Food ingestion is the process of intake of food by human beings through their mouth. The present study mainly focused on maintaining ingestion limit for the intake of food for obese person and intake of extra food for lean person. At every intake of food the device will be enabled and the ingestion is maintained by monitoring the jaw movements using EMG and MEMS sensors. Anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating are the most common eating disorders that are resistant to most drugs treatment and causes serious physical and mental disorders can be identified by this study. Current methodologies used for food intake analysis largely rely on laboratory studies rather than objective observations. The doubly-labeled water is the most accurate method used to calculate the energy consumed over a period of several days. However, it is not capable of identifying individual for the entire episodes. Thus, new approaches for objective and accurate assessment for free living patterns are necessary for monitoring of eating behaviors. The working principles of hardware device and monitoring can be controlled by both manually and by using LABVIEW software. The data could be transmitting using ZIGBEE software to PC and the details can be viewed on the monitor.
