Food Diary - Day 5

I woke up and got so involved in "reading" my latest results from the lab that I didn't have anything to eat until well past ten.

A friend from school saw my blog and suggested opening a account at figwee.com, a free service that tracks the food you eat and the calories you burn. I like it!

Some cool features:

scalability - Whether it's portion size or exercise time, you can choose the amount that best describes your day's activities. I especially like the visual portion selection. It's a little over the top, but this video demonstrates the feature nicely.



tracking -- You can go back and see what you ate. You can examine a graph showing how well you've been meeting your dieting goals. I've only just started, but I appreciate the variety of graphs available to track calories.



Here's my food log for today (imported from figwee.com):
