Based on Years of Research

We've worked hard for years to figure out how to best use wisdom of the crowd to provide personalised, trustworthy decision support [1]. Moreover, specifically when it comes to weight loss diets, our tool compares well against Google in terms of user satisfaction and how fast people can find trustworthy personalised solutions [2].

But since we offer an embeddable widget with a lot of customisable elements, a creative webmaster such as you can leverage the plugin in very useful (and in the right hands extremely lucrative) ways!

Why The Scientific Diet Selector?


Scientific Approach

The method is based on a scientifically validated decision support concept.


Data-driven Tool

We mine insights from crowdsourced data, to find the best matching diets.


External expertise

We provide links to external resources, to learn more and discover food plans.

Said by our beta-testers:

"It's an easy and fast way to find a diet! The system is really user friendly, and instead of choosing for you, it gives you a list of diets that might fit you! I also like the "affordability" factor, which Is the first time I see applied to diets. I also find really interesting the fact that there's a lot of new diets that I had never heard about!"

"Provides me with several choices and information about these diets. Very simple and intuitive!"
