During my participation in the Advanced Fitness and Performance Training Course from Eastern Oregon University we delved into the topic of nutrition.  I would like to pass on a couple of the websites which we utilized during the course.

The first site is from the USDA Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion, http://www.mypyramidtracker.gov.  This site allows you to create an account for free to keep track of not only your food intake for the day, but also your activity level.  After inputting your information into the system it allows you to calculate comparisons for Dietary Guidelines, Your Personal Nutrient Intake, Your Personal Nutritional Stats, and Your Healthy Eating History.

The second site also allows you to keep track of your food intake and physical activity as well.  It is sponsored by Spark People, http://www.sparkpeople.com/.  Their mission is simple:  to help millions of people live healthier lives and reach their goals.  They have a multitude of information on healthier eating habits, to healthy recipes, along with other healthy living tips.

I hope that these may be of help to those of you looking to improve your health and nutrition.
