Question Online food/fitness diaries?

I'm working on a fitness goal to get my beach body back closer to fighting shape and I want to better quantify the "calories in vs calories out." A big part of the challenge is that I eat out probably 5 - 8 times per week.

I'd like to use something online that has reasonably estimates of common foods (e.g. boneless skinless chicken breast, grilled, 6 oz = X calories, Y grams of protein, Z grams of carbs, etc).

I've looked at a couple and they seemed to either lack foods or exercises and didn't have a simple "custom" entry that allowed you to input your own caloric information. Has anyone used one of these before and been happy with the selection of foods and exercises?

I'm thinking I may just need to build a spreadsheet.

nutritiondata.self.com is useful but i dont know if it logs your diet.

livestrong has a similar setup.

fatsecret.com / Calorie Counter app for Android.

Easiest thing I've ever seen to track your intake and exercise. Helped me lose 40 pounds in 9 weeks.

I just realized...

braineack and I use a shared google doc that lists our weight and circumference and the amount of weight we're lifting for various key exercises. ideally we enter it monday morning but realisitcally we enter it whenever.

i can tell you that scott's weight went down 6 lbs and his deadlift went up 40lbs. my weight is down 4 lbs, same increase in deadlifts. and both of us are down about 2 inches in circumference at the navel.

it's very sexual.

Don't forget to deduct "calories shat". Turds contain calories too!

+1 on fatsecret. The fact that it synchs iphone, ipad, android and web makes it available everywhere is really handy.

Nice; thanks. This looks like a better fit than the others I tried and the ability to sync the account between the desktop and iPhone is a nice feature. Pretty robust exercise and food library, too.
