Active Client - The “active client” is the selected client - the one you're currently working with. This client's name appears in the Client Selection List at the top of your screen when you select the Client function. You can select the active client by clicking the down arrow in the Client Selection List and selecting the desired client. The Professional and higher allow you to organize your clients in up to 26 “Client Folders.”

“All Foods” Tab - This is a tab in the Food Log. It always contains every food item in the nutrient intake. You can organize and analyze your Food Log by Meals or snacks by copying the food items (and/or PFI's and Recipes) from the “All Foods” Tab to any of the six Meal and/or snack tabs.

“All Meals” Tab - This is a tab in the Meal Manager. This tab always contains every Meal in the Meal Manager. You can organize (and analyze) your Meals by copying them from the “All Meals” Tab to any other Meal notebook tab. You can add, edit, and delete “Meals” Tabs as you wish.

“All Personal Food Items” Tab - This is a tab in the Personal Food Item Manager. It always contains an alphabetical listing of every PFI in the nutrient intake.

“All Recipes” Tab - This is a tab in the Recipes Manager. This tab contains every Recipe in the Recipe Manager. You can organize (and analyze) your Recipes by copying them from the “All Recipes” Tab to any other Recipe notebook tab. You can add, edit, and delete “Recipes” Tabs as you wish.

Append - When you “append” information, you add it to the existing information. This way you lose no information. For example, if you “append” to a Meal, you are adding items to the Meal.

Army AR600-9 Body Fat - “AR600-9” is the U.S. Army’s regulations regarding a soldier’s body weight requirements. This document explains how to derive these values by using body fat as the primary guide.

Auto-Record List - A list of food items and/or exercises that a client eats or performs every day. The Auto-Record List is a list of items that you can create for each and every client if you wish. Each time you record the very first intake item for the day for the selected client, the items in the Auto-Record List are automatically recorded for you.

Calendar Images - NutriBase uses images to provide feedback regarding the status of particular calendar days. You can select these images in the Clients Criteria section of NutriBase. Note: When you first copy Meal Plan days to a client's intake days, the images on the calendar will be NutriBase Apple icons. This is because you have not yet acknowledged that the food items copied to that date have been eaten. You can edit the intake for that day to conform to the actual intake (as opposed to the intake recommended by the Meal Plan). When you click the “Save” button for that day, the NutriBase Apple icon will change into a “Thumbs Up” or “Thumbs Down” icon as appropriate.

Client-Specific - Relating specifically to a specific client.

Cherry Pick Dates - “Cherry pick” dates from a NutriBase calendar individually and at random. Cherry pick dates by clicking them. Normally, you would cherry pick non-sequential dates since it is often easier to pick contiguous dates using the range option. This function is typically used to select dates for a multi-day intake. You can also cherry pick items from some NutriBase list boxes.

Cherry Pick Items - You can “cherry pick” items from some list boxes by pressing the Ctrl key and while continuing to hold this key down, you can click the items you wish to select with the mouse cursor. You can also cherry-pick dates from certain NutriBase calendars by simply clicking the dates.

Client Folders - NutriBase provides up to 26 “Client Folders” for you. Each folder contains an alphabetical listing of the clients you have assigned to that folder. You can organize your Recipes into categories with these folders. You could organize clients by special needs (weight-loss, diabetic, body-building, etc.) or by location (Bally’s, Bill's Gym, Diet Center, etc.). Click the “Folders” button to manipulate these folders and their contents.

Client Group - A “client group” is a group of clients you have selected and identified as a group. Defining a client group allows you to analyze a group of clients as if they were a single entity. This gives you an analysis of what the group as a whole did. (NutriBase also allows you to analyze each member of the group individually if you like). Client groups are supported in NutriBase Professional and higher only. Use the client group “Create” button to define a client group.

The Cloud - The “Cloud” is a popular way to refer to a server or to a network of servers that belong to (or are leased by) your sync service provider for the purpose of providing you their services.

Column Header - A “column header” is topmost cell of a spreadsheet view in NutriBase. It contains the column heading in the form of a text string. An example of a header would be “Food Name.” You can drag the column header to the left or right to re-sequence the column order. You can drag the right edge of a column header to resize it. NutriBase will remember the new width for you. Each column resize is specific to the food category you are perusing.

