-iOS 5 support
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!
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.
Great app for counting carbs and calories!
This is a fantastic app for anyone looking to reduce their carbs and lose weight. I'd been using MFP, but that's not good for counting carbs. The database of food is almost as complete as MFP's. I also often use the "recipe calculator" function to add my almond flour muffins and other LC baked goods to the food log. I also count calories, and like that the overview page gives that info. I set my carb goal to 50 and the app tells me how many carbs I have left. I really like this feature in planning out my meals for the rest of the day. I also like the page where it gives you an overview of the # of carbs you've eaten each day in the past. Helps pinpoint the level of carbs where you lose the best. Overall, a highly recommended app. I've downloaded all the other low-carb apps, this is the best by far.
