Anyone have health/fitness software recommendations?

I am aware of fitday.com 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.

FitDay

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:

calorieking.com 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 dietpower.com, you can get a free 14-day trial. I think you can get a free trial by CD, but I'm not sure.

The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
