I'm updating some old pages from my site, and I thought this may be interesting for some of you - it provides a fairly accurate estimate of your daily caloric needs. I am using an new formula (not the classic Harris-Benedict one), which was shown in recent studies to be more accurate, in particular for people with extra weight.

Feel free to let me know, preferably under the page's comments section, if it helped you or if you have any questions.

Like always, scientia potentia est (though when it comes to eating, scientia is not always enough potentia, isn't it?).

This is an article written by Daniel Minteer, my friend and neighbor. I don't usually promote books or other services on my site, but he and his wife, Deborah, recently published a book on getting out of debt - "Boiled Down Money Goo" - that is excellent. If I could have my way, I would make it required reading for all young adults :-).
Thanks for the article, Daniel!

Eating during old age becomes, for some people, more of a hurdle than a pleasure. I wrote a piece touching on some of the more important nutritional considerations for this age group.

What happens when you combine the power of Javascript, JQuery, AJAX, PHP and MySQL with HTML and CSS? Many things can happen, but in my case a one-of-a-kind calorie counter was born.

Whether you are trying to lose weight, or you are just curious to find out how many calories (and other nutrients) you are eating in a day, please give it a try.

I'd be curious to hear your impressions, especially if you find this tool user-friendly/intuitive. Also, if you'd like any new features added, please use the comments section at the bottom of the page to let me know.

BTW, if you have a site or blog and would like to link to this tool, please use 'the calorie counter" in the anchor text. Thank you!

Scientia potentia est

Note: There is a bug in some newer versions of FireFox that prevents the grand total calories from being displayed. This will be fixed soon.
