People have started giving preference to their health, type of food, workouts in order to keep them away from health problems. Nowadays Obesity has a serious health issue in adults. Obesity is mainly caused due to improper consumption of food. They can be reduced by measuring the intake of food of an individual. This paper gives a brief description of measuring the calorie value of a food which is consumed by the individual. The system first takes the image of the food. From the given food image the feature like color, shape and texture are extracted by using different algorithms. The Bag of features method is used to extract the features and recognize the type of food. The calorie value is measured using the nutrient table. Our system uses the image processing toolbox in mat lab.
