Weekly diet Excel spreadsheet calculator update
I have updated the diet sheet there was an error in the Fat content list for Bakery Cakes and Biscuits. This category is difficult to ascribe values to. I like ASDA's hot cross buns. One bun of 60g has 3.6g of fat that is 6g per 100g. Calorie content is 190. Richer bakery products need to be recorded in another way. I'll need to think about that. Essentially, the spreadsheet enables recording of food and drink to manage: weight, the balance of fat protein and carbohydrate, and the proportion of fruit, vegetables and other foodstuffs that we consume on a daily basis. Alcohol data is based on an empirically determined maximum daily limit of 15 per cent of calories consumed - eat less drink less.
The Fat and Protein addition is meant to provide a check on our requirement of these vitally important component of our diet. We eat a range of different foods and to provide highly accurate data is unrealistic without extending the list to the point where it becomes unwieldy. Please contact me to include foods I might have overlooked. Supermarkets and Google provide a breakdown of foods but there is still no easy way to make use of that data. My spreadsheet does allow for a recording of food and drink consumed on a daily basis without subscribing to a service. Download diet calculator weekly sheet
