Myfitnesspal or spark people have huge databases. They have apps too.

myfitnesspal.com or the app. You can also enter your own recipes if you need to break the calories down even further.

Another vote for myfitnesspal I have it on my phone and kindle as apps but you can access on Pc as well. My favorite feature - after you finish a daily entry they post 'if you ate like this every day you'd weigh ###.# in 5 weeks"

I love that motivator. If you join friend me (and anyone else too) I love to see other peoples inspirational success on the timeline. My mfp name is intrinsicat

Good luck!

myfitness pal user as well. I like that you can track calories burned through exercise in addition to tracking calorie intake.

I use myfitnesspal as well. I love it. I could use some more friends to keep me motivated. Please feel free to add me. I use the same user name in both places.

I didn't care for My Fitness Pal although I know a lot of people who love them.

I currently use Lose It, mostly the app on my iphone but they have a full site as well.

I also really like Map My Fitness and Sparkpeople. I think Sparkpeople was the most user friendly and had lots of fun community boards, groups, challenges etc.

Maybe I should try MFP again. I only tried the app but preferred Lose It.

I vouch for Lose It. The interface is smooth, the database of food is large & easily updated, and the exercises calorie counts seem to be very accurate.
