Today I talk about two free websites that I just got turned on to (wish I knew about these before I spent money on the other software titles).
The first one is www.sparkpeople.com and this site lets you do EVERYTHING. Track your food, your workouts, calories, birthdays, shopping lists, and more. It also has recipes, motivation, and wellness areas. Again, it does just about everything. It's free. It does have advertising on the site, and if you do sign up for the emails, those have a fair amount of advertising in them as well (but you don't have to sign up for these). HEY IT'S FREE. You can see in the image to the left the advertising on top, and the square advertising on the right side. I can tolertate it (especially if you are on a budget).
The second one is traineo.com this is a much simpler system. It lets you "Guestimate" how many calories you consumed, and it allows you to track other items (measurements, sleep, etc). It is simpler (and thus takes less time to learn). It did have one feature that Spark People didn't have, and that was you could enter a mentor or partner and it would email them your progress on a weekly basis. What a great way to keep you accountable.
So the traineo site is easier to learn. This doesn't mean the Spark People Site is hard. In fact, the Spark People site has a decent amount of help and it doesn't take long to catch on. Unless you hate advertisements, the Spark People site is really powerful.
