|iFitOne is unlike so many other diet and weight loss tracking solutions where you need to look up and track the details and calories of everything you eat.|
If you're looking for the easiest to use diet and fitness motivation tool for your Windows Mobile device or Windows Phone, you've just found it. Read on to find out how easy it is to use and get started today!
The number one goal of iFitOne is to bring you the easiest way to help you set goals, track your progress, motivate you and above all fit into your busy life.
There are plenty of experts that will recommend tracking the calories, grams of fat, carbs, etc of everything you put into your mouth. While that's all fine (and I've done it before), there's plenty of evidence that many people won't follow through with that for long. It's simply too tedious and time consuming.
No matter what type of diet 'plan' you would like to go on (Atkins, Grapefruit, Cabbage Soup, you name it..), or if you would simply like to focus on eating healthier, iFitOne can help, make the process more fun and keep you motivated to succeed.
We want you to enjoy using iFitOne and took the time-consuming data entry part and simplified it to make it fast and easy for you to stay up-to-date and track your progress.
The basic concept of iFitOne is: Eat the good, stay away from the bad, and get exercise. Simple, effective, nothing fad about it. The more good and healthy foods you eat and the less you indulge in the junk food will help you make your weight loss goals a reality. Add in exercise and you'll speed things along even faster and feel even better.
The challenge for everyone trying to lose weight is staying motivated. You need to stay with it every day, but no one is perfect, so it's also about getting right back on track if you do have a bad day. iFitOne will help with daily reminders, 'bugging' you to make sure you're keeping track of what you're eating and doing and helping keep your goals in mind at all times.
We'll take it step by step, help get you started with iFitOne and on the path to the new you that you've been dreaming of.
iFitOne FAQs Installing Sample Data
|Install iFitOne on your Windows Mobile device|
If you haven't installed iFitOne yet, download and install it now
Start up iFitOne
from the Start/Programs folder.
You'll be greeted by the Welcome screen and taken to the My Profile screen where you will set up your weight and size loss goals and dates.
Fill in your Profile
Your name and email address are entirely optional and used when/if you choose to send the iFitOne screen images as an email attachment.
Press the center/Action button (or tap) to change any of the values shown to reflect your own goals.
You'll likely want to choose the Start Date as today or tomorrow. Set the goal date to a reasonable date based on your weight loss goals.
Health experts typically recommend about 5 pounds (2-3kg) loss per month as a safe and health weight loss. So, if you're goal is to lose 20 pounds, you may want to set your goal date 4 months from now.
You can adjust your goal dates at any time based on your rate of weight loss.

|Establishing your Daily Goals|
Once you have completed your profile, it's time to establish your daily goals. The goals are displayed in your daily logs and you'll 'check off' these goals as you go throughout the day.
From the "My Profile" screen, go to "My Daily Goals". (You may also do this from Menu > Options > My Daily Goals).
The first time that you access this screen, you'll see the informational message shown here indicating what the + / - markers mean next to each goal value. We'll discuss this more in a moment.
iFitOne will setup a default list of Daily Goals that you can add to or modify to suit your specific dietary needs. The goal numbers are the number of servings/quantity of each item that you should have (or have no more than) each and every day.
The default list of goal items includes values based on the US Dept. of Agriculture's "My Pyramid" recommendations for daily food choices.
We'll discuss first how to create/modify goals, then give you some references to help you determine what numbers may work best for you.
|Creating a new Goal|
To create a new goal, use Menu > Add New Goal.
|'Have at least' type Goals|
Let's say that you would like to stick to having at least two cups/servings of Yogurt every day.
In the Goal Editor, enter the name of your goal.
For "Type", select "Have at least". This means that your goal is to try to have at least this many of this item every day.
When updating your daily records you will see this goal value as a reminder to help you stick to your goals.
|'Limit to' type Goals|
Perhaps you have a never-ending desire for Oreo Cookies and you want to start cutting back on having so many of the sweet/fatty foods every day.
You can set a 'limit to' type goal which means that you would like to have no more than this number of servings each day.
The summary pages in iFitOne will reflect how well that you've done at achieving both your 'Have at least' and 'Limit to' goals by displaying a percentage of how you've been doing at meeting these goals.
|Setting the order of your Goals|
You can now see the new goals that have been added to the Daily Goals list.
The order in which the goals appear on this screen is the same order in which they will appear in your Daily Log screen that you will be using to record your information throughout the day.
If you would like to change the order of any of the items, use the Menu > Move Up/Down commands to arrange the list in the order that is most convenient for you.
You may also quickly adjust the value of any goal by using the left/right navigation buttons to decrease or increase your goal values.
|Goals in your Daily Log|
This is how your goals will appear in your Daily Log entry screen.
