If you have a newer mac (Intel processor) you can install boot camp or parelells, then install windows as a second operating system.

Of course that's an awful lot of work just for this.

Looks nice, Downloaded now.

Oh, and Msmorga1, if you have really smart friends, they might be able to re-program it. Since it is so small it is possible...
If not try and find a windows emulator.(I have no idea if those even exist lol)

Or if he knows some other programming languages, he could code it in one that works on Macs. You know, like Java? :p

/mishtymae,
After 4 years of this diet you will end up weighting 546 pounds
However the most effective gain will be in first 44 months and you will hit plateau around 541 pounds

Currently your body needs about 2746 kcal daily

To start this WG program all you need is to eat only 1254 kcal more than you normally do!





I'm in love......:wubu:

This thing ROCKS!!

I made something similar in an excel file on my computer. You'll gain 74% of the weight in the first year every time. You'll have gained 93.5% of it after the second year and 98.5% after 3 years. The last year is always only a 3 or 4 pound gain and that's why it says you plateau around that point. I'd consider the plateau basically reached after year two.

For example:

If I eat exactly 5100 calories a day from now on I will weigh 392.2 pounds at my current exercise level, a 200lb gain. Throw that into the formula, starting from 192lbs (i've actually been gaining since the beginning of the year, albeit slowly) and here is the time line:

Starting weight - 192lbs

6 Months - 290.2lbs 50% of the weight gained

12 Months - 340.4lbs 74% gained

24 Months - 379.0lbs 93.5% gained

36 Months - 388.9lbs 98.5% gained

It might seem weird but if you see the numbers, it turns out the same every time. The percentage is always the same whether the numbers are higher or lower.

So, if you want to gain a significant amount of weight and stick to the plan, jump in calories and between 6 months and a year you'll see very significant change. After that the change is on a much smaller scale. It works the same way with weight loss. Everyone feels like they plateau at a certain level and it's true. When you hit that 93.5% mark the changes are so gradual you'd hardly notice.

Hooray for nutrition classes, even if you don't heed the rules!

You can't use Open Office to look at excel files on a Mac?

You can also use this as a weight loss graph. Just put in negative numbers for added calories.

Also what equation did you use for calculating calories to keep current weight?
