Websites such as SuperTracker and Food-A-Pedia that are part of the federal government's MyPlate nutrition program help dieters track how much they eat and show recommended servings and food groups, registered dietitian Mary-Jo Sawyer writes. MyFitnessPal.com and SparkPeople.com also track calories and have larger food databases, while "The Complete Book of Food Counts, 9th Edition: The Book That Counts It All" and "The CalorieKing Calorie, Fat & Carbohydrate Counter 2012" can help dieters who do not want to use online resources.
