Abstract

The Calorie Information System is a web-based system for a dietetic monitoring and assessment of calculating and controlling the amount of calories taken per day by the user. In this system, the measurement device is developed to measure user’s height and weight before the system displays the Body Mass Index (BMI), the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), and the amount of calories that should be taken based on a daily basis to the user. The amount of calories will be computed by the system is considering several factors; i.e. age, individual activity and gender of the users. In contrast, the calories consumed by the users will automatically calculate based on the type of food and drinks taken on that particular day. As a result, users can indirectly regulate excessive calorie intake on a daily basis by differentiating the calories required. The entire user’s information is stored in the database server, which are able to be accessed every day. In addition, the health information is also provided in the system as well as an additional knowledge for the user to overcome any problem related to obesity and diet control. Thus, this system offers an alternative method to control calories in their daily life, therefore, reduce an obesity problem and improve the quality of human life.
