I have used both and both have been very good tools, depending on my diet at the time. keeps track of a lot more things, including vitamin levels, but doesn't have too extensive a database for certain foods and exercise. Keep in mind that it being caloriecount, it tracks calories, so if you're on a carb-counting diet, this may not be for you.

I'm currently using because the app is so much easier to use and a lot more user-friendly. The database for food seems a lot more extensive and accurate, though it doesn't seem to monitor water intake or vitamin intake at all. The emphasis for this site seems to be a calorie counter as well.

2011-08-15 [Mira Ravenheart]: Low blood pressure can be just as dangerous as high blood pressure, and occurs most often in women.

2011-08-15 [Akayume]: I have low blood pressure. :/

2011-08-15 [9jlriexqk,ktpk]: Me also. But my doctor said it was fine.

2011-08-16 [Mira Ravenheart]: I also have low blood pressure, but it's not dangerously low yet.

2011-08-16 [Mira Ravenheart]: When it is really low, you can black out, have strokes, get brain damage, etc.

2011-08-16 [Kiddalee]: I had it when I was younger. My doctor said that it's more common in young women, but she didn't say anything significant. I don't trust doctors recently. :-/

2011-08-17 [Mira Ravenheart]: Mild low blood pressure is fairly common in young women. I have some trouble with it myself.

2011-08-18 [Blaithin]: Oh I absolutely love this wiki! Fabulous idea. Has anyone suggested a Gardening sub page? I know lots of people, especially in urban centres, don't think they can, or bother to, grow some fresh produce. It can make a person feel great just growing it and helps with a healthy diet!

2011-08-18 [Nioniel]: A gardening page sounds great! :) Would you care to start one?

2011-08-18 [Blaithin]: I can see what I can put together, sure!

2011-08-18 [Nioniel]: Wonderful! :)

2013-04-29 [Nioniel]: *revives*

2013-04-29 [nehirwen]: Maybe there could be a slow carb recipes section as well! *has some recipes for that*

2013-04-29 [Nioniel]: Definitely!
If you want to put the recipes on separate wikis and link them, that would be cool.

2013-04-29 [Ravendust]: I'm still hanging around, you know good recipes for healthy snacks would be fruit smoothies, I don't remember exact measurements, I'll have to look mine back up... My blender has individual cups that you use, so I just pour the ingredients in haha...

2013-04-29 [Nioniel]: I make those daily, they should definitely be added. I'm with you, though, I don't have an exact recipe, I just toss in the sliced fruit and stuff until the smoothie looks right. A lot of the measurements depend on the type of fruit used, too. If you can figure out the measurements that you use, feel free to put it on a wiki and link it! :D

(I found a modified version of one of the smoothies I make regularly, so I added it)

2013-04-29 [Nioniel]: Added a Vegan section. I doubt I'll ever go completely Vegan, but I have several friends who are, and who have amazing recipes that they've shared with me.

2013-04-29 [nehirwen]: I'll make the wikis when I have some time left. :)

2013-04-29 [Nioniel]: Awesome, thanks!

2013-04-30 [Ravendust]: I will work on figuring out the measurements and get a page put up :)

2013-04-30 [Nioniel]: Thanks!
