Calorie Counting: the new pain in my *%ss

I've messed around with several calorie tracking sites, but I have finally found my favorite at  I like it because it is minimal work for me because their food search has everything!  I even typed in "Biggest Loser Sweet and Sour Chicken Stir-fry" and Taaa Daaa!  There is was!  No need to put in ingredients! 

So I'm charting and sharing it.  I would like to figure out how to really share it with a link but I have not yet sussed that out, so I'll have to give you the lowdown here for the moment.


Kellogg's Special K Protein Plus Cereal   100 calories and 10 grams of protein
1% milk  111 calories and 9 grams of protein
Banana 121 calories and 1 gram of protein
Coffee Mate Creamer 35 calories                                                 
Crum Creek Soy Bites 105 calories and 6 grams of protein
Tomato 6 slices 24 calories and 2g protein
Wheat bread 120 calories and 5g protein
Kraft Lite Mayo (2 servings) 100 calories                                             
BL S&S chicken stir fry 112 calories and 14g protein
Wasa Whole Wheat Crispbread 100 calories and 4g protein
Digestive biscuits with chocolate 285 calories and 15g protein
(don't ask)

My exercise has me burning approx 392 calories, so that nets me for the day at 823 calories and 66 grams of protein.

My protein is low for sure today and my calories should maybe be a little higher but dinner didn't go down well so I didn't even have a whole portion.  As I have discovered the Wasa Crispbread again, I am going to cut out my whole wheat bread and save those calories.  The digestives chocolate covered biscuits, we won't even discuss.

Now, if anyone knows how to share off this site, please tell me and save my fingers from typing all this!

Edited to clean up the mess!  Godaddy apparently doesn't like columns!  Sheesh!


  1. Nope, I haven't figured out how to share off Livestrong yet--it IS a pain! I'll see if I can start journaling again today as well.

  2. This is off topic...but I loved seeing the phrase, "sussed out"

    I don't know of anyone else who says this, I am guessing Chris' influence? I say it, but then I picked it up way back when, when I lived in the UK...I have been back here 12 years now but "sussed out" brought me back every bit as much as milk in my, Kimmie...Oh, and I, Jil Suzanne Staples do solemnly swear that I will post before the week is over (and by week, I mean I have given myself until Sunday night at
