|[3:00 PM] Diet Sleuth New Beta Version Available
Black Cat Systems announces that the latest beta version of Diet Sleuth, version 3.0.0b6 has been released. Diet Sleuth is a nutritional database and personal health logbook for the Macintosh. It allows users to keep track of what foods they eat each day, and their nutritional value. For each day, you select the foods you have eaten, and the number of servings of each. Diet Sleuth will automatically calculate your caloric intake, fat grams, carbohydrates, fiber, protein, cholesterol, along with sodium, potassium, and calcium. The new version includes minor changes in the beta testing for version 3.0. According to the company:
You can select from over 5000 different foods from 21 categories, including fast food, lunchmeat, junk food, seafood, and baby food. In addition to the included food groups, you can create and edit your own foods in a separate category. You can also create a category of favorite foods to quickly access commonly used foods.
A built-in Recipe Editor allows you to quickly enter a custom recipe, with the nutritional information automatically calculated, based on the ingredients.
A Weight Manager allows you to track your weight, and compute your percent body fat, metabolism, and estimate weight loss.
Graphing features allow you to easily visualize your nutritional intake and weight over time.
New in version 3.0.0.b6:
- Food serving dialog now directly converts any units to servings.
- Graph dates now display a four digit year.
