart weight loss plan, it is best to choose foods that are low in added sugar and saturated fat and high in protein.
