"Eating Coach" Comes to Your PC

DANBURY, Conn. (February 27, 2007)—DietPower, Inc., today launched a new version of its popular nutrition software that turns your PC into a real-time "eating coach."

"DietPower 4.4 is the only program we know of that shows which of your favorite foods is best for your nutrient balance right now," says company founder and CEO Terry Dunkle. "It even tells which food you'd be smartest to have 'seconds' in."

DietPower 4.4 reveals your intake of 33 nutrients as you log your meals. Because it continually adjusts your calorie budget as it "learns" your metabolism, it's the only program on the market that guarantees reaching your goal if you stick to your budget. It also recommends foods you like that will balance your nutrient intake, improving your odds against heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and other killers.

The "eating coach" and "smart seconds" functions are among 23 new features in the latest version of a program that began in 1988 when Dunkle was a Reader's Digest editor looking for a quicker way to count calories. The $49.99* program also:

DietPower's scientific advisors include Ann Coulston, past president of the American Dietetic Association; Robert Epstein, founder of the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies; and Barry Franklin, former president of the American College of Sports Medicine.

Version 4.4 requires Windows 2000, ME, XP, or Vista; 256 megabytes of memory; and one gigabyte of disk space. It works by itself or with Atkins, South Beach, Weight Watchers, American Heart Association, or any other diet. Priced at $49.99* for newcomers or $26.99 for upgraders from previous versions, the program comes with a one-year money-back guarantee.

A free 15-day trial of the the latest version of DietPower is available on a CD-ROM or by downloading from www.dietpower.com, where users can also purchase a key that makes the free trial work permanently. For further information, company contacts are at www.dietpower.com/who_we_are/contact_us.php.

On June 12, 2008, this was lowered to $39.99.
