Author Geoff Edwards. Its all my own work taking over ten years. Of course it is based on verifiable data and use on a daily basis and the Microsoft application Excel without which it would not have been created. I was not employed to develop the tool. It just developed and I thought that if it was useful to me it could be useful to others. Fortunately, I am healthy, aged 76 and still capable of over a thousand press-ups a week and of performing a complete circuit of 360 degree jumps at Swindon Ice Rink (provided no one gets in the way :). And I weigh a little under 84Kg (update 10th Feb 2019 79Kg).
Accompanying this introduction is a download to a PDF file that reports on the project: Healthy Diet the rest of the website category "Healthy Diet" is provided as a report on the development of the project and other topics.
Important update to Microsoft Excel Diet Weekly sheet V8
I have added two new Microsoft Excel worksheets to my workbook: Iron and Vitamin C. Iron is important in our diet. It is difficult to be aware of whether we are getting enough iron. Too much could be toxic but unlikely unless taken in tablet form. Vitamin C is also important as it helps the body to assimilate iron in the diet. Kale and Spinach have been added .Diet Record Tool v8
My Diet Record Tool is a useful tool to help count calories which is required to monitor weight loss or gain which is under the control of the user. It is also linked to the users age,gender,height and existing weight and their level of physical activity.
Food intake is analysed automatically to provide: carbohydrate, fat, protein, portions of the NHS Five a Day, alcohol units and iron and vitamin C.
according to individual personal data which is required protein, fat and carbohydrate needs are calculated
quantities are based on single items or 100g quantities
data is taken (mainly) directly from the USDA National Database for Standard Reference Release 28
there is a pie chart which automatically shows the categories of food
Please note the workbook has a meal entered for Sunday. This is only included to show how the sheet can be used. Delete that data.
