Hi, I have had great success using a website called www.fitday.com. in many ways, its a little basic, and not terribly intuitive. However, it has the ability to look up and track the calories that you consume and expend every day; track your weight change, and a modest list of other reports. Since its free, and on-line, I find it useful.

Here is my question for you, my fellow bandsters, for this poll:

Do you use Fitday.com?

What other sites do you use?

Please share them with us, along with the features, benefits, costs, if any, and of course, their web address.

Thanks!! Brad

I track my calories on fitday - everyday for 3 months now. It helps alot, escpecially to hold myself accountable when I eat a hershey kiss or two or three - It all adds up. Right now I am eating about 1500 cal. per day. I would really like to get that down to 1200, but I need to make better food choices!

I started with fitday.com but downloaded their desktop program, called FitdayPC. It's only $20 for fitday.com users, and it's WORTH EVERY PENNY. It does a lot the online version can't do, and makes it much more pleasant to track my intake (read: I do it more often).

The best feature of FitdayPC is that you can enter and save custom foods, either by recipe, nutrition label info, or ingredients. I have custom foods called things like "turkey sandwich lunch." Online you had to enter all the items individually, every time.

It has a lot more functionality in general, lots that I don't even use. I highly recommend it!!

I use sparkpeople.com and highly recommend it. I tried fitday, but dodn't like that I could save my own foods, and it was a bit hard to navigate. Spark people is perfect for me - I have my own personalized food section or I can choose a ready planned menu, track my weight, measurements, exercise, and other life goals. Check it out, after all, it is free!!!!

www.sparkpeople.com

Hope you like it!

This is all very good info, I think I may reconsider my current choice which is the weight watchers point system. Although it is a bit quicker to track, i'm affraid it's not accurate enough.

I paid for fitday but I dont tend to log in. I did it in the beginning, then went without logging for months. I am trying to get back on track, have been writing down all my food and am ready to get it on fitday to see how I have been doing.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
