But at some point in our lives, we are probably better off paying more attention to the calorie and nutritional content of the food we eat.

CalorieKing - http://www.calorieking.com is a great website for discovering the calorie and nutritional content of thousands of foods. CalorieKing provides nutritional information for over 50,000 foods. From generic foods including fruits, vegetables and meats, to familiar supermarket brands, as well as information on over 200 fast-food and restaurant chains, this is easily one of the most complete consumer databases on food nutrition.

CalorieKing keeps this remarkable nutrition database up-to-date by sourcing high-quality nutritional data from scientific databases such as the USDA as well as many food manufactures and food industry boards and councils.
