The goal of the Personal Nutrition Project is to offer a science-based solution for maintaining healthy blood sugar levels and addressing global health challenges, including pre-diabetes and obesity.
In collaboration with the scientists from the Weizmann Institute of Science, led by Prof. Eran Segal and Dr. Eran Elinav, I designed the initial app and website helps individuals discover their ideal diet by analyzing their genetics, microbiome, and personal glucose response to food.
High blood sugar levels pose risks like type II diabetes and heart disease. However, individual responses to food vary. The challenge was to determine these personal responses and tailor dietary plans accordingly.
After iInitial blood sugar monitoring the user begins by recording their blood sugar levels over a week to assess personal food responses.
Users log in the app food intake, sleep patterns, exercise, and other activities during the recording week.
The platform offers personalized food response predictions, genetic insights, microbiome analysis, and automated diet planning for tailored dietary choices. This project led to the foundation of the DayTwo company and its service for individuals.
