Nutrition Tracking Recommendations

  1. Nutrition Tracking Recommendations


    So I am looking at different programs for nutrition tracking, and none of them seem very intensive on the food database. I want a local program to the computer instead of using a website for tracking. Anyone have any recommendations on what they use?

  2. try fitday.com pretty easy to use and they have a decent nutrition db

  3. I use sparkpeople.com. Good database and you can add things if it doesn't have it.

    It's online though. Not downloadable. I've never seen anything like that.

  4. I haven't seen anything not based online. I like livestrong(dot)com's daily plate though.

  5. There's a ton of printable charts in various formats from a variety of websites. I've always just done that. Paper and pen. Simple, permanent and tangible. It helps me to actualize my goals. Doing it on the computer, it seems to feel detached and less "real".

  6. Yeah... i have rolled with fitday for awhile. I seen they have Fitday PC... a downloadable program, but they want $30 for it, and not keen on dishing out cash that I dont know if I will like.

  7. nutritiondata.com is amazing. The database isnt the best but you can add custom entries which I know can be a pain, but in my opinion its worth it. It provides very useful charts and graphs and analyzes your diet better than most online tracking sites Ive tried in the past.

    It even analyzes your protein intake by aa and provides a link that will suggest foods to make your protein intake more complete.

    Infact, I think it does this for all vitamins and macronutrients.

    I used to use a program called FoodWise, its a CD-rom and you load the program on your computer- you dont have to be online. The database is pretty good too.

  11. Anyone with an Iphone try LoseIt. It is a FREE app. breaks what you eat in to fats, carbs, protein, tracks progress via graph and daily/weekly/monthly logs ect. I love it.

    Before I would only track protein, but I was usually semi-bulking.
