With its Health app, the HealthKit developer app,and Apple Watch features. Apple has focused a lot of its attention on the health and wellness field in recent months. Now the tech giant has filed for a patent (number 20190261669) for “methods and compositions to improve weight loss and cardiometabolic health beyond diet and exercise.”
It’s for a weight loss system that guides users in how to eat healthy and match their caloric intake to their physical activity. The system would, I assume, expand the features of the Health app on the iPhone and Apple Watch. Or Apple may have a completely new app in mind.
MacDailyNews Take: The number one problem, at least in the U.S., is portion control. Too many people eat way more than they need; way more calories than they expend. If Apple could somehow help people to reset their idea of proper portions, that would go a long way towards curtailing the obesity epidemic.
