Android apps food journal 2012
Probably a pipe-dream, as I don’t think one exists with everything I want… But I am looking for a food journal with the following characteristics:
database of foods(and/or online lookup from USDA or other source, with the values for the meal stored locally)
barcode scanner for store-bought foods
Daily/weekly/monthly totals for Fat, carbs, protein.
Nice to have:
Possibility of tracking other nutrient values or going more granular
Weight tracking per day
Weight differential from the previous day
Bug me constantly about my calories
Give me unwanted nutritional advice (i.e. Lighting my fat intake up in red and giving me stupid warnings)
I use the Livestrong site – MyPlate is an app you can use to log food, exercise and even water intake. You can chat with friends, set goals, and they send lots of tips and ideas. I use the free version and it has a smart phone app as well. I like that you can make your own running or walking routes and it will calculate not only the miles, but calories burned due to hills, etc. I just started using MyFitnessPal as well and I really like it!! I love that it lets me know where I am for protein, carbs and fat grams too! I use myfitnesspal. I love it. It even tracks your protein, carbs, salts, fats, etc. It is easy to use and has a bar code scanner if you can’t find your food item in the list.
