A large body of scientific research has proven that HOW we eat is as important as what we eat. Study after study over the past 30 years have established a clear link between eating quickly and being overweight. SmartByte is a tool that trains you to slow down so your body can signal fullness on less food.
Ever increasing portion sizes, calorie packed foods, lack of physical activity, hurried schedules and stress all make maintaining a healthy weight harder than ever before.
Now there is a new approach. After 15 years of clinical research and development, the SmartByte device, the sensor monitoring app and personal coach offer a complete weight management system to put you in control of your weight.
We focused on developing a solution that addresses the root of the problem. Market research told us that the two main reasons people fail at weight loss is because they can’t eat the foods they like and they are hungry most of the time. That approach results in yo-yo dieting that does more harm than good.
Slowing intake, increasing the enjoyment of food and using the body’s built in defense against over eating are what make SmartByte different. The sensor keeps track of adherence and progress so you don’t have to write anything down and your coach helps you change your old behavior.
In a clinical trial, when using SmartByte, users ate 23% less while feeling full and satisfied.
