 iPhone app ($1.99) is perfect you. Simply snap a shot of every meal you eat and log it in this app by meal classification such as breakfast, lunch and dinner. Then, email your daily meal photos to your doctor so they can give you tips on how to improve your eating habits.

Frankly, taking a photo of what I’m about to devour is not going to keep me from eating it. If it looks good, I’m going to eat it. And somebody telling me after the fact that I probably should have eaten half the chocolate ice cream instead of the whole heaving helping, well, it’s just not going to work for me.
