While it would be great to have a nutritionist on hand at all times to guide us while ordering at restaurants, it just isn't feasible. They have busy lives and we probably couldn't afford that kind of customer service anyway. If you can't have a traveling nutritionist, you can keep the next best thing in your pocket. CalorieKing, one of my favorite calorie and nutritional information websites and pocket guides, has created a version of its site designed specifically for mobile phone users. It is easy to use and the interface is not clogged up with a lot of graphics so the sought out information downloads to your phone quickly.
Here's how it works:
Type http://www.calorieking.com/mobile/ into the browser of your phone and begin searching. You now have 50,000 meals, fast food and chain restaurant items at your fingertips, wherever you have a mobile connection. The other great bonus is that it is free. You don't need to sign in or register.
