Worldwide, 80 million people are affected by eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia or binge eating). With a mortality rate of 17%, eating disorders have the highest death rate amongst patients with mental diseases. During the therapy food journals and behavioral analysis must be brought to paper. This information is of particular importance for the therapy, because it is being analyzed by therapists and patients so that a severe eating malpractice can be discovered and controlled.
