Nutrition machine/web site/program?

I'm sure this has to exist in one of these forms.

I want to invest in something where I can plug in a food and create meals with the data that it retrieves.

The idea being that I could plug stuff in and it would display the nutritional values (calories, protein, fat, carbohydrates, etc) and that would help me plan out my meals ahead of time. I want to see exactly what a balanced diet looks like for me for a day.

The ratio I've seen used is about 40/40/20 for Carbs/Protein/Fat intake and 10 times your body weight per pound of calories to eat in a day. Mine would be a 10-15% deficit on calories, of course. I also hear the 40% protein is high unless you're a serious weight lifter and want to gain mass. So I'm guessing it would probably be a better idea for me to use a 50/35/15 ration since my first goal is to shed all this blubber.

If I don't find what I'm looking for, I guess I can do some web site research and just start tracking all the label content of what I buy, but I figure I'd look for something like what I have in mind first hoping someone here has a good recommendation.

Has anyone found and/or is using such a resource?

I downloaded it. Still have it. Didn't like it. Kept with the web based instead. :shrug:

Isn't it the same thing? How does the downloaded version differ?

I was going to buy the CD so that I could share it with some friends after using the online version a while.

Well, I have a friend named Christine Nguyen, and she said that it was not too bad.

yeah my g/f got one.. she was all about it for the first 2 weeks then she stopped entering in what she was eating. She started back again after that week though. I think it could work if you were to enter in everything correctly. But ya.. 400$ is crazy for that thing. You can't even wear it to swim..

Whoa.

Yah...uhhm. No for now. If I had that kind of money to spare though, I might consider it.
