Just a quick note of appreciation. I'm using your software for a student I teach who has many learning difficulties, but he is thrilled (and motivated) to be working with your software. Please continue the excellent work, and best of luck going forward.
Ed, Canada.

We are a homeschool family and we have been using your site for nearly 10 months now...we think you're great!

Keep up the fantastic work you do!
Warmest Regards
Sarah, New Zealand

I have been using your programs for years now and am really glad for a chance to say how FAB they are. They are better than any other I've found for educational purposes and a fraction of the price. All the kids who have used them at my school LOVE them and I think you are a very very clever man!!

Carb Counter - weight loss helper software

Recommended Minimum System: Pentium PC, Windows 95/NT4 or better e.g. XP, Vista, Windows 7, (Mac users click here), 32MB Ram.

A popular way to lose weight is to eat a low carbohydrate diet. To help, I have customised my calorie counter program to count carbs instead. There is a database of just under 1,400 foods to help you see just what you are eating and what to avoid. The program allows you to keep a daily diary of your food intake and it can display graphs showing your progress.

Program includes an uninstall facility. Compressed file size - 880 KB.

How To Use

When you start the program for the first time you will need to create a new user file by clicking the Add New User button. On your next visit to the front page a list of Users will appear. Click on your User name and you will be taken to the User Profile screen. Navigate through the program using the folder tabs at the top of each screen.

User Profile

Here you need to enter details about yourself in the appropriate boxes. The program calculates using metric measurements but I have added a facility to allow you to convert from imperial measurements too. Complete your details down to the Click To Calculate Your BMI etc. button. Clicking this will then calculate your Body Mass Index, Basal Metabolic Rate and the calories your body needs each day to maintain your current weight. Calorie intake figures of below 1,000 per day are not recommended for obvious reasons. You can alter your weight and carb intake figures here as often as you like. The program will keep track of these figures for the date shown at the top of the screen file.

Main Database

You will find just under 1,400 foods listed in the database list at the bottom of the screen. Search for a food or drink by typing in a single key word. Any results will appear in the box directly below the search button. To add an entry to your Diary, double click the selection in either the Search results list or the main database. The entry will then appear in the boxes at the bottom of the screen, split into the description and the figures for net carbohydrates, calories, fat, weight etc. A default 1 will appear in the quantity box which you can change to however many servings of that food or drink you have consumed or want. To make this entry appear in your diary for today, click the Add To Diary button. To change the diary date, use the drop down date boxes on the right of the screen. Once the Add To Diary button is clicked this will take you to the Diary screen where your entry should be displayed.

You can edit or add items in the top boxes. Click on the Add To Database button to add it to the bottom list. To delete an entry from the database, highlight it in the bottom list and click on the Delete From Database button.

By default the Add To Favourites box is checked so that every new entry you add to your diary is also added to your favourites list. To not add a food or drink to your favourites list, simply click on it to uncheck the box.


Use this screen to select from your list of favourites in the same way as the Main Database screen above.


Here are listed all the entries for the days you have selected. You can also use this feature to plan a day, by adding items from the Database or Favourites. The list is restricted to 15 items and next to each is listed the net carbohydrate value depending on how many servings you have. Alter the servings amount if required by clicking in the blue amount box next to the item and changing the figure. The total next to it will appear in Red. Click this new Red Button to alter the figures and re-calculate the totals at the bottom of your list. To remove an item from your Diary, click on the cross next to that item.

At the top of the screen is a drop down list of previously saved diary days. Select any one to view/edit that day.

Thanks for the TERRIFIC software at a great price!
Suzanne, USA

I've been a happy Olltwit user for years - I downloaded several of your programs back in '04, for my older son to use. Now it's time for my younger son to use them, and I've come back to your site to find 1) I owe you, and 2) you have more great stuff. I'm happy to pay up because I know the quality of your programs.
Mary Beth, Indiana, USA

We got your DVD and its fab!

Many thanks
