    Any good Nutrition counters out there?

    Shop Now
    Hello! Sorry if this has already been answered in another thread, I looked and could only find one which was of no help.

    I'm looking for a system where I can enter what I'm eating and it tracks the breakdown of the food/meal, e.g. nutrients, protein etc.

    I've tried FitDay and Livestrong already and neither seem to manage what I need.

    Fitday seems way too limiting in food selections. e.g. I have a smoothie for breakfast. I can search and specify "I eat a fruit smoothie" but it doesn't let me specify what is put in that smoothie unless I already know its nutritional breakdown, which I don't, as that's why I want to use the website! This is before I even go into more detailed paleo meals such as Thai Chicken curry etc

    Livestrong just seemed to count calories which is of no interest to me.

    If you've got any recommendations of what I could try that would be great.

    If you don't know what went into the smoothie you drink, how would some random website be able to guess it for you? Did you make it yourself or did somebody hand it to you?

    You can try MyFitnessPal. Their database seems to have a lot of commercial stuff already entered and you can also enter your own recipes and/or meals.

    Sorry I think you misunderstood what I said... I know my ingredients but I don't know the nutritional value for each ingredient: so I know my 1litre of smoothie contained 500g of greek yoghurt, 3 bananas, 1 punnet of blueberries and 200ml of water.... I have no idea the nutrients of each 250ml serving of this smoothie. That's what I want an app/website/service for, for all the recipes i commonly eat

    I like cronometer: CRON-O-Meter: Track nutrition & count calories

    You can create your own recipes and then when you
    enter your smoothie, you can put in how many
    grams you drank of it (grams = ml) and it will figure
    out the cals for you.

    But first you have to "create new food" with all the ingredients
    -for- your smoothie.

    Lemme know if I'm not making sense.... or if you need any help.

    I like cronometer cuz there's no fluff, just calories, macro breakdown and
    all the vitamins and minerals you could dream of, right there for every food.

    I use Nutricalc Plus from McGraw Hill. There is a like a $20 fee per year but its totally customizable and I put in my own ingredients for my recipes and it can track all my needs as well as for my clients. It is used by a lot of nutrition professionals.

    People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

    If you're not accustomed to measuring your food, you will need to get a diet scale and some measuring cups.

    paleotrack.com.

    But somewhere is a real nutrition tracker for micro as well as macro nutrients. I've been hunting for it unsuccessfully. A month ago someone was recommending it often and I failed to note it.
