I’ve been wanting to write this post for some time. It deals with the way that the Skinnier Me App works. The app uses data science to calculate all of the things that you need to do in order to lose weight. In fact, the cool thing is that it was designed with AI first approach.
So what does it actually do?
It takes in your data, like your weight, and your height, the number of calories that you consume, the amount of exercise that you record, and we put it all into a machine learning algorithm.
This algorithm predicts a bunch of really cool things. For example, it predicts your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate). That is an important value. It also calculates how much energy you burn doing different types of exercise. We then combine all of that data in such a way that we build out custom plans.
The other nice thing is that we don’t just have one master algorithm. We train an algorithm just for you. That’s right, each and every app user has their own custom algorithm. That means that everything that we recommend to you, is just for you. It isn’t for me, or for Joe, or for Suzy. It is strictly for you! It isn’t for anyone else.
That’s kind of cool! Think about that. It is like having a trainer personalize and customize a weight loss plan just for you!
Of course you are going to start losing weight. It will just seem to melt away like magic. So essentially, here at Skinnier Me, we are using the power of data science to hack your body. We look at your data and see what works and what doesn’t and we come up with something just for you.
I think that’s truly amazing!
