Amateur food photography has risen in tandem with the rise of Instagram, and the Lose It app is capitalizing on social media users' love for snapping their meals. The dieting app tracks users meals, and its new photography feature makes it easier and quicker than ever to stay on top of their diets.

Lose It's new feature is called 'Snap It,' and it works just like taking a food picture on Instagram. Through the app, users can use their smartphone cameras to take a picture of whatever their meal is. But, rather than sending this image out onto a social network, the app uses a neural network to process the image and analyze what type of food it is. According to the Lose It website, Snap It is approximately 87 percent accurate with its predictions.
