    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Nutrition Info - The ONLY site you'll need for nutritional facts on all food.

    http://www.nutritiondata.com/

    They even have a "food pantry" option where you add the items that you look up, the quantities, and get a complete nutritional readout of your meals, including calories, fat intake, etc.

    My food log just got a powerful new friend.

    The website isn't perfect. For example, they don't have whole wheat pasta as an option. But it's pretty damned complete. A good measurement to know is that 100g = ~3.5oz. Since I weigh my food at home on a scale, this was important.

    After using the pantry option, you can download a CSV (Excel) file with the nutritional facts for that day.

    Here is an example, converted into TXT format:

    It woulda sounded cooler if you said "ally" instead of "friend".

    The only thing it doesn't have is the antioxidant content of food, but there's no defined standard for them yet.

    However, the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry came up with a list of foods and some quantities.

    (note for self - a cup of blueberries comes out to 155g, or about 5.5oz)

    Sure:

    I hunger = I eat
    I like food = I eat
    I not hungry = I no eat.
