I signed up for FitBit because I bought an Aria scale, but the selection they have is CRAP. The drop down list mostly consists of pre made things and they lack individual selection.
What calorie-counting site do you use?

I use my fitness pal. I find it the easiest, most accessible and the most helpful.

+1 on using MyFitnessPal. It’s easy to use and I can link my phone/watch with it to track steps, calories burned, etc.

Fatsecret works for me since I count macros (grams of protein, fat and carbs) and not only calories.
I would have to pay on my fitnes pal in order to do that

Myfitnesspal. If you buy the fitbit wrist band it will also sync your actual burn and makes your calories more accurate!

I like SparkPeople, but most of my friends swear by My Fitness Pal. Sparkpeople counts my calories, fat, carbs, protein, fiber, and most nutrients.
If you have a Fitbit, you can sync it to both of those programs.

I agree with PPs MyFitnessPal is awesome! It’s compatable with FitBit 🙂

I just read the calorie labels and try to avoid anything that’s not labeled if I’m on a diet, or make healthy choices if I’m going out to dinner and can’t pick something with a label. I don’t like MFP or other calorie-counting sites because any user can enter calorie information and it’s hard to tell what is accurate and what isn’t – for example, you can have one person who says that an 8-oz. cheeseburger with the works is 100 calories, which is false, and another person who says the same thing is 3000 calories, which is also false. Of course those numbers are exaggerated, but I’m sure you understand what I mean. Even discrepancies of a few hundred calories can add up over time.

oands: You can track macros kind of informally on MFP, by scrolling through the nutrition tabs on the diary. And I generally have a good sense of what foods are sabotaging my carb limits haha.

hokie2wildcat: yeah, a friend does this by percentage but I’ll rather have the grams. My daily target is 145 protein, 60 fat and 95 carbs

MFP. It’s easy, fast and accurate. I am kind of addicted to it.

oands: MFP does tell you how many grams 🙂
