Editors' Review


Kathleen's Diet Planner includes nearly every tool to help you monitor your overall health and nutrition, but little has been done to soften the look of this database-driven application. The initial interface is crowded, as are many of the windows for the various features, and it isn't clear how to get started. The publisher's Web site does contain 20 videos that walk you through literally each step of using the program, and the help file is exhaustive.

Kathleen's Diet Planner can track and chart a number of diet- and health-related details, including weight, blood pressure, measurements, and cholesterol. It has an impressive 40,000-plus food database, and comes with a shopping-list organizer to help you stay on track when you head to the grocery. The built-in reports are comprehensive, but you can also build your own. The trial version restricts the number of foods per day and the number of recipes you can add. It also has a hefty 15MB download. Database-savvy users will reap the most benefit from this comprehensive diet and nutrition manager.

"Best diet planner ever - Great customer service"

Easy to add new foods or to use the standard government databases from the US and Canada.

Detailed and very adaptable to one person or 20 or more. Easy to copy meals, foods or meals for a day to anybody else's diet or to a new day for one person. The Favorite foods table is easy to modify for one's own kitchen but the huge database of foods from both Canadian and US sources is there if I want complete nutrition that goes way beyond food labels for something. It is easy to add a food from there to the favorite foods lists.

The program also tracks exercise, blood glucose, cholesterol, medications, blood pressure, and many other variables for all sorts of circumstances. It can be as detailed or as simple as one wishes.

Customer service is excellent and the author often adds requests from customers to the software.

This is the program for anybody who takes their diet or the diets of others seriously. Nothing else even comes close.


I can't think of any negatives. I've used it on a daily basis over many versions of Windows for years and I've not found parts of the program that break. It is very stable. There are very few programs I have kept over several versions and multiple platforms - only Quicken Premium is in the same league and I'm not so sure about the latest Quicken. :)


I've never met the author of the program except for a few exchanged emails but he has always met my suggestions or gotten me easily back in operation after a computer disaster. I can't think of another software company that has treated me so well and I have dealt with many as a computer professional.

I am a retiree and have been using the program for years since version 14. It works well for anyone who can handle Excel, Access or other standard database software. I've even converted my doctor to being a chart person - he now adds the charts I provide to my file.
