On-Body Sensing Solutions for Automatic Dietary Monitoring
April-June 2009 (vol. 8 no. 2)
pp. 62-70

Automatic dietary monitoring uses sensors to recognize eating behavior, offering vital, continuous infor­mation about a user's food intake. Using this information, administrators can adapt and personalize weight and diet coach­ing programs. The data can also inform nutrition research on diet and eating behaviors.
