Anyway, eating healthy sometimes can be challenging. When eating healthy it’s best to count how many calories per day we consume and also track do we get all the necessary vitamins and minerals with our diet. Nutrition tracker apps can help us do all of that kind of stuff.

So, that’s why in this article we’ll review a few main nutrition tracker apps and find out what’s the best nutrition tracker app in 2022.

Top 5 best nutrition apps:

  1. MyNetDiary
  2. MyFitnessPal
  3. MyPlate
  4. FatSecret
  5. Cronometer

1. MyNetDiary

Price: Free, $8.99 per month or $59.99 per year
Platform: Android, iOS, Web

Pros:

  1. Accurate and big enough food database. I found all my main foods and vitamins there.
  2. Simple and user-friendly interface
  3. Tracks about 50 nutrients, including all major vitamins and minerals
  4. Includes barcode scanner that you can use to easily add or update foods.
  5. There are some other features like built-in GPS workout tracker for walking, running and cycling, shopping list tools
  6. Community
  7. Connects with Samsung Health, Apple Health, Google Fit, Fitbit, Garmin

Cons:

  1. Setting up macronutrient targets is a premium feature in MyNetDiary while in some other trackers like Cronometer it’s free. So, for example, if you want to change your macro ratio to get 20% of calories from fat instead of 35% calories from fat then you’ll need to buy a premium version of MyNetDiary while in Cronometer you can do it for free.

2. MyFitnessPal

Price: Free, $19.99 per month, $79.99 per year
Platform: Android, iOS, Web

Pros:

  1. Probably the largest food database but the accuracy of this database is not as good as Cronometer’s or some other trackers because MyFitnessPal allows its users to enter foods while Cronometer and MyNetDiary use food data only from reputable sources.
  2. Community
  3. Includes barcode scanner
  4. Connects with over 40 other apps

Cons:

  1. Food database may be inaccurate because users can also enter foods. Also, I didn’t find all my main foods and vitamins in MyFitnessPal’s database.
  2. Tracks only about 20 nutrients
  3. Less user-friendly interface compared to some other trackers

3. MyPlate

  2. Reminders to log food
  3. Community

Cons:

  1. Food database is not big enough. I didn’t find all my main foods and vitamins there.
  2. Tracks only about 7 nutrients
  3. No option to add custom serving size of the foods. For example, you can only add 1 cup, 50g and not 123g.
  4. Top Food Sources is a paid feature whereas in some other trackers like Cronometer it’s free (this feature allows you to know what foods rank highest in the nutrients you care about)
