Hint stands for Health Informatics & Nutrition Therapy. It is an advanced health-tech application developed to make evidence-based nutrition care accessible.

Our algorithms and diet plans are designed to reduce the risk of developing complications and mitigate the effect of pre-existing chronic conditions.

They are not meant to replace the treatment of disease but rather complement the normal use of drug therapies prescribed by physicians.

We recommend informing your physicians about the changes made to your diet and physical activity regularly.

All of our diet plans are evidence-based balanced diet charts available through the Hint app.

Listed below are the citations of the key scientific evidence used in developing the Hint app and preparing the diet plans.