Copy Command - The Copy Command lets you copy information (usually a text string or a graphic image) to the Windows Clipboard (a temporary storage area that your operating system sets aside for you). This allows you to save this information to paste into another Windows document of some sort later. To copy text to the clipboard, you must select the information you wish to copy. Select information by clicking your left mouse button down at the point you wish to begin selecting. Drag the mouse to the end of the text or graphic and release the mouse button when you reach the end of the information you want to copy to the clipboard. To copy a graphical image, click on the image (to give it the focus), then press “Alt-Print Scrn” (That is, hold down the Alt key. Then, while still holding the Alt key down, press the Print Scrn key. Let them go simultaneously.) This copies the image to the Windows clipboard. To actually copy this information to the Windows Clipboard, press “Ctrl-C.” That is, hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard, then, while still holding it down, press the “C” key once and then let them both go. A similar command is the cut command.

Cost Database - NutriBase features an updateable and editable Food Cost Database. This feature allows you to more conveniently and quickly edit existing food costs, add new ones, or delete existing records. By letting you display all the ingredients used in your Recipes at once, you can add cost information without having to look up each ingredient in the database or in an individual Recipe. This vastly simplifies the task of costing your Recipes, Meals, and/or Meal Plans.

CPF Ratio - The “CPF Ratio” is the ratio of calories from Carbohydrates, Protein, and Fat - in that order - in a client's intake, Recipe, or Meal Plan. A CPF Ratio of “40-30-30” indicates that an intake, Recipe, or Meal Plan contains 40% of its calories from Carbohydrates, 30% of its calories from Protein, and 30% of its calories from Fat. You can assign CPF Ratio goals to clients. NutriBase provides the CPF Ratios for intakes, Recipes and Meal Plans. The CPF Ratio tells you a lot about a client's intake, a Recipe, or a Meal Plan. NutriBase will also display the PCF Ratio (if you select this option in the User Preferences). If a food, Recipe, or Meal contains alcohol, NutriBase will give you the CPFA ratio.

CNF Data - CNF stands for “Canadian Nutrient Files,” which in this product, consists of the Canadian Nutrient Files, the data contained in our Medical Nutritionals food category, the data contained in our Vitamins and Mineral Supplements food category, and the data contained in our Commercial Ingredients food category.

CSV - Comma Separated Values. When you see “CSV” after a report name (in the “Reports” Tab), it means that you can export the report you create into “Comma Separated Value “ format. This is a text file that you can import into spreadsheets and databases. The file extension is “csv.”

Cut Command - The Cut Command lets you cut (remove) information (usually a text string or a graphic image) from a document and copy it to the Windows Clipboard (a temporary storage area that your operating system sets aside for you). This allows you to save this information to paste into another Windows document of some sort later. To cut information to the clipboard, you must select the information you wish to cut. Select information by clicking your left mouse button down at the point you wish to begin selecting. Drag the mouse to the end of the text or graphic and release the mouse button when you reach the end of the information you want to copy to the clipboard. To actually cut this information to the Windows Clipboard, press “Ctrl-X.” That is, hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard, then, while still holding it down, press the “X” key once and then let them both go. The information you have selected will disappear from the initial document and be available for you in the clipboard. A similar command is the copy command.

Drag and Drop - To “drag and drop” an item, use the left mouse button of your mouse. Point the mouse cursor at the item you wish to “drag” with the mouse cursor. Press the left mouse button and while continuing to hold the button down, “drag” your mouse cursor to the new location for the item you selected. After you have the cursor in place, “drop” the item by releasing the left mouse button. NutriBase offers the drag and drop capability in several locations.

Enteral Nutrition - Tube-feed formulations. Enteral Nutrition is a way to provide food through a tube placed in the nose and into the stomach or the small intestine. NutriBase provides data for these types of foods in the Medical Nutritionals food category.

Exercise Intake - An “exercise intake” is the total exercise that a client performs during some time period. Normally, that time period is one day. When recording an exercise intake with NutriBase, you can select from your Exercise category lists, from previously recorded days of exercise intakes, or from workouts.

Food Log - Also called a “nutrient intake” or “intake,” is a listing of the foods a person eats (along with their serving sizes and nutrient information). A “daily intake” is a Food Log for a single day, a “three day intake” is a Food Log for all the foods eaten in a three-day period, etc.

Frame - A rectangular frame that borders an image. You can resize a frame (and the image inside it) by dragging any of the square “handles” on its four edges.

