|How to Use Your NBFTE (Next Best Food To Eat)|
|NutriBase can help you select the next best food to eat. Here’s how it works: You first begin recording foods into your daily Food Log. After you eat a minimum of 15% of your daily calorie goal, the “NBFTE” button will appear on your Food Log window.
Click the “NBFTE” button to display your next best foods to eat. NutriBase compares the nutrition from the foods you have eaten so far against your nutrition goals for the day. (By default, this goal is the DRI for you age and gender, but you have the ability to customize these goals as desired in your Client Profile (Professional Editions) of your User Profile (Personal Editions).
Performing this comparison tells NutriBase which nutrients are needed and which nutrients are the most inadequate based on what you have eaten so far today. NutriBase runs a proprietary algorithm that compares your nutrient needs with every food item in our NDI Nutrient Database (see Glossary of NutriBase Terms). The resulting output from this algorithm is a listing of food items. They will appear in your Search Results window in the bottom portion of your Food Log window.
