CalorieKing Launches Universal Version of Nutrition and Diet Manager for Mac OS, Enabling it to Run on Both Intel and PowerPC-based Macs
The CalorieKing Nutrition and Diet Manager is designed to help people lose weight and live a healthier life. At its core is the huge CalorieKing.com proprietary food database. With over 50,000 foods, this food database represents the world's best nutritional information source. With constant access to this much information, users always know what they're eating.
The CalorieKing software allows users to create an intelligent personal profile which calculates exactly how many calories they need to consume on a daily basis while setting goals for calories, carbohydrates, fat, protein and fiber. It also tracks the intake of sodium, saturated fat, cholesterol, calcium and sugar.
With its optional mobile edition for Palm OS handhelds, users can make regular check-ins and graph their progress—anytime/anywhere. Once synchronized with the Mac OS desktop, users are able to print reports, graphs and diary entries. The software also updates its food database automatically, enabling the user to stay up-to-date with the most current food information.
The CalorieKing Nutrition and Diet Manager for Mac OS X is available in both U.S. and Australian versions for US$45.00.
