so I was thinking…

If someone really wants to make a buck in this obesity-plagued nation… the best program that I WISH existed would be a website in which you could just send them in what you’re eating any particular meal or thing…complete with .jpg photo of your plate & portion, if you wish…and THEY would calculate the friggin calories and nutrition information in it and email it back to you. Cheap service on a per-meal send in charge with no obligation to anything, just pay as you send in meals and get emailed back the calorie/fat count and the service would make millions. Why? Because trying to friggin calculate it yourself is where everybody fails. It’s a huge pain in the ass. You never quite eat what is on a box or a site, you eat your own little dish and your own portions. Complex math has never been known to be the everyday-Americans strong point.

So some entrepenuer with the backing and know how get to it, but you must make it affordable per-meal send in to everyday Americans or it will fail. Make it easy to say “hey – what’s the total calorie count for THIS (pic)?” and you’ll do great.
