Community Problems 5/5
This app is good and all but the people in the community are down-bringers and are so self centered. They basically tell me I can’t lose weight and everything is unhealthy for me to try? The community is a piece of trash and i recommend not using it. If your 16 and under really stay away from the community because the people are toxic and dont like us “kids.”
Losing weight made easy 5/5
I enjoy the easy to use meal plans. I don’t have to think about what I’m eating or count calories cuz it’s done for me. A grocery list is even included! I’ve used other weight loss apps before but this one makes it the simplest.
Format is comforting 5/5
By Nichole shoff
This is a strange statement, but after using many apps with the "green to red zone" bars, I found myself eating less and over exercising because I hated seeing the bar slowly inch towards the "red zone". This app is so so easy to use and is set up in a way that makes it so that I want to eat what I need to and so that I want to exercise and drink water to swipe on the cup.
Creating a nutrition and diet app is a very difficult task because many people with eating disorders or people who are just not in a good state of mind may use the apps to feed into their habits. I feel this app in particular could potentially stop someone from falling into worse habits because of the anxiety. I am very pleased with this app and definitely will be letting family and friends know about it.
The perfect weight loss app! 5/5
It Is very easy to use and makes tracking/counting calories simple. I like the break down of fats/carbs/protein too!
Can’t even login account 1/5
Try so many time to login, it keep syncing forever. Doesnt matter I turn off the app and turn it on again
Missing recipe builder 2/5
I’ve had a chance to use the app for a while and consistently, but it’s missing the recipe builder. I’m not usually on my desktop and I cook most of what I eat so I have to use another app to create the recipe then go back to this one and save it as a new food.
The scanner doesn’t always work and I don’t think the subscription is worth it at this time. It’s ok as free.
I love it 5/5
I love this app sooo much it helps me keep track of all my meals
It forces you to log in via Facebook, what if you are not on Facebook? Create a new account and forgets your log info, doesn’t send emails to reset passwords. It’s just crap.
Really Helps 5/5
This app is the best! It's the best way to keep a journal and tracking calories and protein is oh so easy! This app has helped me keep my goals and live healthier.
Love this app 5/5
Great for keeping track of your calories, I use it everyday. I also love how you can just scan the bar code which saves so much time which is one of the many reasons why I’m still using it. I have gained a few pounds since I’ve kept up with my calorie goal each day.
Lacking confidence 3/5
At first I likes this app until the second day using it, it would be nice to add multiple items to the diary with a simple check box by previously enter items or even in search. This feature or lack there of will force me to continue to use MyFitnessPal.
Healthy, Motivational App 4/5
This app allows me to get just what I want. Lots of food information, workout ideas, motivational wallpapers, a community and so much more. Only issue I have is it’s kinda slow with downloads, but that’s my only complaint.
Generally a good app, with minor annoyances. 3/5
I wanted a calorie and fitness tracker, and while the app is good with the prior, it does a poor job with the latter. For some reason, it keeps turning off the fitness tracker at midnight, which means that if I forget to turn it on the moment I wake up, it won’t track my steps.
App support is phenomenal! They were on it immediately. The issue was my camera permissions not the app.
A free app that’s GREAT! I’ve been using it for about 3 weeks. The only issue is the bar code scanner isn’t working. It stays in ‘load’ mode with the blue bar going up and down, but never pulling up the actual scanner. It worked the first week. idk what happened. 5 stars if that issue can be remedied.
Excellent Food Tracking 5/5
I’m at the weight I want to be and this easily used tracker app keeps me honest. It’s a great daily habit that can keep a conscientious person from overindulgence and will help a motivated one to lose weight. The food selection database is good and the scanning abilities are great. It’s rare that I can’t find what I want. The ability to re-select an habitual choice of breakfast is excellent.
