Worth the Price

A great app for ESRD patients! The only issue I have with it would be not being able to establish a profile or presets for the foods you eat on a regular basis. It's burdensome when you have to go back to the list of foods for each new day. Often people will eat the same foods several days a week and it would be sooo much easier if the app offered the ability to create a separate list of food fav's. Otherwise, it's a useful app for those who need to know what's in the food they eat. Worth the price.

Good but ...

I'm new to managing my diet for kidney disease. This app seems to cover many of the bases, but ...
There are many foods that have to be added. That would not lessen the value for me except that it's impossible to use the nutritional values for a single portion (the food values on the back of the package) because there's no way to indicate how many ounces or how many grams account for the values assigned to a serving. This works both ways. For instance, fresh raw eggs values are given for 1 cup. In order to assess my intake I have to know how many eggs make a cup. (It's not a major fraction.) For the other direction, if I'm entering a portion of an unlisted food that is, say, 36 grams, the only weight label I can find is 1 gram. I'm not about to divide all the values on the package by 36 to enter the food in the data base and then multiply the results by 36 when entering the portion eaten into the diary. Please provide a numerical wheel for each measure. (See LoseIt for a good example.)

Editing added food

After saving the values for an added food item, the program does not allow you to edit, only to delete.
When selecting portion sizes such as ounce or gram, the program should allow entering multiples. For example, you can only enter 1 ounce, not 4 ounces or 1.76 ounces. Similarly, you can enter 1 gram, not 7 grams or 14 grams.
A lot more food items need to be available. For example, walnuts and cashews but not almonds are available. Dairy milk and soy milk are available but not almond nor rice. The way the program is set up, you can report on what you gave eaten but it doesn't work for entering meals and snacks with appropriate values to guide you in devising a daily menu for future use. Hence, it's utility is very limited.
