If you’re on a diet plan or simply looking for a way to track your calories consumption and weight loss, there is an app for that.
MyNetDiary, which is an online diet log service has an iPad app waiting for you on the App Store. Their app is a very good way for diet planning, management, and food tracking. It’s called MyNetDiary HD.
The MyNetDiary app is a one-stop diet solution. It offers a very large foods database letting you enter your foods with only a few taps, and making diet tracking fun.
The app is very easy to use. The user interface provides multiple tabs for you to find all the information needed according to your diet plan. You can create a plan and track whatever nutrients you want in addition to fats, proteins and carbs. It allows you to set a daily percentage to determine a macro-nutrient plan. You can track your weight, calories, and carbs intake. At the end of every day, the app will give advice based on what you did wrong each day.
The iPad’s large touchscreen coupled with MyNetDiary’s unique searching capability is very good for quick entry of foods. If you’re a member of MyNetDiary’s online service, the app automatically syncs to your online account.
The app comes loaded with many features. If you would like more control over your diet, you can override calories with your doctor recommendations, and adjust macro-nutrient balance preferences. It’s very helpful for low-carb and low-fat diets.
If you often eat the same food and ingredients together, you can turn them into a “custom recipe” via the app. The app keeps a food score, which is a simple way to evaluate nutrition facts and make healthy food choices.
You can also use daily notes to keep track of your mood, thoughts, hunger, sleep. In addition, you can make quick text notes about vitamins and medications so that you can register your reactions. Get ready to track blood pressure, hours of sleep, daily steps, and more.
Finally, the app offers a set of charts, including nutrient and measurement charts that support charting weights, calories, or calorie percentages.
What we liked: Easy to use. Lots of good data available to you.
What we didn’t like: The app does not provide a way to track custom exercises at this point. Hopefully, this feature becomes available in a future update.
To buy or not to buy: If you’re looking for a way to keep track of a diet plan, monitor your calories, manage your weight and the food you eat, this is a good option for your iPad.
