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 bone loss.

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 meals that maximize good nutrition and great taste while minimizing fat and calories.

NutriGenie Nutrition for Women is one of our latest and most comprehensive nutrition software with many of NutriGenie unique 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 minerals.
