A vivid description regarding an individual's intake is considered. Other methods of weight loss, namely exercise, both cardio vascular and strength exercises are taken care of.

Certain biochemical parameters, such as glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure and so on. Motivation is an essential part of diet analysis. The kind of motivation and rewards established for weight loss is determined. Foods are never kept as rewards for motivation. Keeping a track of what you eat is essential. Dietary questionnaire helps in tracking your food intake.

Activity calorie calculator helps in determining the required calories, based on the activity. Determining the portion size and keeping a check on what you eat is vital. Certain tools like My Pyramid tracker helps in providing information on nutrients and the quality of the diet.
