    So I figured I would share this with anyone interested as it helped me quite a bit...there is a website and app (apple or android) called MyFitnessPal and it is pretty sweet. You basically put in your age, sex, height, weight, daily activity level, and desired goals, and it spits out what you should take in on a daily basis. You can also edit the app/website to track specific things, maybe you aren't trying to lose weight but are worried about something else...for instance high blood pressure runs in my mom's side of the family so I track sodium, a guy at work has high cholesterol so he uses the app to track just that.

    Anyway, it has a huuuge database, literally has the nutrition facts for every food item at every restaurant and in most grocery stores. If you have an iPhone/Android with a camera, you can "scan" the barcode on a food item and it immediately loads in the nutrition facts.

    Anywho, I am starting to buzz and obviously rambling, but figured I would share this as it has made a pretty significant impact on my health, and even it it has a positive impact on just one person this thread was worth it.

    Cheers mates!

    Also it's a legit app, it was #1 on iTunes/Android in the "Health" genre or whatever for 2011, best of all it is 100% free.

    Yeah, all the bitches at work are on that, and they (for the most part) are losing weight. :eek:

    I wouldn't work for me, I would have to cut way back on my beer consumption. :facepalm:

    It's honestly fastest to just use the website, then use the mobile apps when needed. It all syncs, so if you add lunch on your bberry, it will upload to the web, vice versa. I like the actual web layout, most days i just add everything i ate when i get home from work on the web.
