Offers Travelers Mobile Calorie Tracking System
your diet on track while traveling can
be difficult, even for the most honest
of dieters. Tracking calories and eating
healthy on the road is hard with larger
than life restaurant portions and on-the-go
fast food options.
However, CalorieKing.com — the leading
provider of food awareness tools for weight
management — recently launched its
newest tool to help travelers stay healthy
while on the road.
The free, Internet-enabled mobile phone
or smartphone search tool from the CalorieKing
Mobile Web Site gives travelers
access to the website's 50,000 item food
database for details including calories,
carbohydrates, fat, protein and more.
The new search is specially optimized
for mobile phones with small displays
supporting keyboard shortcuts and providing
faster loading times.
Members of CalorieKing Club, CalorieKing's
subscription-based online weight management
community, can now access their member
account to answer schedule-sensitive questions
like: Should I have dinner at home tonight?
Have I earned a treat or should I extend
my evening walk today?
In addition, members can now directly
log food consumed using their mobile phone
— an option that may help prevent
"calorie amnesia" and lead to
improved weight control.

provide reliable calorie-balance information
at the time and place where a person can
use it to make a better choice,"
said Keith McGuinness, CEO of CalorieKing.
"With so many commercial messages
enticing Americans to eat more, it is
important that those who seek to control
their weight, or to manage their diabetes,
encounter truth about food and physical
activity when and where it is most useful."
CalorieKing, already highly-regarded for
its calorie-focused approach to weight
control, will continue to develop tools
that help improve management of diseases
