I have a few ideas:
1. Weight Watchers has an online version of their program both free and for a fee which might be helpful to your husband. The fee-based program gives you more bells and whistles on the site. There are community groups on the site specifically for guys which is free. (Register, then click on Community tab, message boards, and then "Guys on a Diet") The fee-program gives you a nutrition calculator too.
2. Nutritional calculator: This is obviously a very US-based website so you might not care for it but it does have a nutrition calculator: www.mypyramid.gov. It covers the USDA food recommendations for "Americans".
3. www.allrecipes.com is a site with jillions of recipes on it. It might have a nutrition database.
4. Recipe Manager: Your Cooking Companion (http://tinyurl.com/7nbmy) is a freeware downloadable program for recipes. The description says that it contains a database of nutrients too. I've never tried it myself but it does have good reviews. I'm also confident that there aren't any nasties (spyware, adware) that come with the download. It came well recommended by folks I know who are very discerning about freeware downloads.
Hope this helps.
Good luck. (04/25/2005)
I lost weight last year using the information from calorieking.com. This is a website where you can access the nutritional info for basic ingredients as well as fast foods. They also have a book that is very and relatively inexpensive. I used the program for my PDA and decided to buy it after the two week free trial. (04/25/2005)
I've tried a recipe program called BigOven. It's at http://www.bigoven.com/. You can download a free 30 day trial to see if you like it. The cost is 29.95 or 34.95 depending on their 'sale'. I plan to buy it when I can come up with the money. It is very easy to use.
It allows you to import in recipes easily and has nutritional database that you can link to the recipes. (04/25/2005)
