Great blog entry from Ves Dimov, MD, on using the WolframAlpha computation engine to manage your diet:
Imagine if students had the opportunity to compare the nutritional values of lunch options and make informed decisions before ever hitting the cafeteria. . .Wolfram|Alpha provides them with a nutrition label for each item, and shows a side-by-side comparison of nutritional values such as fats, proteins, and vitamins in each food option.
For an example, try comparing a chicken breast to a corn dog.
