Your Progress at a Glance
One of the most significant benefits of using the OnPoint app is the ability to track your progress. Unlike other food tracking apps that can make you feel guilty for having a "bad" eating day, OnPoint takes a positive approach.
Our App allows you to track things like water intake, weight (if you want to), movement, and your daily targets, so that you can keep your goals top of mind along the way.
It helps you focus on the areas where you need the most attention and energy, empowering you to make positive, healthy improvements.
We love to help you focus on the wins on your journey so that you can feel empowered and successful as you make progress -- step by step.
The big picture of health is more than just a day or a weekend. When you stumble, we won't let you fall. Instead fix your eyes on the bigger picture where you are breaking barriers that you never knew you could.
The app makes it easy to track your meal and snack choices, recommended food group servings, water intake, movement, weight (if you choose to track it).With the meal prep values, if you are a busy person eating the same things day to day or a creature of habit, then these values are saved and ready to go keeping your logging process simple and sweat-free.
We want this to be simple for you!
Even better, with all of this data at your fingertips, you can get a clear, accurate picture of your health and nutrition habits, identify areas for improvement, and track your progress towards your goals.
With this knowledge, not only are you able to make mindful choices with a full picture of how you are doing. Without the logging system you might overlook the mid-day birthday cupcake, office snack party, and indulgent brunch with your friend.
We aren't saying not to do these things! We want you to live and enjoy.
However, when you have a clear picture of what you have consumed throughout the day, week or month, you are able to make more conscious choices with the rest of your meals to ensure you are properly nourishing your body.Unlimited Messaging With Your Coach
One of the standout features of the OnPoint app is the 24/7 access to your personal nutritionist. And yes--it is a real person on the other end. And not just any person-- you are speaking with your personal Nutrition Coach.Many companies have turned to AI to fill their users needs and often you are getting generic advice and from whomever or whatever is on the other end. Not with OnPoint. You are speaking with a qualified professional. You can message your nutritionist directly, and they'll be there to support you every step of the way. Whether you're making food choices at happy hour or struggling to stay on track during a busy week, your nutritionist will be there to offer guidance and advice.
Resources at Your Fingertips
The app also includes a customized resource library and member portal. You'll have access to resources like:
- various nutrition guides nutrition guides
- shopping lists
- weekly meal plan inspiration
- a robust recipe database
- educational webinars
- product recommendations
- exclusive member offers
And even better--you don't have to search for the perfect healthy recipes to add into your routine. We bring the meal prep inspiration to you!
Reminder and Goal Setting
Some nutrition apps offer reminders to drink water or eat a healthy snack.
With OnPoint's app, you are choosing what goals and reminders that you want to make for yourself. No one is controlling your health journey except for you.
With this personalized goal setting system you will be able to set realistic goals for yourself, hold yourself accountable, and keep your nutrition coach in the loop on your progress so they can celebrate your wins with you and make suggestions for improvements when you need them.
This feature will have you feeling as good as when you filled up a sticker chart for your mom and got your prize!
Expert Curated Information
Not all nutrition apps provide accurate information about the nutritional value of the food you consume. Often this is because they are relying on a system that is focused on a calorie counting method where they scan barcodes and take a surface level approach to the nutritional value of your meals.
This can lead to overeating or under-eating certain nutrients.
Your daily targets are calculated just for you, all of the resources, information, and portions are calculated by experts in the field (so you don't have to).
Every good thing has its flaws (or differences to what you expect).
The vast majority of people coming into this system are surprised by the way things are done. But this is actually a huge benefit--because OnPoint isn't just any company. So your expectations are not going to be met -- they are going to be exceeded.
Let us dive into some of the items that may seem different or difficult, and possibly considered a downside if you don't get the opportunity to really give it a test drive.
Okay, let's be real - tracking every single thing you eat and drink can be a major buzzkill. We get it.
The OnPoint app does offer hassle-free tracking and includes recommended food group servings and water intake, but some people may still struggle to keep up with logging every single thing they eat and drink.
And while the OnPoint app is designed to make tracking your nutrition and progress as seamless as possible, some users may find the process to be a drag when they first start.
While tracking your meals and snacks is essential for understanding your nutrition habits and progress, some users may find it time-consuming or tedious. This could lead to losing interest in using the app over time or not accurately tracking your intake.
We encourage you to keep going! It may seem hard and tedious at first, but this is definitely the best way for you to have a clear view of your dietary habits so you can identify areas you are lacking nutrients and areas you can seek to improve so that you can reach your health goals.
And don't worry -- it's really not supposed to be a forever thing, ultimately our goal is to bring you in tune with your body so that you can make intuitive choices for your meals and fulfill your body's nutritional needs.
We want to form habits so you can break the cycle of mindless eating and missing your body's cues.
No Barcode Scanner
This is a big one we get asked ALL the time."Where is my barcode scanner???" "Ugh you don't have one? That is inconvenient."
This is where we bring you back to two concepts we touched on earlier.
Other apps that feature a barcode scanner are relying on an outdated and inaccurate system.
Many nutrition apps have a barcode scanner that can quickly scan food items, making it "easier" to track your "intake".
We feel as though this information is not an accurate picture of your dietary habits.
You could easily hit a 2,000 calorie mark with donuts or well balanced plates. The barcode scanning leaves this out of the picture.
Essentially this data is empty and meaningless.
With our daily target system of tracking your consumption of food groups to meet your nutritional needs, a barcode will do you no good.
Instead we have the complete picture of the nutritional value of your food programed into our database.
No more guesswork or frustration while you struggle to meet your goals because you never knew what you were missing.
So drop the scanner and introduce yourself to the true value of your food.
Dependence on Technology
Some nutrition apps can encourage dependence on technology rather than self-awareness and intuition when it comes to making healthy food choices.
With the increasing use of technology in our daily lives, it's no surprise that some nutrition apps can lead to dependence on technology.
While tracking your food intake can be a helpful tool in achieving your health goals, relying solely on an app to tell you what to eat and when to eat it can be detrimental in the long run.
It's important to develop self-awareness and intuition when it comes to making healthy food choices, rather than depending solely on a program or an app. But that is the whole goal!
As we mentioned, the goal of our app is to create an environment for you to increase your intuition about food and ultimately learn to mindfully consume things that are building your body up and not breaking it down.
It's important to use the app as a tool to support your overall health journey, rather than relying solely on it to dictate your choices like some other apps tend to do. Plus, the biggest benefit of using the app is having your coach at your fingertips in times you need them most!
The app primarily functions as the bridge between you and our team in between sessions so that they can have a transparent idea of what is going on with your nutrition journey.
So fear not - these potential downsides shouldn't deter you from giving the app a try.
We think you will actually grow to love the whole thing. You just have to give it a chance to shine.
With the right balance of technology and self-awareness, the OnPoint app can be an essential resource in achieving your health goals.
Overall, the OnPoint app is an excellent choice for anyone looking to improve their health and nutrition habits. With its positive approach to tracking, 24/7 access to a personal nutritionist, analytics, goal setting and customized resources, it makes it easier than ever to make positive, lasting changes in your life. Whether you're looking to lose weight, improve your energy levels, or simply feel better overall, the OnPoint app can help you get there.After all, the benefits of having 24/7 access to a real, live, personal nutritionist and customized resources may just outweigh the minor inconveniences of having to learn a new system. So go ahead, give it a whirl, and let's see how you can level up your health game.
