  • An amazing tool Jan 27, 2021

    By madabouthouse
    I have had a great experience using this app. It’s easy to use, and is on my cell phone — so, I can update or edit my food intake and track my protein, carb, fat, and calorie intake through out the day. It has been easy to find and match the foods that I eat which makes it easy to be accurate and personalized about my exact food intake. It’s also very user friendly vehicle so it allows me to easily see if a particular food that I may be consider for consumption will fit into the limits/goals — that I’ve intentionally chosen for myself since it has a display panel that shows the maximum amount of calories, proteins, carbs, and fats that I’ve decided to consume daily. I am currently using this as a weight loss tool because, I unfortunately had put on 30lbs during the current Covid worldwide pandemic. I’m excited to say that I’ve already lost 7lbs is just 10 days. I have lost this weight without starving myself at all. I can also track my activities, exercising, and water intake too. I can’t wait to continue — and I plan to loose all my covid weight gain. I plan to use this app even after I reach my goal weight — because, my body thrives on a moderate calorie, low carb, high protein diet that incorporates good fats. I love how the program has notations about keto friendly foods. I also hope to eventually use the many great recipes that are linked to this site. Hip hip hooray to the help that this app offers with regard to healthy eating. Thank you!

  • Live it But One Big Fix Needed PLEASE 🙏🏼 Jul 21, 2019

    By nitamalcua
    I’ve really loved using this app to track my macro nutrients over the summer. It allows one to do a lot more without paying for premium than any other app I’ve seen on the market, and I’m very grateful for that. The app is essentially free to use, as the “premium” features just seem to be recipes and some super in depth nutrient tracking that I don’t personally need too much. However, my only gripe with the app that would seem like an easy fix would be the fact that your macro nutrient allowance does not balance in conjunction with your activity and subsequent loss of calories. For example, if I am allowed 100 grams of protein per day along with my other nutrients, and I eat all 100 grams at some point in the day, and end up at a calorie count of 2000, then burn 6-700 calories or more during a hard workout, shouldn’t there be an option showing that I have more slotted macronutrients. The number of calories that you can consume goes up because the calories you burned with your activity affects the calorie count on the app, but doesn’t affect your allowed macro nutrients. It’s so weird to me because it’s like the app is telling you that you need to eat more calories, but says you can’t have any more protein carbs or fats for the day. So what are you supposed to eat? That’s all. Thanks. :)

  • Really liking the revamp Jan 31, 2021

    I looked at carb manager before the Regan and just couldn’t get into it. I really like what they have done, you can tell that they put a lot of thought and hard work into their new and improved app. I love how easy it is to enter foods the barcode scanner has worked crazy fast for me with everything I’ve scanned so far. There’s tons of metrics you can teac track which is a huge plus for me because now I can have it all in one app instead of flipping through 3 like I did before. I can enter my blood glucose & ketone readings and it calculates my GKI. I can keep track of my body measurements to see how I’m progressing over time along with my weight. There’s just so much! It’s great. There are some bugs that still need to be worked out and crashing on the build a meal plan portion. I also wish that you didn’t have to pick a date to start your meal plan or so much food before moving on to the next step. The social aspect is nice, because it’s always enjoyable to run ideas past others on the same journey. Also the fact that they have recipes in app is awesome. Though I wish there was a dedicated spot for favorited recipes and the ability to create a shopping list from the favorites. I mean if we can make a meal plan shopping list why not make that feature available too. All in all this has been the perfect app for me. I hope they keep with these great improvements. Subbed to premium I liked everything so much.

  • Great tool for a Keto Diet! Oct 9, 2019

    By BIRD1E-1111
    I love this because you can track all of your macros quickly and easily. I love the ability to scan UPC codes to enter a new product. I love how you can enter recipes by entering a url. There are tons of recipes and you can edit recipes to suit your needs. There are meal plans included in the premium version but none of them suit my needs. They should be labeled differently than meal plan 1 etc so we do not have to look through each one. You can customize a meal plan which is great but it did not work for me. I entered “no seafood “ and it gave me only 1 choice for lunch which was an Asian salmon salad. Things I would change: on the water tracking, you can change your water goal for the day, but you cannot change the 8oz increments. I would like to be able to change it to 20oz or just be able to type in the amounts. You can copy foods from day to day but it is time consuming. I would like it if there was the option to check off items with a check box and add them all at once to another day. Also it would be nice to check off items on a previous day and have it saved as a meal. You can save items as a meal but you have to enter items individually, then save it as a meal. I think this app is invaluable and I recommend it to all of my Keto and Low Carb friends!

