What does it let you do?

  • Recipes
    • Create, save, and print your favorite recipes, using over a thousand pre-defined food item ingredients; add, change, or modify your ingredients anytime as needed.
    • Organize your recipes by author, category, number served, and portion size.
    • Easily itemize details on ingredients used; with plenty of space for specific, detailed preparation instructions.
    • Search and view your recipes by name, category, or specific ingredient used.
    • Print out your recipes (both desktop and web versions); create a page numbered table of contents (desktop only).
    • Automatically calculate the nutritional content of any recipe; results shown are for both the total recipe and on a per serving basis; shows calories and grams derived from fat, carbohydrate, & protein; presents instant snapshot of percent calories derived from fat; calculations are accomplished in real time as recipe line item ingredients are entered; “Healthy Factor Feedback” icons provide real-time, stimulating, graphical indication of recipe’s nutritional balance based upon percent of calories derived from fat.
    • Easily modify your recipe’s ingredients to achieve a desired nutritional balance; change the number served, and portion size as needed to reach a desired nutritional goal.
    • Research nutrient values with the included USDA Food Values Database; includes nutritional information on over 6,000 food items; easily create customized food item ingredients from the USDA database.
    • Turn commonly used recipes into reusable “meal item” ingredients; these ingredients can be subsequently updated to reflect recipe updates or modifications
  • Meals
    • Quickly and easily record your daily meals and snacks by listing the individual items consumed; system automatically calculates nutritional information; provides graphical “healthy factor feedback”; data entry is identical to that for recipes.
    • For the days that you record all meals and snacks consumed, you can also view and/or print a daily calories snapshot report with full nutritional detail; and you can even generate reports and charts  that depict your total calories and % fat consumed over a specified period of time.
    • You can use the “ingredients” created from your favorite recipes or meals to minimize meal logging data entry; makes recording commonly consumed meals simple and easy.
  • Exercises
    • Log your exercise workouts and generate instant feedback on the total calories burned.
    • Three, easy to use forms make logging your exercises a snap: Bicycling, Running, and Other Exercises.
    • You can also create printable Exercise Reports (desktop only).
  • Nutrition History Reports And Charts
    • Generate “net daily calories” snapshot reports summarizing, for any specified day, the number of calories consumed, the number of calories burned off by exercise or other strenuous physical activity, and the number of calories you are over or under your target daily BMR.  A "Healthy Factor Icon" will indicate the percent fat for the day.  An estimate for daily weight gain or loss, and current BMI is also presented.
    • Generate "nutrition history" reports and charts that depict your "net" nutritional outcome over any specified period of time.  These reports and charts include period averages for total calories consumed, calories burned off by exercises, and "net daily calories" as compared to your target daily BMR.   A "Healthy Factor Icon" will indicate the percent fat for the period.  Estimated period weight gain or loss is also presented.  These reports and charts dramatically show the net effect of your actual eating and exercise habits.
