My Calorie Counter: Right for You?

By Terry Dunkle, DietPower Editor-In-Chief*

My calorie counter, called DietPowerŽ, began in 1988 when I got tired of counting calories by hand and couldn't find a good program that would track my calories on my computer. Today DietPower is one of the most popular programs of its type.

DietPower isn't for everyone, but it offers a number of features that other programs lack. Here are its most distinguishing traits:

My Calorie Counter Guarantees Your Goal

As far as we know, DietPower is the only calorie counter that guarantees reaching your goal weight on your target date if you are faithful to your daily calorie budget. That's because the program automatically adjusts the budget to your personal metabolism, which it monitors by comparing your weight change with your eating history. (You can choose a constant calorie budget instead, if you prefer.)

DietPower is also unique in adjusting for water retention from sodium intake or menstruation, as well as water loss from high-temperature exercise.

My Calorie Counter Watches More Than Calories

Besides calories, DietPower monitors 32 other nutrients, including five types of fat, three kinds of carbohydrate, nine vitamins, ten minerals, and water.

DietPower also displays a Nutrition Quotient™ indicating how well your nutrient intake matches the ideal for your age, sex, size, and other factors.

In addition, the program awards extra calories for 1,000 kinds of exercise.

My Calorie Counter Is Fast

Because the average dieter logs 20 to 35 different foods each day, we designed DietPower to require a minimum of clicks and almost no scrolling to find any food. Its Smart Search function automatically puts any food you've logged recently at the top of your Found list. And because you install the program on your own computer, you don't have to wait precious seconds for your data to travel back and forth to the Web. (Keeping your records on your computer also guarantees greater privacy.)

My Calorie Counter "Knows" You

DietPower not only learns your metabolism, but remembers your favorite foods and tells you which of them will most improve your nutrition. It takes your current weight into account when calculating the calories you burn in exercise. It also delivers daily advice tailored to your health interests.

My Calorie Counter Respects You

We know you have to budget your time and money. DietPower offers both phone and email support. All of our support people are native English speakers who use the program themselves.

My Calorie Counter Is Free

DietPower's latest version (4.4) is now absolutely free, with no strings attached.
