I just started using this online calorie counter for help in weight loss that Lori @ southernsweetie1978.blogspot.com shared with me - http://www.myfitnesspal.com/
Here's another one I might try - https://tracker.dailyburn.com/v .
Why was so excited to try this? It's not as restrictive as a diet where you have to completely eliminate certain foods (or food groups). You only need to keep your calories under or at your limit. It's so easy to just select what you eat each day! When you have completed the day's entry, you get a message that tells you something like, "If you continue eating this way, in 5 weeks you will lose...X number of pounds"! That's what I like to see!
