Nutritional Index and Diet Tracking
Here is everything you wanted to know about almost everything.
Sleazy, you might want to sticky this.

Wow that is a great resource, consider it stickied.

Think it make sense to have these here too.

And here's a big list that I had saved while I'm at it:

Some of it's probably better than others.

NIH Office of Dietary Supplements

Tons of info here.

This should be a good place for diet tracking sites, or online diet journals....whatever. If anyone has ones they like list them


And suggested by Ruggz: TheDailyPlate

^^TheDailyPlate may be Fubar.

I looked up a grilled cheese sandwich. 2 Pieces of bread and 2 slices of cheese. (Take a look at the protein in it :arg:) I think user's can edit the values for the database, so who knows what is reliable.

Your grilled cheese sandwiches don't have 163g of protein?

Personally, I'll predominantly use BUT, I like thedietplate for their information on all brand name foods that fitday doesn't have. For example, last night I had a 12oz outback special with veggies on the side. I had no idea what the content was until I saw this thread and checked that site out..

Incidentally, it's 50 grams fat, 90 protein which I'm happy about since there's no carbs lol. Additionally, my chicken info from fitday was really undershot. I use Costco's value pack chicken breasts from Foster Farms.. Those breasts are 50 grams of protein per breast! :D Good to know since tonight I have to ditch a breast.. Grrr!

Yeah, it was for the brand name stuff I was liking it for. I mentioned it on another thread. Fitday can be a little limited.

I got a completely differnt result for grilled cheese sandwhich. Course if you tried to search that at nutritiondata you'd get nada for results. I'm not sure if fitday would give anything either.
