Keeping a food diary is a frequently used way to take a very realistic look at what we eat and how much we eat throughout the course of the day. Not only does it make you accountable for every morsel of food you put into your mouth, but this meticulous and often illuminating food exercise causes us to pause before we reach for a handful of this or that.
For anyone who is at a loss as to why they won’t lose weight or why four secret pounds have crept on, keep a food diary for three days and write down every sugar packet that you dump into your coffee and each nibble in the snack cabinet to see as clear as day just how much you are really eating.
Weight By Date is a software program that takes your food diary one step further by calculating the calories and nutrients of each food that passes your lips for you. Best of all, it’s affordable at under $40.
Weight-by-Date is a diet software package that journals your own fitness goals and diet progress. There are no claims that you will lose a certain amount of weight by a certain amount of time.

It also has a food diary which keeps track of what you are eating, the nutrients you are getting and helps you to stay under your caloric limits with its organized calculations.
