My latest obsession
Everyone in the world should go to LIVESTRONG.COM and sign up for The Daily Plate!
This terrific site helps you set your own calorie and fitness goals, based on your age/gender/weight. Then it gives you the tools you need to track your own diet. You enter not only what you eat each day, but also everything you do. It analyzes how many calories you take in vs. how many you burn, and gives you a breakdown on what you eat.
For example, Quaker was outside of the building this morning, distributing free samples of their Chocolately Drizzle Mini Delight rice cakes. I entered that yummy little bag onto my "plate" and found that the 90 calories, 4 grams of fat, 30 mg. of sodium, 14 grams of carbs, etc., were automatically credited to the day's plate.
It's easy, it's interesting (you burn on average 120 calories/30 minutes by changing your sheets), and really very helpful.
BEST OF ALL, IT'S FREE!
