    Good Online Diet Tracker?






    Hey everyone, I was wondering what kind of diet tracker you use online. Something to enter in what I've ate and the nutritional information of this food. Hopefully this makes it easier than writing it down and more organized. Thanks!

    Hi there,
    Here`s another one that might be helpful. It`s the Qwave system. I cannot submit the url but you can find it on qwave dot com (you know how to write it)

    You could also try Biggly's free online system - but to be free you have to be a frequent poster on the forum. Elsewise it's $2 a month, for now. You know, pricey n stuff

    Haha @ Biggly. You develop that software alone or with a team?

    Also, I won a free membership at MyWorkoutLog.net lol, pretty cool.

    A bit of both

    The online version has only recently been completed. Does much of what the download does, though not all and I'm launching version 4.0 of the download very soon, with added goodies.

    The online one gives you the full USDA database of food, plus you can enter your own and save complete meals. Graphs everything, your cals, food groups, vitamins and minerals.

    Does workout tracking, again lots of stuff graphed, weights n reps, strength, calories burnt etc. Also cardio, basically it's the same as the full Windows version but with a few bits missing (such as the daily journal, left and right measurements etc).

    It was supposed to be ready by 1st January but these things never quite work like that! It is fully functional now though.

    My next step is to sync it with the download so download users can update on the go and then merge the online entries. That could take a few more months to tweak and perfect - ok, make that a lot more months...

    Right now you need 1000 Biggly Points to get a free account, which are 'earned' by forum posts (1pt) blog posts (5pts) photos (10pts), polls, surveys, photo of the day, all that kind of thing. It's a very sophisticated system, hence taking so damn long to get it all running smooth. Even works on Firefox (finally)!

    I may reduce that right down to something like 100 pts or something, 1000 is a bit extreme.

    Give it a try, you'll like it

    Anyone from this forum asks nicely, free account. So far it's running OK on a basic server, the fee is to cover a more powerful server but I don't think it's gonna need one.

    Feedback would be very welcome

    With Sparky you tick a box...

    "Did you do weight training?" "Yes".

    I guess if that's your idea of working tracking..?

    hehe I meant workout tracking, not working tracking.. you can tell I'm glad my site is finished!

    I did a cheesy video awhile ago, hang on, here ya go:



    That only shows the free tools really though, like those in my sig'. The actual software is a calendar-based tracking system, so it remembers what you did yesterday, or last year or longer.

    Great as it is (and it is! pimp pimp) you can track the basics and do most of the calculations with pen and paper.

    Personally I don't like online software; I much prefer something I can download. Then again I live in Borneo now, with the world's slowest net connection...

    I have been using FitDay for almost 2 years, and I love everything about it!
    Any decent body detox products out there?

    Has anyone tried Gym Technik?

    Mobile Fitness Tracking | Gym Technik

    It is smartphone compatible so I was thinking of giving it a whirl.

    Pretty much any smart phone can use pretty much any website. You mean it's suitable for WAP?

    I did consider that route with Biggly but more and more phones, even cheapies, are coming with browsers now anyway. My wife's Nokia E71 works with Biggly (or any other website) no problem. That's why they're called smart-phones

    Doesn't look like you can track your nutrition

    Just workouts.

    You could try Gyminee as well. it only has an app for iphone though

    Yes I think it is suitable for WAP. I may install it just to see what it looks like and let you know. I can take it to PM to avoid clutter in the thread if you like.

    Well it's not my thread, tis about all the softwares out there and for everyone. I'm not too bothered about WAP, partly as I never (ever) use it on my own phone, partly as like I said, modern phones use mini browsers that can display a normal website.

    Developing the online version of Biggly took over 10 months and a few thousand dollars hiring peeps for the fiddly bits. I'm not going though all that again for technology that's already semi-obsolete.

    Biggly will always be at heart a Windows desktop program, even the online version is intended to become a convenient add-on. Online software is certainly no replacement for the speed and power of your laptop or home PC.

    Ultimately the greatest use of any kind of tracking, be it pen and paper or software, is motivation. Nothing beats a rising graph to keep you going - and nothing slaps you harder than the equivalent of having to type in "I fucked up this week" and watching your graphs heading off in the wrong directions!

    Piddling about with a cell phone is fine for actual recording. Doesn't compare though to my Friday ritual of stripping, measuring, weighing, inputting then sitting down to scroll through 20 or more graphs, reading my journal entries and comparing to last week's photo.

    Your results may vary...

    If you're talking here you already have a computer I'm guessing? Why not use it?

    How much do you spend on supplements each month?

    fair enough!! That's a good way to put into perspective

    I am just geeking out a bit because I have not owned my BB for more than a week yet. I can see the allure of tracking on a handheld fading as the novelty of having a BB wears off.

    Well my wife was torn between a Blackberry and the E71. I think it was simply service provider issues that made her go for the Nokia. From what I've seen of them the modern Blackberrys are pretty darn cool.

    That specialist "niche" software is available for under $40 sounds pretty fair to me, as the BB has it's own operating system. That drastically reduces the development to sales scale compared to Window CE or XP/Vista.

    If they do free trials give it a go. Just don't leave it lying around in the gym
