To maintain good health, people need to take suitable calories every day. The calories needed for persons depend on their personal features, such as gender, age, weight and levels of physical activity. In this paper, we develop a mathematical model to generate optimized diet lists according to individual conditions. To keep a sustainable environment, the carbon footprint related to diet is also considered in the model. Integer programming is employed to help users find solutions and compose suitable diet lists. As the number of candidate items and constraints become larger, the optimization problem discussed here becomes more complex. Given such understanding, a variety of experiments are performed to investigate the influences of some critical factors on the results. Experiments from this study show that the proposed approach can generate satisfying diet lists effectively.
