Post what you ate today v. http://caloriecount.about.com

http://caloriecount.about.com

Pretty cool little resource. Don't put too much stock in the food suggestions or tips they offer, but this is a very handy way to keep track of exactly what you eat during the day and keep yourself from fudging the numbers. Not everything you eat will be on there but a surprising amount of things that you wouldn't expect to find are. Once you have everything on there you can click "analysis" and get your carb/protein/fat ratio in percentages along with a slightly more detailed breakdown underneath.

Here's mine for today (10/9/2008)

For some background, I am 195lb, 5'11 and my maintenance caloric intake is about 2800 per day. On this particular day my only exercise was my 5x5 routine, which I did for about two hours.





If you're anything like me, you'll be surprised at how many extra calories you were taking in that you conveniently forgot about when you added it up in your head.

you'd be surprised, I thought that at first too. Once you figure out how it works it only takes like 3 seconds to post it on there, and if you eat something several times a day (like whey, milk, eggs, oats, etc.) all you have to do is click one button and it automatically adds another instance of it. It requires no more time than doing a traditional log and is much, much easier IMO. Just thought I'd make mention of it in case anybody was interested.

edit - it's also very handy for all these "critique my diet threads" that pop up as it breaks it down automatically and gives you a clear-cut look at what you're eating and what you're getting out of it

Yeah its pretty cool, but after eating this way for so long I have kind of developed a pretty accurate feel for how many calories I am consuming daily. It said I only got 2,000 today =( However it can be very helpful for people who are unaware of the caloric content of the food they eat

I used www.fitday.com for a little while and that was pretty good. You can also add stuff to it if you know the exact macronutrients and stuff and it'll remember it in a list so you can keep using it, like for example, your whey protein.
