With the ADD MEAL option you can literally create any combination of foods, entrees, condiments, toppings, drinks etc. to create any type of meal, snack or beverage you might consume through the day. Further, the Build a meal Feature in CONSUME MEAL allows you the benefit of being able to select the portions of individual items you have built in a meal and change them when you consume the meal or entree. You can create a Beef Entree (see above), enter into the CONSUME MEAL function, and select only the items you intend to eat, or ate, for that meal. The same as choosing (or building) a meal from a menu. You can do the same thing with beverages, meats, cereals, fruits or whatever you like. The combinations you create are up to your imagination and creativity. You can also create your favorite meals/snacks/beverages you know you consume throughout the day. There is even an option-Eat And Run-where you can build a meal/entree/snack or individual food item to eat only once and not have it saved in your files.

GENERAL OPERATIONAL INFORMATION

The color icons/objects (Exercises) button, (Consume Meal) button, and Menu icon may require two taps to start the screen.

"Initializing Records" zero's out the present day's data for total consumed calories (and all food values such as calories, protein, carbohydrates . . .) and total calories used in exercises. It does this the first time you enter the UltimateCalorieMeter each day. It does not zero out any information in the "PERSONAL" screen. As a result, to obtain accurate summary's for seven days and thirty days, it is important to maintain these records on a daily basis. Initializing will happen only once a day.

When you see a menu icon in the lower left corner of the screen tapping on it, or your PDA menu icon, a list of menu options will be displayed. The options will depend on the screen you are on.

The first two screens when you start the program are general instruction screen. Be sure to tap on each icon to see what they do. Further, in the last screen of the CONSUME MEAL function there is a question mark in the upper left hand corner. Tapping on the question mark will take you to a help screen which explains how to use that screen. Understanding how to create and then consume meals is very important go getting the most out of the program. You may want to study the sample meals and entrees to get an idea of how the UltimateCalorieMeter works.

"Do you want to save your . . . data now?" allows you three choices (YES), (NO), (CANCEL). The option to save your information will be found in the "PERSONAL" screen, and the "PORTIONS" screen (in "FOOD MENU" screen). When you select (YES) the information is saved and you are returned to the screen immediately preceding. When you select (NO) you are returned to the screen immediately preceding without saving changes when you select (CANCEL) you are returned to present screen to adjust any entries made.

The following information regarding speed may vary based upon the speed of your PDA.
Some operations, like ADD MEAL, will take time (this is because large amounts of data that may be needed to be read for some Meal Items). This can not be avoided. But once you have created a meal the consuming, viewing, adjusting or deleting operations are relatively fast.
In general, you can tell the program is working because something, somewhere on the screen will be flashing, blinking or changing values as you watch. When the flashing, blinking or values stop changing you are ready to go on to the next operation. As you work with UltimateCalorieMeter you will find what you can get away with as far as performing operations BEFORE the blinking, flashing and value changing stops.

Suggestions and general comments are welcomed. Email us at UltimateCalorieMeter@msn.com.

CONSUME MEAL Screen
fitness fitness
This screen allows you to select or edit/customize a meal that you have previously added. If you have a supper with peas, and did not eat those peas, "CONSUME MEAL" allows you to change this meal. Or if you originally entered nine ounces of Roast Beef and only ate six ounces, "CONSUME MEAL" allows to change what you actually consumed for that meal. By selecting a meal to consume, you can adjust each individual item in that meal so as to show the actual amount you ate. Changing a portion size when you consume a meal does not alter the original values you entered when you created the meal or entree. The next time you choose that meal, the original food items and original portions selected are retained.

With the ADD MEAL/ENTREE function, you have the ability to enter many items into a meal (eg: Entree as above) and then enter CONSUME MEAL and select only those items you will be eating for that meal or entree. This allows you to enter a meal or menu selections one time and then customize the meal without the need to enter each item individually every time you eat a meal.

Finally, if you wish to consume only one item or a few items only one time and do not wish to add them into their own meal. You can select "Eat N' Run" and select the item(s) you wish to consume and they will not be saved to your files.


Eat N' Run Category
If there is a food item that you will eat (or have consumed), but do not have the item in one of the meals you have built, this category allows you to select that item on a one time only basis. Follow the same steps you would for "ADD MEAL". When you are in the "list of food items" screen, simply find the item in the top list, tap on it and then tap the down arrow in the middle of the screen to select the item. To remove an item: find it in the bottom list, tap on it and tap on the up arrow. When your selection is completed tap on the (Next) button.

