What You Should Know
FitDay is an online diet and weight loss journal. There is an online version which is free and a desktop download for $29.99. The desktop version provides some bells and whistles the free version does not and produces more reports.
Using FitDay starts with entering your current weight and your goals. The program then tracks your progress towards those goals and predicts when you will reach them based on your current rate of weight loss. You can update FitDay as often as you want with your current weight.
FitDay allows you to enter each food you eat into the journal and accumulates your daily caloric intake as well as all of the essential nutrients. You can choose foods from the pre-loaded list or add your own if it’s an item not on the list that you eat frequently. FitDay also has a daily mood tracker so that you can journal how you feel each day. This will allow you to go back in time and look at the potential impact certain moods had on your food choices in order to fine tune your weight loss plan.
The FitDay dashboard shows your current day’s calories compared to your target number of calories, your breakdown of protein, carbohydrates and fats and your level of exercise and how much of a caloric deficit it is creating.
FitDay produces many reports but a very useful one is the Nutrition report. This shows you the breakdown by vitamin or nutrient of your daily food so that you can see where your vitamin deficiencies lay.

FitDay can be a useful addition to your fitness and weight loss regimen, keeping you on track with your progress. The amount of detail that you can enter into the program can seem daunting at first, but you can enter as much or as little detail as you want. You can also skip days of entering in your daily journal; however, the reports will not be as accurate that way. We found that the free version of FitDay works quite adequately and you may find that you do not need to go up to the desktop version. The best part of FitDay is that it is visual. The graphs clearly show how quickly or slowly you are meeting your goals and where you might be falling off the program. This helps you to see what impact changes to your diet or exercise routine are having and to be able to get back on track quickly.
