    How do people keep track of their cals consumed that day?? I have switched to using and iphone app..

    Anyone use one for calorie counting and weight management? I have just purchased one, it helps keeps a running total of cals consumed that day and have discovered how inadequat this method was :eek: I was going way over, how do other people kep a running total? This app also adjusts my BMI according to weight and how many cals I should be consuming based on height BMI etc so I don't have to adjust it just does it... one draw back is that I would love it if the cals of foods were listed like in the books? e.g. meat fish and some products?? I am gonna think about getting my other half to write an app for this, as he has a mac etc..

    I can't believe I just used to keep a total in my head... no wonder I don't get anywhere...:cry: :sigh:

    I have a food and nutition app however I don't think it is as good as some of the apps mentioned here. It still keeps track though and in the past I just guessed :confused: and I wonder why I hadn't made any progress!!!

    I use Nutri check's online food diary, it's fantastic! It's not free, but well worth the money in my eyes! You can get it on your iphone too xx

    Lost 10 stones on LL/Exante a couple of years ago, have regained several stone so giving WW a go.
    I have tap and track. It is fab. You can set it according to how many lbs you want to lose/ gain a week or if you want to maintain and can also adjust calories up or down. Database isn't bad but o add all my own recipes and food brands to the database.

    It's not an iphone app but I love Perfect Diet Tracker. It was suggested by KD and there's a thread in the Cambridge 1000-Maintenance forum about it. It is software so you need to load it on your computer but its' only a one off charge of £35.
