I tried the USDA supertracker for a couple of days, to see if it would help me. I was a lot more motivated to eat vegetables, but it was too demanding in that respect. And finding foods I wanted to enter was a hassle. No such thing as a hamburger bun in their database, I had to use white bread. If I didn't already know the calories for most of my favorites, I would have wound up way off base.
What finally ended it for me was the realization that I felt guilty about eating more than one egg a day if I was reporting it to the USDA. And they wanted me to eat so much dairy! I was curious what the feedback would be like. They turn anything you've exceeded the recommendation in red and put a little triangle exclamation point by it. That was kind of annoying but I was getting used to it.
The only way I preferred it over sparkpeople was less up down scrolling, and the nutrition info updated on the fly as you tweaked quantities. But I like how I can set what I want to track in Spark nutrition.
I does any one on this team use a Fitbit? I have one and I love it, but I find it a bit time consuming to track on that site as well as here. I love the data displayed there and fitness tracking is so easy. However, this is my FAVORITE site!! SO much information and support. Any suggestions?
