The problem of computerized calculation of the optimal required diet for an individual who belongs to a certain category of the population and receives various physical loads is being considered. The concept of rational nutrition and the conditions for its observance have been clarified. A general classification of population categories was conducted in relation to the food caloric content daily needs. The existing approaches to calculating the caloric content of food using computer programs are analyzed. Their shortcomings are pointed out. In addition to the calorie content of foods, the supply of vitamins to the body and the individual preferences of the user are taken into account. A project that considers the specific nutrition needs of a person is proposed. A functional structure of the program is defined. An algorithm that calculates the calorie content of a finished dish is described. The choice of the software development environment is rationalized.
