    myfitnesspal I think is the best but I have also used foodfocus, but have heard it can be unreliable.

    Both will come up in google :]

    I think www.myfitnesspal.com is the one most people use.

    What did you find restrictive on WW though. The basics of WW and cc are pretty similar...

    I use foodfocus.co.uk. Would like to move to fitnesspal but all of my details are stored on foodfocus so am sticking there for now!

    I find ww difficult, just because i am only on 17 pts a day. I am going to have a look at counting calories to see if it works out better :) just not made up my mind yet .

    The thing is if youre struggling with points will CC be easier? Its basically a variation on the same thing....

    This is going to sound crazy I know Starlight
    but having done both ( still on calorie counting ) for some reason
    you seem to get more for your calories than you do for your points

    I do Lorraine yes because nearly all products you buy have the calorie count on them
    so you pick it up ready to go, where as if it wasn't pointed you'd have to work it out first
    I can't be doing with that lol

    I find the tesco online grocery website is a great source for nutritional info as it has all the info for most products. Its always more accurate to get the info from the pack if possible just in case of recipe changes.

    Good luck with CC if you decide to try :)
