Love this app 5/5
Super convenient and easy to use! Love it!
Good user-friendly UI and easy calorie counting, BUT scanner needs improvement 4/5
I've been using this app for months now (also am good/VIP member) and I can honestly say it's the best out of the calorie counting apps I've tried. The interface is super easy to understand and it makes tracking macros easy as heck!
My only issue is that sometimes the barcode scanner for entering food does not pick up the barcode. I'll eat the same protein bar on different days and sometimes the scanner reads it while other days I can tap on the screen to focus the camera a hundred times and it still won't read it. Even with perfect lighting and focus, sometimes it just doesn't read the barcodes.
Because of this, I wish there was another option to scan the nutrition facts panel with your camera. It could be implemented under the "my food" tab where you create your own foods. You could name your food, then the scanner would read the text in the nutrition facts and pull the info for calories/fat/carbs/protein and add it automatically. This would work great for barcodes that don't scan for lesser known products as well (a lot of organic weird health food stuff I buy often shows up as "barcode not found").
Just a thought! Thanks for the great app :)
No cholesterol info??? 1/5
I think the app is great with one very important mention. The cholesterol level is as important as the others. Most of the foods don’t show the correct cholesterol levels, some NONE.
I’m really looking forward to change my feedback once this important information will be added to their database.
Ability to scan barcode would be nice 5/5
I love this app but I wish we could scan the barcode for a food item.
Helped me lose 60lbs. 5/5
No app or trainer or fad diet will ever make you drop weight without any effort, but this app makes it so much easier. Counting calories, counting the calories I lose from exercising, automatically counting steps and how many calories you lose from that, I love this app.
Great app 5/5
Very helpful and useful works well
Great App 4/5
Would have given it 5 Stars, but it keeps turning off the activity tracker.
This has gave me so much advice 5 stars
Good app, needs small updates 4/5
By BoyMom RN
Good app but putting in water could be easier.
I cannot reset my calories or tell the program how much weight I want to lose. Not helpful
I love to eat right now!!! 5/5
By 4 Otr trker
Finally a guide I can follow a road map if you will. I haven’t screwed up yet it’s black and white and if you find yourself cheating it’s almost funny. I direct self infliction. I have one complaint!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is no favorite button where you can put your regularly used items with out having to select days. Just a frequently used button instead of recently added. 9 3/4!!
Great app 5/5
By Mae Lena
This has helped me keep track of what I’m eating and helping me limit unnecessary snacking. Also keep track of calories burned as I breastfeed or do a light workout
Would recommend 5/5
By Keegan I.
Great app if you want to watch what you eat and are into fitness. Would recommend.
Trying to track salt for a heart-healthy diet. Multiple scans of items with obvious levels of sodium result in zero sodium tracked (sea salt has zero grams of sodium - seriously???).
No real issue 4/5
It seems good so far but I wish I could adjust my goal calorie intake on the app.
Great app, easy to use 5/5
I like this app because it takes very little time to track. It has a great forum and workouts, and syncs to Apple Health. Tracking food may seem like a chore, but if you’re used to it it’s super fast, especially on MyPlate.
Just misses 3/5
This app misses out by not having ocr capability to scan and identify nutrition labels and automatically identify and load that information to assist in calorie tracking.
Can’t get notifications to STOP popping up on my home screen. I have turned off all notifications and they won’t stop. Frustrating
App not syncing to Apple Watch 3 3/5
Dear Dev Team!
Downloaded iPhone app and loved the functionality. Grabbed a Gold membership, but the app isn’t syncing to my Apple Watch 3. Any idea if this is an WatchOS version issue? Please advise and fix and will gladly move rating to 5 stars!
Room for improvement 2/5
I got this app because I really needed to focus on my macros. I was able to enter in the macros as my body needed however many of the foods that are in the system or not correct. When I tried to add my own food the nutrients did not show up there for throwing off the macros. Also would like to see more ways to add food such as ounces or grams as well as more options for serving size.
Can’t sign in after pulling app from the cloud with new phone 1/5
It’s not just the app. The LiveStrong website prompts for password reset doesn’t work either.
But It surely “says” I’ve already signed up with my email if I try a new sign up. Really makes you crave a big ole piece of chocolate cake. Oh well, the WW site does the same thing...their app works though.
Great App 5/5
By Adnan Sh.
I had had a heart attack about 2 months ago and my cardiologist recommended to watch the food I eat. I am not overweight and was very athletic and always watched my diet. This app really helped me to correct my mistakes in my diet and keep track of my calories, sugar and other counts. Very easy to use and gives very detailed information. I am very happy and would recommend this app all to all health conscious people. Definitely a Five star.
Protein goals too high? 5/5
Love the app but I'm confused. I weigh 115 lb and want to maintain my weight, just become more toned. The app suggests I eat 130g of protein a day but everything I read on the internet suggests 50g of protein is adequate for the average person. Why is there such a discrepancy?
Simple mistakes 3/5
App works pretty well. Looking forward to some bugs to get squashed.
Good app 5/5
Good way of keeping track
Too bad the scanner never works 1/5
By p. picasso
I have to type every freaking thing. Will use something else.
Love this app! Very easy to use and shows the information very clearly.
The only problem I have with the app is I have to constantly change my preferences on it logging my activity. It gets automatically turned off several times a week.
Other than that it is great and I will continue using it!
Not Happy 2/5
By Jr Frog
I like the app. However I do not like the fact it is advertised as no cost then require you to fat a monthly fee to be ad free. I do not like the bait and switch approach.
