I use fitday.com, it’s free and has been working great for me for the last couple years.

Excel, lol. A lot of the foods I eat I already know the portion counts from the box or just general quantity (4 oz of chicken let’s say). Otherwise i google it from a few different places to make sure i have the right value.

I was using the daily plate on livestrong.com and it was very useful…I need to start tracking again..I really fell off!! Not to mention it helps me remember to eat during the day rather than binge at the end.

I use MyDailyPlate.com and I think it really helps me keep things honest.  You can also put in your activity and figure out how much you’re burning, too.

I’ve been using sparkpeople for a week and really like it. I like that it gives you a specific calorie intake for the day to hit your goal. (not sure if all the other sites are like that.) I think it will get easier once i have all my foods “saved” because so far it is getting annoying having to enter in new foods each time i eat, rarely are they already listed. I used fitday before and like this site more.

I use the same program as redherring. I love it because I don’t have to remember to track everything I eat when I get home (I don’t work in an office), I can just pull my phone out and enter!. Plus you can enter recipes and it does the nutrition breakdown for you. It is a little daunting at first because you have to search for every food/exercise in their database. But it saves any food/recipe you enter so it gets easier as time goes along.

I use Myfooddiary.com. It’s $9 a month but I very rarely have to manually input the nutrition info. Also there are really great forums there. They also have a mobile friendly site so you can track via smartphone. I LOVE it and think it’s worth the money to me. I also feel more obligated to use it since I pay.

I use myfitnesspal.com and just use the food tracking, not the exercise tracking.
