Daily Calorie Counter
Utilizing a daily calorie counter is just smart if you're trying to lose weight.
You have 2 choices when it comes to adding up your calories:
- Use paper and pen to write down everything you eat and then look up the calories (See FREE food journal log forms)
- Use an electronic diet journal:
Food Diary Software Advantage
Compared to online programs, food diary software has the advantage of no down time/hang time because there's no need to log onto a website and wait for each page to load.
You also never have to worry that your personal data or email address are being sold as they can be with free online food diaries.
Using calorie counting software enables you to keep track of how many calories you're eating without having to meticulously count them yourself.
My Professional Opinion
I have 2 favorite calorie counting software programs:
They both work similarly. All you have to do is input the foods and beverages you consume each day and the software will look up the calories for you (and analyze the nutritional value as well if you're interested...vitamins, minerals, etc).
- FitDay is less expensive but available only in download form.
- Weight-by-Date offers a free trial and also has a mobile format available.
You choose. You can't go wrong with either.
Diet tracking and calorie counting are important tools in dietary self-awareness, and one of the best ways to change your eating habits (and lose weight)!
