YES. This is an amazing app with a huge food database. I originally bought the Livestrong app (which is also amazing and I used to swear by this) but just discovered myfitnesspal.... it's the same thing except it's free, and you don't need an internet connection to use it, it's all available offline.myfitnesspal is amazing! you create a profile and based on how much you wanna lose/gain it will present you with your calorie goal. you just log what you ate for breakfast lunch dinner snacks and you can log any exercise you did its a great free app!
Lose It has had a couple of recent database updates. You can also create and enter food manually.Lose It.
Had to enter a lot of food items up front. The database was weak when I started using it. Not sure if it has improved now. But it wouldn't matter.
Once the food and exercise data was in, I was able to reuse those items...sometimes entire meals. Became very easy...less than 5 minutes per meal...sometimes seconds.
Need to stay with it religiously. Enter everything. I lost 30 lbs and won a "biggest loser" contest at work. Hmmm. not sure the contest was about weight though.
I love MyFitnessPal . It's free. Pretty straightforward. You can enter food on the website, or on your iphone and it will sync. If you don't have an internet connection, you can enter food offline and it will sync when you connect.but just discovered myfitnesspal.... it's the same thing except it's free, and you don't need an internet connection to use it, it's all available offline.
mynetdiary.com is excellent and has an iPad version in addition to iPhone and a web based interface too.I've been a paid user of mynetdiary.com and their iPhone app. It's pretty good but I don't love it. Based on the comments above I'm thinking Lose It may be a better bet.
