I'm currently using this package. I would have to dig to find any info as to what is the company name and their website. I think that if you do a search on the net with "DietLog", you
should find it. IIRC, that's how I found them.

The program works mostly fine on my 2100. It is showing its age, and doesn't adapt perfectly to the larger screens. There are a few oddities here and there as they didn't follow the
Newton user interface convention very well. Since the beginning of the year, I've noticed that if I access my personal info, it doesn't remember my birthday very well, since it keeps
only the 2 last digits of the year and substitute the current year for the first 2 digits. So, as a result, it thinks I was (or will?) born on 2061! Everytime I need to access my info,
I need to make sure I erase my birth year and write it using the 4 digits.

However, that's the only program in its category. It's very good and very complete. They provide a good food database, but I find myself often entering new foods. It's obvious that it
hasn't been updated in years...
