Keeping an online food diary is a quick easy way to shed light on your food habits and to keep track of how many calories you're eating without having to meticulously count them yourself.
I lost 5 pounds the first week I used this online diet journal!
Oh..and did I mention you'll lose weight?
Studies show that people who keep a food log lose twice as much as those who don't!
My professional opinion
Fitday is the best free online food diary.
I highly recommend this online diet journal to track the foods and beverages you consume each day.
FitDay will look up the calories for you and analyze the nutritional value as well (vitamins, minerals, etc).
Easy to Use
The interface is user friendly, well organized, and easy to navigate.
Add foods to your daily diet log by scrolling through a list or searching for a particular food by name.
You can also see detailed nutrition information for any particular food (calories, carbs, protein, fat, sugar, fiber, sodium, etc.) by simply clicking on the name of the food.
The database of foods is extensive and includes many name brand products. Can't find your favorite foods? You can add them to the database!
Much more than "just" a free online food diary
I LOVE the reports FitDay generates!
You'll get graphs, bar graphs, pie charts, logs, etc. that summarize your data over time. For example:
Having an ongoing picture of your dietary balance throughout the day and visuals of your progress over time is priceless. (But it's all FREE anyway!)
