You can have a personal nutrition coach and dietitian at your fingertips with a photo-based fitness app for your smartphone called Nomful.
Designed by 20-something entrepreneurs Thomas Gorczynski and Sean Crowe, Nomful can connect you with leading weight loss and nutrition coaches around the country to help you reach your fitness goals, whether it’s six-pack abs or managing diabetes.
What makes Nomful different from other health apps is its affordability, ease of use, expert coaches, and its photo-based meal logging system.
“Nomful is a nutrition coach in your pocket,” said Crowe.
“We match our members with some of the best nutrition coaches in the country, so members have an expert to hold them accountable to what they eat, and always be there to answer their questions.”
Thomas Gorczynski, 23, and Sean Crowe, 24, developed the app last spring after becoming friends at Miami University of Ohio (class of 2014). They quickly gained attention from the investment and tech worlds.
“We were accepted to the Dreamit Health accelerator program in Baltimore in 2015, which provided resources and connections,” said Gorczynski.
“Through them, we gained financial investors such as Johns Hopkins University and the Abell Foundation.”
Nomful connects its members to top-rated registered dietitians, who provide daily support and feedback on your smartphone through in-app messaging.
“You can keep track of your progress with quick, photo-based meal logging, and you can talk through your goals with quick phone calls with your coach,” said Gorczynski.
Instead of wasting time logging in your meals and other data, you can upload all your nutrition information with a simple photo.
“Rather than relying on calorie counting or focusing on macronutrients like other apps, Nomful relies on picture-sharing to track meals that get submitted instantly to coaches,” explained Crowe.
Nomful coaches are experts in every diet you can imagine. Whether you’re Paleo, vegan, vegetarian, low-carb, high-carb, Atkins, ketogenic, gluten-free, or have particular food allergies, Nomful has a specialized diet coach just for you.
Nomful is free to download, and the first three days of coaching are absolutely free. Afterward, you can sign up for a 21-day Healthy Start package for $49, or a 12-week Boot Camp weight loss program for $199. Check it out!
