Thanks Herb,
  I thought that with technology so advanced that there may have been a
  program I haven't heard of yet that is simple and easy to use (My mother
  is quite old and I can't see her googling anything:).  Something like a 
  journal but that gives solid results at the end of the day.  Such as
  how much cholesterol, proteins, carbohydrates and vitamins you absorb
  in one day. You punch in what you eat and you get actual results, 
  I think it would be a great idea to promote proper health.  
  People today really don't know what they are putting in there bodies.  
  Anyhow thanks again,

  My guesses would include the WeightWatchers site and TonyRobbins 
  site -- Tony was on Larry King the other night saying he had a free
  program fro the new year and I believe WW has diet guides online.
Both are (obviously) designed to get you to sign up and
  spend money with them, but providing free content is a 
  legitimate way to try to sell a product.

  A google search should get you more; something like (untested):
      [  nuitrition | diet  log | diary  carbohydrates | protein | fat ]
  The vertical bar | is OR, but you can use the capitalized word OR
  if you prefer.
  You can play around with this or add other keywords that follow
  more closely what you hope to find.
  Notice that Google accepts quotes for phrases and * as a wildcard
  within a phrase:   "diet guide"   "food * guide"
  You can restrict searches to certin URL patterns with "SITE:",
  e.g, this will only find you key words at US registered universities,
colleges, etc:
          [  diet guide  site:edu ]
  Tilde ~word will find synonyms for a keyword:  [  ~diet ~diary ]
  And if you find a lot of "wrong" sites, you can preface a word with minus
  to DISALLOW pages with that word:
      [  ~diet ~diary -weightwatchers ]
  Another variation:  Inurl: can find pages with a word within a URL, eg.:
      [ ~diet ~diary  inurl:planner ]
  And while probably not useful for this quest, you can also specify certain
  useful file types:
      [ "diet  * guide"  filetype:pdf | filetype:doc | filetype:xls ]
  I through the xls in as an afterthought since you may actually find
  a (free) spreadsheet that will help you maintain such a diary/log.
  Let me know if you need more or more direct help.
