    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.