Global Ranking - NutriBase will perform “rankings” for you. A ranking is a sort. You can sort a list of foods (for example, all foods listed in your Fruit food category) from high-to-low or from low-to-high based on the values for any nutrient (you can do this by simply clicking the column header for any nutrient value while it is displayed on the screen). You can also perform a “global ranking.” That is, you can select as many or as few of the food categories and conduct your ranking across these selected food categories.

HTML Format - This is the format of World Wide Web pages. HTML is short for “Hypertext Markup Language.” NutriBase Professional versions of NutriBase will let you save any file in HTML format - just specify HTML as the format you wish to save to. This means you can now publish some NutriBase reports, Recipes, Meal Plans, or documents as a Web Page. The NutriBase word processor also lets you save files in RTF (a generic word processor format you can open with MS Word) format. The HTML option gives you another option for electronic delivery of your work.

IF Diet - See details under the “Intermittent Fasting Diet” topic below.

Information Topics - On your Home Window, you will find the Information Tab. This tab leads you to a wealth of information. In Professional and higher editions, over 170 topics are available. Each topic is stored in PDF format (either on your hard drive or on our web site). You can email these information topics to your clients or print them out and use them as handouts for your clients.

Intermittent Fasting Diet - This is a type of diet that requires you to use different calorie goals for each day of the week. For example you may have “fasting” days on say, Mondays and Tuesdays. In this case, you may take in, say, 600 calories on these two days and, say 2400 calories per day on the remaining five days of the week. This type of dieting may help you create a 3600 calorie deficit (1800 x 2 days) each week that could help you lose one lb. per week. The IF Diet is one of the most popular diets of 2013. Perform a web search on “IF Diet” to learn more about the various strategies used in IF dieting.

Kilocalorie (Kcal) - This is the more formal name for what we refer to today as a “large calorie” or “calorie.” A “small calorie” or “gram calorie” (“cal”) approximates the energy needed to increase the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1 °C. This is about 4.2 joules. The “large calorie” (kilogram calorie), “dietary calorie,” or “food calorie” (“Cal”) approximates the energy needed to increase the temperature of 1 kilogram of water by 1 °C. This is exactly 1,000 small calories or about 4.2 kilojoules. The term “Calorie” is used to mean the large calorie or kcal.

Key Field - A “key field” is a column of data in a relational database that contains unique numbers or strings. It is used to link data from two or more databases.

Macro - A “macro” is a string of characters that begin and end with a caret symbol (^). NutriBase uses macros as placeholders for information that can be used in macro-driven NutriBase reports. For example, ^CompanyName^ holds your company name, ^Date^ hold’s today’s date, and ^DesWeight^ holds your client’s desired body weight. Anytime you type these into a report template that you create, the information that the macro holds will replace that macro in the final report.

Meal - A “Meal” is a collection of food items and/or Recipes that make up a Meal or snack. Along with Recipes, Meals serve as the building blocks for Meal Plans. Meals are stored in one of seven tabs: the “All Meals” Tab, plus three Meals and three snacks. Each notebook is stored in a Meal Folder.

Meal Folders - NutriBase provides up to 26 “Meal Folders” for you. Each folder contains a tabbed notebook in which you can organize your Meals. You can organize your Meals into categories with these folders. (For instance, you could create a folder for Body Building Meals, Diabetic Meals, Heart Recovery Meals, etc.) Click the “Folders” button to manipulate these folders and their contents.

Meal Item - A “Meal item” is a food item from the nutrient database, a PFI (Personal Food Item), or a Recipe you are adding to a Meal. (In a Recipe, we call the added items “ingredients.”)

Meal Plan - In NutriBase, a “Meal Plan” is a collection of food items, PFI's, Recipes, and Meals that are organized into up to three Meals and three snacks for up to four weeks. Some professionals refer to these as “cycle menus.”

NutriBase Menu Icon - This is the icon in the upper left corner of NutriBase. Clicking this icon will lead you to a variety of functions and options that you can use or view.

Next Best Food To Eat (NBFTE) button - “NBFTE” is the acronym for “Next Best Food To Eat.” The NutriBase “NBFTE” button will tell you the next best food to eat (in a common serving size) based on what you have eaten so far today compared to your nutrient goals for the day. These goals are normally the DRI for your age and gender, but you may customize them as desired. The first item in your search results will be the most effective food for bringing you closer to each of your daily nutrition goals. The second food item will be your second best option for bringing you closer to all of your daily nutrition goals. Etc.

