    got the idea from Russ
    yellow is editable, data is entered in by number of portions.
    section below that calculates calories based on the portions eaten (so 1.5x portions of apple will be 1.5x72)
    section below that is my eating schedule, red parts shows i havent eaten that food today, with the total portions i have eaten (which can be compared to the "total" portions)

    google excel is not bad... quite fun to mess around with it

    Surprised no one is using Livestrong's Daily Plate. It has a ton of things you can eat and submit, and you can construct 'meals' which are groups of related foods. Much better than Fitday, in my opinion, even though Fitday has a lot of reporting data.

    My issue with the daily plate is the wide variance in calories reported for the same food.

    My aim is to provide a community checked group of foods, ingredients, and recipes. A "No BS" version of Daily Plate.

    additionally, make sure it can be ported to an iPhone app.
    I was thinking .NET but Java isn't a bad idea.

    What does the iPhone run? Java?

    What file formats would people want the data outputted to? Excel? CSV? Text?

    What reports do people use on FitDay that they would like replicated?

    So, here's what I'm thinking in terms of functionality.

    Add a food (Potato)
    Add this food to a recipe (Scalloped Potatoes)
    - Recipes can include cooking directions as well
    Add this Recipe to a meal (Steak & Potatoes)
    - Meals can be single, or multiple portions.
    Add a Meal, or food to your log.
    - I had one serving of steak and potatoes (meal) a serving of scalloped potatoes (recipe) and a cup of ice cream (food)

    Once you have entered your food the software will track calories eaten.

    Make sense? Seem logical?

    Useful Charts:
    Caculated Metabolic Rate vs Time
    Calories eaten vs time
    Calories Burned with Exercise vs Time
    Net Calories vs Time
    All nutrients (Protein, Fat, Fiber, etc) vs time
    Total Weight vs time
    Fat Weight vs time
    Muscle Weight vs time
    Body Fat % vs time

    Useful Reports
    Nutrition % RDA for past day, week, month, year for all nutrients

    Useful Recipe functionality:
    You define a recipe by picking food items and quantities from the database. You tell software how much it makes (10 servings, 5 cups, 11 pounds, whatever). Now you can log any quantity you want of that recipe ( 1 cup, 1/2 serving, 2 pounds, whatever) and it will use that info in tracking your calories

    Useful Tracking
    Metabolic Rate - An intial calc can be made with standard formulas to find metabolic rate (given weight, height, age) not considerind exercise. As the following info is entered over time: calories eaten, calories burned with exercise, weight, body fat percentage .... the software will have enough info to calculate your real metabolic rate.

    Just had another thought ... if you're going to open database entries to the public then maybe there should be some kind of quality control. At least require a reference to be given for the source of the info ... and a way to report bad info.

    This is the model that Daily Plate uses. New additions basically are community-contributed, but popular stuff (like say McDonald's or some other famous brand) is monitored so only mods can make changes to the nutritional value.

    Oh yeah. Brands. Brand names = better categorization.