I love this app because it’s so easy and fast when keeping up with my calories
Must GET NOW! 5/5
Why are you still reading reviews, Download it asap! cheers to health and wellness
Very helpful 5/5
By DiDi 0
I love how helpful this is. Im trying to lose weight and this is very nice to use when needed to keep track of calorie intake
Ideas to make it better 5/5
I love this app I would track my calories by hand before and this just makes it better and easier. I would love if you had an option to pay yearly not just monthly for the gold plan because if you add that I will defiantly do the gold plan. I would be good if you did like a silver and bronze plan too that have other options. Also you should add a ** drink water remind** where we can have it remind us a few times a day. And it would be cool if we could have friends through the app and see each others calories and support each other because I do this with my mom but we have to go over calories when we’re together because I can’t just add her like a friend. Another idea in the meal prep you should have a weeks worth of recipes when you click that tab and you could change them every week. You could do it for the gold of course. Hope you read this post and get back to me. I really would love to see some of these updates it would make the app better and the pay by year would be perfect not everyone likes having another monthly bill.
Otherwise ideal app for weight control beginners if not for the exercise tracking problem 3/5
Generally, this is a very good app for tracking calorie intake. However, the calorie for exercise does not sync well and disappears all the time. While there is option for manual input, I don’t think as a weight control beginner, I’m able to reach a full level and the manual input for exercises searched might be inflated. Still wish to have a reliable estimation of my exercises. feel quite discouraged and frustrated when seeing calories jump to zero after a long walk or exercise
awesome but needs more updated items 4/5
awesome app with simple and easy to maneuver platform and design. looking forward to more food items..
Best tracker if you use Apple Watch 5/5
After using My Fitness Pal for several years, I’m finally switching. The main reason is this app really gets “active calories”.
MFP still has an easier interface for entering repeated meals, but MyPlates interface is not bad.
I accidentally purchased the Gold membership, but will explore for the next year if it’s worth it - not sure at this point since the free version does so much of what I need.
I love this app! 4/5
This app has been very helpful and is great since it is free. It is very close to other paid apps that I've tried. It lets you add your own food nutrition info if the food is not in the list. I really like than you can scan a bar code and it puts in the information.
An Ok App That Needs Work 3/5
By Old Zig Mac
Tried this out for a while, and overall is a nice app, but needs some work to really shine.
Pluses: pleasing UI, barcode scanner to get nutrition info is a really nice feature.
Cons: not good for tracking calorie burn for workouts, seemingly small database of foods. Poor search capabilities (need to search on company name or food, then scroll through the list to find exact match). No capability to move food item from one meal to another (eg. accidentally enter food under Lunch but should be Snack).
Great program 5/5
Great tracking program. I've used the Web site and app several times through the years. It's a great help.
Definitely not great description of the App when it charges you for the app that does the SAME thing as MyFitnessPal, and then you have to pay monthly just to get what I was WANTING and thought I was paying for.....
I eat6 small meals a day, would be nice to set my own meal times rather than B- L - D.
Saves me and my diet daily! 5/5
By Joiful Noize
Organized and does the job. I hate journaling and recording. This makes it easy.
We love it 5/5
By Damaris McGee
We absolutely love this app! It’s clean, easy to use and integrates with our Apple Watches. We have lost weight when using this app. My plate has helped us to visually be able to see how many calories, fat, carbs and proteins are in the food we consume. We love that you can scan the bar code on the packages of the food you ate, that makes it a lot easier and faster than having to type it in. Thanks for creating such a great app!
Best Tracking App I've used 4/5
By Nana Tet
The calorie tracker has a large library of popular foods & brands. The exercise tracker has more options than other apps I've tried.
The one thing that would complete this app for me, is having it sync with my Fitbit.
Subscription too high 4/5
By Hugs ever
I like the ease of use with this app. But I don’t think it’s worth $10.00 a month. I notice that some of the features don’t work.
Using this is my main tracking tool to look 100lbs 5/5
So far all the features are on point! Especially the community tab- connecting you with people in the same boat or who are further along who can help support you.
2 Star for now for iPad! 2/5
I have this app on my iphone and it syncs very well with my apple watch - however I keep attempting to sync the ipad app and only some of the foods I have created come up. NONE of the data will come over at all; yet I have my watch synced just fine for data on other programs to come from both my watch and iphone. Hopefully they will repair the iPad app to sync like the phone - then I will come back and give a better rating. I love (4 star) the iPhone app however! So if you have an iPhone try it there. They do seem to continue making improvements on that app.
