These include you starting and dates, your age, sex, weight, body fat% and resting heart rate. You can use BODYTFITdb strictly as a diet and nutrition program, or just as an exercise program.

While BODYFITdb does not make any recommendations on fitness or nutrition products, staff have experienced good results with the AccuFitness FatTrack II. It is inexpensive, simple to use, and provides a digital read-out for a 3-point caliper analysis, including your measurements in millimeters and body fat%

Q. Can BODYFITdb help me prepare a week's menu at a time?
A. Absolutely. With RECIPE BUILDER you create and store recipes and, with MENU MAKER you can create an entire menu for a meal, or for a day's worth a meals, or even a week. MENU MAKER will also print a handy shopping list of ingredients, based on the number of people or servings you input.
Q. Does BODYFITdb offer any suggested eating/exercise regimens to follow?
A. BODYFITdb does not provide "pre-formatted" menus based on your weight or health history. Because everyone has unique health, fitness and nutrition needs, a generalized, preformatted diet or exercise program is of little real value. BODYFITdb highly encourages you to work with your nutrition or fitness professional to develop specific nutrition or exercise programs.
Q. Can BODYFITdb create a fitness "plan" for me or a family member?
A. BODYFITdb is designed as a "free-form' program that allows you to use it in an almost unlimited number of ways. If you are just starting a fitness program, it will help you to develop you own fitness "plan." If you are already fitness conscious and follow a fitness and nutrition program, you will find BODYFITdb an invaluable tool for tracking and analyzing your results. You can visually "see" the results of your efforts using BODYFITdb's 57 graphs and reports.
Fitness is a vital component to a healthy life and sense of well-being. If fitness is important to you BODYFIT recommends you contact a fitness instructor, or a fitness professional at your gym or health club to help you develop a specific fitness "plan."
Q. Does BODYFITdb have any selections for great workout music?
A. Nothing at all. However, you can certainly locate some workout music by accessing any number of web sites found in the BODYFITdb HOME module.
