Abstract -
This system, called img 2 calories, uses a combination of image recognition and comparative analysis to identify meals, fruits from averagedefinition photos. As, the system determines the depth of each pixel in an image, matches the results to a database of nutritional information, and then takes in to account portions by gauging the size of the food relative to the plate its own. In one test img 2 calories was able to calculate the accurate caloric total of two eggs, two pancakes, three strips of bacon, and accompanying condiments.
