Here are 5 free calorie counter websites.
Consumption of calories in an excessive amount is not good for health and same is the case in having calories in less amount. You must have a balanced diet for a fit, active and healthy body. For this task, these websites will come in handy.
All these websites are good to calculate the amount of calories available in a particular food item. Along with this, you can also get the nutritional information (fat, protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, etc.) for any food item. So you will have all the details about the food you are having in your daily diet. You can also maintain your diet, gain fat, lose weight by changing the food items after seeing the amount of calories present in a particular food item.
Let’s start with the first free calorie counter website in this list.
Free Online Calorie Counter (Homepage)
Free Online Calorie Counter is a separate section available on FitWatch website. It takes the help of FitWatch and USDA‘s food database to let you search for foods and find the total amount of calories in a particular food item. Not only just calories, it gives detailed information about nutrients in a particular food.
For example, you can find out total fat, cholesterol, protein, vitamins, iron, sodium, and other constituents of any food item. So really a good information related to nutrients and calories is available under this section. There are also many user entries related to food details that might not be accurate, but still it’s a very good platform to know the calories available in a food item. You can use this section of FitWatch website without sign up. However, you can also sign up for free to set your calorie goal, track calories, and other features.
Update 2022: This website no longer exists now. We recommend you to try some other alternative instead.
Spelt (or Spe.lt) is my favourite calorie counter website in this list, because of its simplicity. You can check calories present in a food item in real-time. That means, as soon as you type keywords to search for a food, suggestion will be in front of you with the total amount of calories.
Apart from this, it also shows protein, fat and carbohydrates percentage present in any food item. A beautiful bar chart is also plotted automatically to view this information.
