* Package name    : nutsqlite
  Version         :
  Upstream Author : Jim Jozwiak
* URL             : http://nut.sourceforge.net/
* License         : GPL-2

  Description     : Dietary nutrition analysis software

Features of NUT include:

 * The complete USDA database, your personal data, and the program code all stored in a portable SQLite database
 * Foods easy to find and add to daily meals
 * Configurable for 1-19 meals per day and any dietary plan--including ketogenic, low carb, zone, low fat
 * Comprehensive meal analysis for any number of consecutive meals
 * Presents both easy-to-read percentage summaries and in-depth nutrient analysis, including Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids
 * Foods can be weighed in grams or ounces
 * Includes novel meal planning feature: you choose the food, NUT adjusts the quantities to your plan
 * Calorie Auto-Set feature uses linear regression on daily scale measurements of weight and body fat percentage to find optimal calorie level for improved body composition
 * Allows recording of recipes and customary meals for fast data entry
 * Sorts foods richest in each of the 150 nutrients
 * Reveals which foods contribute most to user's nutrition


This software will be packaged within the Debian Med team.

This software depends on the USDA food composition database which is in the
public domain.


This database will likely be packaged seperately, I need to check if other
packages already use this database in one way or another. It would also be cool
if compatible databases were available from other countries.

Debian Med is in CC, please follow up on this bug if you have opinions on the
packaging of the USDA food database.