Nutrient Density (ND) - The Nutrient Density of a nutrient is the percentage of the user’s goal for that goal per calorie. You can think of it as a “Single Nutrient NDI.”

Nutrient Density Index (NDI) - The Nutrient Density Index is an estimate of the mean (“average”) value - per calorie - for the sum of the total amounts of each of up to 25 nutrient factors, most of which are specified in the DRI and are tracked in the USDA Nutrient Database. We call this an “estimate” because it is not always possible to know the values for every nutrient we want to evaluate.

Nutrient Density View - The NutriBase Nutrient Density View lets you display the nutrient values for say, 100 kcal “servings” of all fresh vegetables in a spreadsheet view. You can specify “servings” in your choice of grams or calories. This gives you an “apples-to-apples” comparison for all nutrients for hundreds or even thousands of vegetables at once (NutriBase displays nutrient data in a spreadsheet view). Identify the foods that provide the highest nutrition per calorie. You can rank foods on-screen while using the Nutrient Density View.

Overwrite - When you “overwrite” the information, you delete the existing data and replace it with the new information.

Parenteral Nutrition - Nutrient injections; intravenous feeding. Also called “parenteral alimentation.” NutriBase provides data for these types of foods in the Medical Nutritionals food category.

Paste - To “paste” something into a file means to copy something you've cut or copied into the file at the cursor location. To paste text into your cursor location, you must first have some information (usually text or graphics) that you've cut or copied into the Windows Clipboard (a temporary storage area that your operating system sets aside for you). Place your cursor where you want to insert this information and press “Ctrl-v”. This is, hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard, then, while still holding it down, press the “v” key once and then let them both go.

PCF Ratio - The “PCF Ratio” is the ratio of calories from Protein, Carbohydrates, and Fat - in that order - in a client's intake, Recipe, or Meal Plan. A PCF Ratio of “15-55-30” indicates that an intake, Recipe, or Meal Plan contains 15% of its calories from Protein, 55% of its calories from Carbohydrates, and 30% of its calories from Fat. You can assign PCF Ratio goals to clients. NutriBase provides the PCF Ratios for Recipes and Meal Plans. The PCF Ratio tells you a lot about a client's intake, a Recipe, or a Meal Plan. One day, many popular diets may be defined by their PCF Ratio. NutriBase will also display the CPF Ratio. When Alcohol is present, we automatically display the PCFA ratio for you.

Personal Food Item (PFI) - The PFI is a food item you have added to NutriBase. This occurs when you find a food item that isn’t already in the NutriBase database. You can also create a PFI by highlighting an existing food item, then clicking the Add to “PFI” button. PFI’s listed in your “Personal Foods” Tab can be edited as desired. You can change the serving size if you like. You can right click on any PFI and send that PFI to a Food Log, Recipe, Meal, or Meal Plan as desired.

PFI Folders - NutriBase provides up to 26 “PFI Folders” for you. Each folder contains a tabbed notebook in which you can organize your PFI's (Personal Food Items). You can organize your PFI's into categories with these folders. (For instance, you could create a folder for Body Building PFI's, Vegan PFI's, Heart Recovery PFI's, etc.) Click the “Folders” button to manipulate these folders and their contents.

Process Loss - When you cook a Recipe, your Recipe will often weigh less than its original non-cooked weight. This “process loss” is due to loss of water. In NutriBase, you can specify the process loss as, say, 40%. When you do this, the software will calculate the cooked weight and base its nutrient analysis on the cooked weight. A process loss of 40% means that a Recipe that started with a weight of 100 grams would weigh 60 grams when cooked. This variable is helpful in Recipes for commercial use. It helps NutriBase calculate the serving size weight more accurately.

Program Data Folder - Everything you ever create with NutriBase exists in the Program Data Folder. This data includes Recipes, client information, Food Logs, etc. The Setup Program automatically knows the default location for the ProgramData Folder (it can differ from one Windows version to another). However, if you plan to synchronize your data across multiple remotely located computers, you will need to tell NutriBase where your Sync Folder is located. Information on how to do this exists in this manual - consult the Table of Contents.

PUF List - Every food item that you add to a Meal will automatically be added to your PUF (Previously Used Foods) List. After you have added at least one food to your Food Log, the “PUF Display” button will appear. When you click this button, you will see an alphabetical listing of all your PUF’s. This saves you time and effort by eliminating the need to re-conduct previous searches. Select the PUF of interest and use it as desired. Use the right click to Delete any PUF you no longer want to see listed.

