||I've been experimenting with the new food journal summary reports. It looks like if you accurately record both your exercise and food, we can accurately estimate weight loss or gain over the short term. As an example, I'm assembling a chart that displays your last 2 weeks of actual weight and your next 2 weeks of predicted weight loss based on your last 2 weeks of entries. As we get more data it will become more accurate. Predictions can be based off an average of a month or more. It will be cool to start recording the predictions and then plotting that right along side the actuals. We already have a place that is recording actuals so adding predictions to the mix should be pretty easy.
I think there is quite a story to be told by the average calorie values for the summary reports. We could get into rolling averages of 14 days covering the last 30 days (take the last 14 days, average it together, go back one day in time, do the same thing, go back one day, do the same thing).
I've been overall extremely happy with how well the new food journal works. While its still not as robust as some other food journals out there as far as entries go, that is changing fast. We are as a group adding almost 100 records a day to the community library.
