Back to Basics

Trying to get back on my grind (this exam season has led me to bad eating habits - hello late nights!), I found two more amazing sites.

Calorie Count (Free obviously!), is a similar to the daily plate, however, it is a bit more advanced. It will give you a healthy goal weight - based on your activity level and BMI, as well as give you a date reasonable for your goal. It won't let you try to lose more than 2 pounds a week, because hey! - that ain't healthy. The site also lets you log in your activity and food for the day, and charts your progress, as well as gives you a breakdown of what nutrition you got that day (ie: what percentage of your day was based on fat, etc.)

Another great site I found this week was World's Healthiest Foods.
Starting a diet and don't know what to eat? Have an idea of what you think is healthy but aren't sure? Check this out as well! It will help give a basis of foods you should be including in your daily intake! (But remember, everything in moderation!)

Happy Holidays, and Happy Eating! xo

How is Weight Watchers Online still making money?

Attached to livestrong.com, they have a free food diary called the daily plate. You enter your height, weight, and activity level, in addition to your weekly goals, and it generates the calories you need per day.

There is also a database of food items so you can type "sushi spicy tuna roll" and it will tell you the amount of calories and fat and everything and log it in for you, telling you the remaining calories per day.

Check out this site now, you won't regret it!
