"Glucose stabilization is the key for successful and sustainable weight loss."

"People need a personalized solution for weight management. The Signos platform can help people short-circuit the cycle of excess weight, glucose intolerance, insulin resistance, and the storage of excess dietary glucose and triglycerides as fat.

The best 'diets' are the ones that make you lose weight and that you can sustain. The most effective weight loss apps are the ones that hold you accountable and encourage behavior change.

Glucose is the key link for successful weight loss and mobile engagement—it provides real-time feedback while the app experience builds accountability and instigates sustainable lifestyle change that can result in weight loss."
