Inside this colorful app, you will find easy to follow suggestions on how to improve your health through nutrition and the food choices you make every day. This app provides comprehensive and actionable nutrition guidelines for how to deal with PCOS and its symptoms & complications. A number of scientific studies have found a simple & safe treatment of PCOS & its symptoms in diets rich in specific nutrients such as Myo-inositol. If you rather tackle your health issues through proper nutrition and lifestyle changes then this app is for you!

A number of features make this app so different and superior to others in the market:

• Is this food good for me? Answer to the common question about suitability of various food items for your personal situation, in an easy to understand and colorful graphic form.

• This publication is the only one in the market that offers dietary guidelines for PCOS AND its combination with the following most likely health issues: Acne, Anxiety, Cancer risk, Depression, Diabetes type-2, Excess weight, Heart disease, High blood pressure, High cholesterol, Kidney Stones (Oxalate), Prediabetes and Vitamin D deficiency.

• Top-5 items to do or eat, and the top-5 things to avoid.

• Recommendations on the best food choices within a food group, based on your personal profile. An extremely valuable tool when at restaurants or when grocery shopping. Over 850 food items are included.

• ACTIONABLE information on what is good, what is bad, and what is neutral for your condition(s). We single out specific food items, and give you an ordered list of helpful and harmful foods within each food group.

• Suggestions on appropriate life style choices, alternative therapies and herbal remedies, when such options are promising and available to you.

“Proper nutrition and other alternative treatments show great promise in preventing and treating many of the illnesses that we deal with every day. I encourage all my patients to follow appropriate nutrition and research other options for themselves. The Choose This Not That series are an excellent step towards improving people’s knowledge in this area.”

“The Choose This Not That series of apps provide dietary recommendations focused on common chronic health problems. They are easy to understand and thus easy to implement into daily life. Most doctors would find it difficult to discuss dietary recommendations at the level of detail found in the series. They should serve as a valuable complement in helping people manage chronic illnesses through dietary and lifestyle modifications.”

Don't bother.

App freezes and you can't read all of the text in the suggested foods section.

Developer Response

Thank you for your feedback and apologies for the late reply. Please provide more details (what health conditions did you select in your profile and which food group you selected under "Food Suggestions ..."). We cannot replicate the issue that you have reported. Under Food Suggestions ..., we provide UP to 40 suggestions. If within the selected food group, there is only a few items that are appropriate to suggest, then that is all the app will display. Also note that you need to close your on-screen keyboard before tapping on a button, otherwise it might seem to you that the app has frozen. Please send more details to apps@personalremedies.com. Thank you.
