I know there have been lots of posts about food logs and which ones people like - hopefully my question is not too repetitive. Which food log do people based in the UK like and why? I've tried fitday.com for some time but I do struggle with finding MY foods on it. For instance I can't just type in burger - because it always goes to a hamburger complete with bun and I don't know what to call the burger itself in the US. Meat patty? Plus I like my swede but can never remember how to spell the American word (can't be bothered to check it again now but it starts with r and ends in a and is weird!) There are a few other weird things with fitday - like I couldn't find 80% dark chocolate on there. I'm sure it is just a question of using the right language so is there a food log that is UK based? Sorry if something like this has been asked before.

I used myfitnesspal.com. It has a pretty decent database that covers UK and US. There have only been a scant few things I haven't found on there.

My Fitness Pal is the best one I've used, although I don't use it daily.
It has a great iPhone/Android app that allows you to scan barcodes and most importantly set macro-nutrient ratios; making life very simple!

I use cron-o-meter. A lot of the foods are American but it has a facility to input your own foods with values and gives a carb/protein/fat breakdown as a pie chart.
