For a couple of years, I found my weight rising, even though I was eating a low-calorie diet and exercising. At first, my doctors assumed I was simply underestimating my intake. But when I showed them a printout of my DietPower records, they were shocked, because it showed exactly how few calories I was burning.
Tests were run, and it turned out I have Cushing's Disease, caused by a tumor on the pituitary gland. Cushing's is rare, but autopsies show that it is underdiagnosed. Many people, especially women, die of CD without ever knowing they had it.
My weight gain was merely frustrating; the disease could have taken my life. Without my DietPower records, doctors would not have understood that I had a real problem. Your software takes the mystery out of nutrition and lets the user see exactly what's happening.
