Ratings and Reviews
Better Than Average
I've only been using it for 5 days so I'm still getting used to it but apparently the "later" option to review means "remind me every time I open the app" so I'm reviewing sooner than I normally would because I'm getting irritated with it. It's very easy to use but I would love a barcode scanner so I know I've got the exact numbers for what I'm eating. There seems to be many choices for the same foods with different numbers and for a new dieter that's confusing. The numbers are definitely off for the Atkins bars and shakes which throws my numbers for the whole day off. I love the water counter, very quick and easy! I have difficulty finding the right brands but it has a larger database than the free one I tried and I'm sure it's still growing. While we wait though there is an option to enter things yourself but you can't tag the meal when you do. All in all, I'd say it's the best app available for low carb diets but I am looking forward to future updates.
Needs an update
I love this app, but I have trouble finding some items I eat. I realize it is
Impossible to have everything but could it be updated? I love the quick carb button which I use if in a hurry or can't find something. Thank you!
Updated review: I Still love love love this app and keep coming back because it is so quick and easy. I have tried other apps with more info and other fancy stuff but I wind up not using them because it takes too much time. This app I use for keeping track of my carbs everyday. It keeps track of other stuff too and if you put in everything you get your protein, fat etc etc but if you are in a hurry it is so easy.
One thing though is that it does not go down from “I still need to drink 8 glasses of water” even when I enter in my water consumption (which also is super easy) I can look at my water page but it would be nice if it showed on home page. You can adjust how many carbs you want to eat each day. Thank you!
I was never really successful on a low carb diet. But I decided to give it another try and thankfully I found this app the day I started! I've only been doing it three full days and I've already lost five pounds! This app tracks many things including water intake. You choose the number of glasses you need to drink per day, and then every time you have one, you record it. From doing this, I know that I didn't drink enough in my past attempts. Also, I'm wanting to stay under 20 grams of carbs per day. (but have been staying around 10 grams) Using this app I realized that I was eating far too many vegetables for the induction phase on Atkins before.
For reviewers saying there aren't enough food listings in this app, need to be aware that you can add whatever food and its nutritional information that you want to be saved! Also, you can add your favorite recipes, adding the ingredients from the food list and it will add up all the carbs, etc. for you!
It also has graphs to track your progress. My only recommendation is that they put all the information onto one graph, instead of having a different graph for everything. That way you could track your weight loss and see what relation that was to how many carbs you had in a day, your water intake, etc.
This app is easy to use and if it helps me lose the weight, it's worth far more than the $2.99 I paid! Thanks for a great app!
