TODAY'S powerful personal computers give an edge to users who intelligently employ them in systems that manage everything from trading on the stock market to losing weight. For example, today you can download updated stock market prices to your computer, and use software to technically analyze this information in order to help you discover trends in rising and falling stock prices. You thus, theoretically, will have a greater chance of buying and selling stock shares profitably. This type of technical analysis can give users an edge similar to, and some say greater than, traditional fundamental analysis which requires in-depth knowledge of a myriad of business and economic factors that effect the stock's price. A computerized system that focuses on the analysis of changes in stock price levels the playing field and allows everyone an opportunity to profit from trading stocks, regardless of their knowledge of fundamental factors.

The situation is similar in weight management. Using your computer to estimate changes in your body composition, consisting of your body fat and lean body mass levels, allows you to adjust your energy balance, consisting of the balance between your calorie intake and calorie expenditures, to get the weight management results you desire, regardless of your knowledge of all the factors that affect your weight. 

There are, of course, a myriad of social, psychological and biological factors that affects a personís weight, ranging from self-esteem to personal food preferences, from the effect of increased labor-saving devices to personal preferences for physical activities. But the effect of all these fundamental factors is reflected in your body composition, just as the effect of fundamental economic and business factors is reflected in the price of a stock share. It is often not necessary to analyze all these factors to make intelligent choices in managing stock shares. The price alone, along with a good trading system, is often sufficient for this purpose because the price is determined by all factors, known and unknown, measurable and immeasurable, rational and irrational! The same principle applies for using your body composition and energy balance to manage your weight.

Everyone has a specific energy balance equation and body composition measurement. If you focus on analyzing these numbers and use a good system to modify them correctly, you are sure to get the weight management results you desire. For example, studies show that people who self-monitor their caloric intake are much more successful at weight management then people who do not employ any type of calorie monitoring. (See Science Backs Calorie Counting). This sort of technical analysis of calories levels the playing field for everyone, allowing people to manage their weight more successfully, regardless of the many social, psychological and biological factors, known, unknown, measurable, immeasurable, rational and irrational, that may have prevented them from succeeding in the past. 

Your computer can help you perform this analysis, provided you have a good weight management system to guide you. The Body Fat Wizard and the Energy Balance Charts in The Body Fat E-Guide will take care of that for you!
