Big news in food tracking! Our goal is to make tracking your food as easy as possible, and we’ve made some great improvements with this release.
- We’ve redesigned the Recently Tracked, My Food and My Meals tabs, keeping the spirit of the design you know and love, but making it cleaner and easier to read.
- Tracking foods from your Recently Tracked list is faster than ever! With the new “Quick Track” option, track food from your Recent list by tapping the plus sign to the right of the food item. Made a mistake? Delete foods from your “Tracked for Today” list by tapping the checkmark to the right of the food item.
- Editing and deleting custom entries from your My Food and My Meals lists can now be done with a quick swipe to the left.
- Accessibility is important to us, so we’ve extended Dynamic Type to support food tracking and VoiceOver navigation has been enhanced.

Husband lost 70 lbs just tracking calories
I was using a different app that my PT was using. I told my husband to get an app like this. Once he got MyPlate and he was tracking his calories he realized more of what he was eating. He was better able to avoid foods that were full of empty calories and keeping track of his foods helped him see what was making him sick and what didn’t. It tracks carbs, sugars, fats, sodium, and proteins. (More than this but that’s all we use). Once he realized how much he was actually eating he started making better choices a little at a time. He wanted to see how much he could lose before he started working out and he quickly lost 60lbs. He found that he was eating more than 10,000 empty calories before. Now he keeps it to under 2,000net calories. (It subtracts calories burnt that are tracked with his iWatch- I have an iFITNESS. Which is much cheaper and it syncs to this app as well). He loves it. It’s like a game to him. I tell everyone about this app because I’m so proud of him. Literally, all the motivation he needed was to be shown how much garbage he was eating. Now, because he’s eating less processed sugar, his sores heal faster, he’s off his gout medication,($200/month) and we’re hoping he’ll be off his bp meds next visit. His teeth are in better condition without all the soda. He can’t even stand to eat all the junk because it makes him sick. LOVE THIS APP!

Wow!! Great review and great story! We're so happy for you and your husband. Thanks for sharing :)
The developers responded to my issues in a timely manner. That was greatly appreciated. I have since been able to use the “edit” option under the “my foods” tab effectively. Problem one solved. And in regards to sync my two devices it would seem I didn’t sync the devices correctly. “Force sync” the device you just added food to. THEN “force sync” the other device you wish to update. Thanks MyPlate Developers!
Nice for tracking macros. However, I would like a couple more features added. 1.) Id like to be able to “modify” my food entries. There are a lot of in inaccurate additions to the food list. I think this is greatly due to not being able to edit an item once it’s been uploaded. I took the time to enter all the nutritional facts into an item, hit save, just to realize the protein was showing .18grams of protein, not 18grams. Very frustrating. 2.) I have two devices with this app, both under the same profile log in, and they don’t sync to each other. If the profile records could sync to an online data base that would be great. Hopefully these features are added soon and I’ll change my rating from 3 star. Thanks for listening.

Hi Marcineus! Thank you for your review and feedback. We have identified a bug with the green pop up button that you're using to create a custom food. The team is working on a fix for this issue right now! In the meantime, please follow the steps below to create a custom food item:
Select the meal you'd like to track the custom food to (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, or Snack), tap "My Food", and select "Create New Food". Enter the specifics of the food, and tap "Done" in the upper right corner.
When you add to your MyPlate tracking, the device you are working on should automatically sync with the LIVESTRONG.COM servers.
You can also do a manual sync from the “Account” tab at the bottom of the app screen. From there, you will select "Edit Profile", then scroll down and select "Force Sync"
If you are still having trouble with syncing, please email us at email@example.com!
Easy to Use, mostly
This app provides a lot of features and resources! You can keep track of calories, consumption of water, weight, calories burned, etc. They also have a Stronger Livestrong meal plan that includes work outs as well! I’ve just started it, and I’ve felt great so far! But now the server has seemed to entirely crashed. I can’t run anything on the app. I couldn’t log into anything or pull up my meal plan at all. They also email you your meals for the day and if you click on the image, it’ll take you to the recipe. Now when I click these links, they are unable to load. I have fantastic connection at my location so I found this odd. My phone and the app are entirely up to date, so I tried turning my phone off and on and uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Now I can’t login, sign up, or use the “forgot password” feature. Nothing will load, just keep getting a network error.
I’m hoping I still get the emails so I can keep with the meal plan since I have all the groceries, but this is incredibly frustrating. So far I haven’t received any emails (they also send weekly emails about tips and articles that I’m subscribed to) regarding this server issue.
So, in summary, the app works great and has lots of great features! Sadly, the app has a tendency to take forever to load anything (if at all) or crash some days...