PUI List - Every food item that you add to a Recipe will automatically be added to your PUI (Previously Used Ingredients) List. After you have added at least one food to your Food Log, the “PUI Display” button will appear. When you click this button, you will see an alphabetical listing of all your PUI’s. This saves you time and effort by eliminating the need to re-conduct previous searches. Select the PUI of interest and use it as desired. Use the right click to delete any PUI you no longer want to see listed.

Quick Add List - NutriBase features a “Quick Add” option in your Food Log window. After you have added foods to a Food Log, you have the ability to highlight any number of these food items, right click, then select the option to add the “Food items to Quick Add.” Quick Add differs from PUF and PUI in that it remembers your serving size and Meal/snack selection. Quick Add can be a database food item, a PFI, a Recipe, or a Meal. You can click the “Quick Add” button to add any of these listed food items to any Food Log for any day.

Read Only - This is a term that refers to a file on your hard drive. It means you can “read” it (look at it and use it), but you cannot modify it and save it (at least with the same name). Read only files are protected from being overwritten.

Recipe Folders - NutriBase provides up to 26 “Recipe Folders” for you. Each folder contains a tabbed notebook in which you can organize your Recipes. You can organize your Recipes into major categories with these folders. (For instance, you could create a folder for Body Building Recipes, Vegan Recipes, Heart Recovery Recipes, etc.) Click the “Folders” button to manipulate these folders and their contents.

Remove - This function “removes” a selected item from the tabbed notebook card or list. The remove function is different from the delete function in that it doesn't permanently remove the selected item from NutriBase… the item remains in the ““All Recipes” Tab,” the ““All Foods” Tab,” or the “All PFI's tab.” To permanently remove a selected item, select the “All” Tab, then use the Delete function.

Report Header - A NutriBase “report header” is information that NutriBase can automatically insert as a banner to your reports. Normally you would include your business name, phone number, address, etc. You can include a graphical image (bit map) such as your logo if you wish. You create either type of header by clicking the “Header setup” button when it is offered.

Right Mouse Click - The "right mouse click" or "right click." See the right click topic, next.

Right Click - The "right click" or the "right mouse click." NutriBase supports over 95% of its functions via the right click. In most cases, you select an “item” (a Recipe, a PFI, a client name, a Meal, a Meal Plan, etc.) from a list, then click the right mouse button to produce a list of possible actions.

RTF - This is the acronym for “Rich Text Format.” It is a document format that defines the formatting features of a word processor page. It is a format that allows a wide variety of commercial word processors to read and interpret. Because the NutriBase word processor can save files in RTF format, you have the ability to open these files with your favorite external word processor. If you use MS Word, you can open RTF files then save them in Doc or Docx formats.

Selecting a Food Item - To select a food item, click on the food name or anywhere on the row containing the food name. (Click to the left of the food name if you want to highlight the entire row containing the food name.) Once you've selected a food item, you can print it, export it, view its nutrient content, turn it into a Personal Food Item, add it to an intake, add it to a Meal, or add it to a Recipe.

Scale a Recipe - If you have a Recipe that serves six, you can “scale” it to serve, say, three, 33, or 258 people.

Selecting an Item - To select an exercise, food item or other item from a list, click in the box to the left of the item or click the item itself.

Selecting a Range - To select a range of items, click the first item in you want to include, then hold the Shift key down and while continuing to hold it down, press the final item you wish to include. The software will select the entire range of items, including the first and the last items.

Selecting Data or Text - To select data or text, your use your mouse. Drag the mouse over the column headers to select columns. Drag the mouse over the box to the left of the rows to select rows. (To “drag” the mouse, point at the first cell you wish to select then press down your left mouse button. Then, while continuing to hold left mouse button down, move the mouse to the last cell you wish to select, then let go.

Slideshow - In the NutriBase Tracker, you can add one or more photographs for any user (including yourself). If you add multiple photographs, you can display them as a “slideshow.” The slideshow will display the photographs in chronological order (of the picture’s creation date).

Spreadsheet Format - This is a tabular display format that places columns and row of nutrient information on the screen. You can scroll vertically and horizontally to view more data. You can double-click on any food item to see all the nutrients for the selected food item at once. You can view the data in split-screen mode. You can resize and/or re-sequence columns. You can select a food item and copy it to an intake, PFI, Recipe, or Meal. You can jump to any food item or brand name. You can export selected data or print it.

