Making Those Calories Count


Visitors: 365

We all know that we should watch the amount of fatty foods we eat and incorporate some form of exercise in our daily lives every day for better health. You should know that one of the most successful tools in dieting is writing down what you eat as you eat it. Science has proven that people who do this actually lose 50% more than their counterparts who do not tally up their daily caloric and fat intake.

It make sense to keep track of what you're eating so that you can literally start “trimming the fat" out of your diet, and learn to eat good wholesome foods that can satisfy your hunger cues while coming up as big fat zeros in the fat department.

One way to discover what you really consume on a daily basis is to check out calorie and fat calculators for dieting on line. There is a huge amount of calorie and fat calculators for dieting on the internet, and each and every one of them seems to have their own special personality. Here is a tour of some of the most interesting calorie and fat calculators for dieting that we've found on line:

The Calorie King

This website really deserves to be named the King. It has a huge database of all kinds of food, including everything imaginable from the food pyramid, but has a large listing of name brand foods right in there too. Some of the best features of this particular calorie and fat calculator is that you can change the portion sizes right above the item(s) and the amount of calories and fat is figured out for each and every amount you input. Calories are there, alongside fat broken down into three or more categories. This is definitely the best one around.

The Calorie Control Council

This site really looked like it was going to be a lot of fun. The front page sports a bathroom scale in constant motion (if only it never stopped in real life!), and it looks very inviting. But once you click onto the online calculator, there are certain items that cause it to ask you for some personal information and well, some of us are just not ready to give any information on personal pudginess, so it was decided to go elsewhere for the information needed.

Nutrition Data

Now, this is a really fun site, although there is a lot going on in the space. There's a Daily Needs Calculator (who could resist someone who worries about your daily needs?) and even a food widget to download on a blog so you have the calorie and fat calculator for dieting on line right at your fingertips. It really is user friendly, and the response time is great for getting the information while you're running through the daily food intake. This site has a ton of places to make sure you're keeping track of all your calorie and fat facts to help you succeed in your dieting.
