Most apps count calories and track the three macronutrients: fat, protein, and carbohydrates.
Low-carb, ketogenic, and Atkins dieters are mainly interested in tracking their "net" carbohydrate intake. This means that all carbohydrates that do not impact blood sugar need to be subtracted from the total carbohydrates. This app automatically calculates the "net carbs" by subtracting dietary fibers and sugar alcohols.
Use this app to:
Search for common foods and automatically calculate the "net carb" count, or simply add your own entries.
Track your carbohydrate intake in your daily journal.
Trend your progress over a period of a week or several months to see your improvement over time.
Use the journal history to see what you consumed on a previous day.

2000+ food items are available in the default food database. You can also add, import, and export your own food data.
The default food data is taken from the Nederlands Voedingsstoffenbestand (NEVO), the Dutch Food Composition Database (NEVO-online version 2013/4.0, RIVM, Bilthoven).
Food names from the NEVO database can be switched between Dutch and English.
You can add your own food data. A simple mechanism is also provided to export and import food data from the clipboard.
I developed this app because I have Type 1 Diabetes and constantly need to count how much carbohydrates I eat.
JACC uses a local copy of the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference to provide basic nutrient data for 8463 foods. You choose the food and serving information, and JACC calculates the following information for your selection: Calories, total fat, saturated fat, polyunsaturated fat, monounsaturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, total carbohydrate, dietary fiber, sugars, and protein.
Try it out and see what you think. If you really like something, or really don't, feel free to leave a comment. And remember, if you're not using Green Icon Software, you're not using JACC.
Search order matters. For example, "bread banana" yields slightly different results than "banana bread". If you don't find the food that you are expecting, try changing the order of your search terms. This will hopefully be fixed in a future release.

UUP weight = 30g.
UUP quantity = 5
UUP description = cookies
The application will quickly calculate how many units/servings (u/s) equals the multiples of 5 cookies:
1 cookie = 0.4 u/s
2 cookies = 0.8 u/s
3 cookies = 1.2 u/s
6 cookies = 2.4 u/s
+ Always consider the nutritional information of food, for more detail refer to the nutritional information for each food.
+ ¡¡¡ Be careful with your input data at foods, is the basis for calculations!!!
+ This application performs rounding in calculations:

★ Customer Feedback about Carbs & Cals ★
“Perfect in every way! Very, very helpful and professional!!”
“This book has been life-changing for my son & husband, both of whom are diabetic.”
“Helped me realize how the portion sizes I was eating were far too large.”
“This is brilliant for anyone who needs to count their Carbs and Calories!”
“A must for diabetics.”
“Very useful for losing weight.”
“Well worth the purchase price - I can see me referring to this quite often.”

“Guesstimates are often way out, so this is a huge help.”
The Slow-Carb Diet® App is a complement to The 4-Hour Body® App that makes it easy for you to visually track your Slow-Carb Diet® by taking quick photos of your meals.
This simple photo diet tracking app lets you take a quick two-tap snapshot of your meal before opening your mouth. Even without a prescribed diet, this awareness alone will result in fat-loss.
Research has confirmed that people who use food diaries lose three times as much weight as those who don't. But food diaries require time-consuming entries often written long after eating. Also, according to researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, taking photographs of meals prior to eating is more effective than food diaries. The photographs acted as an instantaneous intervention and forced the subjects to consider their choice before the damage was done. One participant of this so-called "flash diet" said: "I was less likely to have a jumbo bag of M&Ms. It curbed my choices. It didn't alter them completely, but who wants to take a photo of a jumbo bag of M&Ms?"
"The fastest way to correct a behavior is to be aware of it in real time, not after the fact." --Tim Ferriss
Download this free app now and start losing fat by tracking your Slow-Carb Diet® meals and keeping record of your Four Hour Chef meals.

☆ Set up reminders so you won't forget to take photos
☆ Share your meals on Facebook and Twitter to use social accountability to your benefit

The key to achieving weight goals is to keep track of your calories and, more importantly, the distribution in macro nutrients.
Macros will help you do just that! This calorie counter focuses on macros (as the name suggests!) more than just calories - because it is important!!
Are you doing carb cycling? "Macros" are great for carb cycling. When you set up your goals, you are able to differentiate between days, so that you can set up your macro goals excactly to your schedule.
***The app features a dynamic database, which learns about your entries. Create a food item once, and the app will remember it for you forever. After you created your food for the first time, it is incredibly quick to look up and add to your food diary.***
Get a instant overview when you open the app, with the easy to decode progressbars which tell you just how much of each macro nutrient you have eaten today, as well as your progress in weight change.
Look at your food diary for the past days, and see how you keep on track with beautiful looking graphs.
It works by entering the amount you will eat of a chosen food (in grams), together with a carbs-per-unit value (I:C ratio).
Foods can be added and always saved together with the carbs-per-unit value for the next time you start the application. Three different presets of you I:C ratio can be saved as well.
* Calculating how much food you should eat, provided the carbs-per-unit value and how many units of insulin that you are going to take.
* Calculating a new carbs-per-unit value, provided the food you ate and the amount of insulin you took to get a good blood glucose value.
* Saving presets for carbs-per-unit value, for those who have a different ratio for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
This app is mainly focused to persons with type 1 insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus ("juvenile diabetes"), to help optimizing insulin dosage and get great blood glucose numbers; but it might work well for people with type 2 diabetes as well.
