Omega 3-6 Apps use Balance Scores to NIX the 6 and EAT the 3
Recipe Repairs tells you why you should make certain food choices. Omega 3-6 Balance Scores make those choices easy as they give the positive or negative impact that a food item will make on your health risk assessment biomarker, HUFA Balance, which is the % omega-6 in HUFA that can be measured by a simple blood test. Omega Meals is an on-line interactive food planning app upgraded from the earlier KIM-2 software. It combines individual choices into personalized daily meal plans using omega3 scores for food items in its database of over 5,000 foods.
1. Balance Scores are on-line
The Omega 3-6 Balance Scores were designed in 2012. Rapid access for smart phones or computers is at your fingertips at http://omega3scores.com. The scores can guide your personal food choices when you are shopping, planning meals or discussing foods with friends. The downloadable forms noted below let you see omega balance data even when you are out of range of the internet.
2. Simple searchable pdf files
The NIX6 or EAT3 file each lists hundreds of food items to either avoid or prefer. These pdf files can be accessed and scrolled on-line or downloaded as an Adobe pdf file to use off-line. Open the file and select the search function at the top and enter text to search for any food of interest. A very large file, FullSet2012, has Omega 3-6 Balance Scores for over 5,000 specific food items.
3. Omega Meals
Omega Meals is an online daily food planning app at omegameals.com. It has a 9-minute video that tells how to use it for Recipe Repairs. The software helps you find foods that fit your personal tastes and combine them into either recipes or daily meal plans. It shows overall intakes of calories and n-3 and n-6 nutrients to let you know if it fits your health risk assessment goals. Examples of daily menu plans in the working files show how revised/repaired choices can give desired average calorie-weighted scores and estimated health risk assessment values.
