    Nutritional Tracker?

    I noticed that several people mentioned entering their food into an online nutritional tracker to find out calories and carbs. What is a good/easy one to use? For P3, what do I need to track? I know calories should be around 1500 to 2000 but what about carbs/sugars/proteins? Thanks

    I use livestrong.com I try to watch the carbs, mostly... I'm not sure what else to watch for to be honest, since we can have lots of fats and protein, provided they don't cause gains.

    Good luck!

    I use weightwatchers.com. I like it becuase it has set targets (2 fruits, 3 veggies, 8 glasses of water, etc...) that you should hit each day. When I hit the targets and stay in either no carb or low carb mode, depending on phase, all is good with my weight. It is not free - $15.00 a month, but keeping off the lbs I've lost is worth the cost to me
    Round 1 - 23 Days = Loss of 23.6 lbs

    Round 2 - 22 Days = Loss of 16 lbs

    I also use the livestrong.com app. I like it because it figures your calories, protiens, fats etc out for you. You can also track your weight and measurements there too. when you have a gain you can look back and see what you did diffrently and correct right away
    RD1 start weight 173 LID 139 Net loss 34 lbs
    R2P2 Net loss 20lbs
    R3 Net loss 19 lbs
    R4 Net loss 16 lbs
    R5 18lbs and counting day 25

    I use my fitness pal it is Free and you can track and customize your calories and fats and protein
    I am not sure if it is correct or not but I think I have mine set right now for P3 at 40% Protein 40% fat and 20% Carbs at 1800 Calories
    If I am wrong on that I will check back tomorrow and tell you what I have mine set at...
    I like my fitness pal cause it has in its data base most of the brand names on the grocery store shelf
    Is so much easier to have the brand name of the product you have eaten show up on your food datta base
    Good luck

    There's one that's something like a $25 fee per year (and there may be coupons around) called CalorieKing.com ... it is the ONLY one I've found that has many actual brand and actual restaurant nutrition counts and an easy-to-use diary. Their breadth of foods in the database is so worth it.
