Machine Learning and Ketosis

machine-learning-ketosisVia Hacker News:

Ariel lost 20 lbs of weight and documented his progress using a series of scripts. He utilized the Vowpal Wabbit (VW) machine learning project. The VW project is co-sponsored by Microsoft and Yahoo Research. Ariel had logged his data as a simple CSV file using only weight, sleep, exercise and foods consumed as data points. He then wrote a perl script to convert his CSV over to the vowpal-wabbit traning-set.

He learned which foods, exercise and sleep patterns showed a positive correlation with weight loss. The takeaways from his N=1 study are:

  • Sleeping longer consistently appeared as the #1 factor in losing weight
  • Lack of sleep did the opposite: too little sleep lead to weight gains.
  • Lack of sleep did the opposite: too little sleep lead to weight gains
  • Carbs made me gain weight. The worst were high-starch and sugary foods
  • Fatty and oily foods did the opposite: they were positively correlated with weight-loss
  • Skipping breakfast and Stop eating earlier in the evening before going to bed.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
