Abstract—This paper proposes design and a prototype for a nutrition recommendation and energy expenditure application. The application runs on the iOS smartphones. The application advises users about daily calories intake and burn calculation and recommends the users how to exercise in order to balance the calories intake and burn. The application gives healthy calories intake and suitable exercise information and supports both of western and Thai cuisines. The application provides body mass index (BMI), basal metabolic rate (BMR), total energy expenditure (TDEE) and energy expenditure for exercise (EEE) estimation to the users that depends on their races and genders. The graphical user interface (GUI) design, full implementation, building, testing, and evaluation are also proposed. The application has achieved requirements and specifications. Finally, we have uploaded it into the App Store and freely distributing to the users with its name is “Calories iCare”.

Index Terms—Nutrition recommendation, energy expenditure, physical activity, exercise, Thai cuisines, BMI, BMR, TDEE, smartphone.
