The company has 1.7 lakh downloads with 1 lakh registered users within four months of starting the artificial intelligence-based diet plan service.
‘It has been four months since we commenced our operations and we have seen 1 lakh users. We have started reaching out to pharma retailers across the country to boost our reach.

‘During the time of the pandemic, the mortality rate has been 10 times in people with comorbidities like obesity, hypertension, and diabetes. ‘People have realized the power of nutrition to lead a healthy life. We are offering diet plans on a partially free basis and the paid plans are available for less than USD 2 per month. We have 125 doctors who have subscribed to our service,’ Manchanda said.
