Helpful BUT needs to stay updated
This app is very helpful to anybody following the FMD diet. However, esp because since it's a paid app, it needs to be updated and maintained. If you are following the 'free' FMD group on Facebook, there are numerous alerts of the inconveniences or inconsistencies on the app. Please update the app. For instance, when making a fruit smoothie, you should be able to pick two or more fruits in the fruit pull down, not just one-same for the other pull downs. There should be a more convenient way to set the time of your meals. The recipes should have active links. Where is a listing for the nut milks in Phase 3? I was only able to find coconut milk. Serving sizes should be noted when looking at the pull down, not after you log it.
Helpful but could be better
This app is a great companion to the cookbook and makes it easy to track you day and stay organized on what to eat/ what you need to buy. I agree with some of the other reviews that it could use some updating. It definitely needs a weight loss graph or tracker of some kind to be able to see your progress. Also you should be able to add by meal to the grocery list as well as by day and then when you pull up your grocery list it should have a combined categorized list. For example instead of telling me I need 1 1/2 apples three different times it should just say 4 1/2 apples. The next thing that bothers me is there are meals on the app that are not in the cookbook so it would be nice if it would provide the recipe or a link to find it. The daily tips are great but I would like to see more information on why certain foods are only for certain phases even though it lines up with her plan. Brussel sprouts for example, why only phase 3 when veggies are unlimited all the time? Overall though the app is definitely a good tool to use and this diet so far is truly working. Shedding pounds quickly and I’m not hungry in the process or craving anything in particular!
I'm enjoying using this app injunction with the book. It makes planning meals for this diet so easy. You can make changes to the start date by editing your profile. Once you select your meals, you can choose to send to a grocery list. You can also email the grocery list to who ever is doing the shopping. The only complaint is that all of the meal recipes are not in the book. You have to get the cookbook to have all the recipes that it refers to. But if you've decided to make a lifestyle change then you may as well get the cookbook also. And it would be great to be able to add customized meals/recipes that are not included in the app or cookbook. Hope this helps to repair or stoke your metabolism!
