Websites for nutrition information

I just discovered www.dietfacts.com today. It list calorie counts from different restaurants. (It also lists points for WW people) I was SHOCKED to learn that a slice of cheese pizza from Costco is 804 calories!!! I know it's huge but I would have guessed closer to 500 or 600. I have definitely eaten 2 slices in one sitting...that was over my total calories for the whole day.

What other websites do you use (besides going directly to the restaurant's site) to help with your nutrition goals?

Wow, that is a huge amount of calories! I know I can usually pack away quite a bit of pizza but I can only do 1 slice at Costco, thank god! I'm almost afriad to see what sort of fat it has.

I use the nutrition information provided here on PEERtrainer (it's linked under "diet & fitness"), or I use a book by Corinne Netzer, "The Complete Book of Food Counts".

I'm not familiar with Costco pizza, I'm guessing it's deep dish since they're nearly twice the calories of thin crust. My favorite hint for eating NY-style pizza: save yourself around 50 cals per slice by not eating the end crust.

HealthClub.com

www.healthclub.com also lists hundreds of restaurants. I think it is an EXCELLENT idea to look things up before you go out - you have no clue sometimes just how fattening some of these restaurant dishes really are!

The original

I think most (all?) calorie-content calculations are ultimately based off the values published by the USDA for raw ingredients (and some prepared food) I suspect this is also the source for peer trainer's calorie counter, but sometimes you can find stuff in one, but not the other. The big advantage of the USDA site is that it will usually give you counts either by wieght or by volume - handy when you're calculating the calories in a homemade recipie

The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working.
