The Truth About AI Diets

The future is artificial, right? Not necessarily! Artificial intelligence (AI) is being used more than ever across all areas of life and work, and in the area of nutrition it’s being utilised to create personalised meal plans and provide weight loss coaching. But can AI really help you lose weight? Let’s explore…

(If you’d rather work with a human on your weight loss journey, your can book a complimentary call with a member of our team.)

Can AI Help You Lose Weight?

Yes, like in many other areas of life, AI can be a helpful tool to help you achieve your weight loss goals. However, there are draw-backs to relying on artificial intelligence when it comes to health and lifestyle changes, as we will discuss in this article. 

What is the Artificial Intelligence Diet?

The artificial intelligence diet involves the use of AI to create personalised meal plans and provide weight loss coaching. AI systems analyse data and user input to generate meal plans that align with specific health and weight loss goals. Companies including Google, ChatGPT, and Pi AI are developing AI systems to generate healthy meal plans for weight loss.

How Does It Work?

AI weight loss tools work by analysing user data, such as dietary preferences, health goals, and eating habits, to generate personalised meal plans and provide coaching. These systems use machine learning to improve their recommendations over time based on user interactions and feedback. There’s nothing particularly new in this format, since apps and websites have been offering diet plans and meal ideas for many years, however as AI technology evolves, the ability to tailor programmes to your individual needs is increasing. Speaking of tailoring diets, your might like to read our guide to biohacking for weight loss.

What is the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet?

Growing in popularity in Australia, the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet, created by Australia’s national science agency has introduced an AI weight loss coach named Hope, which uses machine learning to predict weight loss targets and provide guidance to members. The diet itself is fairly standard, but it is utilising AI elements to try and encourage success. 

Can AI Do What a Nutritionist Can?

AI can provide personalised meal plans and weight loss coaching, but for now, it is unlikely that artificial intelligence will completely replace the expertise of a human nutritionist. While AI systems can analyse large amounts of data and provide tailored recommendations, they still lack the ability to understand the full context of an individual’s health and lifestyle, and will not be able to work with an individual to achieve their weight loss goals.

AI Vs Nutritionist: What’s Best for You?

Only you will know what is going to work for you when it comes to achieving weight loss success, however early studies have shown that while AI weight loss coaches can be effective, programmes were more successful when they were combined with human interaction. As with other areas of life where artificial intelligence is being utilised, learning how we can use the tools available to enhance what humans have to offer, rather than trying to replace true human insight, will bring the best results. 

How Can AI Help You Stick to a Diet Plan?

While AI might not be able to replace nutritionists, AI may be able to help individuals stick to a diet plan by providing personalised guidance, tracking progress, and offering reminders. Systems like Hope from the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet use machine learning to predict weight loss targets and motivate users to engage in behaviours that lead to success.
