  • The problem of bad nutrition is not due to stupid or uninformed people, it is because people are simply to lazy for a adequate nutrition.
  • Often people are not only to lazy to cook, they are also to lazy to only think about what they can cook.
  • Nearly everbody remembered situations where they went shopping spontaneously ( after work/university etc. ) and had no ideas about recipes or whats in their fridge
  • Some would prefer automatic object recoginition for the fridge, so recipe suggestions would be easyier to realize

story1
The second and more advanced success story shows a guy who does not know what to eat after work. This could result in buying some fast food. Using our system the guy gets all the informations he needs to decide what to eat. The is no need to go home and check the content of the fridge. He can directly buy all the ingredients that make a tasty and healthy meal. Fast food is avoided because fast food is no longer the “easiest” way to get sated.
