Awesome! Good find.

I also really like Yum! Brands' (Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut) meal nutrition calculator []. It's great because you can, for instance, take the cheese off of one of your tacos and it will calculate accordingly!

I've been using FitDay [] to track my nutrition for a couple of years now. If only I could get a dump from one of those web sites and import it into my FitDay!

Great. Just freakin Great. Now I'll never be able to eat another one of these:

I guess the upside is that I could down 5 of these and not have to eat for the rest of the week. Think of the time I'll save.

Alway pay very close attention to what constitutes a "serving". It will surprise you.

I'm assuming "Unofficial Pts" are Weight Watcher points, right?

This is a great site to know about. Thanks. There are still a lot of gaps, but it's getting there.

A great program I've discovered in helping Diabetes Type 2 is at a place called Green Mountain at Fox Run. It's in Vermont and runs a diabetes program with it's partner, the Joslin Diabetes Center. It's a healthy weight loss program without dieting and the next one is just coming up November 7th for anyone who interested:
