Just added this app. Have you used it for weightloss? How user friendly is it for you?

Ah, can I suggest you use Nutracheck instead? I used MyFitnessPal for a while and it was ok but a bit of a faff. My friend told me about Nutracheck and it’s so much easier and developed the UK so all the foods are recognisable. MFP is all American based which makes it a bit tricky.

Border girl, that app you suggested is brilliant, so simple and intuitive. I love the way it gives you pics of the food and portions to choose. Thanks a million!!

Gives a week free trial but after that, did you carry on and pay?

Oh so glad you like it, a breath of fresh air after doing battle with MFP! Trying to upload recipes from scratch on it was like swimming through treacle. I too love the pics on NC, anything that helps is great.

Yes I have continued with it (though I can be a bit tardy about logging everything every day grin).

Good luck!
