Calorie Counter Pro Review
Calorie Counter Pro is a diet and weight loss app that promises to be the “fastest, easiest, and smartest” calorie counter for iOS and Android. Here’s our review.
What is Calorie Counter Pro?
Calorie Counter Pro is a calorie counting app created by a company named MyNetDiary.
The app promises to help anyone keep track of their caloric intake in order to achieve their weight loss goals.
Like most calorie counting apps, the app works using a database of thousands of foods – each of which comes with complete calorie information and other nutritional information.
In this case, the database for Calorie Counter Pro claims to contain 679,000 foods.
Calorie Counter Pro Features
Some of the key features that distinguish this app from other calorie counters include:
— Fast food entry, including a barcode scanner and instant search tool
— Food database that includes restaurants, grocery stores, special diets, and ethnic foods. This database is also updated daily.
— Track exercise and strength training, including your time, distance, sets, or reps across multiple types of exercises.
— Daily and weekly analysis of your progress towards your set fitness and weight loss goals
— Track additional body measurements like water intake, daily steps, hours of sleep and work, blood pressure, heart rate, blood glucose, A1C (and other lab test results), cholesterol, medications and symptoms, etc. (you can customize the app to track all, some, or none of these metrics).
The Calorie Counter Pro Food Catalog
The complete food catalog for the app can be seen here: http://www.mynetdiary.com/foodSearch.do
That food catalog, at the time of writing, included 412,000 verified foods along with 267,000 contributed foods (which means that users added them to the app’s database themselves).
Like other good food catalogs, you can search through the catalog by vendors, categories, keywords, and other metrics. All major fast food places, restaurants, and food brands are in the catalog.
