Diet Tracker is a set of Perl codes to help you keep track of your diet progress. Diet Tracker uses a MySQl database to store and display your weight variations and calorie intake as you progress in your diet.

This software was inspired by Jeremy Zawodny's Excel spreadsheet that does almost the same thing. I wanted a web version that was simple and meant for single user and not finding any, wrote one.

Here are some key features of "Diet Tracker":

Web based
Track calorie intake per day
Graphs to track weight and intake history
Moving average calculation to even out jitters
Automatic BMI calculation
Clean interface




Create a MySQL database

Initialise the database with the SQL schema in mysql.txt (included in the download file)

chmod 755 all .pl files

If your server is configured to execute .cgi files instead of .pl

rename all .pl files to .cgi

edit all files in tmpl/ directory to reference the new .cgi files intead of .pl

Edit file to suit your needs


There is no inbuilt database admin interface. Use phpMyAdmin or mysqlman and edit to point to this admin interface URL. There is no user management (login, multiple users etc.). I personally hide my installation behind Apache's htaccess protection. The default HTML renders great in Firefox and Opera and looks pretty bad in IE 6.

What's New in This Release:

A bug in the intake template with an incorrect CSS filename was fixed along with a wrong weight difference indicator for 0 weight difference.
