Do you use an iPhone app to track what you eat?

    I've recently become addicted to tracking data on my iPhone. I've been trying to find an app that will allow me to easily track what I've eaten. There's a lot of them out there, but they're bent towards LOSING weight and I'm trying to GAIN. I was wondering if anyone knew of an app designed with that bent in mind or if you use one of the "weight-loss" apps and fake it. Any thoughts would be most appreciated. Thanks!

    If they made an app for gaining weight, the obesity problem would fucking skyrocket. icon_lol.gif

    If you only want to log the foods you've eaten, then you don't need a special app. You just need a basic notepad or checklist or spreadsheet app. I'm sure the iphone has one built-in.

    Just log every bit of food you eat through the day. Then at the end of the week, do some research on the calorie and nutrition content for each. Then tally things up. Then you can correlate your data with your scale/body measurements. This will help you adjust your food intake, and help you decide what foods you need to eat more of.

    www.sparkpeople.com has an app that works with their site. While many use it to lose weight, there is nothing that forces you to use it for that purpose and you don't need to fake it. You can specify your own goals, e.e., calories, percent carbs, protein, and fat, and track it. You can augment the foods database with your own, and can group foods into meals to simplify entry. All free.

    I like DailyBurn.com. They have an app called DailyBurn Tracker that you can use on your iPhone.

    have you tried livestrong? It's free, you just search for what you ate and it will usually find it, along with how many calories and whatnot are in it. You can also use it to see how many calories you need to eat, or not eat, and also you can put in your physical activity

    Use an iPhone app called Muscle Gain. Tracks your calories, protein and fat. It helps me see the progress of my protein and calorie intake.