SR Data - SR stands for “Standard Reference”. It is short for the USDA Nutrient Database for Standard Reference, which in this product, consists of the USDA SR data, the data contained in our Medical Nutritionals food category, the data contained in our Vitamins and Mineral Supplements food category, and the data contained in our Commercial Ingredients food category.

Substring Search - A “string” search is one that looks for a “string” of characters such as a food name. A “substring” search is one that looks for a “substring” of characters such as part of a food name. A “substring search” on a food name of “OAT” would locate food items like “OAT”, “GROATS”, “OATMeal”, etc. Normally, the shorter your search string, the greater number of “hits” you'll locate.

Success criteria - Success criteria are predefined nutrition and exercise goals. NutriBase helps you to establish daily goals for your clients. These goals may deal with nutrients and exercise. You can program in a set of criteria regarding these nutrients and exercise goals and have NutriBase award the client a “Thumbs Up” icon or “Thumbs Down” icon on their Calendar. This provides an instant snapshot of how well or how poorly a client is doing.

Sync Folder - A “synchronization folder” resides inside a folder created by a web-based synchronization service (like Dropbox or SkyDrive). NutriBase allows you to install its Program Data Folder inside your Sync Folder. (The Program Data Folder contains all the data you ever create in NutriBase - Recipes, client information, Food Logs, etc.) Using a Sync Folder allows you to sync your data across multiple computers that can be located anywhere around the world as long as they have Internet access.

Time Stamp - You can specify the time you ate your Meals by using the time stamp function. To do this, right click over your Food Log and select the “Time stamp Meals” option. This is a handy if you are a diabetic wanting to track your blood glucose measurements against time. You can also time stamp entries in your “Tracker” Tab.

Tool Bar - The “Tool Bar” is the row of icons across the top of the NutriBase Screen. Click these Explorer-style icons to perform major functions. The Tool Bar provides an alternative to using the Menu Bar options.

USDA SR Data - USDA SR stands for “USDA Standard Reference”. It is short for the USDA Nutrient Database for Standard Reference, which in this product, consists of the USDA SR data, the data contained in our Medical Nutritionals food category, the data contained in our Vitamins and Mineral Supplements food category, and the data contained in our Commercial Ingredients food category.

Web-Based Questionnaire - The SE Editions of NutriBase support the web-based questionnaire. The web-based questionnaire is a web-based marketing tool. The idea is to get, say, 100 hits a day, 700 hits a week, 35,000 hits a year. You gather contact information and personal information (like age, gender, height, weight, desired weight, etc.... a total of about a dozen facts). NutriBase can import this data directly and log these folks in as clients. You can offer a monthly newsletter to these folks as an incentive for completing your brief questionnaire.

NutriBase can read this Questionnaire information and import it. The contact information goes into the NutriBase Contact Manager and the personal information is used to create a Client Profile for each person. Once the client profile is logged into NutriBase, NutriBase makes calculations and “knows” 180+ things (calorie needs, nutrient goals, etc.) about that client. At this point, you can use NutriBase to generate a wide variety of reports for them. You can save these reports in PDF format and email them back or post them to your web site.

The idea is to market your services to your contact list. For instance, if your client is 43 years old and weighs 500 lbs., your email newsletter would offer services that 43 year old 500 lb. person would be interested in.

You can always add the SE feature after your initial purchase of the NutriBase Professional or higher edition.

Word Processing Format - NutriBase can save some reports into RTF - Rich Text Format. Microsoft invented this word processing format. Once you create and save a report into RTF format, you can open it using Microsoft Word. After you have it in Word, you can save it to a doc or docx file format for future use.

Workouts - In NutriBase, a “workout” is a combination of exercises at specified intensities or target heart rate training zones for a specified duration. For example, a workout could consist of 60 minutes of step aerobics, a 90-minute walk at 3 mph, and 45 minutes of weight training. You can save workouts and recall them whenever you wish. After you retrieve a workout and assign it to a client, you can edit it to reflect the actual workout if it differs from the saved one.

XLS - Excel file extension. When you see “XLS” or "Excel" after a report name (in the “Reports” Tab), it means that you can export the report you create into Excel format. The file extension for Excel is “xls.”
