    I use livestrong.com. They have a great archive of articles, quizzes, forums, calorie counter, an app to measure how many calories burned when exercising, and these cool little challenges you can take and comment on. Everyone is really supportive and friendly over there, so I highly recommend it!!

    Weight Watchers is great, but it’s not really for counting calories.  You track your daily "points"  on their site, along with your weight.  You can also use their recipe builder to figure out how many points are in a certain meal.  It’s a very useful site, but it’s completely tailored to the program.  I started Weight Watchers a few weeks ago, and am loving their eTools, it’s so helpful.

    I use selfdietclub.com – you have to be a subscriber, but Self only costs $12 a year and its fun to read at the gym.  They have a really good calorie counting tol, and will add up your total calories, as well as carbs and protien, for you.  My favorite feature is that they have a pie chart to tell you your carbs to protien to fat ratio so you know if your diet is balanced.

    I use sparkpeople.com and can’t say enough good things abou it!  It’s 100% free, and they have neat tools that allow me to track the caloires and nutrients I eat during the day.  They also have another tool which tells me how many calories I have burned doing various exercise activities and one that generates strength training routines.  Finally, sparkpeople.com has free online workout videos that I do in the hotel room when I’m traveling for work and a great online community for when my motivation needs a little boost.  🙂

    I’m not currently doing an online calorie-counting thing, but when i started, I used nutritiondata.com. My favorite thing about it was that they have a graph that shows satiety (how full a food makes you) versus healthiness (calculated with criteria that hold true for both weight gain and weight loss – so it would be high if it had low saturated fat/cholestorol/sodium, and high vitamins & minerals).

    I did that for about 3 months one of the first times I dieted seriously, and now I feel like I don’t need to b/c I have a very good sense of the calorie/nutritive content of the foods I eat regularly.

    I like mydailyplate.com. I’ve been using it for a while and really like it.  They have TONS of different foods already in their database, so you can almost always find the information for the food you ate.

    I use an excel spreadsheet but look up some of my calories on calorieking. I find things requiring an internet connection can frustrate me when the connection is slow/MIA. the excel sheet is saved to my desktop and it allows me to track and graph everything (weight, measurements, calories over periods of time, etc).
