I am looking for a program which could help me determine the amount of protein etc I eat per day. I was just curious that I was eating enough of everything. And counting the serving size is a bit complicated.<br><br>
Anyone use such a thing?

You can get a free trial of weightlossresources for 24hours, which is very food for branded products (I'm from the UK but I think they have a US one as well), or you can try fitday which I find a bit more difficult to use but it's free.<br><br>
They're the two I've used, my protein is always through the roof! haha.

I manufacture food calculators, fruit calculators in specific. There are small microchips, screens and keypads inserted into bananas, oranges, watermelons, sometimes even lemons. The only problem is that the fruits rot and then you have to buy a new calculator.

Wow! so I tried the nutridiary and today I ate:<br><br>
-216% of fiber<br>
-734% of vitamin C (!!!)<br>
-276% vitamin A<br>
-118% of iron<br><br>
the only one I didn't reach was calcium as I am at 86%.<br><br>

I like <a href="http://www.Sparkpeople.com" target="_blank">Sparkpeople.com</a> too. And you can change your preferences on the site so it tracks vitamins and nutrients and other things, as well as protein.

Livestrong.com is good (used to be The Daily Plate).
