Someone had mentioned a Paleo tool similar to Cronometer. It was brand new. Does anyone remember what this was?

I tried it for a few minutes for today's food, but I don't think I'm going to switch from Cron-O-Meter just yet. I liked some of the tracking, but was a little taken aback when I put in the recipe for the Well Fed Chocolate Chili recipe and it told me there was added sugar - so it took away my "Strict Paleo" tag... I went through EVERY ingredient looking for that "Added Sugar" and there was none to be found. That, and the recipe management could use a little work. I like knowing what the total weight of a recipe is, so I can count the number of portions in a batch. PT doesn't do that (yet).

PaleoTrack gives you a summary of where you are for the day vs Paleo markers eg whether you are Legume-free, Dairy-free, Grain-free etc, along with useful extras like Omega 3/Omega 6 ratios. I don't know Cron-o-meter very well I'm afraid...I switched from NutritionData as it was way too preachy CW for my liking.

Here's an MDA thread about it, if people want to follow the latest features: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread39195.html

My main issue with cronometer is that the nutrient guidelines don't match the paleo recommendations. I've changed them by hand, but it's not like there are places I can annotate the references, so I end up forgetting what I've changed and why. It would be nice to have that built in. So I'm looking forward to someone answering this. In fact, maybe one of us should make it a full on question?

Does it do anything that Cron-O-Meter doesn't?

Serious question.
