Using the Graphs and Charts



Weight Wizard has several graphs to help monitor your weight loss and nutrition over time. The Graphs layout has three sections; weight, measurements and nutrition. It's important to view these graphs regularly to spot trends in your weight loss progress.


The Weight Graphs

The Weight section has two different graphs: the weight graph and the BMI graph. These graphs are based on the weight entries from your Weight Journal.


The Weight Graph

Weight Graph

When you enter weights in your Weight Journal you will see them show up in this graph as nodes on the blue line. This graph is similar to the one in the Weight & Measurements Journal, except it shows more detail.

The red line shows your starting weight and the green line shows your goal weight. The yellow line shows your projected weight. This is where your weight should be, if you are staying on target. If you are staying on target, the blue line should be right over the yellow line. If the blue is over the yellow line you are not losing weight as fast as you should be and if it is below the yellow line you are losing weight faster than expected. If your actual weight strays to far from the predicted weight, you might consider changing your calorie budget or adding more exercise to your daily routine to compensate.


The BMI Graph

bmi Graph

The BMI graph shows your BMI over time. BMI (Body Mass Index) is based on your weight and height and gives you a general idea if your weight to height ratio is in a healthy range. BMI is a useful tool to estimate a healthy body weight.

As you lose weight over time you should see your BMI gradually become lower. Ideally you want your BMI to lower into the green, healthy range. The healthy range is between 18 and 24 and is the ideal weight that was suggested when you created a profile.


The Measurement Graphs

Measurements Graph

The measurements graph is based on the measurements that you enter in the Measurements Journal. You can view a graph of your total measurements or individual body parts: chest, waist, hips, forearm, thigh and calf.

If are losing weight as expected, you should see a gradual decline in this graph over time.

The measurements graph can be very useful if you are trying to lose size in a problem area of your body, such as your waist or hips.


The Nutrition Graphs

The nutrition graphs are based on the foods that you enter in your Food Journal. They are designed to help with monitoring the nutrition and calories from the foods that you have entered in your Food Journal. These graphs can help you stay on track and stay fit by showing unhealthy eating trends in your diet.


The Calories Graph

Nutrition Graph

The Calories graph shows your calorie budget, total calories consumed and calories from fat, carbohydrates and protein. The View Meal Type pop-up menu allows you to view the graph by meal type, such as breakfast, lunch, dinner, etc.. For example, by selecting breakfast you can see all of the calories that you have consumed just for breakfast. This a useful tool for seeing how many calories you are consuming for different meals. For example, you might determine that your late night snacks are preventing you from losing weight.


Example of Calories Graph Showing Snacks

Nutrition Graph Snacks

The screen shot to the left shows the calories consumed for snacks in January, 2008. On 1/16/2008 you can see a spike in the blue line, which shows the total calories from snacks and you can see from the green line that most of them came from carbohydrates. The calories graph is an excellent way to tell if you are staying on target. By viewing different meal types you can spot problem areas that may be preventing you from losing weight.


The Gram Weight Graph

Gram Weight Graph

The Grams graph shows how many grams you have consumed of Fat, saturated fat, carbohydrates, fiber and protein. This is a useful graph for seeing how much nutrition you are getting in different areas.

This graph can be particularly useful if you are monitoring a specific type of nutrition, such as protein or carbs, for example.


The Monthly Average Graph

Nutrition Graph Monthly

The Monthly Average graph shows the average calories that you have consumed per day and the average calories from fat, carbohydrates and protein.

This is a very useful graph for seeing if you are staying close to the nutritional ratios that you set when you created your profile. Also, viewing the average calories per month can give you a better idea if you are staying on target than looking at each day individually. Some days you might go a little over and others you might go under, but it's what you do most of the time that counts and this is what is shown by the monthly average.


Summary

  • View these graphs regularly, at least twice per week, to spot trends in your weight loss progress.
  • Use the Weight and BMI graph to view your weight loss and BMI (Body Mass Index) over time.
  • Use the Measurements graph to view your measurements over time. These graph are particularly important for monitoring problem areas, such as waist or hips.
  • The Nutrition graphs are important for spotting problem areas where you may be eating too many calories.
  • Use the Monthly Average graph to monitor how many calories you are eating daily on average and whether or not you are staying close to your nutrition ratios. Some days you might go a little over and others you might go under, but it's what you do most of the time that counts and this is what is shown by the monthly average.
