Benefits of the My Intake diet analysis
convenient & judgement free
Getting your My Intake diet analysis is super easy and can be done from your own home.
The whole process takes place online so you don't have to fear divulging your deepest darkest diet secrets in a face-to-face consultation.
Detailed nutrition information
Unlike other diet apps, My Intake provides you with in depth information about the different types of foods you eat; a detailed breakdown of your energy, macronutrient, and micronutrient intake; as well as providing you with helpful tips to improve your intake.
Evidence-based diet advice
The information used to analyse your diet data, and the recommendations provided to you, is based on high-quality peer-reviewed scientific evidence. This way you can be sure the information provided to you is accurate and safe!
compare your intake
No longer will you blindly follow a diet wondering whether all your nutrition needs are being met. My Intake will show you how your intake compares to the nutrition you need in order to stay healthy and function at your best.
Aid medical practitioners
Your My Intake report can give your health practitioner insight into your current lifestyle. This may help them provide you with a health assessment or treatment best for your current situation and needs.
Answer your intake questions
Whether you are wondering if your diet is lacking a particular nutrient, if you are eating enough to reach a certain weight goal, or you're just not sure you have the best diet, the My Intake analysis can help answer your diet questions.
Who can register for My Intake?
The databases and recommendations used in the My Intake diet analysis are based on Australian data, and will not be accurate for foods in other countries.
Ages 1 to 100+
Starting from the age of one, anyone can have their diet analysed. Children below the age of one, or who are drinking breast milk cannot be included as the nutritional content of breast milk is hard to quantify and results will not be accurate.
Your nutrition requirements will differ depending on your gender and whether you are pregnant or lactating. No matter what life-stage you are in, you will be able to see what your nutrition requirements are and if you are currently meeting them.
without a complex health issue
The recommendations and advice provided in the My Intake diet analysis are based on the average person in the population who does not have a specific health condition. People with a health condition which impacts their nutrition requirements and function related to diet will need to see an accredited practising dietitian for a more in-depth and individualised consultation.
