Count your Calories (and other things!) with Diet Sleuth
Black Cat Systems announced that Diet Sleuth, their nutritional database and calorie calculator, has been updated to version 2.1.5. According to Black Cat Systems:

Diet Sleuth is a nutritional database and personal health logbook for the Macintosh. Diet Sleuth allows you to keep track of what foods you 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.

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.

Diet Sleuth is downloadable shareware , with a US$25 registration fee.

The Mac Observer Spin: Great, a diet aid that runs on your Mac! That combines our favorite two things at The Mac Observer, eating and Macs. Or are we missing the point? ;-)
