Carbs & Cals: Visual counter for diet & diabetes

By Chello Publishing (Chello Publishing Limited)

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!

Comments and Ratings for Carbs & Cals: Visual counter for diet & diabetes

Historic data (4.0.5)
04/06/2017 06:37:47 3/5 By Old Woman 987
I have just gone back to look at what I ate yesterday and all that shows is toast and marmalade. I note that I can see the information in "targets" but I wanted to see in more detail. What am I doing wrong, this is my first week of using this for weight loss.

Disappointing since new changes (4.0.5)
03/06/2017 14:47:57 1/5 By whitewitch23
As someone that relies on this app daily I feel no longer caters for food is geared to buying food etc from certain take seats cafes etc disappointing as can't find just normal foods.

What a waste of money (4.0.5)
29/05/2017 17:42:59 1/5 By Thejam1967
Why doesn't this app recognise brands such as Del Monte or Mullerice it downloads the British food but doesn't recognise anything I want my money back

Would not be without this app. (4.0.5)
26/05/2017 02:00:27 5/5 By Lyndy22
Would not be without this app. A great help in getting my Glucose levels under control and keeping a watchful eye on my carb intake. The fact that you have visuals as well as data is a bonus. It's so easy to put in your own foods, a few minutes reading and entering the nutrition info from the packaging is all it takes. Teething problems when the app was updated but now that they are all sorted it's better than ever.

Vastly improved (4.0.5)
18/05/2017 08:03:39 5/5 By Mol90
Was recommended the original app by the hospital when my daughter was diagnosed type 1. I personally hated the old version, find this much better. Doesn't have to update every time I open it like the previous one. Looks better too.

Fantastic (4.0.5)
15/05/2017 07:49:52 5/5 By Grmma Arkell
This App gets better and better as new foods are added all the time. Really helps me when eating out with type 1 diabetes! You'll be surprised just how many food items and meals are listed!

I want to look up CHO values (4.0.5)
14/05/2017 12:36:19 1/5 By Tish PG
If I wanted to create goals and targets I'd use FitBit. This app is now overly complicated.

Update is horrendous! (4.0.5)
14/05/2017 11:50:53 1/5 By Andreabrys
I'm writing to agree with all the other 1 star reviews from type 1s who rely heavily on this app. It used to be a very unique and useful tool and now it's just like every other weight loss app (someone else referenced its likeness to MyFitnessPal). The user journey has taken a complete nosedive with having to add a meal every time I try to look up a food. This is not the app I previously paid £3.99 for! It also seems there is less food in the database now; is this the case? I just tried to look up normal milk and couldn't find it. ?? I don't think it's ethical to completely change the app on an update. This doesn't suit type 1s at all anymore! I was recommended this app by my diabetes clinic at my hospital but I'll have to inform them on my next visit that it isn't really suitable anymore and they should stop recommending it to patients. What a shame!

Ruined App (4.0.5)
13/05/2017 01:24:32 1/5 By Redmond7
Was brilliant app as quick and easy to use for carb counting for Type 1 diabetic. Now useless as cant check food without having registered as having eaten it and is like My Fitness app which is also full of unwanted stuff that have to use to get to the area you do want. If type 1 diabetic dont buy this app.

. (4.0.5)
11/05/2017 06:36:32 4/5 By Trevorvp
Much improved after the latest version update.
