Good advice. I occasionally use My Fitness Pal. It really helps me in losing weight because:

1. Ignorance is not bliss ... the caloric content of some foods is shockingly high.
2. I'm lazy. There are times that entering the calories of a snack is such a PITA, I forego eating it altogether.

Wait a minute ... you live in Tasmania?
