DecideDiet is a new startup on a mission to help tracking recommended sodium and potassium diet compliance in certain diseases like chronic kidney disease, end stage renal disease “dialysis patient”, heart failure, and hypertension. In the US millions live with at least one chronic disease and we know how difficult it is to manage your diet and constantly pay attention to nutrition labels. The old fashion way of providing an education pamphlet to address diet is still largely practiced however the effectiveness of the intervention is yet to be established. DecideDiet is still growing and expanding, stay tuned! We are open to any new ideas or suggestions to improve the application.

We are introducing DecideDiet which has the primary role of educating users with chronic diseases, about diet choices in order to optimize disease control. DecideDiet relying on behavioral modification and smart built in algorithms making consuming your diet easier and fun! No need for manual entry, amount counting, and complex graphs analysis. Forget about reading or memorizing long nutrition labels.

We created a large database of food items with matching bar codes and labeled each item on the basis of food constituents of sodium, potassium, and in the near future phosphorus, using different colors and symbols (for color blind). Your individual unique food basket holds all food you have consumed over time, with a goal being more than 75 % of green, minimal yellow, and NO red labeled diet items in order to comply with the recommended restrictions. The diet compliance is based on the recommended reduced daily consumption of sodium “two grams”, and potassium “two grams”. The recommendations are based on one serving of the consumed item. We labeled green color for appropriate food, yellow - food to avoid, and red – not recommended to consume. The more items you scan the more accurate your basket is.


• Large database of common foods and products from your favorite brands and restaurants.
• Super easy setup.
• Barcode scanner.
• Instant check of Sodium and Potassium amount in food.
• Visual presentation and diary of consumed food.

Ms Shoes ,

Almost amazing

This app is by far one of the best for quickly assessing foods that are acceptable on a renal diet. However, it could be amazing with a few edits. The ability to manually enter the potassium levels of foods that don’t show it in the scan would be great. There are many flagged as green simply because this data is missing and it’s very misleading.
There seems to be no way to add foods manually which is frustrating. There is no way to add foods from specialty markets etc.
I hope the developers continue to evolve this app and increase the functionality while keeping the simplicity and clean design.

Developer Response ,

Thank you Ms Shoes for valuable and detailed review, we are working on adding more nutrients important for users to track, as well as constantly upgrading food database for better accuracy. Please stay tuned!

I notice that some of the same items populate with different recommendations. Example: tuna. One brand came up with yellow/orange and another (exact same label reading) was green. Saw this with beverage as well propel berry is listed as green and red. Really makes it hard to discern which is accurate, especially when learning the new lifestyle.

Thank you learingdaily for your review! Please email our support to look further into this issue

celiac sense ,

Gluten free please

This is a great idea , but needs improvement .
A selection of portion size would be helpful example-1/4 cup or teaspoon etc. I am also celiac so gluten free choices would be nice. My food is a scratch made meal. I do eat out but only at restaurants or bakeries that are dedicated gluten free. I will continue using the app and trying to figure out portions on my own sodium potassium on my own . Almond flour ,brown& white rice flour, tapioca, guar gum, tapioca startch, Corn ,potato, cassava, & chestnut flours.
I do wish you continued success. Finally a very helpful tool to manage basic food intake for a person that eats commercially prepared or packaged foods.
Thank You -Vonda Leiservonma
