Mosby's Nutritrac Nutrition Analysis Software, Version IV (Revised Edition), 4th Edition
An innovative CD-ROM program, Nutritrac IV, Revised Edition, takes the guesswork out of calculating and analyzing food intake and energy expenditure. This nutrition software calculates energy expenditure based on activity level and caloric intake and generates nutrient reports and easy-to-read pie charts that detail sources of carbohydrates, fat, and protein. This program even analyzes a diet's compliance with Dietary Reference Intakes, Recommended Nutrient Intakes, and the Food Guide Pyramid. The Personal Profile section allows the user to enter and edit an unlimited number of profiles — allowing the user to monitor and manage the overall nutrition of multiple clients or the entire family. Nutritrac is ideal for both professional and personal use, with more than 150 activities and approximately 5,000 foods included!
