Gluten, Lactose, Allergens, Oh My!

January 17, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

We all have our own nutritional needs because we are different in so many ways. Gender, age, body size, physical activity, genomic variation, gut microbiome and many other factors determine which dietary patterns and lifestyles work for us individually. The greatest challenge is to translate the vast amounts of nutrition knowledge into practical action. How do you know your personal targets for nutrients, food types and lifestyle behaviors? How do you know which food combinations meet those targets? At the NRI, we have developed an innovative online application to support making good food choices based on your individual needs.

Martin Kohlmeier, MD, PhD

Martin Kohlmeier, MD, PhD, creator of this online tool will explain how the application calculates your total energy intake and, based on your individual nutrition targets, acceptable ranges and weighting factors, determines key nutrients and food groups best for you. A search engine then comes up with meal plans tailored to your personal needs. You can even authorize temporary access to personal genetic data just for the calculations without storing this sensitive information. It’s an exciting breakthrough in nutrition guidance in a talk you won’t want to miss.

Registration opens December 19, 2016.
