My favorite tracking app! Only thing keeping it from 5 stars is that I can't enter recipes (on my android) that allow me to select a portion of recipe as my serving, it adds the entire recipe to your meal. I have to go use other apps to figure out my serving info and that's just inconvenient! I hope they update this for android users!
Excellent app. Has helped me lose 5kg weight in six months. And without doing any exercise. I bought a machine to measure fat% and muscle% after the first month to see if I was just losing water or losing muscle. It has shown that in last five months I gained 1kg muscle and lost 5kg fat (I was not tracking fat/muscle for the first 1kg weight I lost). Also interesting is that my blood tests prior to using app showed a moderately high cholesterol level. I noticed you could track cholesterol and saturated fat intake on app. And by clicking on cholesterol in nutrients section you can see all the foods you ate and how much cholesterol they added. So I started reducing shrimps, calamaris and egg containg foods and increasing fish and beans/pulses. Now my cholesterol is half what it was. Now I am happy with my weight and my food intake is a much better balance, I continue to use the app to maintain a healthy weight and food intake. Thanks very much to the developers!
Using this app several years ago I lost 63 pounds but unfortunately I had to stop dieting due to the lack of time because I was taking care of my dying sister who passed January 2017. I just recently restarted my diet so I will see how it goes the second time around.
The app is great. I'd be willing to pay for some features. But they need to work on the widget. For some reason, when I added it, the day it defaulted to was over a year ago. There is no way from the widget to look at today without scrolling a day at a time. NOBODY has time for that. So the widget is useless to me. The other issue the app has is since I allowed it to sync with Google Fit, I can no longer add exercise through the website. That's just stupid.
Love it. I didn't want to pay 50 give a year for mfp for features that weren't worth it. Fstsecret has 90% of those features for free. Id love to support the app though, I haven't seen a way to buy a "paid" version for like 10 or 15 bucks. Great features, great catalog of food, allows me to easily track the macros I want for keto. I love it
I really like this app. I used myfitnesspal previously which was very effective for me, but I got tired of the ads and slow slow app. FatSecret works great. I was concerned about the smaller food database, but it's been great. Occasionally something that I scan is missing, but then it's quite easy to add. The app is lean and fast and so much more pleasant to use. There are some weird idiosyncrasies with the app that I find annoying, but I've always been able to find ways to work around them. Also, the recommended calorie intake seems high in this app, but it's easy to change. All in all, I've converted to FatSecret and am not looking back!
- Now you can easily see when other FatSecret users interact with you through comments, supports or follow requests, plus you can find out about new features in the app
