Hungry Girl Today: 10.16.09
Wondering how many calories are in that plate of nachos? Or just how many
of those nachos you can eat without gaining weight? How about how many
laps around the track it'd take to burn 'em off? Or maybe you just need a
place to track all the calories and crunches, pounds lost and goals gained?
HG's got the 411...
CalorieKing is BY FAR the most ginormous, accurate, and easy-to-use
website for nutritional info we've seen. You can search the Food Database for
free and find out how many calories, fat grams, carbs, etc., are in pretty
much any food imaginable. Aside from restaurant nutritionals, data on
supermarket items, and fast food breakdowns, the folks at CalKing also give
overall averages on generic items (a tuna sandwich, for example). Plus, you
can easily alter the serving size to match your actual intake, and the site'll
calculate those numbers instantly. This site is a royal lifesaver and we drop
Feel the Burn...
Everything you do burns calories, from cycling in your spinning class to
snoring (hopefully not in your spinning class)! But you may be burning more,
or less, than you think. Fitness Partner will calculate calories burned at your
specific weight for more than 200 activities. The best part is that you can
view 'em all as one giant list and compare the activities. (Other sites make
you enter and view the activities one at a time.) CalorieLab is another cool
site for counting how many calories you burn. Choose from a list of diverse
categories like occupation (masseuses burn more calories than traffic cops),
indoor exercise machines, and self care (blow-drying your hair burns more
than showering). Some of those are a little silly (we're NOT recommending
you try styling your hair for 3 hours in place of a workout!), but it's
interesting stuff for sure.
Knowing how many calories to consume in a day is great, but what about
your other daily needs like fat, carbs, protein, and more? And finding out
your BMI is a good start, but what about what to do to improve it? iVillage's
health calculators will tell you all that and more. Find out your target heart
rate and get advice on the areas of your lifestyle that may need
improvement. Good stuff, people!
SparkPeople is one awesome website, humans. There's so much to do, it's a
little ridiculous (in a completely good way!). Join for free and get busy
tracking exercise and calorie intake, chatting up experts and fellow members
in the community section, browsing through and sharing recipes & tips, plus
lots more. Members (and even those just dropping by) can view fitness
videos and read up on the latest health news. Basically, this site does
everything but scramble your eggs for you and drive you to the gym. Hooray!
