Android Calorie Counters
Anyone using one? I just downloaded 'myfitnesspal' and so far I'm fairly impressed.
For those that dont know ,basically this ( and others like it ) is just a little programme for your phone which has exstensive list of foods and all their micro & macro nutrient content. You can find the relevant food you are eating either by using the search function ( much like any online search) or by actually scanning the barcodes if the food is packaged. Once you find the food then you just input the serving size and the programme tots up all the nutritional data and adds it to your daily figures.
So far today it's scanned Goldblend coffee, Morrisons peanut butter, Myprotein True Whey and Nairn's oatcakes. It couldn't find Omega3 eggs or M&S Sliced Ham but it obviously had generic listings for eggs and ham.
If your lazy like me and cant be arsed with normal methods of recording stuff and also eat a lot of packaged food then I reckon this is pretty good. I really just wouldn't bother with traditional methods, this seems like fun so far...but then small things and all that...
The big test will come tonight when I try scanning a can of Stella...

No biggie like, there are a lot worse things for you than using steroids, I mean I probably shouldn't have been smoking crack or getting into bar fights at your age TBH - drab4
