Knowing how many calories you are consuming daily can make the difference between your success or failure in the journey towards weight loss. Keeping a food journal is a great way for you to track what you are eating and help you stay focused. Studies show that people who keep a food journal are more likely to be successful in achieving their weight loss goals. Manually keeping track of every food label can be tedious and as a result not everyone keeps one. Fortunately there are online tools to help you track your calories with ease.
Fitday.com is perhaps one of the most popular and easy to use online food journals. It is free to sign up and only takes a minute or two to register. Once you’re signed in, you can begin inputting the foods and beverages you have consumed that day. What’s even better is that fitday.com already has numerous food products already stored in its database including the calories, fat, protein, and carbohydrates of each item. From common foods such as a piece of wheat bread to even some name brand foods, fitday.com makes keeping a food journal a lot easier. If you cannot find what you are looking for, you can “create a custom food” in which you can input the exact stats, including serving size, of a particular food into a nutrition label. That custom food can be saved so that you can use it again easily in the future.
As if that wasn’t enough, fitday.com offers a wealth of other weight loss tools. Additional features include:
- Weight and goal tracking
- Calories burned
- Progress monitor
- Pie charts to tell you what percentage of your daily foods come from carbs, protein, and fat
- A place to input your body measurements
- Calories planned vs. actual
- Caloric deficits
- And much, much more!