You will then be taken into the "ITEM SERVING INFORMATION" screen where you will enter the number of portions you have eaten. Next tap on the (Continue/Finish) button and that item(s) will be consumed. The meal/entree information will not be saved, but the calorie and other values will be entered into your totals.

Eating A Meal/Entree As Is (not using BUILD box)
To consume a meal, snack, beverage or other; tap on "CONSUME MEAL" from the "MAIN MENU" and you will be brought to the "MEAL CATEGORIES - CONSUME" screen. Choose a category by tapping on it. You next will be brought to a screen listing all of the meals you have entered so far in this category. Select a meal by tapping on it and then tap on the (CONSUME Meal Name) button on the bottom of the screen.

The next screen will display the name of the category, total calories consumed for the day, total calories consumed for the day plus the total calories intended to consume with the meal, the name of the meal, total calories for the meal, and the items of the meal with the corresponding calories for each item. If you want to consume that meal without any changes, simply tap on the (Done) button and you will be taken into the "Summary" screen that will show the calories consumed for this meal along with the totals for six food values.

EDITING OF AN EXISTING MEAL/ENTREE
Customizing/Editing a Meal Feature
In order to customize or edit an existing meal to reflect what was actually eaten, select a category from "MEAL CATEGORIES". You will then go to the screen which shows the meals for that category. Tap on the meal to consume and then on the (CONSUME Meal Name) button to enter into the "CONSUME" screen. If you want to customize or edit the meal, because you actually ate a different amount of an item then when you first set the meal up; you tap on an item in the meal and enter the "Portion actually eaten:" (input area in the lower right portion of the screen). The top lines of the screen will change to show your originally selected portions. Use decimals to indicate fractional amounts, eg: .5 = 1/2, .25 = 1/4, 1/8 = .125 etc. And if you did not eat a given item in the meal, simply enter "0" for the "Portion actually eaten:". After entering the actual portion size tap the (RECALC) button. The "Meal Total" and "Total w/ Meal" (total calories consumed for the day plus the total calories intended to consume with the meal) on the top will change according to your entry. A (Done) button will then appear to consume the edited meal.

Build a Meal Feature
If you have entered many items into a meal (ie: certain type of meal like Pork Entree), the Build a Meal Feature will allow you to select only those items you have/will eat with that meal. To do this, select a category from "MEAL CATEGORIES". You will then go to the screen which shows the meals for that category. Tap on the meal to consume and then on the (CONSUME Meal Name) button to enter into the "CONSUME" screen.

Next tap on the (BUILD) box found near the bottom of the screen. This box is to the left of the line which says "Portion actually eaten". Then select an item in the meal that you will eat by tapping on the item. The text in the upper part of the screen will indicate the portions you have selected, the description of the food item you have selected and the menu item the meal falls under. The "Portion actually eaten" will reflect what was your original portions selected. You can change this amount or accept it. Then tap on the (RECALC) button. The meal total will change to reflect the total number of calories in the meal and the "Total w/ Meal" will reflect your anticipated caloric consumption with this meal. To select more items from that meal, simply follow the same steps until your meal is completed.
It is important to note that you will have to tap on the (RECALC) button for each item you choose to eat in the meal.

When you are finished tap the (Done) button and you will go to the "Daily Summary" screen once again.

IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING MULTIPLE PORTION CHANGES OF ONE MEAL ITEM!
If in the process of Customizing or Building a meal, you wish to readjust a portion of a food item that you have already selected once for adjusting; it is very important that you tap on the (Reset) button first. Then begin Customizing or Building your Meal from the beginning. Failure to do this will result in incorrect and distorted data.

EXERCISE screen
fitness fitness
The Exercises Screen allows you to select from 34 different exercises. To enter your time spent in an exercise, simply tap on the "EXERCISE SELECTIONS" button. This will display the exercises you can select (see ADD/EDIT/DELETE screens to edit exercises). Then select the activity that you participated in. This will display information (already inserted by you for this exercise) and allow you to enter the Daily Total Amount of time you spent in this activity. It is important to remember that this number represents the cumulative amount of time you were in this activity throughout the entire day. The number you enter for this activity will show each time you enter this screen for the chosen activity and will be used to determine the total calories expended for the day.