This app is special because when you or your family or your friends is trying to loose fat. You can show this to them. It is a VERY VERY helpful way to loose fat. Keep track of height and what you eat. It mainly helps with what you eat and how you feed yourself. IF I WERE YOU I WOULD GET THIS ,AND AT LEAST TRY IT!!!
Great app easy to use 5/5
This app works great and is soooo easy to use! Just turned 63 and was told at my last checkup that my blood sugar had just crossed to the pre-diabetic stage. Losing some weight is the answer. I’ve lost about 9 pounds in just a couple of months with just a few simple changes. This app makes it so easy to track everything you need. I can watch fat and sugar-carb intake as well as work to increase my fiber, all making my diet and ME healthier!
By nurse cathi
This is too confusing I’d try to type in what I ate hoping it would calculate calories etc but it wanted me to calculate or I just could not figure out how to let it help me
Helpful tool 4/5
I need to track intake and find this a helpful tool. Particularly helpful is the barcode scanner!
Good app but... 3/5
It’s a good app. Well thought out and seems pretty safe. Everything seems pretty solid, but I keep getting these scary pop up ads. I don’t really know what this tells about their company, but honestly don’t want to get in any sort of issue. Any body else experiencing this? Hope they can fix it because it’s getting a little worry some. Any way... I guess it’s a good app.
Can you give something zero stars? 1/5
I got a new phone and downloaded the app and signed in...EVERYTHING erased...my macros, protein, carb, fat, calorie count all gone this is a joke
My plate 4/5
It is great but you have to pay or to go gold is what the app says but over all it was ok
Good but could be better 4/5
Need to be able to add several food items at a time. Like select several recent items at once to add to a meal.
First Day 3/5
Still trying to find a way to enter the amounts that my dietitian recommended. It seems stuck on a default number. I also need to see, so I can track, my protein, potassium, Phosphorus and sodium numbers.
This is not the easiest program to navigate, but it's for sure not the hardest either. If I can get the above-mentioned items figured out I have no problem purchasing it. You would think with 31,000,000 Americans with Kidney Disease there would be a program that would address this.
You can’t even use it 1/5
This app use to be great. I used this app once with no problems. Now I can’t log in. No matter what I do it say “email address already in use”. Which is BULL because I created a brand new email account specifically to use this app. I thought it was my fault, that I must have done something wrong the first time. So I made the new email. But nope! This is the most infuriating app. There’s no point in it if you can’t even use it! Don’t waste your time. What’s the big secret that you have to keep our weight loss under lock and key anyway?
Limited exercise tracking 3/5
I have to turn on “track my activity” at random. I cannot tell which of my fitness tracking apps this one is linked to. When I use two different apps on a bike ride, the activity is doubled. I would prefer to control which apps were communicating with this one for that reason. (This maybe an issue with the setup on my phone and not the app itself)
MyPlate & Apple Watch Activity/Workout/Health app & Intermittent Fasting. 5/5
By i Select
Hi. I’m using MyPlate for weight loss in conjunction with Intermittent Fasting. I have MP synced with the Health app on my iPhone X, and with the Activity and Workout apps on my Apple Watch (Series 1) and everything is working well together. I had to disable the iPhone’s Step Count feature to insure the apps weren’t adding steps from both the phone and watch in MP. I understand this set-up isn’t going to give perfect diagnostic accuracy, however it does provide me the ability to document and monitor my activity well enough to see progress and stay on track.
Needs a little improvement 3/5
I really like this app and it’s helped me to count calories and calculate steps/calories burned, however, the calories burned keep changing to a lower amount than what it says initially. The steps do not match up with the steps taken by my walking app on my health app. It does during the day and then for some reason, it doesn’t later on. Today, I had 5,000 steps logged and MyPlate had it noted for awhile and then I went to open it again before dinner and it now says 185 steps. Where did they all go??
Love! Forces you to think about everything you ingest.
Great app 5/5
I love how I can track all of my needs on the basic app. It keeps me focused and consistent.
Great so far 5/5
So far app is amazing!!! Lots of positive feedback and encouragement on the community board without people knowing you personally. Support also answered email in same day. Loving it so far!!
awesome app 5/5
This app can literally find any food of any kind anywhere and give you the exact serving you had. for example, if a full serving of butter is 1 tbls, but you only had 1/4 of that tablespoon, this app will recognize it and put the exact amount of calories, carbs, fat, and protein consumed. If you’re trying to lose weight, it will put you on a fat, carb, and protein calorie intake plan and it’s working wonders. it also tracks any movement you’ve made to burn any calories and calculates your net. I will use this app FOREVER. FIVE STARS!!!
Not the greatest 2/5
Based on calories. You enter in what you ate and it logs your calories, problem is you can’t see what you ate. There is no where to see the list of food you ate for the day only calorie amounts.
Very helpful app!! 4/5
By Tushar Thakkar
App is very helpful in syncing my intake in terms of calories for comparing against my daily routine burnout from the workouts
Free, easy to edit 4/5
Foods are easy to look up, and adding meals is easy to do and edit. It makes offers to go gold for price but seems to work fine without it. Olive Garden menu items are on it also.
Amazing app!! 5/5
I’ve had this app for almost 2 weeks, and I’ve lost almost 10 lbs., just by calorie counting and portion control. I’m not very active on a day to day basis, but to see the results by just changing my eating habits? It’s amazing! I’ve recommended this app to a lot of my friends already!
A Foodie’s Best Friend 5/5
I’m a total Foodie, so it’s nice to have the nutrition of my day tracked and put directly in my face. I’m excited about this app and hopeful that it’ll help me get my Foodie urges under control and get me back to needing a belt!
The app is very easy to use, and it only takes a couple of minutes to update my food intake. It’s easy to add things I can’t find, which is rather rare thanks to an extensive database.
