Although Energy Diary helps to monitor your diet and exercise regimen, it falls short as an overall fitness planner.
The program's tabbed interface makes navigation a breeze. It supports both metric and English units of measurement and provides options to log your activities, food consumption, and weight goals. The program automatically calculates your body mass index based on your weight, height, and your energy income and expenditures (figured from your food intake and exercises). Like similar applications, Energy Diary has an extensive 7,000-item food database with detailed nutritional information and more than 600 exercises with energy expenditures. Simple charts for energy income, sugar, fat, protein, and cholesterol are nondescript but easy to read.
Unfortunately, the program doesn't offer the assistance in workout or diet planning found in similar applications. Additionally, the trial version restricts the number of users, foods, and activities. Yet another hurdle is that you'll need Java 1.5 or higher to use Energy Diary. While the program worked relatively well, fitness buffs will want a more comprehensive diet and exercise management software.
Change your mind, Change your body, Change your life. Main goal of program is a logging food and activities during day. You can define goal and you can check its fulfillment. Program contains database of 7146 foods with nutrition data for each food. Program also contains database of 603 activities with energy expense for each activity. Both, foods and activities, are separated to logical groups for better access while logging. Version 1.1 includes new GUI design.
