Energy Balance and the Philosophy Behind Graphite
The key to achieving and maintaining your weight loss goals is learning how your body operates, and balancing the amount of energy you take in with the amount you use up.
According to the 2008 Kaiser Permanente center for Health Research study — the largest study of weight loss ever conducted in North America — the number one predictor of weight loss success is whether or not you track your energy balance.
Graphite gives you the support you need to track your energy balance. We have made Graphite simple, easy-to-understand, and easy-to-use. Without clutter and other distractions — such as advertisements — Graphite allows you to focus on the most important thing of all… YOURSELF. You are worth the effort.
I just had to pass along a note to you guys and say that this is one beautiful app!... The demo video showed that Graphite is very intuitive and easy-to-use, which is far more than I can say for other tracking apps I have used.
