Resources for Weight Loss and Calorie Counting

I suggest this site for your food searches: http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/

Most of the sites out there get their basic data from this government food nutrient database. It's very simple to use and it gives you plenty of options for portion sizes so you don't have to do a lot of calculations yourself to come up with the correct calorie counts for the foods you've eaten.
