Abstract—Because of the saying “Health is wealth”, more people become conscious about their health. The proponents decided to develop a mobile application on “food nutritional daily diet guide for Filipinos. The objective of the study is the same as the researchers’ concern about the increasing number of unhealthy people especially the Filipino youth, that’s why the researchers want to help people to have a healthy diet. The system is considered as effective in terms of its usability, functionality and reliability. The users were able to understand how to operate the system in just a short span of time, indicating that they found it user-friendly. Because of the system’s portability, it can be easily installed to user’s mobile phones without the hassle of connecting to the internet. The users can use the system to monitor users’ health status and food intake or just to check for a food’s nutritional foods. In general, findings of the system were found to be usable, functional and reliable. The proposed system must not consider only the BMI status, calories, and diet plan in giving an advice; instead the future researchers must include other health factors such as frequency of exercise, hours of sleep, allergies and illness. The proposed system must advice also an exercise closely if not tailored to Filipino’s diet plan.

Index Terms—Mobile application, health status, food nutrients, machine translation.
