    Nutrition software

    I used to have some software that I had gotten in a nutrition class when I was in college. It would keep track of all of your daily intake, nutrients, vitamins, calories etc. I lost the software in a move and was trying to find something that can do this for me. I am going to start a fitness competition with my wife and I would really like to get a hold of the software to keep track of my progress. Thanks.

    My Dietician wife hooked me up with a program called FITDAY.COM. This program allows you to imput food intake, log activities such as cycling time, weight loss or gain. It's time consuming at first to imput all this information all day as to what you eat but it becomes easier in time. The end result is an excellent food diary, food consumption reports as well as how and where your burning your food. It should do the trick if your willing to data enty all the informatioin. I use it everyday for training and I can pinpoint weight gain or loss of energy while training by going over the reports.

    Thanks!!! I called my nutrition instructor today, and she gave me the name of the one we used in class, if you're interested have your wife take a look at it too. It's called Diet Analysis Plus.

    Fitday.com is a great website. I found it because of this thread. For someone who is interested in what they really eat each day it's great. I've used it for a few days and it seems to do everything you would want to do as far as analysis of food consumed vs. activities. If I stay with it I'll be able to really get an idea of just how well, or bad my diet is.

    It's a bit time consuming to data entry everything into the program but once your into the routine it becomes easier. I use it eveyday and enter food intake, training time and the days weight. I use it mainly to get myself to a proper training/racing weight.

    This allows me to slowly reduce my weight and take my time at getting into prime condition. Most years I would gain 20 LB in the winter then reduce my food intake in March and start training for a season. I have learned to reduce the weight much more slowly so I maintain the strength needed to train. It may take me months to drop the 20 LBS but once I reach the weight I will maintain it and not yo-yo up and down. This program allows a lot of information if you input it.

    yes I agree its time consuming but I think that once I get most of my foods in my drop down list it will be alot easier.

    I like it, but I'm so darned lazy I gave up after a few days. I mean, sometimes I get the eggs on sale and they are large eggs, and sometimes I get the extra large eggs, and sometimes I get the medium eggs. So they're all different nutritional values, and after a while, I kinda slid off the bandwagon.

    Is there maybe a palm pilot type thing I can get my hands on that makes things a little easier?

    That happens, and when you enter something new and the drop down list provides 10 pages of options for the food you ate. I figure if I am close and consistant the information will be fine. If I am off a couple hundred calories in a day it won't affect the overall picture.

    Fitday.com is a fantastic resource, and it's free! Just be weary, the nutritional info is somewhat dated a little off, nothing to get too worried about though.

    There are a lot more intricate programs, a few of which I use with clients. These cost big money and are only really suitable for trainers/nutritionists. One of my programs comes with WAP compatibility which is pretty handy for clients.

    I personally prefer to construct spreadsheets with the info on it. This way you can tailor it exactly to your training rather than relying on generalized 'exercise' components.
