food diary

Im trying to get  my diet in order and thought I might start by keeping a food diary are any of the apps any good.
At the moment im just under 14 stone im looking to drop to 13 stone to start with.so I thought I would start a dairy and use the knowledge from this site to kick start my weight loss

    My fitness pal is the most popular IMO, but I just use the note pad app on my phone usually.

    I currently just use excel.  I'm in the process of writing a diet plan tool for nuutrii.com, but it's not ready yet.
     
    If you have any ideas of specific things that your interested in, then I'd be really interested to hear.  My current plan is to create 'plans' which are not really a diary but daily plans for particular days (so you can create a seperate plan for 'weights day', 'rest day', 'carb recomp' or whatever), then add individual recipes or food items to times, and it will total everything up and show stats for macros and micros.  Plus graphs over time, so you can see your carb, pro, calories, etc, intake through the day and see where it spikes or tapers or drops off, etc.
     
    You can spam me on the FB page (look up nuutrii) with ideas if you think they might be useful.

    Just started tracking my food intake on myfitnesspal.com . It's easy to use and you can set the categories you are interested in, i.e. Protein, Carbs, fat , fibre, sugar etc etc
