calorie counters
 
Good Morning
I am starting this way of eating today - forgot this morning as was going to do DD and had too much HWC in my coffee so will have UD today.
Does anyone have a good and easy calorie counter site on line they use - I have been low carbing so long forgot how to count calories.
Thanks for your help

I use myplate but I know a lot of ppl like ******. I have alot of my recipes plugged into myplate so it would be too much work to switch over now.

I have an excel spreadsheet that has a table to calculate my calories. I prefer this bc I often get the calories right from the nutritional menu on my food...and sometimes I can't find the same counts bc I'm using different brands. It's a lot of work to set up, but once you do, everything you eat is in there.

Enjoy your UD :)

Hi, Island Girl! Welcome! It's fun to have another member of our fast-growing group, and I know you'll be losing weight quickly and really enjoying your meals too!

I use the ****** site to track my food choices and it figures the calories for me. Easy Peasy. BUT, I think there are even better sites out there these days, and the only reason I don't switch is because I already have all my records and recipes and food choices plugged into ****** now.

Once the initial calorie figuring is done, it's a lot easier and faster to go from there, so once you have started entering all your choices into some site (your choice) you'll be off to a great start.

Good luck. Although you really don't need much luck on JUDDD. If you follow it, it pretty much takes care of everything else for you!

:welcome:

I use my fitness pal. You can log online as well as use the app if you have a smart phone.

I hear a lot of people recommending that site, Kelly.

I know if I didn't already have all my history in ******, I'd probably switch.

My Fitness Pal is great! I use the app on my phone and I :love:love:love: it! Since I always have my phone on me, it's easy to enter foods and adjust what I'm eating in real time. Honestly, I don't know how I would manage if I had to sit down at my computer to log things in. I never have time to get on my computer at home anymore. :stars:

I use ****** but just because that's what I used over the years, so my info is in there and I'm too lazy to get a new counter.
