In the past it was always difficult to accurately talley everything I was eating (ie sodium, protein, carbs, etc). The link below is to a GREAT little data base very similar to the one I have linked to the bottom of my blog.

Just type in the type of food you need to know about like "steak" or "Fish" and it will walk you through options until you can get to an option thats damn close if not exact. You can set it up to give you the value by ounce as well which I find very valuable!

I've included a screen capture of what you end up seeing....


Here's another one. I think I might like this one better as the choices are much more specific, though a bit cluttered. Still... this is a pretty thorough calculator. Pretty much type in whatever it is you're looking for and hit enter. Once the selection appears you can view results based on particular ounces or several other criteria which makes it very helpful.

Also, for those who may not know the calorie per gram breakdown is as follows - pay attention to the information on alcohol, it might surprise you:

Fat: 1 gram = 9 calories
Protein: 1 gram = 4 calories
Carbohydrates: 1 gram = 4 calories
Alcohol: 1 gram = 7 calories
