Nutrition Buddy: Enabling Behavior Change Through Wearables, Recommendations, and Digital Avatars
Daniel J. Chen
Dartmouth TR2016-808

Abstract: In recent years, significant progress has been made in health technology through advancements in mobile technology, wearable computing, and connected devices. These advancements have created lightweight or even automated experiences for users in vital aspects of health such as exercise and sleep tracking. Despite these advancements, one area of health, nutrition, remains stifled by cumbersome user interaction. We present Nutrition Buddy, a novel approach to nutrition tracking which utilizes a simplified data model that allows for lightweight interactions, effective wearable technology, and relevant recommendations provided by a digital nutritionist "buddy" to facilitate behavior change.
