September 5, 2002


This software was developed in collaboration with Dr. James W. Anderson and his staff at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine.

Dr. Anderson is Professor of Medicine and Clinical Nutrition at the University of Kentucky. His research interests relate to diabetes, blood lipid disorders, obesity and nutrition. He pioneered the use of high fiber diets for treatment of diabetes.

Dr. Anderson was listed among "The Best Doctor's in America" in 1999 and is the Secretary-Treasurer of the American College of Nutrition.

He serves on the Editoral Boards of the following publications: Diabetes Self-Management, 1987-present; Prevention, 1989-present; PRIME Health and Fitness, 1998-present; Editor, HCF Diabetes and Nutrition Newsletter.

Dr. Anderson's HCF Nutrition Plan

Generous fiber intake lowers blood glucose levels, reduces insulin needs and improves blood glucose control. An HCF Nutrition Plan helps control diabetes with diet rather than medicine by reducing (for Type 1) or eliminating (for Type 2) the need for medicines or insulin.

High Cholesterol
Foods rich in soluble fiber, such as oat products and beans, lower blood cholesterol. An HCF Nutrition Plan lowers blood cholesterol and other blood fats by as much as 30%, reducing the risk for heart disease by 60%.

High Blood Pressure
High Fiber intake lowers blood pressure 10% or more. Since the HCF Nutrition Plan emphasizes unprocessed foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, it is low in sodium and high in potassium, calcium, magnesium. Sodium contributes to high blood pressure in many individuals.

High fiber diets promote weight loss and increases satiety. Dr. Anderson's successful weight control approach combines an HCF Nutrition Plan with regular exercise, fostering lifelong weight management.

Heart Disease
People with high fiber intake experience less heart disease than those with low fiber intake. An HCF Nutrition Plan protects against heart disease by reducing risk factors such as high blood fats, high blood pressure and obesity.

This software contains many of NutriGenie unique technologies and analyses, such as star rating of overall diet quality. Each diet is given a star rating from 1 to 5 making it superbly convenient to assess the quality of one's nutrition. After all, the best diet is about more than any one single aspect of nutrition. The best diet should minimally be nutritious, balanced and varied. No software from our competitors can provide the sophisticated nutrition evaluation that ours does.


NutriGenie High Fiber Diet incorporates the September 2002 guidelines issued by the Institute of Medicine, the medical division of the National Academies. The latest guidelines establish for the first time a range of recommended amounts (Dietary Reference Intakes or DRIs) for macronutrients — proteins, fats and carbohydrates — for maintenance of good health. Previous reports from the National Research Council over the last 60 years have dealt only with recommended levels (RDAs) of vitamins and minerals.
