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 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!

Reasonably well?!
Aaaahhh... I thought it was a system based response to how much I lost compared to how much I need to lose. Thank you!
