    Health and Nutrition websites

    "NutritionData (ND) provides nutrition facts, Calorie counts, and nutrient data for all foods and recipes."
    http://www.nutritiondata.com/
    It's got links to the nutritional information from a bunch of fast food places, as well as a database of nutritional information for a lot of individual foods. It also has a number of interesting articles on nutrition and related topics.


    This one http://www.healthstatus.com/calculators.html has a whole bunch of different health calculators including:
    - Blood Alcohol
    - Body Fat
    - Body Mass
    - Calories Burned
    - Daily Energy
    - Frame Size
    - Ideal Weight
    - Lean Body Mass
    - Lose One Pound
    - Ovulation
    - Pregnancy Due Date
    - Smoking Costs
    - Target Heart Rate
    - Waist to Hip Ratio



    Have you got any health and nutrition sites bookmarked, or ones you refer to frequently?

    Yes, koffee, at fitday.com (and similar sites) you can log in everything you eat for a week or two. Their software will add and average all your nutrients per day, so you get a good idea where your actual diet is weak and strong. For example, I discovered that I wasn't getting quite enough calcium and magnesium in my diet, so I added 8 oz. of lowfat milk and one serving of leafy greens a day. It's a hassle (maybe 30 minutes/day, less when you get the hang of it) but quite useful. You can also figure out how many calories you are burning through exercize each day.
