Graphite is the simple and compelling way to lose weight and manage your fitness goals.
- Tired of weight-loss “experts” telling you what and how you can eat?
- Confused by complicated diet formulas or rules to follow?
- Ready to take control of your health and weight-loss destiny?
With Graphite, you have the freedom to choose your own foods. You get to set your personal weight loss and fitness goals, monitor your exercise, and easily track your results.
Graphite knows the truth... the same truth that doctors and fitness experts have been telling us for years. There is no substitute for tracking calories, and burning more of those calories each day than you consume. With that simple truth in mind, our web-based application makes it easy for you to manage your body weight and fitness goals.
How does it work?
Graphite is all about finding the right balance between the calories you consume and the calories you use. By using our resources, you'll understand exactly how the foods you eat, combined with the amount of physical activity you do, affects your weight.
Getting started couldn't be simpler:
- Create your free account and set up your profile
- Establish your weight loss goal and determine your calorie budget based your personalized metabolic rate calculation
- Start tracking meals, exercise and body weight
- Monitor your progress, stay motivated and see results
Look, the key to real and lasting weight loss is eating a calorie-controlled diet and engaging in regular physical activity. Graphite makes it easy to manage your calorie budget, eating the foods you enjoy in amounts that make sense for your particular weight loss goal and level of physical activity.
With Graphite, you can lose weight quickly or at a slow and steady pace. It's up to you. You determine how much you want to eat and how much physical activity you wish to engage in. It's all about flexibility and being able to lead a “normal” life while losing weight and getting fit.
What will you eat?
Your goal is to eat smart and stick to a calorie budget. Depending on your preferences or dietary needs, you should choose foods that are healthy and ones that you enjoy. The idea is to eat consciously and become “calorie aware,” making smart choices that fit into your calorie budget.
Does this mean that you shouldn't follow a diet plan? Of course not. Many Graphite members start their programs by following popular diet programs like South Beach, The Abs Diet, The Mediterranean Diet, et al. This is a perfectly good way to start to kick start your program. Some members opt for frozen convenience meals like Healthy Choice™ and Lean Cuisine™. It's really up to you. Your goal is to begin eating healthy and consciously.
Lastly, you are not aiming for perfection. You should try to stick to your calorie budget as closely as you can. There will certainly be days where you go over your budget. When that happens, you can use the information provided by Graphite's Calorie Graph to cut back on subsequent days or burn more calories with exercise. With Graphite, you will know exactly where things stand. Flexibility is the key to lasting success.
Always consult your doctor or healthcare provider when beginning a diet or exercise program.
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.
