Now there is good news for dieters who use mobile phones. We have been using mobile phones for talking and Internet surfing. Now they can be used for taking the valuable advice to achieve weight loss goals.
Some Japanese have been using their mobile phones for taking their eaten diet photos and send them to Nutrition’s experts for further advice. As the mobile phones are very common in Japan and people awareness about increasing weight problem, The health experts have put both together so that the dieters can send their food portion photos and can receive useful results and suggestions.
According to Dr. Yutaka Kimura, previously dieters fill their diet information in many online food journals. Bu they forgot to mention many of things and even misjudge the portion size they are. But with exact meals food, they will get more exact results.
The waistline size is increasing in Japan with the size of meals and fried foods. According to health ministry last year estimation, more than 50 percent of men and one out of five between the age of 40 and 70 were at risk of metabolic syndrome.
Now health ministry is hoping now mobile phone will help in reducing the risk of metabolic syndrome to some extent. I personally feel getting advice from a nutrition expert with photos is far better than what we were doing earlier (From International Herald Tribune).
