FoodMood is a cute little app that helps & motivates you to write your food diary.
If you've ever tried to lose weight, or gain for that matter, you know how hard it is to keep track of the food you ate. All the apps out there come with a lot of bells and whistles that track your exercises and all, but instead of making it simple they over complicate the situation.
Well, that's why I've built FoodMood. I needed a fast, fun and easy way to keep track of the things I ate and keep a tab on the calories.
• NEW: You can also search online when autocompleting food items in the Add screen. You can enable / disable this in the profile screen.
Ratings and Reviews
Deducting stars for the method of inputting calories. Instead of typing in numbers, which would be FAR more accurate (especially for people on very low calorie diets), the app currently uses a “wheel” of sorts which only goes in 50-calorie increments.
This also irks me because many people while attempting to lose weight do not track calories accurately. They assume that because something is “healthy” like a vegetable that it must be “negative calories” and therefore not count.
Your app just perpetuates the belief that not every calorie needs to be counted; that people can “guesstimate” calories eaten and still lose weight.
It’s ok though. I’ll just take it with a Diet Coke.

Hi there, no need to be rude.
It's a design choice, a fun element.
The app's main goal is not to count calories like crazy. That's why you can input items with 0 calories.
The app's goal is to create a habit for you to log your meals. And most importantly log your mood.
When I was seeing a nutrition doctor, she always asked me to log my meals. I always forgot. She wanted to know what drove me to eat that particular item. For instance, I ate a whole chocolate bar when I was angry or depressed.
Hope it makes sense.
Thanks for the review though, and for using FoodMood.
Great idea for an app! I like the ease and speed with entering info! Very casual and doesn’t make you feel bad about slipping up here and there!
