It was easy-to-use and some of you might like what I didn’t. It is a bland, vanilla interface. Kind of gray, black & white coloring, very simplistic. I’ve learned that not everyone likes color like me after reading reviews about blog and website templates. I’ve heard “beautiful” described for a very plain WordPress template, for example, and I didn’t see it.
As I’ve mentioned before, dieting isn’t fun and neither is tracking it every day. I want something to lighten and brighten the task, and fatsecret’s calorie counter didn’t do that for me.
- great roller thingy for figuring portion sizes – it usually had a lot of choices unlike some others I’ve tried
- has a barcode scanner, although it never worked, but if I manually entered the code it would find the item
- has a good selection of items plus popular brands, supermarket brands and restaurants
- has a sync capability
- has an exercise diary and weight tracker

- scanner didn’t work but code could be entered manually
