Abstract

The impact of excess nutrition will have an impact on weight gain and the accumulation of excess fat in the body which will lead to obesity. Based on the results of the 2018 Riskesdas, it shows that as many as 21.8 percent of the Indonesian population are obese. Rapid technological developments can be used as a mode of disseminating information to overcome obesity. The development of the Body Fat Calculate application is one way out to prevent obesity and as a form of support for a healthy lifestyle campaign launched by the Indonesian Ministry of Health based on Android which is widely used by the general public. The hope is to prevent obesity through modern digitalization. The purposes of this study are (1) To find out how the role of the Android-based Body Fat Calculate application as a medium of information to prevent obesity. (2) To find out how the response of Android-based Body Fat Calculates application users regarding the appearance of the application. (3) To find out how much completeness of the information provided in the Android-based Body Fat Calculate application as a medium of information to prevent obesity. The results obtained that the application of body fat calculate plays a role in preventing obesity and the feasibility of this application is quite good which is indicated by the high positive responses expressed to its users.
