Managing Weight and Calories


I was never one for counting calories or monitoring food intake, I never really had a weight problem, only a body fat problem.(does that make sense?) As soon as the weather gets colder I noticed I tend to eat more and drink more. Also with the reduction in racing and riding the body fat percentage goes up.

I recently discovered this App for the Android smart phones – Calorie Counter it is called and it makes counting calories easy with its extensive database of foods, nutrient content, calculating your daily caloric needs, monitoring weight and exercise caloric expenditure and then displaying this information not only on your phone but sending it automatically to the Fatsecret.com website for further analysis. After only using this App for one week, it has opened my eyes to how easy it is to eat the wrong foods, or not get the ratio of carbs to fat to protein right. It only takes a few minutes to input the data in the phone which is always close by, so this new method of monitoring food intake is going to be a great learning experience and best of all it is free.


From their website:

The Calorie Counter is the essential Android application for people who want to keep track of their food, exercise and weight and be able to sync and access all their information online at FatSecret.com.
