You can update your results including your weight and measurements to keep track of your progress.
We recommend you update your results on a weekly basis, however, you could update them as frequently as every day, or less often, it’s your choice.

Getting familiar with the update results window
The update results window its quite simple, but very powerful! You can track as little, or much as you want, and use the window to add a new weight or update an existing entry.
Start by checking the date is correct (1) for the entry you want to add or update. You can change the date using the two arrow buttons to the left of the currently displayed date.
Next, update your weight (2). The weight will be shown in the units currently specified in your user profile. We recommend you update your weight on a weekly basis, this helps the software calculate the current daily calorie recommendation and keeps the results graphs up to date.
You can add a note to accompany the weight measurement, perhaps to remind you in the future how you were doing with your diet at the time. For example, you may have had a vacation and want to make a note so in future reports you can see why you did not maintain your diet that week.
The additional tracking options (3) are optional, you do not need to use them but many users find them very useful. There is no limit as to how many additional items you can track and you can change the items you want to track to suit your own needs, for example, many diabetic users monitor their blood levels.
To change the items you are tracking, press the delete icon (4) to delete an item you do not want to track, or the add icon (5) to add a new field to track.
Once you are happy and would like to confirm your entry simply click the ‘OK’ button.
If you have changed the date to a date in the past the Perfect Diet Tracker will warn you that you are about to enter a historic weight and ask if you want to enter the weight for the date in the past or use today’s date.
