Tracking Calories The purpose of our system is to allow people to track their caloric intake and/or their food servings in the different food groups (grains, vegetables, fruit, milk, meat and beans, oils). (http://www.mypyramid.gov/pyramid/index.html) We see our main users as the people who exercise moderately and the people who exercise lightly. Both of these groups report that they try to eat “healthy”. We hope that by using our App, it will be easier for these users to track their caloric intake and/or their servings from the different food groups.
