Many people repeat "A calorie is a calorie is a calorie". It's both true and not true. Calorie counting is a powerful technique when it comes to loosing excessive weight, but calorie counting alone, even if you use the most advanced calorie counter, wouldn't help much. When you try to lose weight, you consume less energy (food calories) to force your body to burn the energy already stored as fat (fat calories). What you have to realize is that your body needs to get adequate amounts of all essential micronutrients from food you consume especially when you try to lose weight.

This is where our "Calorie Counter" - the most comprehensive food and nutrition database search engine on the web comes to help. For each Food Item you find in our database we calculate the percentage of Recommended Daily Intake Values of all macro- and micronutrients the food provides. All the calculations are customized and done based on the information you provide in the "Profile Bar" (see above). You can use these percentages to optimize your diet, educate yourself on the food you eat and finally start to live a healthy lifestyle. Our ultimate goal is to help you to get where you want to be with your weight and your health. So start using the Calorie Counter today and let us know about your experience.

There's a saying that goes "you are what you eat". It doesn't really mean it that way literally, but if you think about it and try recalling the kinds of food that you regularly take, the saying is somehow accurate: People who live healthy lifestyles tend to eat healthy, while people, who don't, eat just about anything as long as it's edible.

The key tools you need to be successful with your diet plan:

Calorie Counter

A calorie counter helps you count your daily intake of calories. For people who are committed to eat healthy and stay trim, a calorie counter can be of immense help. The calorie counter also helps you estimate the number of calories your body requires per day for your kind of physique and physical activity. This tool also helps you estimate the energy your body requires to support your physical activities. All you require is details of your age, sex, height desired weight and current weight and the calorie counter helps you chart out the best for yourself.

For most people eating healthy is hard. But actually, developing healthy eating habits isn't as confusing as many people imagine. There are three main principles that will help with your healthy diet.
  • The first principle of is simply to eat a wide variety of foods. This is important because different foods make different nutritional contributions.
  • Secondly, fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes - foods high in complex carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, low in fat, and free of cholesterol - should make up the bulk of the calories you consume. The rest should come from low-fat dairy products, lean meat and poultry, and fish.
  • Thirdly, you should also try to maintain a balance between calorie intake and calorie expenditure - that is, don't eat more food than your body can utilize. Otherwise, you will gain weight. The more active you are, therefore, the more you can eat and still maintain this balance. Use calorie counting technique to keep track of consumed calories. Try our calorie counter tool.
Without the NewCalorieCounter's scientific approach to food, you may be depriving yourself of food, only to find out that your efforts are useless. For example - did you know that a tablespoon of peanut butter contains just about the same amount of calories as a bowl full of broccoli? Or that 100 grams of fried beef liver contains more than 8-10 times the recommended amount of Vitamin A? Or that overdose of Vitamin A can be fatal?

Why Count Calories?

A calorie counter is a way to count your daily caloric intake using our Calorie Counting Tool.

Put simply in dietary terms, a calorie is a unit of energy used by the body to perform metabolic functions. In a nutritional sense, calories come from the foods we ingest. When our bodies break down and digest this food, it uses the energy stored in the food (calories) to perform the daily functions necessary for life. Such functions include everything we do - breathing, walking, exercising, digesting, basically any energy-requiring function that we engage in.

You may be familiar with the "calories in versus calories out" idea. This idea states that:
  • In order to lose weight, you must consume less calories than you burn, and
  • In order to gain weight, you must consume more calories than you burn
Do you see now why it is important to keep track of your caloric intake in order to be successful? If you fail to do this, you will have no way of knowing if you are eating too much or too little. Start counting calories today using any available calorie counter.
