We plan to compare the effects on weight loss and changes in the metabolism of general nutritional advice from a dietitian versus more personalised advice based on each individual’s physical and behavioural traits, lifestyle and preferences.
To do this, volunteers will be allocated in one of three groups: a control group, in which volunteers will receive general advice from a dietitian about how to improve their diet, a personalised nutrition group, in which participants will use the PREVENTOMICS’ app alongside a dietitian to receive a personalised diet plan and the personalised plan group, in which, in addition to advice from the dietitian and a personalised diet through the use PREVENTOMICS’ app, will also receive prompts to help change food and lifestyle choices.
