HAPIcoach – Lose Weight and Eat Better in Just 5 Days

Now, you can add one more list of the things you can do on your smartphone: improve your diet, lose weight, and get healthier.

We know the basics, like drink enough water, avoid fatty, salty, processed food. But not all of the things that’s good for us we know to do. Thankfully, there are nutritionists and dietitians whose primary job is to know what’s best for our nourishment, and advise us to make the right choices for our health. But who has the time, and frankly, the motivation to really go to a nutritionist’s clinic regularly enough to make actual impact on his weight and overall health?

Enter HAPIcoach – the app that lets you improve your eating habits in just 5 days

HAPIcoach works by allowing you to take pictures of your daily food intake and meals and send them to real life HAPIcoach nutrition experts and registered dietitians to get advice on your daily meals and food choices.

The HAPIcoach app works in three easy steps:

  1. Use your mobile device to take a picture of your meal.
  2. Log 10 meals within 5 days.
  3. Once you achieve this, an actual nutritional expert will analyze your meals and give you tips through a personalized report. Through the app, they can give you helpful advice on your habits and food choices, helping you to meet your goals that you have worked out together.

And for a more well rounded approach to your nutritional coaching, the HAPIcoach app also  integrates with the devices as the HAPI Connected Scale with Smart Body Analyser and the HAPI Activity Tracker, and soon, the HAPI Blood Pressure Monitor. The information gathered from these devices will be shared via the app both for your personal monitoring, as well as to inform your coach about your vitals and progress.

The regular daily communication with your HAPIcoach, partnered with the ability to track your level of activity, weight, blood pressure, and other vital information about you, is a powerful way you can develop good habits and make self-improvements that will make a lasting impact on your health and your overall well-being.

HAPI HAPI Halloween!

Halloween is upon us once again. Here are some tips to help you maximize fun and happiness on this holiday.

    1. Get creative!

If you set your mind to it, you’ll never run out of fun quick-to-do ideas that trick or treaters will love. Don’t have the time? You can create something simple: s’mores with marshmallows microwaved in between chocolate graham crackers and layered with hazelnut choco spread. Add touches like orange sprinkles to get into the Halloween spirit. For something healthier, make tangelo pumpkins with celery sticks for stems. How easy does that sound? If you have extra time on your hands to prep something intricate, all the better! You don’t need a Martha Stewart magic wand to whip up a few out-of-the box too-cute-to-eat concoctions. The good news is, since it’s the time for sweets, kids will eat it even if doesn’t look perfect. It’s the season after all when it’s easiest to patch up kitchen blunders and simply create something ghoulish even when it’s unintentional–and no one will say a word.

2.  Prepare ahead of time.

Cramming is the easiest way to take the fun out of anything, even this extra high sugar glazed holiday. Taking a few minutes a day at least a week ahead to plot out your plan of attack will save you a lot of headaches and keep the fun in the event. It’s a good idea to use that planner you have not touched since the beginning of the year. Or better yet, use a planner app on your phone, so you can map plans conveniently wherever you are. You can check this list of some great planner apps to download this year.

3.  Find the best spot for the trick or treaters in your household.

trick or treatIf your neighborhood is less friendly to kids in costumes at this time of the year, do not hesitate to have your kids join their friends and visit a nearby street where the Halloween activity would be much higher. Chances are, you would already hear about the best go-to places for this occasion ahead of time. If in doubt, the density of Halloween decorations on front porches around town will give you a clue. The kids will have a much happier time parading in their goblin or superhero garb with more kids roaming the streets. And of course, more candy!

4.  Recipes for leftover candy.

Get ideas from this article for things to try. It’s the only time  in the year when you have a surplus of sweets in your home. Sure, candy doesn’t go bad easily, but how about using these to create something a lot more fun your kids will not get tired of? It’s also an opportunity for you to slowly use these treats up to brighten up a healthy but kid repelling meal. This way, you can integrate the sweets into something more healthy, spreading out empty calories over nutrient-rich meals.  If they’re stuck in your fridge or cupboard they’d just stay there for the entire year, lest you snack on them every day for the next few weeks.

5.   Get into the Halloween spirit!

Few other occasions offer the chance for people to dress up in outrageous costumes and even act the part for a night. Think up of some funny costumes, soak yourself in the spirit, and be part of the fun. No other night offers a free pass for being silly, so you have few excuses to hold back.  Nothing gets you in the mood better than trotting around in fun costume you yourself prepared.  And of course, don’t forget to post all your Halloween moments on your HAPI.com app to share with your family and friends!

Picker, Scooper or Data lover ? Which HAPIfork User Are You?

If you’re eating too fast, who’s to tell you to slow down? Like your mom who takes care of you by reminding you to pace your eating, HAPIfork sends you gentle light and vibration signals to remind you when you’re taking a bite too fast.

How is it able to do this? It detects your fork servings when you take a bite of your food.

As people eat in different ways, HAPIfork was cleverly designed so that it can work for most people’s way of eating.

HAPIfork can be configured to one of three different profiles, depending on the type of HAPIfork user that you are. You will be able to adjust how the HAPIfork detects fork servings, based on what works best for your own style of eating.

profiles 2

Picker Profile

This profile is best for people who tend to pick their food when they eat, and would have the tines above the handle as they bring food to their mouths.

Scooper Profile

This profile works best for people who scoop their food up to the mouth (as when eating mashed potatoes) where the handle generally is above the tines when one eats.

Data Lover Profile

The data lover profile accurately detects fork servings for any way of eating, but it is best to be used with a non conductive knife such as a ceramic knife, so that touching the fork with a conductive utensil will not result in false fork servings.

It is advisable to play around with the three profiles during the first few days of using the HAPIfork so that you know the profile that works best for you to accurately detect your fork servings. You can also use the HAPIfork mobile app with your meal (download for iOS or Android) to tell if your fork servings are being counted.

If you want know more about the 3 HAPIfork profiles, watch HAPILABS sales and marketing director Edward Gash break it down for you in the video above, or you can head on over to our FAQ page to get other useful information on how to use your HAPIfork! :-)
