Dieting, or conscientious about tracking your diet and weight? You need this software ....
Weight-By-Date Pro's planning feature will help you determine, based on your height, a goal weight. Then, based on the number of pounds you'd like to lose per week (let's be reasonable: ALL the weight you gained over Christmas will NOT disappear in one week! :) ), it will give you a target date: The date by which you will attain your goal weight if you lose that number of pounds each week.
The user interface is a monthly calendar. You can record your weight, however often you choose to weigh. Weight-By-Date Pro has (1) a journal, where you can enter notes, meals, exercises and measurements; (2) links to free diet, exercise and weight loss information online; and (3) a charting feature that you can use to chart your progress and maintain your motivation.
Over 3000 foods are pre-loaded into Weight-By-Date Pro, giving their calories, fats, and carbohydrate counts. Exercises are pre-loaded, giving the exercise, duration, pace, calories burned, so that you can track the calories you consume. The software will even give you a much needed "pat on the back" if you meet your weight-loss goal over the short term.
Although the software is very user-friendly and easy to understand, it has four interactive tutorials (showing you how to work with all the program's features) and an extensive help file. The shareware version is time limited to 15 days. If you decide to purchase Weight-By-Date Pro, you'll receive free technical support, free upgrades for all future 2.x versions as well as a 50% discount on all future versions, and a 30 day money back guarantee.
As much as I loathe dieting (from one who has dieted all her life), Weight-By-Date Pro is a dieting aid I could thoroughly enjoy. It's thorough, discreet, and fun!
