Bing gets in shape with search updates for exercise & healthy recipe-related queries
Just in time for New Year's resolutions, Bing is rolling out new health-conscious search experiences.
Bing has added new search updates aimed at helping its health-conscious users.
Filters within the carousel make it possible to narrow the search by gender, difficulty, target-area, type of exercise, or type of workout equipment.

Users can also find calorie counts by searching “calories in a cup of” and adding a food item to the search term, i.e. “calories in a cup of couscous” will give you the following results:
Bing says food search experiences on its app are now “even richer” — offering quick ways to find recipe preparation times, calorie counts and more for some of the most popular recipe searches.
