Diabetes is an ever worsening problem in modern society, placing a heavy burden on healthcare systems. Due to the association between obesity and diabetes, food journaling mobile applications are an effective approach for managing and improving the outcome of diabetics. Due to the efficacy of nutritional tracking and management in managing diabetes, we implemented a deep learning-based Convolutional Neural Network food classification model to aid with food logging. The model is trained on a subset of the Food-101 and Malaysian Food 11 datasets, including web-scraped images, with a focus on food items found locally in Malaysia. In our experiments, we explore how fine-tuning of the image dataset improves the performance of the model.
