One-stop healthy eating and weight loss help now in the App Store

Bawtree Software, the Salmon Arm and Kelowna based mobile application specialist, has just seen the launch of Ace Your Diet into the App Store.

Bawtree Software, the Salmon Arm and Kelowna based mobile application specialist, has just seen the launch of Ace Your Diet into the App Store — the first one-stop app with customized meal plans to promote healthy eating and weight loss developed by a Registered Dietitian.

AYD 1Developed on behalf of New Jersey based dietitian, Erin Spitzberg, Ace Your Diet allows iPhone users to get three meal plans in a single app. Ace Your Diet is the first app to provide a ‘true’ meal plan based on user profiles and goals. Whether looking to lose 10 pounds or to make long- term lifestyle changes, Ace Your Diet provides all the fundamental principals of losing weight successfully in an easy to read and navigate app. Choose from one of three meal plans depending on your needs or take a survey and the app will guide you to the right plan to get you on the right track.

Dietitian, Erin Spitzberg has spent years handcrafting these meal plans, which have already helped thousands of patients succeed at weight loss. Now with the Ace Your Diet meal plans, it’s possible to have your own expert dietitian to hand at all times complete with suggested shopping lists, an easy tracking method to meet daily goals without the hassle of searching through lengthy food databases, plus an everyday list of food must haves and must avoids and a weight history graph to keep users motivated. Additionally, you receive weekly tips and daily notifications to keep users on track and in-the-know on some of the best secrets for weight loss.

Erin commented, “The beauty of mobile apps is that they work in real time and Ace Your Diet is a vital pocket-sized tool to help empower those who are overweight or chronic dieters to become healthy eaters for the rest of their lives. I am excited to be able to share my weight loss meal plans with anyone struggling with overeating, dieting or simply for those looking to create a more holistic approach to food consumption.”

AYD 2Better still, research supports using apps to shed weight. A study from Northwestern University in Illinois says that using a mobile app as part of your weight-loss program can help you drop as much as 15 pounds and keep it off for at least a year.

Hugh Bawtree, CEO of Bawtree Software, commented, “We are delighted to see yet another product complete its journey to the App Store. It has been a pleasure to work with Erin on the project and, although our development experience covers a very wide number of sectors, we really do enjoy working with clients on products which can help people change their lives in such a positive manner”.

The Ace Your Diet Quick Start meal plan is available worldwide for free and users can purchase two other customized plans, each for $1.99 or both at $ 2.99 and available at the App Store or by going to www.aceyourdietapp.com.
