Data-retrieval-friendly alternatives to MyFitnessPal.

Looking for recommendations for sites with similar functionality to MFP but which make one's data available via REST or some other means that can be fit into a scripted workflow for my vanity web portal project.

Calorie counting has really worked for me over the last year and change. And while I really don't mind their web interface or the various (ubiquitous?) apps on various platforms, I want to pipe some of this delicious data to my vanity web portal. However it is impossible to get one's data back from them without paying $9.99/mo and even then it's a manual button click to export data in a CSV file. I don't really care about any of the premium features that come along with the subscription so it's basically $10/mo to get information I give them back from them via an unwieldy process.

So I'm interested in recommendations for alternatives that check these boxes
  • Online calorie database
  • Many avenues to adding new data (browser/phone/tablet)
  • Retrieval via REST/SOAP/??? API
