Since my gall bladder surgery back in October 2012, and also in the past, I have used the Calorie Tracker app to track not only what I eat but also my weight and exercise. For me, most of my weight loss issues have to do with portion control, so monitoring what I eat on a daily basis is very important. Since re-dedicating myself to using the app I have lost mother 16 pounds. I have about another 85 pounds to lose, but tracking in this way seems to work for me.

The free Lite version of the app only tracks on your mobile device itself, but the full app will also sync to the web site and provide some other features. I find that entering in foods and meals can be easier using the web site, but in either case you have a large collection of foods to select from when entering your meals. This means that often I can simply select the food and portion to enter. When I am entering homemade food items, I use the food list to estimate the calorie content of my homemade item and act as a placeholder in my calorie count.

Having all this information on your mobile device really helps you to monitor what you eat and track it over time. I make a point of entering my meals and checking my totals either before or soon after I eat and this really helps me to stay on-track.

I just downloaded the My Plate lite version on my android phone. I don't get it. It doesn't show a place to log in or show my results entered earlier today on my laptop. What's the point of this lite version?
