Very Nice app BUT 4/5
This app really is the best out there for counting carbs. The only problem is its integration with Apple Health. It will actually add the same information to the health program two or three times making Apple health totally useless.
Good list of exiting foods 5/5
I used the Atkins app but the list of restaurants and foods were very limited. Also used MyFittnessPal which is a good app but the charge to upgrade to the carb counter. While Carb Manager does charge for some of its upgrades its the most complete off the apps I tried, which will more than likely convince me to upgrade to the more useful tools.
Couple of flaws but overall ok. 3/5
I have had this app and upgraded for about two weeks. It is overall pretty easy to use. Flaw #1 when entering your macros there is a bug that will set the number of calories to 358. If you try to change this number it crashes unless you add a 1 in front to make it 1358 then edit. Flaw #2 manually entering recipes is a PIA. I love the upload button for websites but I haven’t found that you can edit what you actually put in the meal/substituting.
Loved it until it stopped letting me add food to track my macros 1/5
All was great until yesterday evening when it says I have to pay to use it. Figure I maxed out logins for day but new day try to add dinner last night still won’t let me unless I pay. It’s either free or not. SO DISAPPOINTED.
Very helpful 5/5
Great for knowing exactly how many carbs one is consuming. Easy to use.
Good but broken, prepare for the upsell pop ups 2/5
It’s a good app but it’s broken. They try to get you to upgrade if you do 12 logs in one day. I frequently only have 4, 5 or six in a day and it keeps telling me I can’t enter another one because I already have 12 logs for the day.
Great app for all diets 5/5
This app is user friendly. It has settings for several different diets. You just choose your specific needs and it calculates your daily goals. Finding and adding foods is easy. Has a weight tracker and can be used with fitness devices. It has so much more than what I am mentioning. I just chose my favorites. This app has helped me completely change my lifestyle.
I love this tool for monitoring what I eat. 5/5
By Looking to pass!
I would not be able to keep track of carbs and manage sugar intake without the info and discipline of carb mgr. It is invaluable for maintaining the self- discipline I need as a human being; always wanting greater satisfaction. When I go through the process of grabbing the phone and thinking though my day to record intake, I am reminded or rewarded with the satisfaction of seeing my progress instead of eating it. And, eating more is just its never enough
My Favorite App of all time! 5/5
I, like most folks I suppose, rate an app based on its usefulness, benefits and ease of use. The Carb Manager team has truly hit the ball out of the park with this one! Functionality is fabulous and primarily intuitive which makes it a pleasure to use. Have recently become a proud Premium Member and lovin’ it. Thanks for doing such a great job team!
Great app 5/5
Very easy to use. Tracks everything I want, plus, if you go pro you get recipes and help. I love it ‘
12 items per day in free app. 3/5
You know I live in Europe and as it is I have to manually add everything I eat because 90% of the items I scan are not in your system. Then I get blocked after adding 12 items for the day and am prompted to pay $39 a year for the privilege of adding more than 12 items per day - that I will still have to do manually??? Rip off.
Exactly what you need for keto 5/5
I purchased a different keto app and it was worthless; basically a food diary that tracks fat, protein and carbs. But that’s all it did. The food scanner was worthless and 90% of the food I ate had to be entered manually. Just a lot of work for very little value.
This app is the complete opposite. Very intuitive, tons of food in the database, bar code scanning that’s accurate, and best of all, a complete and detailed breakdown of both macro and micro nutrients. I literally know exactly what I put in my body. Great app for a ketogenic diet.
Too glitchy to use 2/5
I purchased premium right away to assist me with my Keto diet and tracking my macros. This app wouldn’t save my calorie goal with determined my allotted net carbs. It kept defaulting to a higher number which messed up my daily tracking. Totally bummed I wasted my money. The app had potential. I need something relatable for my dietician and for me.
Saved me 5/5
I’ve been very sick I’ve struggled with CFS fibromyalgia EBV and all kinds of crazy results high cholesterol high sed rate etc etc. I knew I had to change my diet but where to start. I found this app!!! Love it saved me got me up and running on keto diet in one day!
I feel like I know so much already! And in ketosis after four days with the help of this app!!
Great App 5/5
Easy to use and track macros
So far so goo 4/5
Does a great job of pricing the information I am looking for from my meals. However, as a frequent use of My Fitness Pal, there are several features lacking that can be frustration. Copying and pasting previous days meals, seems like it should exists, I can’t figure out how to do it. Adding multiple foods at a time to meals, can’t understand how this does not exist. The data base of foods is lacking and the barcode scan isn’t as good
Love it 4/5
It does everything I need, easy to keep a check on your daily carbs and gives all kinds of chart that you might need... giving one less star as they could add the following :
1. way to export directly in pdf on your phone instead of email
2. way to see which foods contributed to protien or fat or carbs in the entire day. Right now you have to click on individual items to see their contribution.
