Social Networks

Social networks offer more than just information about weight loss, they offer community, friendship, support and inspiration. Facebook is of course the 800 pound gorilla of social networking, and it has many members who are openly sharing their weight loss successes and failures.

There is however another social network that is dedicated entirely to weight loss and I want to give it some "buzz":

FatSecret image
Fat Secret (fatsecret) is an Australia-based social network that aims to become the "facebook of fat". They have a very nice website and very well organized information. The crown jewels of fat secret however are its "apps", particularly "myfatsecret" available for blackberry, iphone and android. This is by far the best smartphone app for calorie-fat counting in the world.
