Default Great Free On-Line Weight Loss Tools/Charts

Has anybody seen the fitday site? It has a way you can input all your food for the day and it will keep track of the calories, fat, carbs, protein etc. for you and graph it all out.

It's a little bit wonky, for instance, I tried to input 1 egg and it showed up as a CUP of eggs....grrr! Everything was like that for instance, I couldn't find a slice of cheese, only 1 cup of grated cheese or cheese cubes. I don't know maybe I'm not looking in the right place or something?

But What Ive been doing is putting in the info in the "custom" option. For stuff like the egg I just refer to the book "complete book of food counts" and for stuff with labels, I enter it right off the label. It will save the info for you so for instance if you have a cup of Trader Joe's Chicken soup in the afternoon, and then get another cup later, you just change it from one to two in the journal and it re-adds everything.

Kind of handy especially for the stuff that you eat regularly.

I've used fitday before and I like it, even though it's a little bit anal on the details, even for me! On the page where you enter your food (where the "nutrition label" shows), there should be a drop-down box to select the unit - e.g. cup, grams, "one large", etc. I don't use it every day consistently, but I like using it if I'm working on a recipe and want to figure out what the nutritional makeup of the final product will be.
