it would be nice if it counted net carbs vs total carbs. Also more measurement options would be nice as well. Obviously I like the app but not quite sure exactly worth payin for given rhe extremely limited database and rhe fact it pops up a crash message every time I want to search for a new food. i like that i can input my own food and nutrtional info. fix these issues and i can stop looking for another app to do the same thing

Thanks for your review. I have passed your feedback to the team. At present that app is mainly used in the UK and other countries where net carbs are not used in diabetes management. Hence why they are not included at this time. If you have any further feedback please get in touch with us at support@carbsandcals.helpscoutapp.com

Thought this app was good to start with but I don't think the database of foods is that extensive or accurate. They have Tesco foods but if you compare the nutritional information to Tesco website it's different. Most barcodes I've scanned don't come up with a match. I'm just manually inputting items to My Foods which defeats the point it should be easy. Have subscribed for a year as it was cheaper but now stuck with it and won't be renewing next year.

I am a diabetes dietitian in South Africa & I use this app daily to teach my patients how to count their carbs for better blood glucose management. I love the little blood drops at the bottom of each picture indicating the impact it may have on glucose levels. My patients love it ,as it enables them to visualise the plate of food, especially when out, thereby helping with correct insulin dosing decisions. Also a great way to count the cals for those trying to manage their weight. A must have!
