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!
A few features short of five stars
This app is a very convenient way to track yourself on a low carb diet! I've found myself entering lots of custom foods like kimchee, protein shakes, or low carb coconut macaroons...so it takes a bit of time to set up with your normal eating routines. The way your daily diet progresses on the overview graphic is awesome!
That said two things held me back from making this a 5-star review:
(1) All foods you eat are broken into breakfast/lunch/dinner but there needs to be a snack category (or midday, mid afternoon, nighttime snacks). Particularly because folks modulating their insulin or on the TKD would want track their eating with finer granularity, I would recommend the addition of "snack" meal divisions.
(2) When assigning food to your log it is uploaded to breakfast/lunch/dinner according to the *current* time of day. That's just wonky! Sometimes, I don't have time to do my logging right away, and so it would be more convenient to select the time the meal was consumed so I can backlog it.
Beyond those two significant lacking features it is a great app; as you adjust to using it you may spend a bit of time uploading custom foods, but it quickly becomes very easy and intuitive. Recommended!
Good app but, lots of room for improvement.
What I enjoy about this app is it counts and keeps log of daily carbs along with a pie chart of balance based on daily settings. I really wanted to enjoy this app more but, there are some can't ignore issues such as;
Counts calories but cannot set a calorie limit.
Counts exercise but doesn't subtract calorie burn from total calories. So if you have a limit you have to toggle between screens and so the math yourself. This can even be achieved by adding exercise to main page along with calorie/carbs.
Personalized main page feature would be great! Inputs such as fiber, fat, could be seen, added or removed from main screen would be a big plus.
Very limited list of foods in database. There is a manual place for additions but no quick serving sizes in oz, grams, etc.
Most food choices are listed in servings. Again, cannot just place amount in measure without doing math.
These simple changes would make this app a total 5 star product. I would be willing to pay for a version that have the options listed above.
