Anyone who has tried to lose weight knows that two things work: diet and exercise. Hiring a personal trainer might help motivate you to exercise, but studies show that keeping a journal actually helps dieters stick to the plan. That's where Calorie Balance Diet comes in. It's a free utility that makes it entirely too easy to figure out just how many calories you need to achieve your dietary goal, and what foods you should and shouldn't eat to help you stay on track. It also helps you keep useful schedules and records.

A simple wizard lets each user configure height, weight, gender, age, activity level, and other variables, and it automatically calculates caloric intake for a range of goals, including maintaining current weight or targeted weight loss. It will tell you just how many calories you need to cut out of your daily diet to achieve your weight loss goals based on an activity level slider that essentially ranges from sluggard to dynamo, so you can get real results even if you're stuck behind a desk every day simply by cutting out certain foods. The Calorie Balance Tracker is a spreadsheet-style database of foods, calories, and other data that makes your food intake abundantly clear. A scheduling tool helps you keep up your diet journal. A recipe editor and shopping list tool make it easy to make positive changes.

Calorie Balance Diet is designed for multiple users, so everyone in the house can take advantage of it. Best of all, it's free.
