Description

Other calorie counting apps boast 5 MILLION+ FOODS, but **news flash** nobody actually eats 5 million foods! In reality, people eat the same things on a regular basis, so instead of showing you a long list of irrelevant foods, we think it’s much more useful to show you PHOTOS of the most common foods people eat. The Carbs & Cals app contains 3,500+ food photos to help you get your portion size just right. PERFECT for: • Type 1 diabetes (carb counting) • Type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes • Weight loss (calorie/fat counting) • Anyone on the 5:2 or 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet • Fitness training (boosting carbs or protein) • Healthy eating (increasing fibre or fruit & veg) The bestselling and award-winning Carbs & Cals products help thousands of people control their diabetes and weight every year. We’ve listened to customer feedback and this update has been completely redesigned for 2017 with a brand new style and user experience - check it out today!

  • Too Slow to use

    I purchased this yesterday and I have spent an age trying to input food in. Spending 5 minutes waiting for the app to bring up the list of meals and then another 2 minutes to bring up the drinks.....? Too slow to be useable
  • Can’t use what I paid for

    This app fails again and again to finish the download of the database it needs to function. It sticks between 5% and 9% downloaded. So never mind the functionality, fix your servers or give me my money back.
  • iPhone X update

    This app is honestly essential to my life, don’t know what I would do without it. Would love if it had iPhone X support though!
  • App freezes downloading the database

    maybe great? who knows. third time trying to download the database - freezes again on 99% downloaded. it's not my wifi and it's not my phone - everything else works fine. a shame as i could really use an app like this to help me manage my diabetes. nil points.
  • So much value for Diabetics

    I’m a type 1 diabetic and this app is truly amazing. It’s helped me out on numerous occasions and every update just makes the app better and better. It takes the ease off having to work things out constantly as your able to chose a portion size from the pics, or can input the portion size (if you know it/weighed it) and it gives you the carb amount. Anything to help me and that takes even the smallest pressure off the daily grind of being diabetic is a godsend! Thanks :)
  • Best of many options

    Apps like this have become commonplace and there are hundreds of websites offering similar data. Carbs and Cals is by far the best of them, offering generic portion photography which is brilliant. We use it for carb counting and probably couldn’t live without it. That isn’t to say it’s faultless. Other foot tracking apps contain far more branded food alongside barcode scanning (check out Fitbit!) C+C has restaurant food but no photos which in itself is ok, it needs more to make it truly useful as otherwise you can’t compare the meals. Eg prezzo pizza - they don’t offer carbs on their website so I went to compare it zizzi which must be similar but there are no pictures. Don’t get me wrong, if we were in zizzi I would be singing it’s praises for having their menu. Carbs and cals could almost do with a second app or area just for collating branded food and restaurants.
  • Love it!

    The app is now working. The pictures are now viewable. The potato section should have boiled potatoes because in Scotland where i live there are a main part of our diet. Thanks for fixing it it took six months but you got there in the end. This app makes my life so much easier to control my carbohydrate intake 👍
  • Waste of money - Carbs show as zero

    1
    By Jennycopl
    I think it must be a bug but certain foods show up at having zero carbs when I know that is incorrect (I.e. for a large glass of red wine). I use this app as I’m diabetic (type 1) so this is a very serious error from my perspective! I paid £4.99 for this app and would highly recommend that others don’t waste their money.