To exit the "Minutes in Exercise" screen without changing the value you can tap on the (CANCEL) button and you will be returned to the Main screen while retaining the previous minutes you indicated for that exercise. To enter minutes spent in an exercise simply use the graffiti number pad, or use the PDA numeric key-pad. If you use the graffiti pad the values in the "TOTAL CALORIES SPENT...." will update immediately. If you use the PDA numeric key-pad you will need to tap the (RECALC) button to find the new value. No matter the way you enter the numbers you will still need to hit the (RECALC) button for the (DONE) key to appear.

"Today Total" reflects the total caloric expenditure in the "EXERCISES" menu. This number represents the approximate calories expended by you from the beginning of the current day to the time of display for all exercises. Energy expenditure depends upon both the intensity of the exercise and exercise activity selected. Thus, individual variation in energy expenditure for a given physical activity can be quite large.

*** "Today Total" showing no value:
Requires the "PRESENT WEIGHT" field in the "PERSONAL" screen be complete.

*** "Total calories spent in this exercise today": This value represents the total of the selected exercise when you enter any numeric value in the total minutes for today. If you choose to use the key-pad to enter a number you will be required to tap on the (RECALC) key to obtain the value. You can change the total minutes to view how many calories this exercise will use for the amount of time you enter.

Create meal (Add a New Meal or Entree) Screens
fitness   diet  pda
Before you can select a meal to consume you need to create the meal or entree. It is very easy and straightforward.

From the "MAIN MENU" you tap on (Create) meal that will take you to the "MEAL CATEGORIES - ADD" screen. Here you choose which category of food you want this selection to fall into (Breakfast, Lunch, Supper, Snack, Beverage or Other). Tap on your selected category.

*** The "Other" category is intended to place favorites items (eg: Strawberries, Apples, All Vegetables, All Snacks or other items that you will only consume one item of, or several single items in one selection), or special entrees of your choice. The use of (Other) categories is a much faster method of selecting a single food item or grouping items of a similar menu item together.

And of course you can put any type of meal, part of meal or groups of food items into any category you choose.

After you choose a category for which you will add a meal too, you will be taken into a "list of meals" screen where you will enter the name at the top part of the screen. It must be under 21 characters. Then tap on (Next) on the bottom of the screen. This will take you into the "ADD" screen.

Next choose a (FOOD GROUP), followed by a (MENU ITEM). You will know they are finished loading when the name you tapped becomes the current name for (FOOD GROUP) or (MENU ITEM). After you tap (MENU ITEM), in a moment or two, the box below the (MENU ITEM) will be filled with all of the food items you can add to your meal based upon the (FOOD GROUP)/(MENU ITEM) combination you select.

To add an item to your meal: find it in the top list, tap on it and tap the down arrow in the middle of the screen. To remove an item: find it in the bottom list, tap on it and tap on the up arrow.

You can change (Food Groups) and (Menu Items) as many times as you like when in this screen. When you are finished with the meal click on the (Next) button. You will now go into the "Item Serving Information" for this meal.

Buttons
If you question the abbreviations in this list box simply tap on the (I) button and you will be taken into a list of abbreviations and their description.
If you want to view the portion of the item and the nutritional values for each food item, tap on the (D) button. This will take you to a screen which allows to to view these items and then (CANCEL) out of the routine.
*** If you tap on (Previous) or (Cancel) all changes made will be lost.

ITEM SERVING INFORMATION Screens
women weight
On the "Item Serving Information" you can customize the serving portion for each item of the meal you will be eating. For instance if you choose a steak and the serving size comes up as 1 pound. By entering a fractional amount, you can determine the amount of the item you will eat with this meal.   Remember, this portion can be changed later when you consume the meal as can any item in the meal.

It is recommended when setting up an Entree to use zero (0) servings for each food item entered.. In this way, the Entree will indicate 0 calories for the meal until you enter the Entree at which time you can select the item to be eaten and the appropriate servings you will eat/or have eaten in that meal.

