Dieting the techno way

For the techno-happy among you, you can use the web to help track you eating habits with Twitter.

“Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?”

Twitter is like a micro-blogging tool. Rather than maintaining a large diary/article based blog (like this one), Twitter is made for the quick, regular updates that you can post throughout the day.

You can add friends and keep track of what they are up to or thinking.

Now, Tweetwhatyoueat works hand in hand with Twitter to give you your own, PRIVATE food diary:

* Setup your own Twitter food diary in moments.
* Track what you eat through your phone, IM or the web.
* Enter calories for the food items you know, search the database for those you don’t
* Simple setup and easy to maintain

As with Twitter, you can add Tweetwhatyoueat (twye) as a instant messenger friend and message them you food items as you eat along with the calorie count if you wish.

At the end of the day, you can then look back over all your messages as a diary of the day’s intake.

Full details are on the Tweetwhatyoueat help page.
