The increased incidence of childhood obesity and the continued rise in the average body mass index in most western societies, with the resultant increase in body-fat related health problems across a wide spectrum of population groups, has promoted the need for maintaining healthy body weight to higher importance, greater significance and symbolic prominence in the myriad of current health issues. Prevention of individual accumulation of body fat can be accomplished by a combination of proper diets and daily exercise, however keeping up these twin recipes for healthy living, requires constancy of purpose and personal discipline that is well beyond most individual capacities. Hence a personalized non-invasive mobile device is proposed that provides surveillance function on the exercise regimen and eating habits of the user, proffers daily advice and recommended course of action in order to assist the user in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It also provides large pool of data for further analysis in order to detect trends and signs of behavioral and health vulnerabilities.
