Developed by Dietitians, GO is the easiest meal and fitness tracker you’ll ever use. Simply pick your color, pick your size… and GO! This finely crafted app offers one-touch meal entry that creates a visual food log more powerful, understandable and useful than typical calorie trackers.
GO helps real people get real results:
"This app has been a tremendous aid in bringing accountability to my food intake and has helped me lose 50 lbs. since February. Keep up the awesome work!" ~ Chris
GO plots each entry on an easy-to-read timeline in daily, weekly or monthly formats. This zoomed out view helps you see the big picture with a single glance. And when it comes down to it, your day-to-day habits are what really make a difference in your health.
GO can help you achieve your goals in the following ways:
1) The visual timeline is eye opening. You’ll instantly realize your personal strengths and weaknesses. Are you eating too much at night? Eating too many snacks? Skipping breakfast too often? Not getting enough workouts logged on a weekly basis? One look at a weekly or monthly timeline, and you’ll be empowered to make changes that pertain to YOU and the intricacies of your lifestyle.
2) You’ll find new motivation to stay on track. Why? Because you’ll naturally reflect on your choices. You’ll find yourself thinking: “I’ve eaten green healthy meals all day and I don’t want a huge red unhealthy meal on my timeline” Or you may have a spiraling out of control “red” day – with lots of unhealthy meals, and you’ll find yourself wanting to add something “green” to make your timeline look better. Trust us, this really happens.
3) You’ll be consistent. GO makes it easy to capture the most important details in seconds. It’s fast, it’s easy and it’s visual. That means you’ll use it consistently and make better choices more often – making you healthier with each positive choice.
GO is built on the science of practical, everyday life. Typical calorie trackers are rarely accurate because we all tend to underestimate our food intake, overestimate our activity and we rarely, if ever, have the exact weight/size/brand/recipe to enter, making the whole process “just a guess” anyway. The point is, most of know when we make healthy or not-so-healthy choices… what we really need is the motivation to make better choices - and the visibility to see the impact of our choices over time.

Ratings and Reviews
It's okay, but could use improvement
I really do like this app compared to a calorie tracker. They both have it's pro's and con's; however, I'm left wondering which color to use for certain meals. It's left up to the users to decide and I feel there should be more examples of which food fits in which color category.
I am also interested in seeing how much water I drink throughout the day and how hydrate I am for the week and month. Maybe there could be a separate bubble for water. It's not just about the food you put in, but how much water.
Good idea, rubbish in executing it
Was really excited to get this as I'm a visually focused person, but found myself frustrated and disappointed.
It allows for photos, but doesn't allow for you to use photos from your library. As a new user, I don't automatically think of opening GO right away to take a picture of a meal -- I'll just take a picture of it. But GO doesn't offer the ability to add pictures into the app/timeline... You must take it as a live feed, straight to the app.
This would maybe be fair enough, if you could at least have a green generic circle WITH A DESCRIPTION WHEN YOU CLICK. The "edit" meal button allows you to delete a meal, but at no point came you name/describe even keyword it. This is also VERY unhelpful if you have a small snack/meal, because the size of the circle correlates to size of meal, so if you take a picture of a small snack you have an image the size of the tip of your index finger to look at, and since you can't name anything, a week later you'll be squinting trying to figure out what you ate because it's such a low quality picture (that doesn't zoom) you won't be able to tell.
Was really excited about potential of this app but wow, such a waste. Seriously, use something like Instagram instead. You'll get your visual needs, can use existing photos, have decent sized photos, and can label/describe everything.
UPDATE: July 2015 - I redownloaded this over a year later to see if it had improved. It hadn't. Waste of money, space and time.
I think this app is great. I've been looking for a way to track my food without counting calories. I already know what not to eat and how much I should or shouldn't eat, it's more about remembering what all I have eaten in a day and seeing trends. I would give it 5 stars except there doesn't seem to be a way to edit my entry or add it in at a later time. (I accidentally deleted an entry trying to edit it and I can't add it back in.) Also, the photos can't be added from the camera roll. Other than that it's great. Thanks.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
