Nutritics in Action - NomNomNerd

“Since using Nutritics my admin time has gone down, and I feel I am able to offer a better quality service in terms of diet report and meal plans to my customers. "
14th Jun 2019
Helen Phadnis, an NHS dietitian with over 10 years of experience working in hospitals, holds a private dietetic clinic at Brighton Sports Therapy as well as at the Montefiore Hospital in Hove for the past 6 years, working fully freelance. She is also the Sports Nutrition Tutor to the Sports Scholars at Brighton University and works as Head of Nutrition for Bluecrest, a health screening company. 

“Within all these roles it is really important that I have a user-friendly tool for nutrition analysis. It needs to be accurate, easy and efficient to use and GDPR compliant for data protection. It has to produce an easy-to-understand analysis of results for my customers to interpret what the quality of their diet is at baseline, and what they need to do to improve it. 

“I have moved over from Dietplan 7 to Nutritics just one month ago, but I would not go back. Nutritics is currently my most valuable tool in delivering a quality service to my clients." 

Easy food diary analysis with free app for clients 

Helen often invites her clients to keep their own three-day food diary to assess the quality of their diet at baseline. 

“I can now offer them Libro, the free app that comes with Nutritics, to easily enter the food diary themselves. It is much easier than writing everything down, and more accurate as portion sizes are displayed as you enter the food. This food diary can then be imported at the click of a button into your Nutritics account, forming a report on the nutritional adequacy of your clients’ intake. 

“Graphs are clear, and information on nutrients where there may be a sub-optimal intake can be displayed at the click of a button, along with information on which foods that nutrient can be found."

More time to spend with clients

“Since using Nutritics my admin time has gone down, and I feel I am able to offer a better quality service in terms of diet report and meal plans to my customers. 

“Entering three-day food diaries used to take me on average one hour per client, they now take half that time if I enter items manually, or I can import food diaries instantly if my client has used the Libro app. 

“This means I have more time for seeing clients face-to-face, and putting together an appropriate meal plan. 

“Meal plans are easy to compile as macros and calories are updated as you add foods, and displayed in relation to your clients’ own nutritional targets. You can save templates that are commonly used, e.g. Mediterranean diet, and then modify quantities appropriate to clients. 

“Most useful is the content of the food tables, which includes branded items as well as protein powders and dairy alternatives, which many of my clients report in their food diaries." 

Why choose Nutritics 

“I would really recommend Nutritics if you often analyse food diaries for your clients because 
  • It has a huge range of foods and supplements within its food tables. 
  • Data entry is minimal due to the food diary app, which means admin is cut down for your customer also. 
  • It reports a client's baseline diet in an easy-to-understand way, and you can insert your own logo in there too. 
  • It is easy to create and store meal plans, which in my experience is a valuable tool in customer education, when it comes to implementing diet changes."
