||The synchronization with
VidaOne Diet &
is fully integrated into MyPersonalDiet.
It is compatible with VidaOne Diet & Fitness
3 for Windows!
Like the Windows Mobile and Palm OS versions, it fully synchronizes with
VidaOne Diet & Fitness 3 for Windows 7, Vista and XP via Wi-Fi.
Any information you enter in
MyPersonalDiet for iPhone synchronizes with your PC and vice-versa,
including your routes recorded with your iPhone or downloaded from a supported
Garmin device on your PC.
In some cases, it is more convenient to enter data using a PC
keyboard, such as journal notes. Or if your iPhone or iPod Touch
is damaged, lost or stolen, or if you switch to another mobile
device, the synchronization brings back your valuable data on
your new phone. Synchronization is a must when you record
information about yourself.
Whereas some other software synchronization is basically one-way
(e.g. SyncDocs where a complete file/database crushes the other, discarding some of the latest data
you entered) , VidaOne synchronization reconciles each piece of
information, ensuring that your most recent data are merged together, as you
All is needed is a Wi-Fi connection (along possible setting adjustments to your PC's firewall to let the connection go through as it is with any software that
requires network access).
Due to some iPhone technical characteristics, 3rd-party applications such as
MyPersonalDiet cannot synchronize via iTunes, so Wi-Fi is the only option to
connect to a computer on a local network such as a home network. Also,
3rd-party applications cannot share data among themselves, so the data entered
in MyPersonalDiet cannot be shared with MySportTraining
and vice-versa. Fortunately, the synchronization with VidaOne Diet & Fitness
allows the same data to be replicated in both applications.
About iTunes backups: you do not need VidaOne Diet & Fitness to
make iTunes backup of your VidaOne apps and data on your iPhone. iTunes will
automatically backup all your applications and their data independently of using
VidaOne Diet & Fitness or not. It should nonetheless noted that some customers
have notified us that iTunes failed to properly restore backups but got all
their VidaOne data back by restoring them from VidaOne Diet & Fitness.
Live GPS Recording: record your routes using the location capabilities of your iPhone
MyPersonalDiet lets you record the route of your outdoor workout while you
are doing it. Not only does it show you the actual location, speed and pace, you
can also view at any time the route you've followed and where you are on Google
You can also listen to your favorite music while recording your route,
directly from MyPersonalDiet.
While recording, you can add laps in various ways. You can enter a lap
manually (by tapping a Lap button), or you can set an auto-lap by distance (e.g.
every 5 mi/km) or by position (e.g. every time you past nearby a specific
position). Laps data is then stored with the workout's route information.
Once the workout is completed and saved, you can later review the route, and
email it to some friend as a GPX file. And if you are using
VidaOne Diet &
Fitness, the route will also be available on your PC, where you can review it,
email it or print it.
Additionally, if you are using a supported Garmin device with
VidaOne Diet & Fitness, the recorded maps can also
be viewed from MyPersonalDiet.

A powerful search lets you find foods in a split-second. MyPersonalDiet also keeps track of your favorite foods, making
it super fast to build meals with the food you consume the most.

proteins and fat. MyPersonalDiet will notify you whenever you select a food that does not match your diet plan (such as choosing
food too rich in carbs while being on a low-carb diet).

servings, which is best when consuming prepared foods.

heart rate, and MyPersonalDiet calculates how many calories (or kJ) you used and body fat you burnt.
Quick and easy monitoring and tracking
- The Today screen displays your daily energy goal and actual status. Immediately see whether you can consume (or not) more food.
- The Results screen summarizes your accomplishments since the beginning of your diet regarding:
- Your current weight vs. how much you should weigh at the moment.
- Your eating habits (whether you consume too much or not enough food).
- Your exercising habits (whether you exercise enough or not).
- What to do to reach your weight goal in terms of eating and exercising.
- The day view shows a summary of calories (or kJ) or any nutrients you wish to track (such as carbs, sugar, etc).
Quickly find out how much of them you consumed and eliminate any guesswork about how much you can still consume (or not)
for the remaining of the day while staying within your limits.
- The day view also presents a diet summary that displays your weight trend from the start of your diet independently of the too-often discouraging but normal
and usual daily weight fluctuations. The weight trend is what matters, not the daily fluctuations.
- The month view shows an immediate snapshot of your efforts overall: you can immediately see for any day if your weight is on track with your goal or not, helping you make a prompt assessment of your situation and take the right decisions.
- The chart view lets you visualize information for you to make the right decisions:
- Calories: consumption/expenditure, net and per hour.
- Vital signs: body weight, body fat, blood pressure and blood markers (e.g. cholesterol).
- Water and nutrients consumption.
- Workout duration, distance and heart rate.
Essential for people with food restrictions
- Enter daily limits (minimum or maximum) about nutrients that have a direct impact on your health, such as glucose, cholesterol, fiber, sugar, sodium, etc.
Not only will this help to stay within your daily limits, but it is
indispensable for anyone whose health highly depends on limiting the consumption of specific nutrients (e.g. diabetics,
people with high cholesterol, people with high blood pressure, etc.)
This is also useful for people that need to consume a minimum of specific nutrients, such as calcium.
- As you
enter meals, MyPersonalDiet can show you how much of each nutrient you have consumed for the day, and whether you can
consume more, have reached or exceeded the maximum (and by how much). This eliminates the guesswork about what you can
or not eat for the rest of the day.
- Track blood work analysis and markers (such as cholesterol, triglyceride, etc).
You can also instantly chart any blood marker over any period of time to see any important trends.
