    Thanks for the heads-up on how long the Planner is down.

    I checked out the Food-o-meter, and I don't like it as well as the Calorie Count website, which gives you the exact ounces and grams of what a "serving" is. Without that, I really don't see the point. It's way too easy to underestimate your calorie intake. So I measure everything either on a food scale or a measuring cup/measuring spoon of some sort.

    After I've reached my goal weight and maintained it for three years, then maybe I'll be happy estimating my daily calories intake.

    Is the Planner also down? I can't seem to place my goals.
