I just figured out the caloric tracking on a daily basis which is just what I needed
I am trying to gain weight and it appears that the site does not let you have a goal that is greater than your starting weight. This is a disappointment
Thanks for the feedback
Well, the site IS free
And the cals/nutrition is the tough part--dropping your weight goal and weigh-ins into a spreadsheet would be pretty easy.

Fitday won't record my weight b/c I want to gain...
I wanted to use fitday in order to calculate my caloric intake since I'm trying to gain weight. However, it seems that fitday only tailors to those that want to lose weight. Whenever I try to put in my goal weight I keep getting a "Your goal weight is greater than your starting weight" message. Wow, really fitday? I wanted to watch my intake so that it's balanced and not too excessive. I also would like to track how much I would need to gain the pounds by a general date, like those that are trying to do the opposite. This annoys me as much as people who assume that gaining weight is not as hard or important as losing weight. F-
If you want to gain weight, read the advice of Bob Schwartz in Diets Don't Work. He owned a gym and he said that when people came to him and wanted to gain weight, he put them on a diet and they would ALWAYS without fail end up gaining weight.
