NutriGenie Nutrition for Women for Windows
With today's fast pace, together with the increasing demands from
work, home and family, it is harder than ever for a woman to maintain a
healthy life-style. For centuries, women's health problems were poorly
understood and largely ignored despite the prevalence of serious medical
problems such as obesity, cancer, diabetes, etc. among women and their
unique health status during pregnancy, lactation, etc.
Women need nutritional information that reflects the marked
differences between the needs of men and women. Nutrition for Women
helps users monitor their special dietary needs and consumption:
More than 20 million people are affected by osteoporosis,
most of them women over the age of forty-five. Women are especially
susceptible to osteoporosis because their bones are in general smaller
than men's. There are no symptoms of osteoporosis until a fracture
occurs and, in women, smaller loss of calcium can engender this
condition. Both pregnant women and nursing mothers need to increase
their calcium intake during these critical periods. Adequate calcium
intake is also crucial at the onset of menopause when the abrupt loss of
female hormones leads to decreased calcium absorption and accelerated
Iron deficiency is the most common cause of anemia, and iron
deficiency anemia is the most common form of malnutrition in
women. Anemia occurs when the concentration of hemoglobin in red blood
cells fall below normal. Hemoglobin is essential for delivering oxygen
from the lungs to the body's tissues. Severe deficits in the delivery
and use of oxygen increase fatigability, decrease work capacity, impair
brain function, and lessen ability to maintain body temperature.
In addition, obesity among American women has
reached epidemic proportions. The more severe the obesity, the greater
the incidence of stroke, osteoarthritis, menstrual irregularities,
reduced fertility, fungal and yeast infections, etc. Studies have
indicated that even a modest weight loss can improve the health of
millions of people. The secret of losing weight and maintaining your
weight loss is changing your lifestyle and poor eating habits. With
Nutrition for Women, it is easy to adopt good eating habits because you
will be able to choose from nutritious and natural food with real
flavor. You will be able to design your own delicious, well-balanced

NutriGenie Nutrition for Women is one of our latest and most
comprehensive nutrition software with many of
technologies and analyses, such as star rating of overall diet
quality where each diet is given a star rating from 1 to 5, with 1 being
the lowest in quality. Our ratings take into account the latest
guidelines issued in September 2002 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 — and also include
advice on how much dietary fiber and how little cholesterol or
saturated fat people should strive for to maintain good health.
Previous reports from the National Research Council over the last 60
years have dealt only with recommended levels (RDAs) of vitamins and