  • Makes it easy to track and instill habits ! May 19, 2020

    By sschof86
    I recently made the decision to try the keto diet. Many friends swear by it, and I see how people with epilepsy May benefit from it. As someone with epilepsy I decided to give it a go and see all the hype not tracking anything at first and I definitely felt like I needed something to keep me accountable and on track. I tried another app, but they only let you log 5 things in the free version before you must pay. For someone trying it out and trying keto I don’t want to pay especially in the beginning. Luckily I found Carb Manager. I like how as someone new to keto I can see my progress and make decisions from there. I have the free version and there’s tons the app is capable of within that itself, however with the premium feature you unlock more. In the future if I get more into it I might invest in that! I’ve had one or two issues, like when I recorded my weight for another day it updated my previous weight . I left a message in the app and they got back with me, longer than the 6 hours they promised but still ! I’ve had a bit of difficulty inputting my own recipes too, but I’m still figuring out all the app can do, but I’m extremely happy so far with my experience so I’ll give it 5 stars and recommend this to anyone trying the KetoDiet

  • New app updates are horrible! Feb 5, 2021

    By Michele Maxted
    I agree with all the negative comments written here. I have only been using this app for about 6 weeks. Today they've changed everything and I hate the app now. I used to be able to edit a recipe to suit us now I can't. Everything was so easy, now it's less than what is originally was. I'm going to cancel my subscription.

  • 2021 Upgrade is Terrible Feb 4, 2021

    By cathie figlewski
    I liked the app because it was easy to use, tracked all my nutrients, adding and editing my favorites and recipes were easy to get to so 2 weeks ago I paid for a 3 month subscription. Then forced upgrade today. What a flipping joke!!! It is terrible trying to navigate just to find foods and recipes. I can't filter the specific foods items under the In-Depth such as saturated fats. No more running reports to compare my progress from week to week. I canceled my subscription.

    This site is so poorly put together that you can't trust any of the values that it gives. The new app is worse than the old one! And when i asked that my money be refunded - first they said i had a three month subscription which was soon to be expired so they refused my request. I sent them another message and said it was a yearly subscription and I really did not like the app and financially with Covid and all i would really appreciate my money back - needless to say they refused.

    I loved the previous app style. Your app was so helpful. Change is inevitable but now it's convoluted. The new app is hard to read. No longer is it easy to locate foods, enter specific weights or enter recipes. I've done all the updates. I do not have the time to spent to figure out the new app. What took 2 mins to enter my day now takes 30 mins just for breakfast.. How can you take an app that works beautifully to something so visually complicated and hard to use. I'm finding a different app.

    Updated the app and wiped all of my data! Having to start again from scratch with all my recipes and favourites. I also paid for premium subscription and they still wiped everything! The app was decent before the update, perhaps a little dated on the UI side but now they've gone the other way. The new UI is not good, over complicated and doesn't work. Seeing as I have to start from scratch, I may as well choose a new app. Would rate 0 stars if possible. Stopped my subscription too. Avoid!

  • 5-stars if you’re ready to upgrade to Premium Nov 7, 2018

    By mpjinnj
    Carb Manager has been a wonderfully useful app for me. The interface is extremely user friendly, it has great visuals that keep it from looking bland (as food tracking often feels for me), and I love the level of customization of goals and amount of pre-built recommendations available. While Carb Manager sounds like it’s designed for Keto diets, it actually works great for more traditional diet plans, as well (ie Zone, Body Building, etc). I use it for Low-Carb, High-Fat that was recommended by my doctor (not as carb restrictive as Keto), and it had that option pre-built, as well. I’m really excited about trying the Premium features, but haven’t taken the plunge yet. The good thing is that it’s more affordable than most premium upgrade options from similar apps. Once I decide on which Apple Watch my wife and I are getting, I’ll upgrade to premium (required for Apple Health syncing) and update then. The fact that premium is required for that is the only reason this app gets 4-stars; otherwise it’d easily be 5-stars. If you’re willing to pay the $40/year, then it’ll be a 5-Star app for sure (assuming you actually use it, which is the crux of most food/calorie tracker apps).

