In Detail


The Food Log offers a special page that lets you see how well balanced your diet is today. The page is exactly the same as the "Today" page in your Nutrient Historyexcept that you can view it without leaving the Food Log. (You can also use this page to check your nutrient balance for any day in the past. See "To Change Your Working Date" in Calendar.)


To check today's nutrient intake while you're in the Food Log...


...just click the tab labeled "Your Nutrient Intake."


To interpret the Nutrient Intake page...


...see "Interpreting the Bar Chart" and "Interpreting the Table" in Nutrient History, Your.


Using the WaterMinder™


When you're looking at the table view of the Nutrient Summary, in the lower-right corner you'll see a WaterMinder™ symbol. If the symbol is a cactus, your water intake is short of your goal. If it's a water drop, your intake is either on or ahead of your goal. To get a complete report, open the WaterMinder™ by clicking the symbol.


If the calories in your Nutrient Intake and your Food Log don't agree...


...the difference probably stems from rounding errors. In most cases, the disparity will not be significant. A 100-calorie error represents less than half an ounce of body fat.
