Good for vegetarians!
I like this app a lot. I am vegan and have an iron deficiency, so my purpose with this app is to make sure I get enough protein and iron each day. I'm not big into calorie counting, but I also don't want to go too far over my calories and I want to make sure my carb/fat/protein ratio is where I want it. This app makes that very easy!
I only have two suggestions/negative comments:
-the app would be better if I could select "vegan" instead of "vegetarian." When I look at foods recommended to fulfill my needs, eggs and milk are often there. Great for vegetarians, not good for vegans.
-even though I've set all of the foods for added to "public," I can only find them under my foods and not by searching all foods. This doesn't matter much, except for when I'm trying to add foods to a past day--when I'm viewing my foods, the only option is to "eat" it, aka add it to today's diary. I need my foods to either show up within all foods, or have an option to add them to past days.
I have wanted an app like this since apps became a thing in the world. I don't care about calories, but nutrition is my #1 priority. The food diary is amazing for this, but it does need improvement desperately. There are items I eat that I can't find, such as goat's milk yogurt. The user uploaded content is the only thing I can find for such items, but because they are derived from the nutrition label on the product it doesn't include any of the micronutrients that may be present in the food. This poses a problem because it may look like you're deficient in micronutrients, even though you're not. There needs to be a full time person that can research individual products and upload the actual nutritional profile for them, not just the label. If this became a priority it would definitely be the #1 food app on the market. Please spend the time to research items that only have limited nutrition labels and you have a serious winner.
Love the look of the App and quick/ helpful customer service!
I really like the Wholesome app and would recommend it to anyone looking to track their calorie/nutrition goals for three reasons:
1) I really like being able to click on a picture of a food and then seeing the nutrition facts and the benefits of each food (customized to your needs via what you entered)- it helps me stay motivated to eat healthier because I can see what good things fruits, veggies, grains, nuts, and seeds are doing to help keep my body healthy!
2) The pictures of the foods are also aesthetically pleasing and I like seeing what foods I ate and the quantities of them rather than just words like other diet apps. Plus, you can add and upload pictures of other foods not in the database and add your own recipes in the same fashion which I like as well.
3)I got a quick and helpful response when I needed to find my password again (after losing it and some other issues) and I was able to get back to using the app with all my features in a short time after sending a help-email! (Thank you Jessica from the Wholesome team :))
