In solving the global obesity epidemic the realization has come that it is mainly an issue of behavioral change. Benefits have been shown in personalizing the information that induces these changes. At the same time obesity is a heavily researched field in which new discoveries are made every day. This brings the need for maintainability of these personalized information channels. In this paper we propose architecture for a maintainable system for the provision of tailored documents for obesity patients.
