This is what the prix fixe lunch at Bouley looks like in my calorie counting app (by lizstless)

And therein lies the problem with calorie counting and today’s version of technology used to track calories.

So here’s a solution. Design an interface that doesn’t focus on 100% accuracy, but instead shoots for 90% accuracy. A 2000-calorie diet with +/- 10% accuracy is good enough. All of these tracking technologies should focus on “good enough” not detailed accuracy.
