I like to use a site called www.thedailyplate.com
for a food diary. It is very accurate and it gives a total of calories, protein, fiber, cholesterol, sodium and carbohydrates for the day! I've been using it to journal, before fatsecret got the diet calander up and running and it's pretty easy to use, once you get used to it, like most sites. I have been watching everything from calories to carbs (I've been trying to keep my blood sugar under control due to insulin intolerances), and it's been a life saver! I've gotten my bp down and my sugars are becoming very controlled. I have done Atkins in the past and yes, the high fat and cholesterol allowed is not alright with my doctors, not one of them. However, all of them have been for the South Beach diet and encourage it very much.
You have to be so very careful when it comes to your health and things like high cholesterol, sugar, blood pressure, etc. I wish you well, and with your determination, it IS SOOOOO POSSIBLE!! You CAN do IT!! Good luck!!
