APP REVIEW: Sparkpeople Diet and Fitness Tracker


For people looking to lose a half-pound to 2 pounds per week or to maintain weight, this app tracks daily consumption of calories, carbohydrates, fat and protein. Meal plans customized for your goals are available, as well as a weigh-in page that graphs your weight and progress over time.

This is a great app; however, it only includes calories, carbohydrates, fat and protein. I would recommend using this app under the guidance of an RD to track the amount of sodium, saturated fat, fiber and other important nutrients that may be crucial to monitor for disease management.
