I just saw this and it looks intresting. I see web sites like www.fitday.com which are good but anytime you have to manually enter items people quit doing it over time.

Wow...not bad except you have to pay soooo much for it! I can buy a lot of pens, notebooks and calculators for that much money, I might even have some left over to be able to afford the food I'd be calculating!

That would only save much time for the people who eat all boxed, packaged food.

Wouldn't work for me, not much of my food comes with UPC tags on it, ie. grassfed meats and cauliflower...

It's a neat idea, and someone "will make a million dollars" (to quote Office Space, if I may), I just have to wonder, is the 9/7/3 per macronutrient block mathematics just too difficult for what our schools are teaching these days? It's like brain exercise!

http://www.nutritiondata.com is by far the best I have come across until now. Lots of depth.

Alex-
Great site.

Garrett- I agree about only eating packaged foods. It wouldn't make much sense when you prepare most of your owe foods.

Hey, I feel like a fool, I havn't mentioned it to anyone on crossfit, but i have been using fitday.com for about two months now, the only problem ive noticed though is when you write in what you eat and add up all the calories, the sum of carb+protein+fat calories is always less than the total calories number they calculate for you. Maybe someone could shed light on this matter. I like how it tells you how much fiber you are having though, and if you're like me and don't eat many processed foods, it is a great way to calculate stuff. I've also taken advantage of the reports they make for you and activities done, and of course about every week or so i add on a new "custom food" in the foods place to keep track of peanut butter i use which doesn't match their lists adequately, or yogurt. A downside of this site though is that when you type in "chicken", there are no matches for writing in oz's of plain cooked in a pan wih no oils chicken. I have to measure it in cups, then check with my own scale to measure in ounces. But.... if life were perfect, i'd be bored =) great idea sharing this with all crossfitters though!!
