Simple and doesn't ask you to buy it! For me, this app is better than myfitnesspal. The latter app feels to difficult to navigate and functions that should be forefront (like displaying macros and not just calories) take too long to accomplish. That is where fatsecret shines; it's intuitive design and simplicity make it perfect for people who want to gain muscle or lose weight. Oh, and it won't ask you to buy it every five seconds! On another note, I know this review seems a little well rehearsed, but I promise I'm a person and I like the app!
It does everything! Been using couple months now. Keeps count of each day's *total* carbs, protein, fat, makes a ratio chart, breaks down each meal, and more details that I don't use. For free! Foods are easy to find or add. Love the weight chart. I can log on at another device and still easy to use. I'm doing HCG 2.0 diet and I really appreciate this app.
Very useful for running totals Good app easy to use. But still misses out foods/brands that are commonplace. So you have to calc yourself sometimes. Dont expect bells and whistles when u hit your target weight tho. Doesnt offer advice or trigger new info at this point.
Great and best database But missing one star because it doesn't count down how many of each macro you have left for the day. It helps you how many total calories which ok, but no macros breakdown. I have to look up in my notes app how much of each macro I'm allowed and then look at how much I've eaten and then subtract. Unnecessary if they could only add that feature such as: You have 24g protein left, 132g carbs left, -31g fat (went over). Etc
This is a good app PROS This app calculates NET CARBS, most other apps dont. The barcode reader makes most entries quick. The journal feature on the weight tracker allows me to enter stuff like BG and ketostix results. CONS Entering multi serving homemade recipes is a nightmare. The database can sometimes be wrong. Sometimes the barcode brings up a wrong brand name or product. OVERALL I like this app better than it's competitors, and I'll continue to use it, but I wish they would simplify homemade recipe entry.
MFP convert I used another app for years and love this one so much more. It doesn't have the fancy look of the other, but it also doesn't have i advertising. It's not as social, which is fine, but had a lot of features that other apps make you pay for.
This update greatly improves the functionality of the diet weight tracker.
