Got a quick question: Is anyone on Weight watchers,Nutrisystem Medifast etc.? Thanks in advance for any answer or 2. Second question of mine... I've been fairly good about writing down my food in my paper journal, and at first was logging this all on the Nutrisystem website, but lately I've gotten tired of how long it takes to enter food on the Nutrisystem site. Journaling is definetly key for me in making sure I get everything in, and keeping me honest with myself (plus notes I write on things happening that day that caused me to stray or whatnot)..

Anyway, curious what apps some of you might use on your iPhone / iPod Touch devices to track food, weight loss, etc..

I've even thought about trying my hand at writing a Nutrisystem based app for myself (have never written an iPhone app but do have programming skills). I used to use an app for Weight Watchers on my old Palm device many years ago and may see about doing a similar type for NS. But if there are good apps people are usings, I'd rather not reinvent the wheel if I don't have to.

Ye, although you might wanna make sure and wait for another member to confirm my answer as I am unsure. Better yet, why don't you give a call to the Nutrisystem guys because they can give you an answer better...

Hey Mike,.

I use Lose It! It's a great app, the best free iPhone app I use. It doesn't have the Nutrisystem food pre-loaded, but it's easy enough to enter as custom foods. Tracking food this way is definitely one of my keys to success...

I'm still waiting for Nutrisystem to come out with their own App!..

Livestrong has The Daily Plate on the PC which is pretty good. I have been told that the iPhone app for that is very good as well. I have not gotten around to getting it yet. It is $3..

The daily plate has a great database of food, including all the Nutrisystem food I have tried to enter...

Try the Sparkpeople app. It requires creating a free account at, but it is the most convenient app out there because it includes a database of user-added foods. Almost every Nutrisystem food (and anything else you can think of) is already entered in the database by the users. You can, of course, add whatever's missing, but you won't have to do that too often. You can set up favorites that make it easy to add the stuff you eat regularly, too..

I tried Lose It and it's a good app but not nearly as convenient as sparkpeople's IMO...

I checked out Sparkpeople. The site is a little cluttered but it indeed is very easy to use for adding foods. It is one area where Nutrisystem is really missing the boat since the food tracker here is practically useless due to being so painfully slow. But the Sparkpeople site is easy to use and responsive. And you can even add items can be added in advance if you know what you are going to eat for a particular day. Finally, the price of free is very gratifying...

I wish Nutrisystem would come up with their own app that has a checklist, just like the web version and the paper booklet. The website takes way too long to make it useful, and when I have tried to use the website on my iPod touch, I can't always scroll down to the food item I want to add. Frustrating! I do MUCH better when I keep track of my day, and REALLY wish Nutrisystem would help out with a good app!..