Great app...if you pay for it 2/5
By Faulk Yourself
This app has so many capabilities, but it’s very limited if you don’t pay for premium. They allow you “log” 12 items a day for free. What they really mean, is that you can “search” 12 items a day for free. I logged two items for breakfast and was using the app to search for something I could eat a restaurant, and it blocked me from being able to choose one unless I paid for it because I had already searched 10 items.
Looks good 4/5
I have reviewed few of carb counting apps, this one looks best so I have decided to try it. I will adjust ratings as I get to know it better
I love this app 5/5
This app has made it so much easier to track my macros, my recipe and my meals. I am tracking my weight, blood sugar and ketones and my measurements. I love the social aspect as well. Good job. I definetly recommend!
Type 2 diabetes 4/5
I was told I was at risk for type 2 diabetes, so I knew I had to do something, but I thought, if I haven't figured it out by now how am I going to do it? I decided to try this app for guidance and it's been a week, including Thanksgiving, and I lost 4 lbs. I am still learning, but there is so much I don't understand, like I have know idea what a diabetic carb is! Is it good or bad? So I do wish for more info. Also my Dr said to eat up to 45 carbs A MEAL, but this app encourages 44 carbs for the entire day! So I'm assuming diabetic carbs are different. Despite my lack of education about all this, the app does help me see what foods are good and which are best avoided and what the amount limits are. For that I am grateful.
Love this... 5/5
Tracking is so time consuming but this app makes the process so much easier. I'm very happy with the library of foods and adding new foods is very simple. I wouldn't have gotten into ketosis so quickly without this.
Please please load I breathe I’m hungry recipes
Worry free 5/5
I absolutely adore this app. As someone who has battled an eating disorder and still has high anxiety about food, this app has saved me so much stress. I’m so happy that I found it.
Loved it until... 2/5
By Another Beekeeper
Loved this app until they limited me to just a few entries a day. Each edit is a new entry, so if you want to change from cups to ounces, you’ve used two entries.
Then I find out there’s a monthly fee to use it the way it should work. Not happening. I’d pay a single fee for an app, but I won’t pay for a subscription for an app that doesn’t change monthly. That’s just silly.
Off to try out another carb counter app!
Great Simple to Use 5/5
If you want to focus on tracking carbs this is the best app that I have found. There is not a ton of unnecessary junk to complicate tracking.
Absolutely INCREDIBLE! 5/5
By Wampa Hunter
My wife has been following a keto diet for a few months, and I have been apprehensive about joining her because A.) I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing and B.) I have terrible eating habits that would require too much thought and effort to break, if I’m being totally honest. This app is absolutely worth $39.99 a year for the premium version. It not only helps me keep track of things—I actually ENJOY using the app to keep track. It is incredibly informative. If it were possible, I would give it 10 stars.
Oh, and I’ve lost seven pounds in the past week by paying attention to what I’m putting in my body.
Love the app - keeps me on track 5/5
Would really love it if you offered a short trial of the premium version ❤️
Best Keto/LowCarb App EVER! 5/5
I really mean it, I’ve tried several different apps and this one is perfect. Very specific and easy to use.
Dictating their macros! ☹️ 1/5
By I'm not sheep.
Would not let me set my macros to what I needed. It kept adjusting back to a preset for their determined medical reason!
I was setting it for MY medical reason.
Not smiling 1/5
By wishing for yesterday
Just started to make this new version work, reloaded all my recipes, figured out the charts, thinking okay maybe I can handle this. I am praying you stop updating and...just fix the messes!!! Now I can't get off the home page to use ANY part of this app. It froze up and the little wheel in the middle just keeps spinning!!!! Please make this torture stop!! You have no idea how much I have depended on this app for a long time to help control my diabetes..fix it....different day new problem-now logging food I ate has changed and it won't log fractions-only whole numbers. That whole setup has a new and difficult application. How come every day I find something changed?? STOP SCREWING THIS UP FOR ME !!! No way would I waste money on upgrading..I need an answer..what am I supposed to do ?? It is a new day, and I hung in there to see if kinks were fixed. So far, it seems to do what it should. Hoping nothing changes in the morning🤞. Thanks for responding... 8/25/17...>you just updated this app, and now it is screwed up again..not surprised !!! I have nothing but a blank white screen. Why can you not just leave it alone. It was working fine, and now I have nothing!!!!!! Here is my review update:: you are too freaking late-I deleted it this morning because it was still crashed !!! Nothing zero dead app and I had so much stuff in there I cannot even believe it. I will not reload that app ever again because you will screw it up with another update😡🖕..................11/15/17..just paid for premium-and you erased everything in my history. All my favorites and recipes, EVERYTHING!!! please put it back or refund my money. I wanted to give this app a chance because it is useful, but not if I have to keep starting all over again !!! Help me please.........now it is 11/17/17, and I don’t think you can help me now. I reloaded this app AGAIN with all my info, and I canceled the auto-renewal of my upgrade. I prefer to use the free version. And not go through this again. I have diabetes, so managing all of this is very helpful to me...fav foods, recipes, weight control, and I don’t want to have to reload all this a third time, or waste anymore money...I will not pay for anymore premium. But gee, thanks for responding.
