Artificial intelligence based program to help chart out a weight reduction program based on exercise and diet information.

Full Description of File


Are you horizontally challenged? PATTERNS
software works with ANY diet/exercise
program to reveal patterns of change within
your WEIGHT HISTORY. PATTERNS uses the
powerful ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE technique
of PATTERN RECOGNITION to provide you with
insight and knowledge concerning YOUR
personal weight patterns. A PROJECTION OF
PATTERN is calculated by the program to
predict your FUTURE WEIGHT, based on the
BEST PATTERN MATCH found. This valuable
information can provide an early-warning
when your weight may be about to rise
without you realizing that it is about to
happen.

Copy all files to your hard drive into a directory called PATTERNS.
Type PATTERNS to begin program. Press any key to continue after
viewing opening screen. Choose the "I" menu selection (Info) before
attempting to use the program. This provides on-screen documentaion for
program operation and concept. PLEASE READ THE DOCUMENTATION.

The example files provided, can be loaded for viewing within the PATTERNS
program. We encourage you to use these for reference only and NOT make
changes to them.

EXAMPLE1.PAT is an example where Mary, is steadily losing weight at a slow
pace with an INCREMENTAL pattern. Her projected weight loss is in-line with
recent loss, and is at a safe rate of less than 1-1/2 lbs. per week. When
Mary reaches her goal of 120 lbs., she is likely to be successful at
maintaining goal weight. She can also depend on the PATTERNS program to
inform her of when weight increases are likely to occur, so that she can take
appropriate action before it gets out of hand!

EXAMPLE2.PAT contains John's weight information. John, unlike Mary, is not
doing so well. First he has decided to update his weight every three days
instead of the once-a-week recommended by PATTERNS. John's weight fluctuates
3-4 lbs. above goal with no clear trend. At least, according to the PATTERNS
program, his next three weigh-ins are going to be in the downward direction.
John should take a chance during this downward trend to SERIOUSLY work towards
his goal of 185 lbs. In other words, he should use this likely pattern of
weight loss to ACTIVELY do things to enhance this pattern. If John had been
making progress in managing his weight, he could use a downward pattern to
justify an ice cream cone or to skip an excercise session.

EXAMPLE3.PAT shows Rachel's average weight change which is less than 1-1/2 lbs.
So far, so good. Like John in EXAMPLE2.PAT, she is hovering above her goal
weight, but Rachel is exhibiting a CYCLE pattern. Two or more CYCLE Patterns,
back-to-back, almost always indicate a "YO-YO" problem with weight. You should
examine your diet and excercise regimen and see what may be contributing to
your weight fluctuation. An occasional CYCLE pattern happens and is not cause
for alarm. Rachel should ACTIVELY work towards developing an INCREMENTAL or
RATIO pattern, with a downward trend in weight. It's surprisingly easy to do
this when you have PATTERNS showing you what is likely to happen if you DON'T
make modifications!

Once you reach your Goal Weight Target (plus or minus 2 lbs. within goal),
you will generate all three types of patterns with a trend that is basically
flat. Do NOT be concerned with CYCLE patterns when you are at goal weight,
you will see them, along with INCREMENTAL and RATIO patterns. If you start
to move away from goal, PATTERNS will detect this movement, and begin making
new projections of pattern accordingly.

GOOD LUCK!
