The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture provides a free handy tool called SuperTracker. You can look up foods to learn their nutritional value (based on analysis by the USDA’s Agriculture Research Service), enter your food intake for the day and see how many calories and what percentages of the daily recommended amounts of the food groups you are eating, and track your physical activities to see whether you are moving enough to maintain or lose weight. You can set up and save a personal profile and get support from a virtual coach. It’s been running since last December. Try it out!
