So, I'm dusting off my Fitday account and entering my food intake again. I'm not crazy about Fitday - too much processed food, and it can be hard to find the real food buried in there and figure out how it's been tagged (for example, I never have found an option for grilled steak) - but it's easy to use and accessible from anywhere, and I'm too lazy to home brew a solution. I eat better when I'm journalling my food. [eta: so there's ravioli, cheese filled; ravioli, meat filled; ravioli, cheese and spinach filled; but cheese and meat? Nope. *grump*]

Entering my food for today so far reminds me that I've got to remember that sugar is not a food group.

You will have to let me know how this works for you. I am currently doing the "Write everything down in a notebook" version, which is less exciting.

Oh, Fitday works for me. In fact, it's the only thing that's ever worked, because it means I can keep an eye on calories out and calories in, which is why the notebook thing doesn't work for me. What inevitably happens is that keeping track of everything I'm eating, combined with trying to figure out how to put it into Fitday (milk fluid cow's skim), gets tedious, and I stop.

Have you ever tried http://www.sparkpeople.com/ ?

I enjoy it. The food entry does get kind of tedious, but gorski likes to do that part so it's not so bad... when we get around to it.

I did take a look at it once, but I seem to remember if having the same basic issue as Fitday - that it expected people to be eating out of bags and boxes - so I ended up sticking with FD, since that's where all my data already is.

Wow, Fitday looks pretty cool. I had to look it up. I wonder if you can do it even if you don't have a weight loss goal? Probably, but I have so much else to do...hm.

Just out of curiousity, how do you find their portion sizes bizarre?

I'd love to use your info and poke around CK. :) You're a sweetie, you know.
