Question RE Calorie King data

Postby Sas » Wed Dec 05, 2007 3:40 pm

Hi Everyone,

I have been using Calorie king for the last few weeks to roughly add up my carb/calorie consumpion and I have found that a few things on the site are different to what is on the back of packets. So I have been going off what the packet says.

Well I have a women's weekly book that has all the carb, calorie, fat etc. content in hundreds of foods. I finally bought some kitchen scales last Friday and weighed out all my salad for dinner/lunch last night.

When I calculated my numbers using the the book I have I came up with much smaller numbers than the numbers I got on Calorie King for things like tomotos, cucmber, lettuce etc.

What would you more likely trust the women's weekly book or calorie king? (The women's weekly book is part if the cookbook series that they have)

Have you compared both the values and the Women's Weekly values to any other sources? If it's for things like tomatoes and cucumbers then it should be easy to find the calorie content on another website. Then compare them all and go with majority rules, I guess.

Here's some results for tomatoes at different sites: ... /Food.aspx

I'd be disappointed if CalorieKing was inaccurate. I'm using it to track my calories and exercise right now and I'm loving it. Please let us know what you find!
