Anyone have health/fitness software recommendations?

I am aware of and the pyramid tracker, but has anyone used a good software program for tracking diet and exercise.? (with hard copy-I would prefer that over a downloadable program-although if anyone has downloaded fitday's expanded version I would be interested in your experience with it.) I am on dial-up (with an older computer) and navigating online is so tedious and time consuming.

hmmm... I don't know about hard copies... I've only downloaded, and can't remember if the sites sold hard copies as well...
I've used Dietslueth... pretty good, though I don't think you can track exercise.

I am currently using diet & fitness assistant. I love it. I have it on my cell phone, which is also a palm device... so I have it with me all the time. I can log in my meals, track my water intake, and my exercise. It will calculate calories consumed and calories burned. you can also track blood pressure. it keeps track of your protein, carb and fat intake... pretty nifty deal. I believe they also make a desktop version.

I've been using FitDay for a while and I really like it. I started with the free online version and then bought the software because I liked it so much. It was only $20 I think. Here's a link to their website:

Add comment has downloadable software for PC and Mac that is excellent. It costs 34.99 i think and is very user-friendly. i use it all the time. of course, you are responsible for recording portion sizes accurately ( i think that's where i slipped up) but nontheless, it's really great.

I am the original poster and am renewing this to see if any new members have suggestions for nutritional software. I am looking for something time efficeint and user friendly, that I can enter and store frequently used recipes in, and that will factor in daily activity and workouts. I would prefer something on a hard copy as opposed to a downloadable program, but would appreciate hearing about any that are good (no portable/palm/cell programs though)
Glycemic Index values a plus. Thanks.

NutritionData is pretty good for calorie counting & recipies (you can create a "pantry"), but doesn't figure in exercise.

I LOVE Fitday!! I also bought the version for my desktop. It's so funny--I always want the little pie chart to be balanced so I find myself eating less fat, more protein, or less/more carbs to make it work.
Logging my food helped me shed about 20 pounds so far. I think any program that shows you what you're really eating (calorie count and all that) will do that for you though. It simply makes you more aware. :)

I use Diet Power software. It has almost all the features you mentioned (time efficient, user friendly, stores recipes, factors daily activity and workouts, but no glycemic values) and can be bought on a CD by calling their toll free number: 800-852-8446
If you download it from, you can get a free 14-day trial. I think you can get a free trial by CD, but I'm not sure.

Oh, I have no recommendations, bro, but it would be very interesting for me to read something. So, if you will find, share, please

My own company needs to have some improvements. Recently from my friend I've learned about Agile Software development, and now I'm trying to implement those strategies to make my company better. One of the main keys of Agile strategies is Pi planing. So I've asked myself: when is a pre-pi planning event needed? You can find an answer to it too if read this article.
