This site will be deprecated!

This site is being retooled. Changes include:

  • Professional Layouts, Blog, Personal Services, Restaurant Services
  • The USDA Branded Food Products Database has been added
  • Food search database increases from ~30,000 to ~275,000 items
  • Underlying tech moves to ASP.NET Core, Entity Framework Core, Bootstrap 4, etc.
  • Full use of async / await / TPL (Task Parallel Library) for performance boosts

Data will be migrated from the current system. If you have used the diary, label, and/or recipe system and would like to continue doing so, please ping The Programming Chef with your login. I will ensure your data continuity and login.

The majority of the work is done.
Switch over will begin in several weeks.
Legacy pages will initially remain available.

Stay hungry, my friends!

Help Me Eat Healthy!

helpMeEatHealthy, as well as geeksWhoCook, geeksWhoDiet and geeksWhoEat, were inspired almost 10 years ago. I was looking for a site where I could cut and paste an entire recipe, press one button, and get a best guess nutrition label based on recognized food nutrition databases. Fast. Accurately. Alas, every site required tedious clicking and choosing. Measurements were not logically inferred. Data was not always up to date. Food diaries were not FAST and mobile ready.

This site attempts to fill the gap...

Feel free to email me at The Programming Chef.

Track Your Eating

It has been shown that the best way to lose and manage your weight is to write down everything you eat.

Our Meal Diary is fast and mobile ready!

There are reports and graphs!

An instruction video will be available soon.

Food Flow

Is a food missing? Add it from the label on its packaging. Everyone can use it in recipes and meal diaries!

Is a sauce recipe used in a lasagna recipe? Recipes can be ingredients in other recipes!

Do you have a meal that you eat regularly? Add a personal menu (say, your typical dinner salad) to the meal diary, and use it over and over!
