You may wonder exactly how does Meal Snap work, and how much effort is involved on your part. Take a look at these easy instructions:
1. Snap a photo of your meal.
2. Add a descriptive caption, if you are so inclined.
3. Let the system auto-magically detect the nutritional breakdown.
4. Keep track of your meals & progress over time.
Even more cool, is that you may share your meal information on Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare, check the approximate calories for each meal as well as the full day, take a look at your history to view your past meals and categorize your meals into Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snack, Tea or what have you! How much simpler could it get trying to stay on track with your calorie rationing each day?
Snap a picture of your eggs and bagel breakfast, your turkey sub sandwich lunch, or Cobb salad for dinner and let Meal Snap figure out the damage (or benefit) you have done to your diet. Image recognition, or what have you, is always subject to variation so you may not get an exact accounting of the food you wish to consume. However, in my opinion, any help at saving some time is way better than nothing. Besides, isn't it nice to know that a little bit of magic lives inside your phone!
