The aim of this study is to focus on how to use internet technologies to facilitate the diet-controlled section of the weight-loss program. This online system can provide users to make inquiries about nutritional values and calories for the food as well as calorie absorption and consumption via exercise. Moreover, we not only make use of graphical designs to deliver those nutritional messages to general public, but also implement behavioral methods and virtual learning community to enhance the effectiveness of the online weight-loss program.
