SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- My Dietitian, LLC (mydietitian.com), based in Scottsdale, Ariz., announces an ingenious new meld of technology and human interaction to offer nutritional counseling and professional support. Utilizing the power of smartphones and tablets, My Dietitian enables clients to easily and instantly track food consumption and fitness behaviors for daily analysis by a Registered Dietitian. The My Dietitian app utilizes the camera on the user's device to record entries and create a food diary, which is uploaded instantly via the MyDietitian.com app. Each user is assigned their personal Registered Dietitian who will review the user's diet timeline seven days a week and educate him or her on the nutritional aspects of the foods consumed and provide recommendations to help the user reach their dietary goals.
"We've created the ability for users to have a Registered Dietitian in their pocket, 7 days per week – and through education, we can provide a greater chance of long term success," said Michael Tingey, MD, co-founder of My Dietitian. "Our system encourages better eating through easy accountability, and fosters personal, private relationships with the most highly trained professionals in the nutrition field."
My Dietitian, LLC (mydietitian.com) was founded by Dr. Tingey and business partner Ray Lyons. My Dietitian's evolution is from Tingey's 15 years of experience in internal medicine and passion for creating better personal health through proper nutrition and Lyons' 15 years experience in Internet and digital media companies, mobile applications and online services.
Rick Hall, MS, RD, and Senior Lecturer of Nutrition at Arizona State University, later joined My Dietitian as Vice President of Operations. "We've always known that people who receive regular feedback from a Registered Dietitian improve their diets," said Hall. "What's exciting about My Dietitian is that it has the ability to privately and conveniently connect dietitians with the users; I'm beyond thrilled to be a part of this opportunity."
My Dietitian's objectives are to educate users on their actual diets. Through education, users make gradual and long-term changes to their diet by making informed decisions when addressing their personal diet and nutritional needs. This is how My Dietitian differentiates from all other online diet services.
