VidaOne is one of the best health-tracking software programs in terms of features it offers. For starters, the fitness software tracks a wide range of body measurements, including weight, age and body mass index (BMI). You can input specific weight-loss goals and use the digital journal to keep personal notes about your efforts. VidaOne also has a wellness-management feature that allows you to track your moods, sleep quality and medication use, all of which it considers important factors that can affect your overall health.

This exercise software makes it easy to gauge your progress on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. A calendar gives you a complete monthly summary of your nutrition and workouts. You can also view graphs and reports for all the data the software tracks.

VidaOne Diet & Fitness also offers some unique features that set it apart from its competitors. Most notable is its compatibility with popular mobile devices, a rarity among fitness software. Although you download VidaOne locally, the workout software syncs with Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone, Palm and Apple devices. With the portability this affords, you can record your progress as it occurs, no matter where you are.

Similarly, the software syncs with many Polar heart rate monitors, Garmin sports watches and GPS devices. You can download your workout schedule and any of your body measurements, such as BMR, BMI and LBM, directly into VidaOne for a more complete health assessment.

Perhaps one of the best features of VidaOne Diet & Exercise is that it allows an unlimited number of users. This is notable because most fitness software applications limit the number of unique logins you can create. With VidaOne, the whole family can create a login and track their personal fitness.

VidaOne Diet & Fitness has several integrated diet plans that you can choose from, including ones that are vegetarian, plant-based, low-carb and based on the USDA Food Pyramid. Few fitness programs we reviewed offer this. With other applications, you have to create your own diet plan by selecting your own food for each meal.

VidaOne provides healthy guidelines for attaining your goal weight. Once you have established your goal weight, this fitness software will calculate a realistic time period for the weight loss or gain and the number of calories per day you will need to record in order to stay on track.

When you use the workout software's meal planner, VidaOne alerts you to food choices that do not fit into the diet you have chosen. If you stray from the plan you have chosen, the software suggests alternatives from its food database.

VidaOne's food database contains more than 8,000 unique items catalogued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. While a few other products on our lineup boast larger databases, VidaOne's database lacks few items. You can also add any custom food item you want. You can tag your favorites for single-click input in the future.

You can use the food organizer to customize your food requirements to include only the foods you know you should eat for the particular diet you have selected. You can add or delete foods at any time and take advantage of the meal-scheduling feature. You can also select which nutrients or dietary items you want to track, such as total carbs, protein, fat, calcium and cholesterol. There are even some more obscure nutrients such as phosphorous and potassium.
