NUT Nutrition Software open-source free nutrition software, NUT, which records what you eat and analyzes your meals for nutrient levels in terms of the "Daily Value" or DV which is the standard for food labeling in the US. The program uses the free food composition database from the USDA. This free nutritional analysis software was written for Unix systems (I use Linux), but can be compiled on just about any system with a C compiler. (To get a free C compiler, Windows people might look at Cygwin or MinGW, and Mac people might look at xcode.) By experimenting with NUT, you can find the optimal level of the various nutrients and how to implement this with foods available to you. NUT can help reconstruct the lost instruction manual to your care and feeding because, when the authorities and crackpots disagree on the proper human diet, you can design an experiment using the food composition tables to discover the truth!

ATTN Ubuntu users: the console version of NUT runs when invoked in a terminal, so if you installed the Ubuntu/Debian version, then open up an xterm or other terminal and type "nut-nutrition". If their version doesn't work for you, take the latest version from here and compile NUT yourself--it's not hard to do. Just read the README, and if you don't get it, send me an email telling me what you don't understand and I'll help you with it.
