Your Food Diary
Fitness Diary offers two different food Diary options to help meet the tracking requirements of more people.
Simple Food Diary
Detailed Food Diary
You can keep your most common foods in your custom food list, allowing for quick entry of your meals for the day.
You can print out pages on both the simple and detailed food diaries for storage in a binder or as a resource for your physician or nutritionist. Our goal is to provide software that is so easy to use; you will want to apply it to your diet plan every day.
Both the simple and detailed food diaries are included in your Fitness Diary subscription. You choose the diary that matches your goals.
I'm using FitnessDiary.com to track my consumption and burning of calories. One of the advantages of FitnessDiary.com is that it continuously adjusts my daily caloric intake. As you loose weight, your body needs fewer calories to maintain itself. Thus, as you loose weight, it is constantly necessary to adjust the calories you eat in relationship to what you burn.
The Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the number of calories each day required to maintain your current weight, assuming no extra exercise. To loose weight, you must expend more calories than you intake through diet, exercise, or both. In the past, my focus has been on how many calories I can consume each day, and that's a moving target! Instead, I can calculate how many fewer calories a day I need to loose a certain number of pounds by a certain date: this is a fixed number. FitnessDiary.com constantly recalculates my daily calorie requirements for me, taking in consideration my current weight, body composition, exercise, and other expenditures. I no longer have to focus on the moving target. In other words, by recalculating the BMR, calorie consumption, and calorie expenditure each day, and balancing my caloric intake and expenditure according to my current BMR, I am making slow, constant changes to my lifestyle. There is no "end" to the diet: when I reach my target weight, I will already be in a pattern of eating and exercising to maintain that weight!"

The Fitness Diary food log allows you to track your meals and snacks, and rate each meal yourself. A little honesty goes a long way when it comes to diet, and most of us know when we are consuming junk, and when we are eating healthy.
