As we have always discussed in Viton, we should not demonize any food and do not necessary in our diet, since the ideal is the variety and a balanced diet that accommodates all kinds of food equally, we all bring significant benefits .

The fact is that this gadget is the pump. This is a bracelet, which incorporates a series of sensors to monitor things like our pulse and our steps, continuously without interruption, and when I say "uninterrupted" I mean 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
And this is it for?

PlateMates | Crowdsourcing to determine the nutritional value of what we eat.
Keeping a food diary is a rather tedious task, which can be much more bearable if we use the power of the internet.
Thus, Harvard researchers have created PlateMates, an online service that uses crowdsourcing to determine the amount of calories you are eating, avoiding having to resort to an expert nutritionist.
His mechanics are very simple. On the one hand, we photographed our plate smartphone, which is posted on the website and sent to anonymous users, to which they will reward you with a few pence in the event that its analysis is consistent.
At the moment the project is experimental, but we must recognize that the idea is very good and getting good results.
Is it the end of nutritionists?
