Customized meal plans for clients

Marisa Michael, a Registered Dietitian, talks about how Nutritics helps with the most time-consuming aspect of her work.

What do registered dietitians use nutrition analysis software really for? What impact has it on their daily work routine? Marisa Michael, a Registered Dietitian for 17 years, had a little chat with us to share some of her insights. She specializes in helping athletes and active people to improve their health and performance through nutrition. Owning her own private practice Real Nutritionin Portland, Oregon, she knows the challenges dietitians face and how tools such as the right nutrition software help to meet them head on.

For how long have you been using nutrition software? 

I’ve been using Nutritics for about three years. I’ve used it for a variety of purposes: Beyond analyzing client food intake and creating customized meal plans for clients, I’ve also used Nutritics to conduct research on adolescent rock climbers to determine if they are at risk for low energy availability. This was recently published in Frontiers in Nutrition. Nutritics also was the software I’ve used to create a series of menu plans for a book I am writing on rock climbing nutrition (to be published in late 2019). 

What would you say are the most time-consuming aspects of your daily work routine? How does Nutritics help to reduce these? 

My most time-consuming aspect of work is creating customized meal plans for clients. Nutritics helps me by saving meal plans I’ve already created, so I can use those as a basis for new personalized plans. 

What impact Nutritics has had on your workload/day-to-day work and how? 

Nutritics has helped me be able to analyse client’s meal intake to be able to give personalized recommendations for their unique nutrition needs. 

Which features do you find most useful and why? 

I like the ability to create and save menu plans, as that is a big part of what I’ve needed Nutritics for. 

How would you describe the support received in the past? 

I’ve had to email Nutritics in the past for various support questions, and always gotten an immediate and helpful response. 

Would you recommend Nutritics to a friend or colleague? Why? 

Yes. It has many useful features that are easy to learn.
