  • Other people's calculators and tools.

    Nutrient Database Search the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference

    Fast Food Information
    It has a ton of crazy info on fast food :)

    The Athlete's Calculator calories, activity, body fat

    Calorie Calculator part of The Athlete's Calculator - running, cycling, swimming - determines activity factor from activity and distance.

    The nice part about these pages is is that they are available to anyone who has an internet capable computer. A newer (2000) browser is necessary but no expensive software. The pages can be saved from the internet and run when the computer is not connected to the web. They could also be shared and run from a floppy disk.
    There are many web pages with one or two formulas out there, this seems very inefficient, it would be nice to have all the useful tools on one page.
    These web "tool" pages use JavaScript and are mostly mouse driven. A version 4+ browser is necessary. These pages are still being tested - send suggestions for corrections to TMurray@sprucelog.com
