I am testing some calorie counter apps for my phone and have just installed Noom weight loss, which is one of the highest rated apps in this category in the android market. I like the weight tracking and and the exercise section - but what's up with the food?
They try to make it as simplistic as possible and don't use precise measurements but rough estimates. Fair enough. But here is the big problem. Food is split into 3 categories - good, ok, and bad. Obviously these apps aren't made for low carbers, but I still want to keep track on what I eat. But these categories are just ridiculous. How can whole milk be a red item when wine and bear is yellow and ok? White bread is ok but egg with yolks is bad? And any fruit is good - no mention of banana or grapes being full of sugar.
Too bad, I kind of like the look and feel and that it is so simple but I definitely don't agree with how they categorize food.