It’s new. Their food database for searching and/scanning products is not as vast as other apps. Makes food logging tedious, which is why I normally quit tracking after a couple months. They have their own quick workout programs which is nice
This is helping me gain weight. It’s great. I love it.
The app stopped automatically subtracting the calories I’ve burned that my Health app on my iPhone has already tracked so it says I’ve burned 0 calories everyday for two weeks. What can I do to fix this?
I’ve tried other apps but I always come back to this one because it’s simple and uncluttered. However there are a few annoying issues.
The food search is really sensitive. If I type in “Churchs chicken original thigh” it will only bring up various grilled chicken breast, baked chicken thigh, etc but not what I’m searching for. If I type in “church’s chicken original thigh” it will bring up exactly what I want. An apostrophe shouldn’t make that much of a difference.
Also Track My Activity keeps turning off for me and I have to go back into the preferences every few days and turn it back on if I’d like to see it.
Great way to keep track 4/5
MyPlate is a great way to keep track of your diet and gives you free exercising lessons! Gain or lose weight, it doesn’t matter because this app will make sure you accomplish that
This app is legit and awesome 5/5
Soo I'm gonna be playing college football soon an I needed to gain weight so I tried this app...before I used the app like 2weeks ago I weighed 169....I now weigh 181 no jokeee!!!! This really helped me out a lot. I didn't buy the gold premium either
Heaven Sent ! 5/5
Super easy to use !! Beginner friendly which is a plus!! Counts your steps from your health app too and combines the information for you . Thank you 🙏🏽
A friend lost a lot of weight with this 5/5
I wanted to try it out to see if it was better than my fitness pal and it kinda is! I really like it
Not the worst or the best. 3/5
The app was really great except for when it came to scanning. The scanner is glitchy and can’t focus or says there’s an error, try later. Otherwise I’d have no complaints.
DO NOT SUPPORT 1/5
The USDA funds corporations and industries that cause cancer, heart disease, and diabetes (dairy, egg, meat, poultry, etc). Do NOT get nutrition advice from the USDA, ADA, ACA, etc. I would give this no starts or negative stars if I could. Shameful, disgusting, evil.
Missing a lot of sodium info and label discrepancies 1/5
Also a lot of nutrition labels do not match the product with no way to submit an update. The sodium issue is dangerous.
Good app but subscription incentive is idiotic 3/5
This app works. It also locks up your data (something as simple as average calories burned) in order to get you to subscribe - $3.75 to $10/month depending on how many months you buy. Is this the future? Subscribing to see your own data?
Without a subscription, it also won’t show weight loss/gain trends dating back more than a year. Unclear if paying the $50-120/year makes a difference.
The good news: Apple’s health app rips the data from this app and inputs it into its own historical graphs, so you re-gain access to your own data like an iOS Robin Hood. If that wasn’t the case I’d have to give 1 star - holding your data hostage for a subscription is absurd.
Choosing between apps 4/5
I like the graphics of this app. It engages very well. Wish more food was already listed. My biggest draw back is that my Fitbit does not sync. I don’t carry my phone with me all the time. So I don’t capture steps.
Great App, but Lacks Synchronization 4/5
I like this calorie and exercise tracking app a lot. What it is missing is synchronization. I have two iPads, an Apple Watch, and an iPhone. Whatever I enter on one device does not appear on the others, high drives me crazy. Please, link these via the users account.
Stuck in syncing or registering. 2/5
I downloaded this app, created a log in and it got stuck in registering. I closed out and tried to log in and now it is stuck syncing. I can’t get any further in the app.
Counts calories burned repeatedly 3/5
By No emoji655576
Still a problem with doubling calories burned from walking.
Loving this app! 4/5
This app was just what I was looking for to track what I am eating to help me eat a more balanced diet, lose weight, and be healthy. I wanted one that scans nutrition labels and this one fits the bill by scanning barcodes. I love it!!!
One problem I discovered. On Kroger eggs large it lists the protein as 0 instead of 6 per label. How do I report things like this to have them checked and corrected?
