Carrieanne: Info on Nutrition Analysis Software

Carrieanne, I looked on the Nutridata website for a way to contact the company and ask if DietBalancer software will run on a Macintosh computer. I couldn't find a way to reach them. My guess is that if your MAC can operate on Windows software, then DietBalancer would run on it OK. Otherwise, it won't.

I also did a quick web search for reviews on DietBalancer. Couldn't find anything that gave much info.

So while I personally like DietBalancer and will continue to use it, I may have to quit recommending it to people because the company provides so little info on their product.

I did find another software, however, that looks quite good. It is called FitDay and I have posted the URL below. Unfortunately for MAC users, the system requirements lists Windows as the required operating system. You might want to take a quick look at the site, however, to get an idea of what to look for in the MAC version.

FitDay can be purchased as a download for $29.95 right now, and may also be available as a CD. It looks so good, I'm giving some thought to getting a copy for myself.

FitDay also has a free version which I am currently using. I find it very helpful and it's not bad for a free program.

thanks everyone

digby, thanks for all this. i looked into the nutridata site too and couldn't find anything on MAC compatibility.

and, when i first asked you for more info about it, i'd already done the google search and found nothing about them. so, i decided not to mess with their product.

BUT, i checked out DietBalancer and signed up for the free online account and i have to say looks awesome so far. if i can religiously log stuff there (as well as here) i'll be golden. and b/c it's all online it does much matter whether i am using a PC or a MAC, it just works. yippy.

thanks to both digby and the other poster for the tip.

How does one sign up for the FitDay free online account?

How does one go about signing up for the FitDay free account (or software)?

I looked at the site, and did not see any obvious way to do so.

Thanks for the link; I was on wrong website!

Thanks for the link to the web version of FitDay. I was trying to find it from the site that sells the PC version.

Couldn't figure out why the sales site would be hosting a free competitior, but it was the best info I had at the time!
