Dr. Gourmet Launches The Quality Calorie Diet Plan - Free Online Meal Planning Software

Free fully customizable diet plan offered by Dr. Gourmet

NEW ORLEANS, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Timothy S. Harlan, M.D., also known as Dr. Gourmet, today launches the newest version of his free, customizable diet and menu planning software, which is now available @ The name of the plan reflects Dr. Harlan's belief that quality calories - found in healthy, delicious foods - are the key to eating healthy and sustained weight loss.

The software is based on the 5 areas that research has shown help people with both eating healthy and weight loss.

1. Meal Planning - The Quality Calorie Diet software provides users two week menu plans, complete with shopping lists, based on the number of calories required for a healthy weight. The completely free plan uses Dr. Gourmet recipes, but will also allow users to use recipes from a user's own Recipe Box in planning menus.

2. Food Diary - Many research studies have shown that keeping track of their food intake leads to greater weight loss and also sustained weight management. Those who use a food diary consistently do better. The Quality Calorie Diet software offers a comprehensive online Food Diary.

3. Goal Tracking - By giving users the tools to track not just foods eaten but also an Exercise Diary, the Dr. Gourmet plan allows documenting of calories consumed vs. calories burned. Because research shows that regular measurement of such information as well as daily weights enhances weight loss the software offers a comprehensive Goal Tracking feature.

4. Groups Lose Weight Better - It is well established that those who work on their weight in a group setting do much better. The Quality Calorie Diet software is the only software of its kind that allows users to create a plan that works for their whole family.

"Families are taken into account - and embraced," says Dr. Harlan. "Meal plans can be created for groups of any size, age, or weight. Leftovers are allocated into meals later in the week. Nobody wants to cook every day, and great leftovers have a place in our lives and in a healthy diet."

5. Knowledge - The Dr. Gourmet web site offers extensive information about eating healthy, weight loss, and for a number of health conditions. It is important to understand what is in the food we eat. The new Recipe Box feature allows users to enter their own recipes for use in meal plans and also analyzes the recipes and provides Nutrition Facts.
