The sustainable development and economic growth in Malaysia have cause a rapid urbanization of the country. The urbanization of the country has increased the living standards that has exposed the citizens to various health treats. In year 2006, the National Health and Morbidity Survey reported that there are 29% from Malaysian adults were overweight and 14% of them were obese. Citizens need guidance on how much calories intake for every meal. Thus, the aim to carry out this research is to design and implement a mobile augmented reality application to guide the users on calories intake for their meal. This application will help the users to know the information on the food that ate in order to increase awareness by recognizing the food image and super impose the calculated calories of the food. The system can educate the users with food information instantly instead of searching through the internet. The system has received a positive feedback based on the System Usability Scale (SUS) that given to 15 UNIMAS students. The result of average SUS score has achieved 76.5 among the 15 respondents that indicated that the system has high usability and learnability. This app acts as a digital mobile guidance book that is convenient to use.