As you go throughout the day, you will quickly update the counts/servings of each item that you have had. The highlighted number at the right is your goal count.
Simply use the left/right navigation buttons to record the value and get back to what you were doing.
Tip: Moving to the right is good. Moving to the left is bad. "Limit to" type goals have their values shown in reverse order.
As you update the values, the color of the goal count will change. Green is the default color for 'good' and 'red' means you need to pay attention to this goal and focus more on achieving it. You can also change the colors to your own personal preference from the Options screen in iFitOne.
|Selecting Goals that Will Work for You|
Selecting your daily goals is based on many factors. It depends on any current medical/religious dietary restrictions you may have as well as things in your diet that you've been struggling with and want to make adjustments to.
The Food Pyramid concept is widely used to provide guidelines as to what food groups are needed, healthy as well as those to limit in your daily diet.
Here are some useful links to give you a direction to help you in selecting your iFitOne daily goals:
|The Mayo Clinic provides some great resources with food pyramid guides for many different types of diets including Vegetarian, Asian, Mediterranean and Latin American.|
|The United States Department of Agriculture has a very convenient tool to help you calculate how much you need of each food group daily. Try their MyPyramid Plan tool|
|The UK National Health Services "5 A Day" site features guidelines and advice to help you get the necessary fruits and vegetables for a healthy life. |
|Recording Your Eating and Exercise - Your Daily Log|
From any of iFitOne main screens, you will always find the "Log Entry" button at the lower left corner of the display. Press this any time to open up today's diet and activity log to update your information.
|The Daily Log Entry screen makes it easy for you to quickly open it, record your changes and get back to whatever it was you were doing.|
When opening the Log screen, the log for today's date will be displayed. If you need to edit or adjust the values for yesterday, simply press Left to go back a day.
Five different mood levels are represented by icons ranging from 'It's-tax-day' sad to 'I-won-the-lottery' happy. This is entirely optional, but you may find some interesting patterns form over time as you track your progress and you'll see how your mood may have played a part.
Press the Center/Action button or tap to open the weight picker screen to change your weight value. You do not need to weigh yourself or update this value every day. It will use the last recorded weight until you change it.
Whether you're measuring your waist, chest, pants size, change the value to reflect where you are. A simple method of going by your pants size is just fine. If your size 34 pants are feeling a little more loose than normal today, record 33. A bit tight? Enter 35. Don't worry so much about the accuracy of every measurement.
Your goal is to get into the habit of frequently recording where you are and how you've been doing to help you stay motivated, see the goal at the end of the road and succeed.
On the right side of the screen you will see your goal values. The color gives you a quick reference as to how you're doing towards reaching that goal.
As illustrated in the screen, the goal for Yogurt is 2 servings a day. Right now there are none recorded, so it's colored Red. (This item needs attention)
As you change the number from 0 to 1 to 2, the color will change and eventually turn Green once you've reached your goal for the day.
For "Limit to" type goals, these start out at Green (you haven't had any yet) and go to red once you exceed your limit for the day.
If you haven't entered any information into
your log yet, you'll see this informational screen.
Tracking your daily diet has never been easier.
Use left/right to quickly update the
servings/count as you go through the day.
Some Ideas for Goals
The goals you set don't necessarily need to be for food.
Perhaps you're trying to cut back on cigarettes, or you're using a pedometer and want to set a goal of 5000 steps a day.
For those of you with email addictions where you're checking your email too often and getting less done as a result, you might set a goal to check your email only three times a day.
The possibilities are endless. If there is anything in your life that you want to improve on or get under control, create a goal for it in iFitOne and keep track of it on a daily basis to help you reach your goals!

|Tracking Your Activity and Exercise|
iFitOne makes it easy to quickly record your activity or exercise. Record the activity, location, time, duration, calories burned and distance. You can enter as much or as little information as you wish.
|Adding an Activity|
From the Daily Log screen, press "Activity +" to enter the activity entry screen.
Fill in the Activity Name by pressing the Center/Action button or tapping on the field.
|Select your activity from one of the activities in the list, or enter your own.|
You may add your own activities to the list and remove any activities that you won't be using.
|The Location field works just like the Activity field, and you can use this if you wish to record where the activity took place.|
|Optionally fill in the time, duration, distance, calories and notes about your exercise.|
To make quick adjustments to the time or calories entries, use the left/right buttons to change the values. Tap or press the center/action button on these items if you wish to edit their values in a full screen editor.
|Once you've added the activity, you'll see it appear in your daily log above your diet goals.|
You may add as many activities as you wish each day.
|Seeing your Results|
Once you've entered your log for the day, your results will show up in the iFitOne Monthly View, Chart and Summary Views.
