After completing a brief user profile, you receive an overview of certain important health markers like your BMI and your basal metabolic rate. Once you have created a user profile you can then begin logging your daily food and exercise have access to NutriMirror’s food and exercise diaries.

DIET and NUTRITION

NutriMirror can be used in conjunction with any diet plan. Each day, you log what you ate and how much ate in your food diary and NutriMirror gives you an immediate report of how your food stacks up against what you should be eating. You receive a breakdown of calories, fat grams, vitamins, minerals, fiber and carbohydrates after entering in a snack or a meal.

It also highlights what nutrients you are keeping in your target range and which ones are out of your target range. For instance, if you already consumed enough saturated fat for the day once you entered your lunch information, then the number of fat grams will be shown in red, alerting you to pay attention to your saturated fat intake for the rest of the day.

EXERCISE

NutriMirror does not formulate an exercise program for you but it computes and reports the impact of all your elective exercises on your calorie balance via the Exercise Log. After selecting the type of exercise, the duration and intensity, your Exercise Log will give you a synopsis of how many calories your burned. You can also set weekly exercise goals and view a detailed report that tracks how well you have adhered to these goals.

CONCLUSION

NutriMirror is an online tool that allows you to track your own diet and fitness progress for free. It was created in light of research that shows individuals who keep consistent and daily food diaries have a higher success rate in meeting their weight loss goals and maintaining them over the long-term. NutriMirror is an excellent and comprehensive program that promotes personal accountability for how your behaviors impact your level of health.

I joined Nutrimirror July 27, 2009. My doctor told me I had to lose 60 pounds. I have lost 43 pounds without feeling like I am dieting. With Nutrimirror it is not really dieting that you are doing. You are getting an education. Before Nutrimirror I knew I was eating badly, I just didn't know how badly! Because of Nutrimirror, I have lost more weight than ever on any diet, and I can honestly say that I can visualize myself going all the way down to my goal weight of 135 ish. Never on any diet did I feel like I could be successful enough to ride it all the way out to goal weight. But because I am not deprived and can eat whatever I want, I can stick with this. Nutrimirror has changed my life. I can't sing its praises loud enough.

Nutrimirror is fantastic! I have been here almost a year and have lost 36 pounds. NM gives you valuable information about your food intake and integrates the calories you burn while exercising into the custom calories suggested for weight loss or weight maintenance based on your lifestyle etc.

Nutrimirror is the BEST!!:) I have been using it since Aug. 09 and have lost 70 pounds. I am in control, no one tells me what to do or eat. NM gives feedback that is invaluable and the journal room is such a great place. I feel like my life was re-started when I joined Nutrimirror!

More than a diet tool, NM is a teaching tool. The lack of a precise plan is a pro, not a con, as it gives you a chance to figure out the food combinations that work for you and to understand WHY you should eat certain foods in certain quantities, rather than just packaging it all up for you. This better equips you to change your eating patterns for better health and maintain those new patterns for life.

Also, its flexible and forgiving. You can have a treat without feeling like you've fallen off the wagon and without the pain of trying to pick yourself back up.

NutriMirror is a fantastic tool, and the site is used by many wonderful people. If you want to see true altruism at work, check this site! The best thing about NutriMirror is not that you can lose weight and become overall healthier through its tools, but that it provides a method to STAY healthy. The emphasis and the tools are designed to be used--easily and quickly--for the rest of your life to stay healthy through informed choices. As evidence of this, many users are not trying to lose weight, rather they are monitoring their exercise and diet to train for athletic events! Some users are triathletes, some are elite athlete cyclists. That tells you it's fundamentally different than simply being a way to lose weight. Highly recommended.

I guess I should add that I have been a user since April of 2009 (almost one year!) and have lost 52lbs so far. I have been averaging about a 1 to 1.5 pounds per week since starting. I have also started training for my first 10k and it has made all the difference (eating balanced meals) in my training. All the lessons I've learned about breaking perfectionist mindsets an *all or nothing* attitudes I have also been able to apply to other areas of my life.

This excellent nutrition tracking tool will support you whatever your nutritional goal may be. Personally, I am in better health and slimmer than I have been in 20 years. I am a nutrimirror user for life.

I have met and exceeded my original weight loss goal of losing 20 lbs. I will continue with NM because it is an excellent tool to assure that one gets the nutrients needed to maintain good health. I have learned so much about nutrition at this site. The journal room provides support and valuable information to help one on a life long journey to achieving and maintaining good health.

I started using this site in January 2010 and have lost 15 lbs! I like that there's not specific food restrictions, and I make the decisions that work for me. I've been recommending it to everyone I know! March is nutrition month, so what better time to start?

I love Nutrimirror. I have been using the site since Jan 2009 and have no intention of ever stopping!
Using this tool has allowed me to drastically improve my overall health, in addition to dropping 45 pounds.
I recommend this site to everyone as part of a LIFESTYLE CHANGE, not just a diet!

NutriMirror has helped me to change my relationship with food one bad habit at a time. Through the support and advice I get from fellow members and the feedback I get everyday from my own personal log, I have been able to break some pretty destructive dieting habits. I'm finally at a point where I don't diet and it is the healthiest I have been. I attribute this to the direct feedback I receive from my log and the loving community! Thank you NutriMirror.

I love being in control of my diet and exercise. I have lost 46 lbs since Aug.09. And feel healthy for the first time in ages. I am grateful to Nutrimirror for complete health redo in my life.

Hey, if a middle-aged woman can loose weight and increase her fitness level without turning her life upside down... this is a winner. You develop 'healthy habits' that become normal for you, no start & stop 'diet plan. I love this, it's addictive and the community is bright, supportive beyond belief, helpful, and knowledgeable. Not the norm out there in dietville, but quite normal for NutriMirror.

The Country Tart

As a NutriMirror user and healthy adult who has finally conquered the obesity struggle, I believe it would be hard to find any community anywhere that shows the success rates that NM does among regular users. Instead of stressing eating less and losing weight, the tool encourages balanced eating and improved health. The community support is second-to-none. The results of this winning combination are a whole bunch of happy, healthy, steadily shrinking (in a good way) people. I am down 90 lbs and while the momentum was all mine, the use of the tool is what made it all possible.

Love it! This is not a diet. It is an aid to make healthy life stye changes that will enable you to maintain your weight loss for the rest of your life. The "no diet or exercise plan" is a pro, not a con, because when you go off diets you end up gaining the weight loss back and often more. Nutirmirror is for your life time, you learn how to eat healthily for you- eating the foods you love, not the foods you are told to eat on a "diet plan" that ends- again, usually with weight gain

This site has saved my life! Seriously, my blood pressure is lower, my cholesterol has lowed by 70 points! This site is so much more than a weight loss site. You will learn about feeding your body with foods that will bring you the nutrients you need without using a bunch of vitamin supplements. Both my husband and I use this site daily. We began this journey with NM in March 2009.

This is so much more than a dieting tool! It is so easy to follow. I have been a member since the begining of Feb and I have not only lost weight, but I have never felt better all around. This tool helps me to figure out the things that are out of balance and when I get them back, tadah, I feel great again.

I have been a member of nutrimirror since last summer. It is terrific. I approach the site somewhat different than other members. I need to eat healthy and lose a few more pounds but I must supplement my diet with vitamins. This site allows me to do this without judgement. The members are extremely informative and supportive. I have learned much about new foods and have invested in trying new grains and recipes. This site is made for those of use that need motivation and encouragement.
