Submission + - Lose weight by taking pictures (

snatchitup writes: Here's a pretty simple Droid app (KalorieQ) that basically is a photo based diet log. You take a picture each time you eat something. Then, the image is uploaded to an online web site database. Casual visitors to the web site can see what you ate (anonymously) and take a guess at how many calories your meal is. On the Droid app, your log is updated to tell you how many calories you've eaten. Either based on what you said the calories were, or, what the average estimate was from the visitors to the web site. It's kinds of like a game. But, the idea is that it's a cool, fun, and easy way to keep track of your diet, which may in turn help you stick with it.
