There is a lot available on the CaloriesCount.com site that is of use to the consumer seeking general weight loss and fitness information. The one complaint that is immediately noted is that there is no information on weight loss supplements. For some dieters, “going it alone” is just not an option, whether it be for physical or mental reasons. Those consumers deserve to have their needs taken into account by any site that wants to remain comprehensive in its approach. Hopefully the Caloriescount.com site will expand to address the thousands of consumers seeking supplement information.
