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?
