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.
Low Carb Diets are given credit for increasing energy, reducing cravings for sweets, better mental concentration, weight loss and normalizing “mood swings” common with rapid changes in sugar levels just to name a few.
There is no doubt that each of us has a different level of carbohydrate tolerance. As we age, our carbohydrate tolerance often erodes and we have a greater blood glucose response to carbohydrate. It is imperative for us to be aware of what we are eating so we can make the proper choices for our diet. myCarb Counter was created to be part of your dietary support plan to give you the information and tracking necessary for you to be confident in your daily activity.
The Database contains over 2300 individual food items, and has the ability for you to add your own if you have a unique food style. Complex meals can be added and saved to your “favorites” page for quick reference going forward. The list can be scrolled through or filtered to allow you to answer your carb question quickly.
Convenient feedback button to report on additional features you would like to see or any operations compatibility issue you may be having.
Please note that at this time the program has been tested on Android 2.2 to 4.0.4 on a wide variety of devices with no issues.

Please check the version of your android phone OS before downloading. You must be running AT LEAST version 2.1 or better for this app to work on your phone. It will also work on version 3.0, but it won't be terribly pretty. Working on that, I may need to write a tablet-specific version. Write me if you would like to see that.
Please let me know of any issues ASAP BEFORE posting negative comments and I will correct them. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the screen you were on and a description of the issue.

Weight Is Managed, Not Cured!
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.
A special thanks to the men and women at the U.S. Department of Agriculture for doing the hard work of collecting the nutrition information and assembling it into a database for the benefit of us all. The nutrition information used in this application comes from the following source:

- Quick Add feature for adding carbs counts if you already know the carbohydrates value
Carbohydrates, fat and protein are the basic building blocks of the foods we eat. Carbohydrates come in many forms. Sugars and starches are forms of carbohydrates. Examples of foods that are high in carbohydrates counts include breads, pasta and cereal.
Counting carbs is important to those on high-protein, low carb diets like the the Atkins diet. The basic premise of these diets is that we eat too many carbs and that we should instead eat high protein foods.
Some research suggests that people with diabetes have a strong incentive to count carbs: when combined with exercise, a low carb diet might promote weight loss and reduce cardiovascular risk factors associated with diabetes.
