Multi-constraint algorithm design (complex)

Budget $750 - $1500 USD

Average Bid $1333
Status Closed

I need a meal plan tool which generates a meal plan based on an inputed calorie amount and number of meals.

Basically, I need an algorithm which solves a problem with multiple constraints. The tool randomly pulls food items from a database and modifies their amount in order to satisfy both a calorie requirement as well as a "macro" requirement. The "macro" is the percentage of protein, carbs, and fats in the total meal. The database has item names, protein, carb, and fat amounts per servering. I also have another feature which must be added and I will discuss this in a pm.

I can give you an example calculation in a PM and I will send you an example of what the generator should do. You will need a VERY solid understanding of mathematics and algorithm design to complete this as it is a tricky problem (2 people have tried already). I will need to see other advanced algorithms you have completed for you to be considered.

BIGGEST THING: If you don't have at least 20 reviews. Go somewhere else. Don't Bid. Bye Bye. I don't want to talk to you. I won't even read your message. You have not chance.

This is NOT as simple as a knapsack problem. Anyone who is interested must PM ME with two things: 1) A description of how you plan to solve the problem and the algorithm technique you plan to use. 2) The word 'flustered' in the beginning of the private message. If you have not included even one of these two things I WILL NOT RESPOND TO YOU AT ALL. AGAIN, I WILL NOT EVEN READ YOUR PRIVATE MESSAGE UNLESS IT BEGINS WITH THESE TWO THINGS. If you can't even following these simple instructions, I have little confidence you will be able to complete the project and I will not respond to you.

You can see my feedback, I pay very fast, I am very fair, and I give bonuses for those who do good work. Let the bidding begin.

    Over the last 3 years, I have been working as a statistician in research projects at the Uruguayan University. In this projects I've been working running simulations based on several stochastic processes. I've also done forecasting based on machine learning techniques and linear and non linear models. For those projects I mostly use R and Matlab software. I also have some experience in data entry, excel, and recently I've been helping to develop some websites with Php and Mysql which interacts with R via Rapache.
