Growing up you might have heard the term ‘Health is Wealth’, but its essential meaning is still not clear to most people. Our food habits does not have merely one but numerous benefits. It helps us in various spheres of life. So to help you keep track of it we present you The Nutrition Coach , a website to raise people's awareness about diets and it's types. Here person can convert the language of nutrition label and receive access to exercise bot.

How I built it
- It has a trained Dialog flow conversational bot linked to Slack through Exercise workspace.It was built in dialog flow console and integrated to slack
- It has built with Tesseract.js to build an OCR web application.
Challenges I ran into
In the starting it was hard to understand the working of Tesseract.js and took some research and then adding the language functionality . We faced difficulty as it was hard to find the syntax and embedding it as well of native languages.The Dialog flow bot had to be trained and google didn't supported some feature . Slack worked like a charm
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Everything works in the website and with correct conversions.
What I learned
We learnt to build a chat bot , advanced css and Image to text by OCR.
What's next for The Nutrition Coach
We will add a health calculation section, new diet types and a consultant panel.
