Table of Contents

My DRI:  This report shows your Dietary Reference Intakes, as set by the USDA.  Where nutrients are listed, you will be offered a Basic and a Complete view.  The Basic view lists common nutrients, and the Complete view provides a more extensive list of nutri-ents, including all 12 amino acids.

Food Journal Summary:  Use the Food Journal Summary to review your intakes for a day or a period of time that you determine. You can view your intakes by the meal or by the day of the week. Learn more about the foods that you eat by scanning for sources of nutrients that you wish to limit or those you wish to enhance.

Intake Compared to DRI:  Use the Intake Compared to DRI to compare your average nutrient intake to your personalized goals. Recommendations are generated based on your own individual characteristics, such as weight and height, and Dietary Reference Intakes. Nutrients that you consume in excess are highlighted along with those that are below recommendations. This report shows a list of nu-trients, the DRI recommendation, and your intake for the period indicated in the calendars.  In addition, a graphic representa-tion of the percent of goal of your intake for each nutrient is shown. 

Macronutrient Distribution:  The Macronutrient Distribution is a bar graph that shows your intakes compared to your goals for kilocalories, total fat, car-bohydrate, and protein.  Your goal is determined by how your profile relates to the Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Ranges (AMDR).

Intake Spreadsheet:  Use the Intake Spreadsheet to scroll through a detailed spreadsheet of the food and drink that you've consumed coupled with the nutrients contained in each item and an average nutrient intake for a range of days that you select. 

My Pyramid:  Use the My Pyramid report to evaluate your diet based upon food groups rather than nutrients. Compare the proportion of calories for each group to that recommended by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. This report gives a graphic analysis of the food groups in My Pyramid.  Intake is plotted on a bar graph for Grains, Vegetables, Fruits, Milk, Meat & Beans, Oils and Discretionary.  There's also a link to the mypyramid.gov web site.

Single Nutrient:  Use the single nutrient report to focus on a specific nutrient and discover its origins in your diet. Each food that you consume on a particular day or range of days is listed in the report, and a bar graph shows the amount of the single nutrient in each food.

Food Exchanges:  Use Food Exchanges to review your eating pattern using meal planning exchanges. Learn how your food choices are grouped as carbohydrate (starch, fruit, milk, vegetable, and other), meat & meat substitute (very lean, lean, medium-fat, and high fat), or fat (monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, and saturated). Developed by the American Diabetic Association, meal planning ex-changes help people manage carbohydrate, protein, and fat in their diets.  Exchange values are available for each category.

Activity Journal Summary:  Use the Activity Journal Summary to critique your energy expenditure for a day or as an average over a period of time. Learn how much energy you use for specific activities, such as walking or reading, expressed in calories or as Metabolic Equivalents (METs). Your activities will be listed with rate, duration and calories expended.

Energy Balance:  Use Energy Balance to see kilocalories consumed, kilocalories burned, net kilocalories.  A Caloric Summary is shown, indicat-ing Intake vs. Average Intake, Average Expenditure, and Average Net Gain/Loss.

*Each of the reports can be exported to a CSV file (comma separated values, readable in Excel) or printed.

Data Entry

Profile:You can create multiple profiles, change profile information, or delete profiles.  The Profile screen asks you to enter a name, date of birth, sex, height, weight, and activity level.  If you select Female, boxes for Pregnant or Lactating will appear.  The Profile also asks if you are a Smoker or Vegetarian. Body mass index is calculated, based on the data en-tered in the Profile.

Food Journal: An easy to use search engine that allows you to search for foods and enter them into your day as Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner or Snacks.  You can also select Favorite foods and Create New Foods.

Activity Journal: You can search for an activity and add it to your day by selecting the hours or minutes that you performed the activity.  The database includes common exercises as well as everyday activities such as walking to class, typing, or talking.
