I just wanted to thank Jim for this great piece of software. I have used nut for a couple of years now.
The easy way I can visualize the main nutrients in foods in one screen, backed with the USDA food database, has helped me change the way I eat.
The sad truth is, we just do not know what we are eating and what we need. It took me some short term food deprivation and careful use of supplements before I could better understand the signals my body was giving me.
Guided with this information and nut, I managed to lose 20 kg and have since stabilized my weight at the ideal level, while actually increasing my intake of essential nutrients.
It also made me reconsider consuming several foods I had foolishly discarded as a kid to never try again. For example, it turns out I actually like ripe red tomatoes, rich in Vitamin A and C, and I had been stupidly avoiding them for some silly reason I cannot even remember anymore.
I used to have very dry flaky skin, and something resembling body acne, which has subsided since I decreased sodium, and increased my Vitamin A and C intake. I am still in the process of improving my diet, but the positive results speak for themselves.
