Seeking your reviews/feedback ... and help to spread the word for new book titled Healthy Bytes.
Healthy Bytes espouses eSkills and (personalized) Tools for weight-loss… because (it is argued), “motivation alone is NOT enough.”
Emphasizing customization, Healthy Bytes provides a suite of “Mi” tools (freely downloadable from book’s website) to help dieters do the three things that they need to do well to succeed: (1) Setting a realistic weight-loss goal; (2) determining the proper (individually-tailored) caloric deficit to achieve it; and (3) devising palatable and satisfying diets that can be sustained.
Mi Model—an “intimate” energy balance calculator (actually a “simulator”) that captures individual differences such as body composition and lifestyle preferences—dieting versus exercising). The Benefit: much improved accuracy.
Mi Energy Density Polar Plot—a nutritional “map” to help dieters: (1) visualize where they are nutritionally; and (2) chart promising directions for improvement. It is a compact graphic that integrates the key determinants of a proper diet—energy density, total meal weight (which is the key to what makes us feel satisfied) and total calories (the driver of weight loss/gain).
Mi Volumetrics— a tool to help dieters compose optimized meal plans that maximize meal weight (and thus satiety) while abiding by other dietary constraints (e.g., caloric ceiling, macronutrient composition, the amount of calories from fat, etc.).
