Center for Health Research
"Keeping a food diary - a detailed account of what you eat and drink and the calories it packs - is a powerful tool in helping people lose weight, according to US researchers. Those who kept such a diary just about every day lost about twice as much weight as those who did not."

Good BBerry Software, Great Customer Service
by a reviewer from Charlotte, North Carolina
"This software is easy to sort thru and a great way to keep track of what you do. The detail around the exercise well surpasses what I have seen in other nutrition based software. I mean most have "weight lifting" but these guys have "leg curls, weighted" as an example, very nice. This was my first time downloading a 3rd party program to the Blackberry - and the support team did everything possible in a quick time to get me up and running! A+ for them."
