Calorie Counter and Food Diary by MyNetDiary Reviews


MyNetDiary vs MyFitnessPal  tigerlily8751  5 star

As a free user I am not into the more advanced settings like creating recipes or tracking supplements but the overall layout is easy to use and very helpful. The forums are especially nice. A good group of people that are friendly and supportive with registered dietitians that give sound advice. I took a look at MyFitnessPal and it was a similar layout and I know it's really popular but as such it attracts some of the wrong kind of people. I found the forums to be quite hostile and there were no registered dietitians. I prefer MyNetDiary over MyFitnessPal and have left the latter in the dust. If you want a positive place to be then I recommend MyNetDiary as a kind word goes a lot farther than a negative one.


My favorite so far  ForgetSavDarling  4 star

I really like the interface and the fact that i can use it both on my computer and on my phone without having to spend any money. Ive tried other apps like this but always forget to enter my meals - for some reason, im not having a hard time remembering with this one. I wouldve given it 5star except i find that the food lookup is a bit lacking as far as everyday foods go. For instance, i couldnt find regular old (name brand here) creamy peanut butter, only the all natural kinds and diet kinds which makes me have to look up the info and enter it myself which, if im busy and just entering it quick, im less likely to remember to do. Also, theres not many options on what to add for workouts. I do 30-60m long workout videos but i can never decide what to put it under since most i do are split up with X amount of time spent doing cardio, X amount spent doing stretching, X amount str training, etc.


App is broken  morazmataz  1 star

I tried to put in my info and it wouldn't let me put in a target date that was less than 15 years. It also listed 8000 calorie daily target. When I left whatever it filled in it gave me an error message. Deleted it

Zach bishhhh

like the app  Zach bishhhh  3 star

like the app but i would love it if i could have a grade in how good the whole meal together is. like you have each item grade but how about a whole meal! that's what i need to see if i'm eating right


Love this app!  Iohopaix  5 star

I started using this app in 2013 on the advise of a fitness professional. I stopped using it for unknown reasons. I picked it up again in 2017 after gaining nearly 20 lbs. I was hand-tracking my food for an intensive diet revamp and was so frustrated with the time and effort. Then I remembered MyNetDiary. I loaded it onto my phone and, suddenly, the diet I had embarked upon was a whole lot less frustrating. I've lost 10 lbs so far and, thanks to this clever app, which has improved greatly since my last usage, I am even entertained and enlightened by the process. I'm using the FREE version and have budget issues that prevent me from paying to link it to my FitBit so there is a bit of confusion as to whether my steps are really being taken into account. Also, there are boat loads of spelling errors and nutrional calculations in the foods. A user must be very careful when choosing food items. But that's Operator Error more than a fault with the app. The FREE version is excellent. I don't know if the subscription is worth it.

Everything you wish you were

Works well, missing a few things tho  Everything you wish you were  4 star

I used MFP for a few years, largely because friends and family did and it was nice to stay connected. On whim I downloaded this and it beats it hands down! However, there are a few things I'd like to see in the app. The ability to sync active calories in health kit, as opposed to just calories from workouts, would be nice. Having to manually add calories burned outside of tracked workouts is a bit of a pain. Also, a complication in the Apple Watch would be great, being able to see calories left or other information on the watch face, and being able to jump right into the app without sorting through the gallery or the dock would be fantastic.


Highly suggested  Suhmantha  5 star

This app is motivational and user-friendly... get it and stick to it and it will be your best friend!

It doesn't say how much sugar intake


Great just change one thing  VickieG95  4 star

Can you change "what's your gender" to "what's your sex". Don't wanna be transphobic. (:

Swim Mom Probz

Suddenly stopped working with iOS health app  Swim Mom Probz  4 star

I love this app! But, for some reason, it stopped working with my iOS health app yesterday, and it won't log my daily steps. All the permissions and selections are in place. I even turned them off and on to try and get it to work. Not sure if it's an issue here or with the iOS health app.


Good App  Trey232323  4 star

This is a good app that helps you record food for weight loss. The barcode scanner is an awesome tool to use when you are changing to clean eating. One of the issues that I find is adding in a home cook meal to the custom recipes. All in all the app helps change the way we approach meals and losing weight.


Better on 6s vs 6s Plus  KingFamily6  5 star

Really do love the app. My wife, children and I all use it like clock work. Keeps us focused on good food choices. We like scanning the food prior to eating it because that will sometimes sway us into a decision to avoid an unhealthy food.


So far so good  TimHolt  5 star

Getting my health back is my goal. At 53 and over weight from no plan with eating, after a few weeks I am more thoughtful on what I have been eating and have lost a few pounds. It's great to see a breakdown of the quality of my nutrition. It's a little work, it well worth it. I have also purchsed a digital wifi scale and BP cuff. It's all coming together nicely.

Sk8er MOM

Great App- Amazing!  Sk8er MOM  5 star

I find this app very helpful... Very simple to keep track of your daily caloric intake. I have recommended this app to friends!


Easy to use  T1765  5 star

I love this app! I have never been able to stick with a calorie counter before and burnt out frequently. This app is easy to use and gives so much detailed information that I can't stop using. Lost 3 pounds in 1 week just using this counter. I love that it tell you how many calories to consume to meet your goal weight. Great app

Rachel ByDesign

Rachel Perry  Rachel ByDesign  4 star

Suggestion to separate the percentages of carbs to show simple and complex Otherwise everything is very handy to use


Best Fitness App  Abby2344643  5 star

I love this app and am obsessed with using it. Within the first week I lost almost three pounds. It is very interactive and has way more to do than just inputting your calorie intake. It is full of informative articles and ways to track your progress to keep you motivated. I find this app so much more fun and effective than my fitness pal.


User friendly  Prin&fam  5 star

I love this app! It's very user friendly. I do much better if I log my calories so this app is perfect for that!


LOVE this app!  Egzrbunny  5 star

I love this app! I finally decided to do something about the lbs. creeping up on me since I'd turned 50 so I downloaded My Net Diary. I've lost 12 lbs. in 6 wks. and am thrilled. I haven't really changed what I eat as much as portion control and I've learned that snacks I thought were healthy really weren't. It has been over a year since I wrote the above review. I have lost a total of 27 lbs. AND kept the weight off with the help of My Net Diary! I can't recommend it enough!

Babu Si Nur

Lovin the App!  Babu Si Nur  5 star
