Calorie Counter - Functional Documentation

Counting calories is an effective method of reducing weight (need citation?). To assist in this I have developed a tool that allows you to capture the calories consumed along with the fat content for food eaten on a daily basis. The tool also provides the ability to total calories/fats and to group the totals by day. The application is focused on entering Food consumed against daily Food Plans.

Iteration 1 - Knowledge Capture and Basic Reporting

Food Plan Capture screen

Allows for capturing food consumed on a given day and for producing totals of calories and fat content.