Does what it’s suppose to do 5/5
It helped me keep control of my carbs and works great. Thankful I found this app.
Amazing App! 5/5
Does the job and it’s super easy to use! Helped me change my life. Thanks
Getting going 5/5
If you are new to paleo, KETO or low carb/Atkins diet this app will enhance your learning curve and as you compute your meals and menus it will keep it real and keep you honest. These diets work. They deliver. But getting solid counts of your fat, protein, carbs, calories will help maximize your food choices and learn portions. Completely easy to enter, edit or delete foods as you go. I’ve done this diet in the past....going very well with this app.
Ketogenic Diet 4/5
I used this app for my ket diet. It's pretty good! I am testing it but I have a hard time finding all the products I consume. The company is upgrading constantly most of the products we consume. I wish they would have more Keto products. I am testing it and if It really works I will upgrade my app!
Update ruins app - excellent turn recovery 5/5
By this nickname is taken right?
I have been using this app for several months and I actually love that then I get an update they did the classic movie left to right right to left bottom to top top to bottom nothing of any use just confusion
Now you have to select your meal before you can select your food which sometimes you just wanna count the food before you eat it you're not really looking to add it to any mail this stupid app and I pay for it so be where I want continue to pay for it it's a waste of money took something beautiful and made useless
Every update renders this app complicated and useless, everything has to be done on desktop so what is point of the app except to charge for it! It has gone from great to bad to useless!!! 😡
I have to say I’m very happy to add such a positive review and update my thoughts on this app.
I was contacted by customer support and I gave them a detailed description of the things I liked that had been removed they are in the process of adding them back, they were very caring and responsive and within 24 hours everything was corrected, updated and damage undone! What a refreshing experience in today’s world! I might add if you don’t use the reports the PDF ❤️report that is being added back it is such a wonderful value especially for people with special nutritional needs to be able to track in journal and even share with your doctor such a wonderful review of your daily food habits! And thanks to the carb manager team!!!🙏
Great app! 5/5
I have started Keto and tried several apps. This one seems to be the best to me!
This app used to be great. Had to re-download and used for one day. Tried entering meal info this morning and it won't load. Finding another app.
By Fig 4
This app is a huge help in tracking your foods. My wife & I love it & strongly suggest it!!!
Keto Diet Manager 4/5
By 40 year old grandma
I recently started the “Keto diet” and carb manager has been a huge help with learning to navigate my new diet. The only problem I have is you can’t add home made meals, you have to add every ingredient separately, it would be nice to be able to add that list as a regular item even if it’s only on your profile.
Like the ability to look up & scan foods. Also like that I can customize macros.
Lacks a few things I love 4/5
By Johannah Joy
My Fitness Pal doesn’t truly align with my
Keto goals, however this app does. The only things it truly lacks that I love about MFP are the wide variety of exercises. MFP seems to be super smart with activity and even calculates into your daily calorie goals. This app requires you to manually do a lot more calculating.
Excellent for Starting Keto! 5/5
I am one week in on my Keto diet. My first day I exceeded my goals by double. It stinks but this app has allowed me to look up foods and learn what works best to stay on track. I am only a few days in but I am loving it and feel great already. I plan on using this for a long time.
Love it 5/5
So easy and really helps me keep track
This is not a free app 3/5
I like this app, it works pretty good with a good source of foods. But it is not a free app. It’s not as easy to learn how and what all the settings are on the app. It’s my first one that is just a low carb app. Other apps I have used seems more user friendly and allows you to customize a lot more of your goals. You only get to use the app 12 times in one day and that’s why it’s only 3 stars.
Love this!!!!!! 5/5
Incredible....Best low carb app ever!!!!!
Great App!! 5/5
I initially had some issues after paying to go premium, but I contacted customer service and within 10 minutes they had me fixed and ready to go. I’ve tried several carb trackers, but I really like the layout on this one. It’s easy to navigate and copy meals to another date. Adding recipes is a breeze and it’s just really working for me so far. Thanks again to customer service for the prompt reply!!
Wonderful app! 5/5
I’ve been doing Ketogenic for a few months now and keeping a food diary and carefully following my fat to protein ration is difficult... until I found Carb Manager!! This app works great and makes is very easy to keep track of every macros! The scan option is great and reduced time looking up and logging nutritional information to seconds! I don’t mind paying for something that has made my life so much easier!
Carb Manager is Fantastic! 5/5
I started watching my carb intake and needed an app that would help me track my eating and be easy to use. Carb Manager fits the need. I'm especially pleased that they have restaurant and packaged food designations. I lost 8 lbs the first week! I really needed CM!
Love/ Hate 2/5
Was loving this app. I carb cycle and was glad the free version allowed me to just focus on carbs and could change my goal daily. I was so glad I didn’t have to pay for an app that I would only use a small fraction of. However I was totally wrong, today it won’t let me log, I guess you have to pay if you want to track more than 12 days?
