If you want to use these Services you will have to find our chat bot "Forksy" in Facebook Messenger, Telegram, Viber or Kik and start chatting with this chat bot. Also, our Services are available in the form of Alexa Skill and Actions on Google. You don't need any special registration to use our Services.

Forksy is a mobile communication platform that uses a chat bot "Forksy" to help you change unhealthy eating habits by keeping a virtual food diary for you and sharing it with your friends and/or professional trainer/nutrition consultant ("trainer"). These Services allow you to communicate with the chat bot by sending a text message or a photo describing the food or drinks you have consumed throughout the day. The chat bot will react to your messages depending on what you specified as your desired goal; e.g. to gain weight, lose weight, or just healthy eating. Your virtual food diary will be formed based on your messages sent to the chat bot, and will be available to you at any time. You can also share your virtual food diary with your friends or your trainer who will be able to comment on your eating habits and adjust your diet accordingly. Our chat bot will communicate with you in an easy and friendly manner. For example, if you mentioned that you ate a high-calorie dessert for dinner, our chat bot may answer: " Your favorite jeans aren't going to fit if you keep eating like that." If this manner of communication bothers you, please refrain from using our Services.
These Services are intended only to assist you in your efforts in changing your eating habits. Forksy is not a medical organization and its staff cannot give you medical and/or nutritional advice. Nothing made available to you throughout your communication with the chat bot or via Alexa Skill/Actions on Google should be defined as medical or nutritional advice. Messages received from the chat bot or via Alexa Skill/Actions on Google should not be interpreted as a substitute for medical consultation, evaluation, or treatment. This information is not intended to provide specific physical or mental health advice, or any other advice whatsoever, and should not be relied upon in that regard. Under no circumstances will these Service be responsible for any advice provided by your friends or trainer throughout the use of these Services.
