- BUG FIXES
The more I use it the more I like it.
Start using this app as it is the one my Nutritionist uses, I was using MyNetDiary for about 12 months and all I can say is EasyDietDiary is harder to us and difficult to access detailed data eg total protein and carbs in food or consumed during the day.
I will talk to my Nutritionist this week and see if there is a better way to get the data.
At the present time (only using for less than a week) this app is no where near MyNetDiary.
Spoke to my Nutritionist and found someways to access data that I could not see before. This was done by selecting say carbs at the top bar and then the carbs for each item and the total carbs for each meal appear.
The more I use it the more I like it.
Pretty good app - best so far
Easy Diet Diary was recommended by my nutritionist. It's pretty easy to use and definitely better than others out there (yay! no ads) but sometimes I have to juggle the portion to get the calories to match the nutrition table on packet. Fibre, fat and sugar counts are really helpful! Suggestion- common dishes from restaurant/cafe outlets would be very helpful as it's too easy to avoid tracking them, as the EDD app only seems to cover frozen or packaged supermarket pre-cooked food. The exercise list covers everything under the sun for incidental activity but gym workouts seem to be for the heavy serious gym user, rather than the beginner.
One of the best out there
I've been using this app for a couple months and im super happy with it. Most of the food data is spot on and I really love the recipes feature. Some suggestions I have though are to implement a 'water tracker' kind of thing, where you can just quickly mark off the glasses you've drunk as opposed to adding water into your diary. Another suggestion I have would be if you could copy recipes so you can edit a separate one without losing the original. Other than that, awesome app!!
