Daily Plate Website

I have seen the Daily Plate Website mentioned on the message board on several occassions, I finally looked it up. I think it is the next best thing to the Medi Weightloss Clinic program, well third thing, this message board is second, , it makes keeping track much easier. And if you are truthful with every thing you put in your mouth it shows us how many real calories or carbs we have put in our system. It can be a real eye opener. I was eating ok foods and losing but eating more calories/carbs then I probably should be. I'm using this as my tracker now and love it. I really think it it going to help, especially with the calculating. Everyone should check it out.
Oh, Calorie Counter, Diet Tracking, Food Journal, Nutrition Facts at The Daily Plate

I just finished my journal that I got when I signed up. I didn't know you were charged for the next one, good to know. Weight loss is so hard and then trying to figure out the points, calories, carbs, etc. just makes me frustrated. I think that is why I failed at WW, too many choices and then having to figure everything out, too confusing. This daily plate takes out all the figuring especially if you use it before making meals or going out. So glad I looked it up.

I asked for a new journal and my clinic did not charge me, I would have said no thanks...I'll just chart on paper myself. I mean with the weekly charge you would think that would be included to keep compliance and accountability. I like the ease of having them figure out the numbers, thanks for sharing this website!

This is for the new medi people. I'm bringing this up to the front again, I think this sight is why I had success, it made things so much easier. If you haven't already, check it out. Takes a lot of the guess work out of journaling. Good luck everyone.

I have been really struggling with my journal and really just forgetting about it! I know that is so important too! I signed up for this yesterday and WOW...it is a great site! I made it my "home page" on all my computers at work and home so I see it as a reminder all the time! Thanks for "bumping" this post! Everyone should check this site out!

Hello all! I started using the Livestrong app on my iphone and I'm really liking it! I also have looked at the Daily Plate website and I was trying to find if there is a way to add a food that they don't have or add a recipe to be calculated. I couldn't find one, but I could just be missing it. For those of you who have been using this website for a while, do you know of a way? And if you do, could you please tell me how? Thank you!

Hey there! I'm ADDICTED to this website right now. I don't know how it works on your Iphone, but online if you search for something that it can't find, there is a small link that says "Can't find it in our database? Add your own!" or something like that! Good luck! I haven't dl'd it to my BB yet, but I plan on it!

Tracking your food intake is so critical. Even for those of us on this for a long time. We all still need to track our daily intake every single day and every single bite!

Is anyone a "Gold" member on the site? Just wondered if it was worthwhile or what the main differences are...

Here are some other options for you all. They are FREE.
One-Click Wonder...

*********** is one awesome website, humans. There's so much to do, it's a little ridiculous (in a completely good way!). Join for free and get busy tracking exercise and calorie intake, chatting up experts and fellow members in the community section, browsing through and sharing recipes & tips, plus lots more. Members (and even those just dropping by) can view fitness videos and read up on the latest health news. Basically, this site does everything but scramble your eggs for you and drive you to the gym. Hooray!


Calorie-Counter Alert!

CalorieKing is BY FAR the most ginormous, accurate, and easy-to-use website for nutritional info we've seen. You can search the Food Database for free and find out how many calories, fat grams, carbs, etc., are in pretty much any food imaginable. Aside from restaurant nutritionals, data on supermarket items, and fast food breakdowns, the folks at CalKing also give overall averages on generic items (a tuna sandwich, for example). Plus, you can easily alter the serving size to match your actual intake, and the site'll calculate those numbers instantly. This site is a royal lifesaver and we drop in daily!

Feel the Burn...

Everything you do burns calories, from cycling in your spinning class to snoring (hopefully not in your spinning class)! But you may be burning more, or less, than you think. Fitness Partner will calculate calories burned at your specific weight for more than 200 activities. The best part is that you can view 'em all as one giant list and compare the activities. (Other sites make you enter and view the activities one at a time.) CalorieLab is another cool site for counting how many calories you burn. Choose from a list of diverse categories like occupation (masseuses burn more calories than traffic cops), indoor exercise machines, and self care (blow-drying your hair burns more than showering). Some of those are a little silly (we're NOT recommending you try styling your hair for 3 hours in place of a workout!), but it's interesting stuff for sure.


Here is the hungry girl website for more details.

The Gold Membership throws in a few more items, and I'm still figuring out exactly what. It allows me to track my weight goals and keep a progress chart. For example, if I enter that I weigh x amount and I want to lose x amount, it calculates how much time it will take me to do that at 2 pounds per week.

Additionally, it offers a "custom nutrition label" which allows me to look at where my calories in a day are going. I can choose from a drop down menu of total calories, protein, carbs, fat, calcium, sodium, fiber, etc. Once I've made a selection, it pie graphs the totals for me. It's really the same information you're getting in your totals for the day, just more specific to each food you consumed.

The thing I like most is it offers a week at a glance view of my food and allows me to drag and drop items that I've consumed on any given day to another day.

Oh, and Gold members don't get all the advertisements.

I believe it was $45 for an annual subscription.

That's a lot of $$$ for what *********** offers for free. So you have the adverts, so what? Ignore them. For free, I can take a lot of adverts. Spend the $$$ if you like, but I personally do just fine with my spiral notebook and a word document.

I'm bumping this up again, the daily plate site is very very helpful for everyone that is journaling their food intake (which we all should be doing whether we are in acute or wellness stage). Good luck everyone and keep up the good work. This program works IF you stick with it and make healthy choices. It also works for those that have made it to the wellness phase. Someone was asking in an earlier thread who has been successful long-term, I have been in wellness since August and feel great. I bounce up and down 3-4 lbs. but have no problem getting back to my goal weight. Down 30 lbs since Aug. and going strong and way more healthy now. Keep it up everyone!

How do you get the calories for the day total to what Medi requires? It keeps kicking me out saying it is not enough and will not take it.

Thanks, SCgirl
