The Machine that Broke My Heart

How did this system actually track calories? Detecting that the user is consuming food seems like a fairly solvable problem; tracking what they're eating - which is going to have order-of-magnitude effects on caloric intake - seems like a much harder problem. 

I can't seen any obvious ways to do it, other than by requiring significant user input, and that would rather negate any benefits that a passive, low effort tracker had.

Am I missing something here?

(Was it a "beep to remind you not to snack" device, rather than a calorie tracker?)
