Many apps let you see you monday through sunday and how much over or under you are and adjust your calories after that to stay on track.
The first thing that has felt doable and sustainable in a long time. I’m not so calorie restricted that I can’t still build muscle, and I’m still losing weight! Very happy!
Love Carbon. Great tracker and AI coach that adjusts. Two issues though: When starting a new diet the app asks if you know your body fat %. If you click no it asks you to measure your waist which it will use to estimate body fat. The resulting value has been way, way off every-time, grossly underestimating my body fat and throwing the diet off. I have to use picture guides from Google to estimate where I am. The second concerns days where you don’t get around to tracking food. Yes, we ought to do it everyday. But it would be nice if the app automatically detected no entries and then asked “Did you intentionally not eat today?” and adjust tracking calories accordingly. Great app otherwise.
Love the ready made database of foods. I just need to point to the bar code and the app does the rest.
John has been addressing my concerns and questions in prompt manner. I like the app and trusting it. Using it only for a week, but I see great value. Using currently a reverse diet program after a four months strict diet, prior joining the Carbon.
Wish this app had a feature to decrease calories more gradually instead of drastically slashing them due to water weight fluctuations. If you’re on your period or not complaint for a week, it’s basically useless. Would like to see more flexible features like the MacroFactor app has, such as the ability to silence and decline changes to your macros upon checking in. Probably great for people who have a lot of weight to lose. But not so much for people who are leaner/closer to their goal weight. Also the dashboard of MacroFactor just looks better. Sorry Carbon.
The app is the best I have seen for nutrition and weight tracking. I really wish it would track exercise and fasting as well even if it is not using that data to adjust the suggested caloric and macro intake, it is really helpful to track everything in once place.
UI, coaching etc is superior to my fitness pal but not having the daily calories adjust to calories burned via workouts through apple health API integration is a major bummer! I’m sure it will be added eventually but something to be aware of if you’d like to try this subscription only service
So glad I found this app. I've been a regular user of MyFitnessPal for 6+ years and have logged thousands of days and meals. This app is replacing it and I'm canceling my premium membership with MyFitnessPal. The “coach” feature is great, and the ability to use the planner is a game changer. I used to use a spreadsheet in conjunction with MFP to plan, but I no longer need to with this app.
needs a free trial. it’s not even about me, I think you guys are losing out on customers because you don’t offer a free trial. Like even just a couple weeks would be fine. I’m not going to pay for an app when it tells me to pay before even telling me what it does.
