Helps you understand and track your calorie intake and help you reach your health and fitness goals. This app gives you an in-depth daily analysis of your eating habits, a daily breakdown of fat, protein and carbohydrates in your diet, and broader analysis on progress and goal setting.

DISCLAIMER: These food tracking apps are helpful to get the ball rolling in educating yourself on eating a balanced diet and being more mindful of what you eat, BUT they should only be used as a springboard for creating a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. Tracking your food forever should not be a goal! Apps like this can create issues like overthinking food, adding a layer of stress to eating, and can even lead to eating disorders. Use these apps with a grain of salt and know that the best diet for you may not match what an app tells you. Calories are not everything! Focus on how your diet makes you feel and make adjustments based on that more broadly. Restricting yourself a lot is not sustainable and undereating can create new health issues.
