Dr. Roy Walford's Interactive Diet Planner 

blank

Now available with sustaining membership to the Calorie Restriction Society. Improper nutrition - the typical American junky diet - leads to life shortening, more diseasepicture (heart disease, cancer, maturity diabetes, autoimmune disease etc.), greater obesity, and general lack of well-being than any other single environmental cause, including even smoking or a sedentary life-style (not that we condone either of these). DWIDPView allows you to address any or all of these issues in a simple and complete yet highly sophisticated manner, uncluttered by the mass-mind bunk of many other nutrition software packages. If you want to lose weight and keep it off, you need to reeducate your food habits. DWIDP does that! DWIDP shows how! The rationale for all the above benefits is based on over 30 years of research on rodents in Dr. Walford's laboratory at the UCLA School of Medicine, on the work of many other highly qualified academic investigators, and including more recent studies in monkeys and in humans (including the Biosphere 2 studies).

blank The program provides nutrient information on a 3,000 item database of foods culledpicture from Dept. of Agriculture listings, from the nutritional literature, and with selected items from German and Japanese databases. You can add your own foods ( if you find some we haven't ), plus you can add whole recipes, and customize serving sizes. To the extent that information is available from the above combined sources, 28 nutrients are covered for each food, including macro-nutrients like fat, protein , carbohydrates, fiber, and micro-nutrients (vitamins and minerals). The program tells you how much of each you are getting on either a per-item, per meal, per day, or a weekly or monthly basis (See the log file window.), and expressed in both graphical and numerical forms. Finally, the powerful Search Engine is DWIDP's key element, and is unmatched and in fact hardly even attempted elsewhere.

For Windows 95, 98 and NT: Download. From Windows Explorer, simply double click on the Dw272demo.exe file. This self-extracting file will install the demonstration DWIDP on your computer. You will be prompted for a directory to install to. That's it.
This demo version is full featured, with the exception that you will not be able to save recipes, use the daily average feature, or add foods to the database. You can create your own foodlists and personalized User profile.

You can set up a New User Profile sopicture the program can adapt to the level of nutrition you are aiming for. Next (or first, if you elect the default profile), you create your own foodlist, with entries either in grams, calories, or on a per serving basis. As foods are added to the list, nutritional totals are automatically updated. These can be visualized via a View All Nutrients-Table or a Histogram bar chart. You will find yourself becoming painlessly but thoroughly educated about the foods you eat.

And now for the Search Engine!Suppose you put together what seems to you a good, nutritious food list for the day, a tasty combination that's nevertheless low in calories and fat ... butpicture the Nutrient Table or the Bar Chart show it's still moderaely deficient in, say, vitamins E, B6, calcium, and fiber. What one or two foods can you add that will make up the difference but without adding many calories or fat. That's a serious so-called "bin-packing" problem that you just can't solve by eyeballing charts in books, but DWIDP will solve it in a couple of clicks, and give you the top ten foods - in order of goodness of fit - that fit the particular requirements. Six maximize-minimize options are available from the Search drop down menu. And you can search all food categories (meat, fish, vegetable, legumes, dairy, grain, etc) or limit yourself to one just a few categories. Ain't nothin' like it!

DWIDP is user-friendly. comes with online help, a quick reference guide, and a clearly written manual.

Search Add foods to DWIDP's database, or analyze foods with Our Customized Search engine. You'll find nutrient values for 6,000 foods from the USDA database.
