"Calorie Differential Over Time" feature

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

I just checked out this feature and I think it's really great. I'm feeling like I have hit a wall with my weight, and I've had a few slip-ups and lazy days, but when I look at this graph, I see that I am still doing all the right things over the long term. I am maintaining my weight, and I have confidence I can lose the last few pounds. It's nice to have an extra tool to measure my "lifestyle" and not just my weight.

    This is the feature that shows how many calories you burn vs. how many you eat. You can look at the average daily, weekly, or monthly. I like it because it's not about your weight, it's about your lifestyle, and if you look at the long-term averages, then (hopefully) you can see that a few bad days did not ruin everything.

You actually don't want to see any drops in the line; you want to see a consistent, healthy range of calorie intake that is an appropriate amount lower than calorie output.

    Sometimes it frustrates me to look at it as the line doesn't drop as quickly as I'd like, but it is a very cool feature.
