Good interface, but several issues 3/5
The idea and setup for this app is great, and the premium version’s features make it worth the purchase. However, it has a number of unresolved kinks and bugs. There is no section for entering and storing recipes in this app, so I open My Fitness Pal to create recipes, get the calorie counts and macros, and then enter them into My Diet Coach- incredibly time-consuming relative to what it could be if My Diet Coach were to have the same recipe-processing feature as MFP. In general, the MDC food database could also stand to grow quite a bit- MFP’s is much more extensive.
The MDC food diary also counts calories inaccurately. For some reason, it gradually starts to reduce the calorie counts of entries over time, after they are entered repeatedly. It’s been doing this the entirety of the year+ I have had this app, and it needs to be fixed. The entry in the diary will one day just appear with one calorie subtracted from its original count, and continue to subtract, requiring me to manually correct it, assuming I notice (e.g. 0.25c shredded cheese at 110 cal, after a few days will start showing up as 109 cal, then 108 the next day, and so on). I have emailed the app’s support contact about this, with no response.
Finally, I cannot seem to delete photo thumbnails from my “Motivation” section. I have deleted all the pictures, but they still show up as thumbnails on the “Photos” page- then cannot be clicked on to zoom, since they are actually deleted. It would be nice to get the “Photos” page de-cluttered so that I can start over with new photos, and only see the thumbnails of the photos that are actually there.
I love this app. Is giving me exactly what I want! Thank you

Great way to journal eating and nutrients
Just started using . I really like it. It feels more personal. 5/5
I like it!
Good Motivator 4/5
I’ve used this app for about two months now and really like it. I have the non-pro version, which works for where I am in my health journey. I really like dressing the avatar and imagining myself getting to wear similar clothes as I lose more fat/gain more muscle — it’s super motivating. My only complaint is I’ll get notifications saying I haven’t opened the app in x days, which is frustrating because I use the app several times a day. So that’s something for the developers to look into.
Setting me up for success 5/5
By Mrs Bearded Rican
This app has been easy to use and keeps me accountable for my food intake. Seeing a visual representation of the calories I’ve consumed helps me to plan each meal to ensure I stay within my calorie bank for the day. I also love the challenge! Awesome app!
Help me lose 5IB in a week! 5/5
This is an awesome app that’s helped me eat healthier!
I love this app 5/5
I love this app it helps me lose weight in fun ways I can watch my avatar thin out with me in 3 week I lost 13lb. I also find handy the scan feature you scan your food or drink and it tells you how many calories it is and how much to work off . This app also includes motivation pictures and motivational quotes which at times help a lot. I think you should give it a go and you will be happy with your improvements.
Great app! 5/5
This app makes losing weight more fun.
Like no other 5/5
I love the avatar & wardrobe!! I love the visuals for accomplishing goals like drinking water, managing portions. This app makes following a plan much more enjoyable than others I have tried. It leaves the food plan up to me as it lets me see how I’m doing. Excellent and highly motivating... I want new clothes for my avatar 😁
I love it!!! 5/5

I love it!!!
This app is awesome 5/5
The reminders are so helpful !
Good but needs work 3/5
If u quick add a food, the calories register, but the nutritional info doesn't. So, when you check your nutritional summary for the day, it is way off. Also, i can't find any place to track water other than my water challenge. If I choose a different challenge, I don't know how I'll track water. Also, logging a big glass of herbal, zero calorie tea doesn't affect what it thinks my fluid intake is. Finally, if you logged a food eaten and forgot to classify that food as a meal or give it a name before you push done, it won't let you go back in to add it as a meal or give it a name. Very frustrating and ruins the benefit of the nutritional summary.
Doesn’t have calorie info for many of the foods and brands I eat whereas MyFitnessPal does. Also should be able to change the home screen so you don’t have to look at those awful avatars.
Love this App! 5/5
I am on week two of my weight loss program and this app has been invaluable! I am able to really hone-in on what I eat and I love the reminders to drink more water and to exercise...I decided to upgrade ($30.00 for the year) for the added features such as keeping track of my nutritional values.
Great app 5/5
The reminder to drink water is great.

For me this app has helped quite a lot. I like having the chart that shows progress plus I love seeing the avatar getting slimmer. There are numerous tools to help you keep on track. It’s perfect for me.

Love how it reminds you daily to keep going and how it tracks your daily food intake
Great App - Awful Clothes 4/5
I love a great food diary app, and this one has to be one of my favorites! It’s very inspirational and it does its job fairly well. I really enjoy the idea of having an avatar that loses weight as I do, but I find myself agreeing with many of the other reviews on here... The clothes you receive for your avatar as a reward for logging food, overcoming cravings, etc. are awful! Most of them are baggy, outdated, and don’t fit the avatar at all. To the developers — I think it would be much better if the system gave you a whole outfit (that you still have the option to mix and match) as you level up, with the outfit actually fitting the avatar with a more modern look. It might also be nice to give users the opportunity to pick their own style (minimalist, comfy, bohemian, hip, etc.), and provide clothes that match their style!
In the end, it’s a great app with a lot of useful tools, especially that panic button.
Calorie counter 5/5
Love this app!!
Easy fun to use app 5/5
By Loren b,
I enjoy using this app on my weight loss journey. Only two improvements I would recommend is to have all restaurants foods listed. At times there are multiple submissions for singular dish each one a little different. Overall I really enjoy using it
It’s Okay at first 4/5
By David S. Wenz
I rarely write apps unless they got a flaw that I think other people might be annoyed towards. I can’t erase anything I place as a meal in my Diary.
Fantastic app 5/5
This app is fantastic. I love how you earn new things for your wardrobe as you log. It makes me more accountable Bc I’ll be like i really need that new outfit.

Excellent App!! 5/5
By Moaney Kids❄️
I love the fact that when you journal, exercise, and add tips to your app, you earn rewards in the form of clothing, it's very inspiring!!
Wonderful app. Only issue is repeat food. Need better way to go back to another day or meal.
Good app 5/5
I like this app because I have it wherever I go and can keep track of food/exercise intake. There is a free app and a subscription. Both are easy to use.
So motivating! 5/5
Easy to track, well put together and motivating. Counting calories this way is something I could easily manage as a life habit. Quick, simple and inexpensive to track.
The best! 5/5
I love it and it has a lot of cool features!
Nice Application 5/5
By Just-Ice No Soda
This is a great app. It keeps you motivated with a game like twist. I love cloths, even virtual clothing so I visit my app almost everyday. Other apps no matter how good, I get bored or busy and forget for weeks to make logs.
So far so good 5/5
Just started working with the app. Was hoping that connecting to Fitbit app would link all of the features. Guess not 😐
A fun tool 4/5
My Diet Coach is a fun tool
Like it! Part 1 3/5
Like the app, it’s easy to use. I gave it 3 stars because there seems to be a lot of unnecessary extra clicks to get to what you want. I am specifically talking about when adding food items. Just let me add them I can always delete them later if it wasn’t something I actually ate. Maybe there’s a way around it. In any case I like it enough to keep using it as it works well with Apple Health and is an all inclusive app. I will write again in a few months. Good job!
Fun to Use and Easy to Follow 5/5
I especially like the barcode scanner. It makes it easy to record calories accurately.
Great app! 4/5
This is great for motivation and keeping track of weight loss goals. I do not pay for this app though so I haven’t experienced the full app.

It’s so easy I love I.t