The Month will display your weight and size on every day that you've updated your daily log.
The icon displayed here shows your mood/feeling for that day, however you can change this to show:
- Activity Status
- Weight trend
- Size trend
Use Menu > Icon to change the type of icon that is displayed for each day.
To change from the Month View to the Chart View or Summary Views, simply tap on the screen or press the Center/Action button.
We're only showing one day here (the first day of using iFitOne), so there isn't a whole lot to see yet.
We've included a more complete image below to give you an idea of how it might look after using it for a few months.
The Chart view can display weight, size and mood (or any combination of these three) at the same time.
Use the Menu options or press left/right to quickly change what's displayed in the Chart.
Your goal values are shown at the bottom. In this example, the weight scale is at the left and the size scale is at the right.
To change from the Chart View to the Month View or Summary Views, simply tap on the screen or press the Center/Action button.
TIP: Save the images and send them to yourself or a friend to show them how you've been doing!
Use Menu > Image > Email/Save to save the image.
The iFitOne Summary View consists of the following pages:
- Diet goals (one or more pages)
iFitOne gives you a great snapshot of how you've been doing towards reaching your diet and fitness goals.
The Weight page provides details on your weight loss as well as a recommendation as to how many calories you would need to burn with exercise (in the absence of any dieting) to keep on track with your weight loss goals.
So even if you don't cut back on calories in your diet, this can give you an idea of how much exercise you can do to keep dropping the weight.
Much like the Weight page, you'll get a great overview of how you are doing towards reaching your goal size. You'll also see on average, how many days it takes to lose a size.
The Activity Page tells you how many times you've recorded activities since you started using iFitOne.
It's motivational to see just how many calories you've burned (if you're tracking calories in your activity entries) as well as a summary of your average exercise time per week.
Your Goals - How are you doing?
See at a glance how you've been doing at keeping up with your daily goals.
A percentage of success is calculated for every day that you update your iFitOne daily log and the average is displayed to help you see how well you've been doing and to focus on those areas that need work.
There are 6 or 7 goals displayed per page. The number of pages depends upon the number of daily goals that you have set.
|Staying Motivated with Reminders|
Now that we've covered the basics of getting your profile and goals set up, let's see how iFitOne can help you remember to keep your information up to date, every day.
From the iFitOne options page, go to 'Daily Entry Reminders'.
Press the Center/Action button or tap on the entry.
|You may choose up to three reminders to be put into your calendar every day to help remind you to update your iFitOne daily log.|
If you're synchronizing your calendar on your mobile device with your desktop, Exchange or any other calendar application, you'll also see the reminders there as well, so you're sure not to forget to keep your daily records up to date.
If you use shared calendars, you may wish to choose that these reminders be flagged as 'Private' so that others who have access to your shared calendar won't see the reminders.
Select a reminder status to suit your own preferences. You may choose from Busy, Free, Out of Office and Tentative. This status typically affects how the item is displayed (usually by color) within the calendar application on your mobile device and/or the calendar application that you may be synchronizing with.
|Illustrated in this image is how your iFitOne daily reminders will show up in your calendar using our Agenda One time management solution.|
It will also appear in any calendar application that you may be using on your mobile device as well.
As you can see here, iFitOne has also set up an iFitOne icon to be associated with the iFitOne reminders.

|Daily Status Reports in your Calendar|
There's no better way to stay motivated than to see how you've been doing and to see your progress as often as possible to keep you focused and thinking about what you need to do to succeed.
If you enable the 'Save Daily Log to Calendar' feature (found in iFitOne options), iFitOne will place a daily summary update in your calendar.
When you sync to your PC calendar or other calendar application, you'll also have a nice reminder there of how you've been doing as well as seeing your goals, day after day.

We've given you an overview of iFitOne and hopefully some ideas of how it can fit into your plans to get fit, lose weight and start on the road to a healthier and happier life.
Losing weight isn't easy, but with the help of iFitOne keeping you motivated to follow through with your daily goals, we believe you can succeed!
What makes iFitOne great is that it's designed to be as simple as possible by focusing on the basic ideas of daily motivation, keeping your goals in mind, helping you interact with it, each and every day.
There are countless other complex solutions out there that take too much time, are frustrating to use, and regardless of all of the details they can track are useless if you don't use them every day.
We're confident that you'll find iFitOne easy to use. It doesn't take a lot of your time to keep your information up to date. The friendly charts and summaries will help you keep the big picture in mind and keep you excited about reaching the next level of fitness and perhaps fitting into those pants that you haven't been able to wear in years.
