I built this website a few months ago when soylent first went viral, I thought I could ride the bandwagon. I love the idea of soylent but I dont want to eat a bunch of supplements, so I built this tool to help. I use linear algebra and a genetic algorithm to create the most balanced diet from a list of foods. the program can recommend foods and find similar foods. Its also just an easy way to sort/browse the national nutrient database.
When I first started showing off the site it received mostly negative responses. I tried really hard to make it modern, slick, web2.0ish, user-friendly and whatever (to the best of my abilities, web dev is only a hobby). I dont really care about that anymore, the site failed and gets 0 traffic. Its basically just my own slick interface for a cool(I think) algorithm I wrote… and maybe you guys will like it too
