http://www.nutritiondata.com/

Found this website while trying to figure out what I'm eating... it's actually pretty cool in that you can make a recipe and it'll tell you exactly what the breakdown is.

http://www.nutritiondata.com/ (WPS)

Besides the basic calories / carbs / prot / fat data, it gives you all sorts of vitamin breakdowns too. It's pretty neat - probably not super accurate because of the limited 'ingredients' but it's cool none-the-less.

I'm also putting together a spreadsheet that you can enter the P / C / F content and it'll tell you how many calories of each you have the entire day / and gives a quick determination whether it's zone balanced.

Depending on how it turns out, I may post it here.

Fitday or Calorie King, much better programs.

Re: http://www.nutritiondata.com/

I saw this posted elsewhere yesterday. It does have a cool little zone graph but is way more tedious to use then fitday.

Re: http://www.nutritiondata.com/

By the way, in case anyone cares, all these sites use the same underlying data. They just build different fancy stuff on top of it. If you want to get the database yourself for your own purposes (to just have it on your computer, or to build your own application around it), you can download it in several formats from the USDA website. w/fs: http://www.ars.usda.gov/Services/docs.htm?docid=8964

That's what I was wondering since they all have the same database.