All of the meal items will come up one item at a time, each time you tap on (Next Item). If at any time you want to start at the first item and begin again, you tap on (Start Over) button and you can begin again. The (Start Over) button will not appear until you hit the (Next Item) button for the first meal item. When all of the items for this Meal have portions entered, you will be asked if you want to continue or start over. This is a last chance to change portion information when creating the meal (they can of course be changed later using the Adjust function). If you tap on (Continue), the data will be saved and you will be taken to a screen to view your Meal. Tap on (Finished) and you will be taken back to the "MAIN MENU."

If you enter excessively large numbers for portions, like 400 Milks, your results may be corrupt. If you really need something this large, we suggest you break the items into smaller portion quantities. Instead of 400 milks try four Milk portions at 100 servings each for one milk item.

You can either set up all of your meals before you begin using UltimateCalorieMeter or set up meals as you go through your day.

Personal Information screen

IMPORTANT: For the UltimateCalorieMeter (Cal Meter) to give you accurate and meaningful information it is highly recommended that you maintain current information in this screen.

*** "IDEAL WEIGHT" is a weight range, based upon your height, that you can use as an Ultimate target to achieve. It is based upon information from the Metropolitan Height/Weight averages. There exists certain heights for which this table did not provide weight ranges and the UltimateCalorieMeter will indicate that "IDEAL WEIGHTS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR YOUR HEIGHT". We recommend that if this is the case for your height, that you use the "BODY MASS" section as a measure of your height to weight.

*** "IDEAL WEIGHT" showing no value:
Requires complete Gender, Height (both Ft and In.) fields.

*** "TARGET WEIGHT" represents the weight you wish to reach.
The "Daily Calorie Avg. to Achieve Target Weight" is used to derive your active caloric average to reach this target weight.

*** Calculations in the "EXERCISES" screen are based upon maintaining "PRESENT WEIGHT" fields current. Additionally, historical information regarding your present weight will be available to the you in future upgrades. So it is important to maintain current "PRESENT WEIGHT" data.

*** "ACTIVITY LEVEL" represents your level of normal daily activity.
(LOW) Sedentary in nature. You should select this if minimal activity best describes your daily routine. If you complete no exercises and do very little in the course of a day you should select (LOW). This would be your classic "couch potato".
(MEDIUM) Moderately active in the course of a day. You remain active in your job during the day, but do not get involved in any exercises during the course of a day.
(HIGH) You have moderate daily activity in the course of a day (see "MEDIUM"), but in addition to this activity, you are also involved in some course of exercise throughout the day.

*** "BODY MASS" (BMI) is a measure of your height/weight ratio. To obtain this ratio you need to tap on the (RECALC) button or exit the "PERSONAL" screen and save the data. BMI's between 19.5 and 24.9 are considered by professionals to be optimum. Overweight BMI's range between 25 and 29.9 while obese ranges are above 30.

*** "BODY MASS" (Body Mass Index - BMI) showing no value:
Requires complete height ("FT" and "IN") and "PRESENT WEIGHT" fields.

*** "Daily Calorie Avg. to Achieve Target Weight" represents the net daily calories required to achieve your "TARGET WEIGHT".

*** "Daily Calorie Avg. to Achieve Target Weight" showing no value: Requires complete "AGE", "HEIGHT" (both Ft. and In), "TARGET WEIGHT" and "ACTIVITY LEVEL" fields. Tap the (RECALC) button (see below to manually input your own "Daily Calories") or exit the screen and save the data in order to derive a new caloric average.

fitness    EDIT IT (Menu Button)
woman fitness
This menu feature allows you to manually input the "Daily Calorie Avg. to Achieve Target Weight" or resume the automatic calculation of this field. Simply tap on the (Menu) button at the bottom of the PDA and select either "Manual Calc" to input your personal caloric figure or "Auto Calc" to resume the automatic calculation.

IMPORTANT HEALTH NOTE AND DISCLAIMERS
The UltimateCalorieMeter uses the sum of the Harris-Benedict equation (to determine your basal metabolic rate) and an activity factor (based upon your inputted "ACTIVITY LEVEL"). It is recommended to seek profession advice when determining your "TARGET WEIGHT" (see EDIT IT above to adjust automatic calculation). Actual caloric amounts may vary based upon your actual activity level. Basal Metabolic Index (BMI) can be affected by at least 10 different variables (e.g.: Age, body composition, stress, etc). Contact us by email (UltimateCalorieMeter@msn.com) for specific formulas used to determine your "BODY MASS" (BMI) or "Daily Calorie Avg. to Achieve Target Weight".
