What does everyone like? I’ve been using MyFitnessPal. Also used CarbManager. Looking to purchase a subscription but would like to hear ideas of better apps if they are out there first.

I tried some others awhile back, but found pal to be all that I needed.. I really only use it when I need to fine tune my diet.. I dont pay, just use it because of the ease of tracking. It's not 100% accurate, but it'll get u get u close enough.. Ive tried to some of its other free functions but found those to be a waste of my time..

Yea it helps me keep track of how many carbs are lurking in sauces and other stuff I don’t anticipate that might throw me off. Also keeping track of the sugar is nice as well.

I’m down 7 lbs in 10 days so diet is on point, just wanted to make sure there wasn’t an app that was better than the one I was using.

Damn sauces and gravies are the devil!! Lol
Good job on ur diet, I'm just starting one myself. I'll be tracking on pal to get me conscious about my intake again. Not that I've eaten bad, but dad life sometime feeds me too much. I'll get to mentally calculating the food I ate for the day and be at 5000+ calories... smdh.. Anyway I'll be paying attention to this thread.. lol

Yea bro it’s absurd how many carbs are stuck in a tsp of sauce. I don’t understand why ppl struggle so much with diet. It’s just about discipline and consuming less calories than your body metabolizes. Losing weight is not rocket science.

I came off TRT and started taking all kinds of fertility drugs to try and get my wife pregnant. When I looked up 6 months later I’d gained 30 lbs. The good news is I know how to lose weight and manipulate macros so it’ll all be off in a month. Just discipline.

I’ve tried several, paid for a couple and you really can’t beat all the things MyFitnessPal offers. The database of food is so infinite. The only thing is that it’s off on how it calculates your calories in and out. The best thing to do is to calculate you target daily calories outside the app (because most calculators factor your average training) and only check against that number. The macros tracking and log ms are awesome.
