I am among the increasing number of people who have turned to calorie counting apps to make themselves fitter, healthier, and more productive—or, at least, to increase a few more good habits.Artificial Intelligence
While health and fitness–focused apps are wildly popular and their users are among “the most loyal users in the app industry,” studies have shown that almost all health and fitness–focused apps suffer fluctuating levels of engagement more than any other industry. So why is that?
Or is it simply because just counting calories seems inefficient in keeping yourself healthy.
When I want to lose weight, the first thing I usually focus on is calories and not nutrition.
Sure, the amount of calories I’ve ingested every day is essential, but is it all I need to keep a healthy and balanced diet?
The truth is that your body may need more or fewer calories, depending on the health state. That’s why the FDA recommends everyone to focus on nutrition and not just calories.
Focus on eating foods that have nutrients your body needs
Based on data from the FDA, it seems that most people in the US don’t have enough vitamins A and C, dietary fiber, iron, and calcium in their diet.
That can lead to chronic health problems, heart issues, and osteoporosis. What you want to do is to shift toward a diet rich in whole grains, veggies, and fruits. This will give you a boost of energy and bring in tremendous benefits. Stay away from processed foods, added sugar, and food colorants. It will help make your life a whole lot better.
C9 Companion: an Intelligent Assistant that does more than counting calories.
As I was browsing my Instagram feed, I came across the Companion ad, which was looking for beta-testers who are interested in chatting with C9 (Companion’s robot, a.k.a. intelligent assistant) and evaluating its calorie-counting functions.
A ROBOT than can count my calories, and I don’t have to do anything but tell her? SIGN ME UP!
Hence, I was among the very first batch of pre-subscribers who got in line for the beta testing.
So how does Companion help? The C9 Companion is an intelligent assistant that will help you to keep track of your habits, start a new diet, improve your health, or lose weight.
All you need to do is let C9 know what food you’ve eaten that day. Then, C9 not only calculates the number of calories, but it also offers you all the food information you need, such as fats, sugar, protein, and calories.
On top of that, it also helps you take notes so you can handle your tasks and manage every meal in one place.
The platform itself is similar to the iMessage, and the Facebook message, which makes it very intuitive and straightforward.
All you need to do is text C9, and this cute (very sarcastic, by the way) robot will do all your work.
By integrating artificial intelligence into the mix, the Companion app offers you a unique, compelling way to have a companion that makes you smile, focus, and remain accountable when it comes to what you eat.
Should I sign up?
If you want to stay healthy and fit in the long run, don’t hesitate and give the C9 Companion a try. C9 Companion has now opened its platform for early sign-up for accessing its app before its public offering later this year.Artificial Intelligence
