I'm curious what websites people use for trying to track or analyze how their diets stack up. I'm just kind of curious to see what my statistics would look like if I entered everything I ate. For example, it would be interesting to see how many calories I actually eat in a day, as well as all the other nutritional breakdown.<br><br><br><br>
Does anyone know of websites that actually let you enter a whole recipe, and spit out the nutritional info. for the recipe. Being able to customize info like this seems like it would save time rather than having to enter each individual ingredient every time.<br><br><br><br>
I'll be really curious to hear about what kind of websites others have discovered.<br><br><br><br>

I've used calorie-count.com and fitday.com. I like calorie-count becasue they have a very large selection of foods, and they also give each food a "grade." They both tell you numbers of and percentages of calories, fats and proteins, but I'm not sure about vitamins. Actually I think fitday does, but not calorie-count. I haven't checked either of them out completely, but I think there might be ways to enter and save entire recipes.

Thanks! I checked out both sites, and found a nifty recipe analyzer that is apparently new over at the calorie-count website. Its says its a 'beta' version. Anyway, I think I'll have fun playing with that.<br><br><br><br>

Not that I've seen. FitDay allows you to add your own custom foods, though. I haven't seen any others that have this function.

I'm another calorie-count user! Love the recipe analyzer, especially since I cook all my own food. I used to use fitday, but love this site much more. I also take advantage of the activity log. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

BTW, I tried going to that 2000cal.com website, but the access was blocked from where I work! I've been continuing to use calorie-count.com. I logged my foods for awhile, and discovered that I eat around 1425 calories per day. Now that I have a pretty good idea about how much I eat I'm not bothering with the food logging anymore. Its just something I was curious about. I've been continuing to log in my weight though, as I find that interesting, and I like looking at the graph with the moving average plotted on it.

I use sparkpeople.com and it allows entering custom foods as well. It has quite a few of the meat substitutes already in it, but I have needed to add some.

The one I use is healthylivingonline.com<br><br><br><br>
It allows you to enter in your own foods and even keeps track of nutritional values for you. The food journal (with nutrition count) is a great tool to use, especially if you're not sure whether or not you're getting all the nutrients you need each day.<br><br><br><br>
Check it out!

weightlossresouces lets you add in recipies and store, you have to pay but you can get a 3 day free trial, after that you either pay or your account is unsuable. There's nothing stopping you continually making new accounts but you don't get the benifits you get when you pay - which I don't know what they are - since I continually make new accounts every 3 days. heh, might try out some of these others ones <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Sparkpeople.com is the BEST. soooo much better than fitday. I can't stress it enough. Sparkpeople actually makes it, like, fun... fitday is such a drag compared to it.
