    DESIGN OF ANN BASED DIET PRESCRIPTION SYSTEM USING QUETELET INDEX CALCULATOR
    Aishwarya Gurupad Kore*, Viddulata A Patil

    This design focuses on developing ANN based diet prescription system which measures the Quetelet Index (Body Mass Index, BMI) automatically by using height and weight, categories it and prescribes diet plan for particular person without help of nutritionist. Calculating BMI is one of the best methods for population assessment of overweight and obesity. Because the calculation requires only height and weight, it is cheap and it’s simple to use for clinicians and for the general public. The use of BMI allows individuals to compare their own weight status to that of the general population. BMI is based on two main factors - height and weight. Height is measured by using ultrasonic sensor and weight is measured by using load sensor. Based on this calculated BMI, the diet plan is displayed on LCD with the help of artificial neural network (ANN).
