    Ok, I kind of like the layout of SparkPeople better.


    I signed up for that as well and will use it instead of FitDay & The Daily Plate.


    Thanks!

      Strike that. The Daily Plate has WAY more foods in its database.

        Oh this is great timing! I was going to look for something better than FitDay soon. I made a top round roast over the weekend & couldn't find anything close to the correct cut in their database.


        Thanks for all the tips! )

            I have been using www.dailyburn.com for about 2 months now. I have been quite happy with the free version. Database is prettybig and easy to search. It also has a weight tracker and calories, fat, protein, carbs counter for each day. Site is quick and easy to change portion size. My only issue is I think it's based on the east coast and if I enter a food at 11 pm and click "today" it shows up under tomorrow.

              Murat. My friend still sells "Isagenix" products. I love their products, but too spendy for me right now.


              Anyway, here's her website: http://weightlossbycleansing.com/


              Since I no longer distribute their products, she'd be more apt to help you out.


              Just call or fill out the form at the bottom of her site (you can skip the intro flash video) and she'll get in touch with you.


              Just mention the nutrition tracking CD/ software and she'll be able to answer any of your questions. I got mine a long time ago, but it's pretty darn awesome.

                  Thanks a lot Sassa!

                  I will contact her to get information about the soft.

                  Best regards,

                  Murat

                      I just looked at dailyburn, not for me. Try this search for any food database: chicken fat. Try it like that or within quotation marks. The old Boolean search of using quotes seems to be history on most searches, including Google. Anyway, back to dailyburn. Not only does it actually remove the quotation marks, like Fitday, it just pulls up any product with both words in it. In Boolean, that is supposed to require an AND command. Then, to make matters worse, they only list ten items per page. What? The majority of Americans seriously using computers aren't on broadband?


                      Another problem with it and a couple of others I looked at was the lack of reports. Fitday is excellent in that regard.


                      If FD had a decent food database, it would win first prize. What an achilles heel. Yes, SassaFrass, we do the same thing. I have dozens of custom foods that shouldn't be.

                        Jedi, how do you handle French food in DietPower, I must introduce a lot of recipes. Even if the names look like similar sometime, American way of cooking seems quite different, since if I introduce the recipe in my way, I find quite a discrepancy between the original recipe and mine. Also, sometime it is difficult to know what is behind the names...

                        I have suggested them to develop a possibility of sharing recipes between users, like in Big Oven. They were not against it... Otherwise, DietPower is indeed very usable and smart.

                          I realize this is an old topic, but nobody mentioned my favorite: http://caloriecount.about.com/

                            Thanks for posting this! I, too, have become frustrated with Fitday.


                            FWIW, I just checked out both Daily Plate and My Fitness Pal.


                            I didn't like Daily Plate because it was ad-cluttered, a bit confusing to navigate, and (worst of all) I had to click something like 4 times to add a single food!


                            My Fitness Pal did become my pal. I found its format cleaner and really liked the option to "save this meal" for food combos I prepare often. This way, I don't have to enter the individual ingredients every time.

                              Like you, BarbeyGirl, I tried the Daily Plate, signed up, spend about ten minutes with them, that was that. Like you said, it was too much work to add things you use all of the time.

                                Caloriecount.about.com also has an option to "tag" items. I'm not very familiar with the others you all mentioned, but what I like about Calorie Count is that I can also enter all the info for a food that isn't in their database and tag it for future use. For instance, I have one for a whole scoop of the whey that I use, and another tag for a half scoop.
