Niels van Berkel; Jorge Goncalves; Simo Hosio; Vassilis Kostakos

The Internet offers plenty of options for those who want to lose weight. Choosing among the practically unlimited number of weight loss diets, exercises, and pills, advertised as borderline magical, is however challenging.

Our long-term goals are to help people in making better-informed dieting decisions and ultimately reach more satisfactory diet outcomes.
