cron-o-meter is amazing!
« on: December 01, 2010, 02:29:51 pm »
Not going to lie I found out about this program from fruitarians but its absoultely amazing. You basically input what food item you eat and it gives you the calories and all the nutritional information you could ask for. I was looking up organ meats and it even gives the nutritional breakdown for them in there raw state. Pretty cool stuff, the only odd meat i couldn't find was raw beef bone marrow but for some reason it had caribou bone marrow.

Just thought I should let everyone know.
Heres the link, its free-ware.

Just a thought...

This topic seems to come up regularly so maybe this link should be maintained somewhere or this thread kept alive.
Cheers

I wonder why they make you download a program in order to see nutritional info...

Do you know if their program is accurate? Because this site for example http://nutritiondata.self.com seems to have numerous inaccuracies.

For example I was comparing lentils to sprouted lentils:
http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/2472/2
http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/legumes-and-legume-products/4337/2

and a simple thing to point out would be that it lists the sprouted lentils' dietary fiber as 0%
but I've seen many other problems on this site with other foods

I use Fitday's online program. It is easy for me as I am ZC and eat under 10 foods, all nutrient dense. I love the charts, macros, micros. I only don't like that I cannot see omega 3:6 ratio, and there is no iodine or a few other minor nutrients. But it works well.

I haven't checked but have used both and think the inaccuracies may be present in the US nutritional database they're both based on.

For the most part they are accurate. As Josh said they are both based on US nutrition databases which may have not been updated in only god knows how long.

I like using nutritiondata.com for that information.. because they have a lot of the different nutrients listed, including omega 3 and 6.. although they don't have all that many foods, and it's hard to find raw too.. plus, it doesn't have differences between organic/non organic, and other stuff like that.
Hi, I'm 26, around 5'4" and ~124lb, no real significant health problems other than hyperventilating when running/exercising (that my doc said was because of the smog/asthma), fatigue, and really bad acne.
I'd preferably be a carnivore/very low carb, but I have had a very hard time finding grass-fed or even organic fats, organs, and marrow. I consume raw dairy, but I do not eat much vegetables.. however, I do love fruit.Trying WAI.
I live with my dad, so I also have to sneak any raw meat eating.
