      It does make it so much easier. That’s why counting calories worked for me. So simple!

    I’ve been looking for software that tracks vitamins and minerals more thoroughly for a couple of months now. I have a subscription to CalorieKing.com but they only track a couple of them and the customer service isn’t very responsive to suggestions. I am going to have to check this out!

      That is so great to hear, Sarah. I like to see the breakdown of the nutrients too. Especially because I am often deficient in a lot of stuff (vitamin D, B, iron, etc).

    I am going to check this out. The main thing I am confused with is that it’s measuring things for me in kcal not calories; I need to check the settings!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Hmmm. Good question! I didn’t know the answer so I googled it. 🙂 This is what I found:
      “it is a science term, a kcal is equal to a common terminology calorie, but in science a kcal is really a 1000 smaller units of calorie, it is confusing, but even scientists use the term calorie to mean kcal” (http://www.elitefitness.com/forum/diet-bodybuilding/what-kcal-24622.html)

      So……..I guess it’s essentially the same thing…

    What an awesome tool. I’d love to use it for weight maintenance! Thanks for sharing Lisa.

    I’m really happy you published this. I would never have known about it otherwise. I’ve been using it for about 5 days now and really like it. In addition to being a good weight management tool, it’s excellent for figuring out where nutrition needs to improve. Within a few days, I found out that I’m not getting anywhere near the potassium or vitamin D I need each day. Now that I know, I can fix it. Yay!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I am so happy to hear that Katie! I think it’s definitely beneficial for that purpose. I was sorely over my needs for carbs and low in other nutrients. Time to figure out how to eat a little bit better.

      Keep me posted on how it works for you. 🙂

    Hey Lisa–do you use the iPhone app too? I was just wondering if it was worth it. Thanks! I am excited to start really trying this!

      I haven’t had a chance to check out the app yet. But I am all about Apps! I love having the access everywhere I go, 24/7.
