Description

Other calorie counting apps boast 5 MILLION+ FOODS, but **news flash** nobody actually eats 5 million foods! In reality, people eat the same things on a regular basis, so instead of showing you a long list of irrelevant foods, we think it’s much more useful to show you PHOTOS of the most common foods people eat.

The Carbs & Cals app contains 3,500+ food photos to help you get your portion size just right.

PERFECT for:
• Type 1 diabetes (carb counting)
• Type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes
• Weight loss (calorie/fat counting)
• Anyone on the 5:2 or 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet
• Fitness training (boosting carbs or protein)
• Healthy eating (increasing fibre or fruit & veg)

The bestselling and award-winning Carbs & Cals products help thousands of people control their diabetes and weight every year.

We’ve listened to customer feedback and this update has been completely redesigned for 2017 with a brand new style and user experience - check it out today!

Best of many options

Apps like this have become commonplace and there are hundreds of websites offering similar data. Carbs and Cals is by far the best of them, offering generic portion photography which is brilliant. We use it for carb counting and probably couldn’t live without it. That isn’t to say it’s faultless.

Other foot tracking apps contain far more branded food alongside barcode scanning (check out Fitbit!) C+C has restaurant food but no photos which in itself is ok, it needs more to make it truly useful as otherwise you can’t compare the meals. Eg prezzo pizza - they don’t offer carbs on their website so I went to compare it zizzi which must be similar but there are no pictures. Don’t get me wrong, if we were in zizzi I would be singing it’s praises for having their menu.

Carbs and cals could almost do with a second app or area just for collating branded food and restaurants.

Good but some functions don’t work and lots of foods are missing

This is fairly simple and intuitive to use and there are some very helpful instruction videos. However, I have just added a day’s worth of food and drink and found most weren’t in the database, meaning I had to add them myself. Two functions don’t work: adding a photo of the food and the “delete from dashboard” option (used if, for example, you make a mistake when adding a food.) I have checked my phone settings to make sure the camera is enabled for the app, but still no joy.
Update - I’ve been using the app for 3 days and am frustrated at the lack of branded or supermarket’s own foods, e.g. Tesco 3 cheese bloomer loaf, After eight mint. I couldn’t find any generic equivalents in the database either. Almost everything I haven’t been able to find on this app has been available in My Fitness Pal. I feel like I’ve wasted £4.99 because I can do more in a different app for free.

Life saver!

As a diabetic who’s is injection dependent, I started carb counting to help control of insulin and blood levels (with the carb blood machine) my diabetic nurses advised I download this.

It’s helped control my blood so much! It doesn’t have all the foods but it’s also a easy guide. You can add your own food in by inputting the guide on the back of the food packet. And create meals so it’s all there ready. And when you’re eating out it has most of the fast food places and info that you wouldn’t know.

I highly recommend this for diabetics that are carb counting. You input what you ate/drank then it tells you the carbs, it out it into your blood machine, makes correction doses due to your blood level and it tells you how much insulin to have!
