Preparing Diet List Suggestion with Fuzzy Expert System

Keywords: Diet list, fuzzy expert systems, nutrition, nutritional value


Proportion of disease is growing due to the malnutrition and sedentary life. In this work, a diet list is proposed to the user by calculating the necessary amount of calorie according to gender, weight, height, age and activity level. Diet list are prepared for seven days of a week as divided by six meals. Parameter assessment of users and offering recommendations are made via fuzzy expert system. Prepared diet list are constituted considering calories of nutrients and based on the dieticians’ general diet list proposals. Developed software also includes some functions such as nutrition advices, calculation of ideal weight, information about benefits of several nutrients and calorie evaluation of some daily activities. Thus, nutrition suggestion software carried out against for growing obesity and healthy eating problems in order that people would educate themselves about wellness.
