Counting calories involves a lot more work than you think. From keeping food diaries that you have to update with every meal and snack to looking up alternatives in case what you just ate isn’t on the list, calorie counting can be a pain. The good news is that there’s an app that’s currently in the works that makes it easier for weight watchers and health buffs.
The project is called Ceres, and it’s basically an app that lets users count calories by having them take pictures of their food. The actual counting is up to the app.
So how does it work? The pictures basically go through a food database, where they are identified. The portions of the food are then determined, along with the approximate calories of the entire meal.
