Hello? Will this make me fat?
…It was inevitable. All technologies, lifestyles, gadgets, and ideas are now one big wad.
…You can now take a picture of your meal, send it to a website, and see how many calories and nutrients it has.
…Makes sense. The cell phone companies are providing the health advice.
…Nutritionists are a little more cautious. How accurate can they be about portion size and content over a cell phone?
…Sprint Nextel amd MyFood Nutrition, a Quebec-based company (eh), have launched MyFoodPhone. The service costs $9.99 a month.
…Cingular Wireless offers Atkins2Go.
…Verizon has SkynetMD Diet Fitness Diary.
…On some, you can dial up a written calorie count. Not all eyeball your food choices via images.
…Will you be sitting in front of a burger soon and think, “Better call this in”?
