Do any members use calorie counters other than the one on FS?

Yesterday I made myself a delicious one-pot dinner with green lentils. The calorie value for lentils seemed very high - I was looking for a half cup of dried lentils, measured before cooking. No brand name, here in Turkey we buy them by the kilo from the market or store.

So I looked around on the Internet and found calorie values for a half cup of dried green lentils ranging from 70 to 350!

Confusing, to say the least - so, any recommended sites?

I have been using this one for years.

http://nutritiondata.self.com

It also allows you to enter the whole recipe or meal and evaluate it. But FS is most probably tapping into the same USDA database for nutrition value of most items. I still use both, as ND provides additional information on food items though is not designed as a daily tracking tool.

I tried a new website almost like FS this morning, just to see which one I liked best for calorie counting. The website I used was www.caloriecount.com I didn't really like there's. But, you might find it a good choice.
No one said it would be easy....But it's sure gonna be worth it!

Sometimes it just takes some time for the weight to shift.For your body to recognise that this is a change and it needs to work with it.How long have you been doing this? Good luck
