I've been using

http://www.mypyramidtracker.gov/default.htm

which, for a free diet tracking website, is really good. You can find most every food you eat, and its easy to add it to your frequent foods list. Entering quantities consumed is simple, as is tracking your exercise.

There are two really handy charts that you can get. 1 shows your calorie outflow/inflow. This helps you know if you're eating/exercising enough to lose weight. The other is a tracker for the food pyramid , to ensure that you get enough of the food groups the usda recommends. Really handy.

If you're thinking of buying an online weight loss program, try this site first. It may be all that you need.

I'll have to check this out. In the past, I've used FitDay. A lot of GRS readers say good things about SparkPeople, and I've signed up ut haven't actually used it. (I'm having a lot of success with my current "non-tracking" wellness plan, so I don't want to change to one where I'm writing things down right now.) Maybe Angie will come along and sing the praises of SparkPeople...

La la la! You rang?

I heard about Sparkpeople.com on GRS in the wake of New Years, during the discussion about keeping resolutions. I signed up, got on the program, and lost 30 lbs since January 3.

It sounds the services are similar to what you recommended, JerichoHill. I tend to think of it as Quicken for calories.

One thing that impresses me about SP is that the algorithm for setting calorie targets is pretty sophisticated and smart. There is also a lot of good motivational and informational stuff, too.

What got me about mypyramid tracker was that, I learned very quickly, that my stomach pains which I thought was some form of IBS was actually...I wasn't eating enough! I failed to account for how much I expended working out at the gym, and I failed to account for the caloric shift in my diet (and I'm a normal bmi=25, I look in shape but with a little fuel tank guy)

I completely was eating to little, and sent my body into starvation mode. UGH! Now I check my energy intake before I go to bed, and if I have to,eat some fruit or cheerios or something to that I stay with a slight negative imbalance (to lose said fuel tank).

:roll: I'm an idiot sometimes.

Is sparkpeople free? Both myself and my fiancee would want something once we get to our stable (goal) weight, which is not that far off

I will. My fiancee and I want something good to use that's free when we get to our goal weight, and we both have 10 lbs to go.

woot
