Doesn't food type matter? A bite of chocolate is very different from a bite of celery.
That's true. However, the caloric content of a bite averages out over the long term. People also tend to eat the same foods week to week, further stabilizing the calorie/bite relationship.
Different people eat different types of foods, for example a fast-food heavy diet versus a vegetarian diet. How does this affect the Bite Counter?
  The calorie/bite relationship can be calibrated using a 1 day to 1 week observation period. Just as different people require different numbers of calories, established by personal characteristics, the calorie/bite relationship can be customized to the individual.
Does the device know what the wearer is eating?
  No, the device does not measure nutritional information.
Which hand is it worn on?
  The Bite Counter is worn on the wrist of the dominant hand, which is what a typical person uses to eat most of their food.
What if a person eats with both hands?
  On average, people consume over 90% of their food with the dominant hand and approximately 50% of their liquid with the dominant hand. In cases where both hands are used, the motion of the dominant hand is often still recognizable by the Bite Counter.
What if a person talks and gestures while eating?
  The Bite Counter can get confused by some non-eating motions, such as using a napkin, adjusting glasses, and some types of arm gestures. However, people tend to conduct the same amount of these types of motions meal to meal, minimizing their effect on long-term tracking of intake.
How big is it?
  The Bite Counter is a small, discreet device. It is smaller than smart watches and fitness watches.
Is it waterproof?
  The device is water resistant to IP code 3.
Can I change the watchband?
  Yes. Any standard 18 mm band can be used.
Do you recommend a Bite Counter diet?
  The Bite Counter can work with any nutritional plan. It should be used to help more accurately measure and track how much is eaten.
How does it compare to other tools people use?
  The Bite Counter is the only tool that provides real-time intake measurement during eating, to assist the user with portion size control. It automates the measurement process to assist the user with long-term compliance to goals, which is essential for meaningful weight loss or maintenance.
Does it shock me to tell me to stop eating?
  No. However, it has an audible alarm that can be set to go off during each meal when a custom-set limit is passed, or a single alarm for the day. The alarm sounds every time another bite is eaten.
Who is the intended user?
  Anyone who seeks help sticking to goals. Fitness trackers help motivate exercise and make it easier to track daily goals. Similarly, the Bite Counter helps movitave portion control and makes it easier to track daily intake limits.
