Linear programing, an optimization technique that is widely applied to solve diet problems, is usually designed to minimize the cost of foods while ensuring a healthy diet. Goal programming, an extension of linear programming, is advanced to handle multiple objective measures. A diet model that cares about personal food preferences by applying the goal programming optimization technique is introduced in this paper: starting from one’s current diet, the model is aimed at satisfying all nutrient targets while minimizing the changes to the original diet.