  • Great! Just one wish, to save shared recipes. Feb 13, 2020

    By SashaP82
    I’ve just converted to a Keto lifestyle, I tried a few apps and CarbManager has the best features while using the free version of the app. Thank You!!! I truly believe I can eat whatever my heart desires twisted to Keto, in that frame of mind I am always creating new recipes. In the last 4 days of having the app, I have created and added 4 of them. I love that it totals up all the nutritional values and when I add it to my daily food, let’s say as my dinner, those adjust to the serving size. I cook for a very large household and since a few of us are trying to stick to Keto friendly meals it’s nice to be able to share the recipes, however, they can’t save them so that they can benefit from the same nutritional information in their daily meal records. That means each app user has to create the recipe in their app, that’s quite frustrating. I’m hoping there is a way to update this, it maybe I am just saving wrong. I always give permission to publish when I create a new recipe, the little box is checked. I’m guessing it just takes a while to verify each one of those before they are published, which is understandable, but if we all had my invented dish for dinner then we would all like to have the benefit of just adding it once shared from the app, which is another feature I love! Thanks again for the great work!!!

  • Great App But Needs Tweaks Sep 25, 2018

    By quietlyobvious
    I found this app last week and really enjoy using it. It easily helps me keep track of my macros and lets me see what I’m eating and where I can improve. That being said, there are a couple issues that reduce the user-friendliness of this app. First, you cannot enter your own recipe and save it. This is a great feature of the Weight Watchers app that I was hoping this one had. I can import a recipe from online, but I haven’t seen where I can create my own recipe and save it. Instead, I have to individually list each item (in let’s say homemade salad dressing), and there is no option to copy multiple ingredients from one day to the next. So even though I drink the same Keto coffee or eat leftovers for lunch from dinner the night before, I have to painstakingly copy each ingredient one by one. If I could just simply copy each one, that would be great, but instead the app flips you to the current day after selecting the meal time to place the copied ingredient. Right now I’m trying to copy certain ingredients from Sunday’s dinner to Monday’s lunch, and each time I select an ingredient to copy, I get reverted back to today, then have to back arrow twice to Sunday, scroll down, and copy the next item. It’s time consuming and tedious and really the only thing I would say should be fixed to make the app more user-friendly and efficient.

  • Best NET CARB Nutrition App Jan 16, 2018

    By Mark Wagner
    (Update) Still the best app for tracking nutrition especially for calculating net carbs. However, the app is a little buggy at times which is usually easily remedied by closing the app and reopening; however, it’s inconvenient. That said, this app is still my favorite and is very well designed and targeted towards net carb calculation and tracking. The application interface and design is still the best out there. (Original post) This Carb Manager app is clearly the best nutrition management app I have used in years. I have been using a couple other (MyFitnessPal and Lose It) apps for several years (7+). Neither of those apps completely covered my needs like Carb Manager does to determine target nutrition goals, net carbohydrates, reliable food database, general metrics and statistics at a glance without having to perform manual calculations in my head or on paper. It has been frustrating to say the least and those inferior apps have always left me wanting something better. Well, this Carb Manager app is fantastic. Could not be happier. And the bonus is this app has a much better user interface and is so much more intuitive to use, and the annual or monthly premium membership is comparable if not cheaper than both of those “other” apps - double bonus! It also works beautifully on both the iPad and the iPhone.

    I loved this app prior to the major, recent updates. I cannot find the macro percentages in my daily food logs. Shows grams eaten or what's left of the day and sure I can calculate the percentage of what I did that day, but really?? Also, the app is constantly closing on me while I'm logging or creating recipes and work was not saved. I need to start looking for a new app.
