Scientists explain how AI-based chatbots can help you lose weight JAMA: AI-based chatbots may make weight loss easier 00:11

AI-powered chatbots predict the fat and carbohydrate content of foods alongside nutritionists, but are less effective at assessing protein content. This has been shown by a study published in the journal. JAMA Network Open.

Scientists tested the reliability of AI to predict the calorie and macronutrient content (protein, fat and carbohydrate) of 222 foods. ChatGPT-3.5 and ChatGPT-4 chatbots were tested in English and Chinese. The scientists asked them to create a table of nutritional values ​​for raw foods. The results of the chatbots were compared with the information in the database.

No significant differences were observed between the nutritionists’ and the AI’s estimates of energy, carbohydrate and fat content, but there was a significant difference in protein proportion: the AI ​​tended to overestimate their content.

The study results suggest that AI could be a useful and useful tool for people looking to learn about the energy and macronutrients of their food. However, chatbots cannot yet replace nutritionists.
