My tool for weightloss, maybe you can use it too?

Postby yocal » Wed Dec 17, 2008 7:19 pm

Hi there,

I started my weightloss back in october because i wanted to prove to myself that i could loose weight eventhough it was christmas and all that. And till now, things has gone better than i planned. 10th of october i was at 92,6 kg., and today i hit 76,7 kg..

I want to show you a thing i made for counting calories. You see, i was tired of all these excel spreadsheets there is outthere, and i couldnt find a website that was fast and could easily help me figure out how much a meal was just by putting in a few numbers. Thats why i made this little utility website:

Removed - blatant advertising

I got all the data from a danish database delivered by the danish ministry of food (im not quite sure thats the correct translation, but at least i tried ). The search for foods is quite snap, and that is what i wanted. I didnt want people to browse to some sub-menu to figure out their calorie intake, but i wanted something that was fast and easy.

When you have found what you are searching for, click the little plus-icon to the right, and it will be added to your menu. When you have done that, you can adjust how much you will base your calculation on, for instance 223 gr of trimmed pork tenderloin. This will automatically adjust your intake to 230 calories. Add another, for instance 300 gr of potato, this adds 231 calories and sums it all up to 461 calories for the menu you have chosen.

Another thing, if you want to compare different types of foods, for example the tenderloin and a potato, click the padlock to the left of the line and it will remain in the list when you search for the next thing. That way you can compare fat, proteins, etc..

I dont hope you see this as an add for my own site, because it is not meant that way. I have used this "tool" to be able to control what i put in my mouth, and i hoped that others could find it useful as well. I have no gain in people using the site (rather the other way around, it puts some pressure on the webserver :-))

I have a few features i want to add to the site, and if you have ideas, please post them and i will see what i can do. I want to add a user registration feature so you can save your menues. Apart from that, i want a good list of healthy menus easy accessible with a few clicks. A way of users registering their weight so they can monitor their weightloss without pen and paper.

Please, if you find any bugs, let me know, and i will try to correct them :-)

I hope to get some feed back from you all.

Merry Christmas!

// Yoc.

95 pounds!? Are you sure the programme you joined isn't called ANOREXIA!? :shock:

(On a side note, I can't believe the spammers are now spamming spam threads started by other spammers. You think if we leave them to it they'll just bug each other and leave the rest of us the hell alone? :lol: )

I think there should be a limit imposed on new members... either not allowed to post in the first 1-2 days of membership or only after 5 posts

I dont like the idea of limiting new members, I have not been here long and it really helped me to type my intro and get it all off my chest. Yeah it might stop a lot of this spamming but it disadvantages those who are genuine

And it gives us someone to mock before it's deleted. :lol:

Plus, sometimes it's hard to tell what is spam and what's just a new member wanting to share their particular weight-loss product of choice. Of course then it gets embarrassing if you've already started mocking them thinking they're a spammer. :oops:

well I don't know who the powers at be on this forum are, (ive seen the name scott passed around a couple of times) but maybe its worth a verification check from a mod becuase a newbies new thread is posted? As has been said, it never takes long for a mod to hop on spam

If you see a dodgy post just report it. Us mods will then take a gander at it and then decide if its spam or not.

See the ! mark on the top right corner of the post? Click that to report!
