Be Honest With Yourself ,

Try the trial -I loved it.

Like it is with any aspect of your life, it is up to YOU to take control over the changes you want to make. Try the trial, and be honest with yourself about what you're eating. This program made it VERY easy to monitor all the things I have been consuming. I found out my poor eating habits, and that was half the battle.

- You may have to input some nutritional information BUT the majority of foods are already in there for you / it SAVES food / the internet can help look up N.I.

- Effective, fast-responding customer support (within 24 hours)

- For ~5 bucks this program is a steal

BOTTOM LINE: You'll probably spend more money in the form of your personal time looking for a better program.

J’adore ce logiciel

Très apprécié une fois qu’on apprend à le maîtriser. 
Permets de s’adapter facilement et d’y ajouter nos aliments, une fois ceci fait, c’est presque toujours les mêmes choses qui reviennent.
Une chose appréciée est le fait de pouvoir combiner plusieurs aliments pour faire une recette et y inscrire les portions qu’on veut.
Les données qu’on peut en soutirer sont des plus utiles.
Pour utiliser pleinement ce logiciel, il est préférable de savoir la langue anglaise.

Needs improvement

I got this because it was the only calorie counter that I could find that also tracked exercise and had a journal as well. I agree with the other user that it is hard to use. Just about every food has to be entered manually- same with exercise. The journal entries are not indexed, so if you wanted to find an entry from, say a year ago but don’t know the exact date you would have to look at every month’s entry to find it. When you open the application it doesn’t go to the current date, it goes to the date you last opened the application and there is nothing in the preferences to change it.
