    I haven't been here for awhile because I have been having such a wonderful time with my iPad. I ran across another great diet app. This one is Fatsecret. It is free for Ipad and works and syncs to free online diet program. If you are looking for one you can try check it out:D

    Heading for the city of Apple stores next week. Going to Seattle to visit daughter, grands and great grands. Heading for an apple store with iPad baby. Strange when Apple store becomes such a thrill. Bought our daughter an iPad two wells ago and can't wait to check out our "dueling ipads". My baby will go on Delta in my purse. :D
    By the way I do visit forum everyday just don't post a lot.

    Sounds like you've got a great week coming up!

    Isn't it fun to squeeze those grandbabies? We have a two year old grandson that just loves the iPad. There are lots of free animal, ABC, etc... apps that even little ones can do, with supervision of course....

    Have a fun and safe time... :)

    I've been using the 'LoseIt' app, first on my iPhone and now iPad although it hasn't been upgraded to make use of the iPad capability. It looks very similar and I'd switch except for losing all my history, maybe they'll catch up. It's been a big help in changing my eating habits ( portion size )

    Strange - me too. I am already in great shape but I've been trying to lose an extra 5 pounds around my midsection to get my 8 pack back...and my wife is trying to lose a few pounds as well. This app has been absolutely wonderful, we use it religiously.

    That, exercise, and better meals are also helping.

    I used lose it before

    I really think fatsecret is better than lose it and it's free too and it is for the iPad

    I don't remember how much it was (under $2 I'm sure) but I have an iPhone app (that also works on the ipad quite nicely) called "400 Calorie Fix", and what is great about it, is it lists a lot of restaurants and meals offered at those restaurants that are under 400 calories.

    My wife and I have been eating some truly awesome meals that are like 220 calories a serving (I usually eat two).

    Actually the 400 Calorie Fix will also list a 'Calorie Bomb' like the Meatball Sub at Subway for something like 2000 calories - and that is what I usually eat when we go out.

    YEA!!

    The good stuff you eat when you don't care about calories

    Like 'The Tour Of Italy' at the Olive Garden - awesome, but 1450 calories.

    It is really good.

    It is for the iPad and free. It even has a barcode checker which I have not used. This is not gimmicky like some of them I spent 8.99 on a nutrition app that is not near as good as this. It is free right now so it won't cost anything to try it. I use the expensive app. For my DH who has diabetes and this one for me. FatSecret is the best. It won't be free long because it is way too good. It has restaurants, all the foods you can save meals etc. It syncs with free online version also. I wish I could get my 8.99 back but that won't happen so other than tracking my DH 's carbs I will probably won't use the expensive one. I hope some tries it. Let me know. ;)

    Want to add that it has lot of restaurants. I spent all that money on my net diary and this so much better. I did use lose it on my iPhone and yes it is probably the best simple app for diet but this one for iPad is so complete.

    Well the Lose It does all that stuff too...yes it is low res, but it also seems to be a lot more simple.

    From the comments I am reading though, there is no functionality off line? Is this true? If so, that's a dealbreaker for me.

    You are right Matt. I don't have a problem with that because I don't have an I phone anymore. I do like to plan my meals ahead particularly because we are on specific diets. My DH is diabetic and his VA doc put him on phase 2 of Southbeach. I need to lose to but I like something a little more rigid. I am on protein power. It is easy to plan for both of us. I just add fruit and a little bread to his diet. Other than that we eat same. I carry my pad a lot but if I am going to be away I just email my diet for day and it is a PDF file. That way I can have a copy with me. If I had to add my food on run I would have problem without my iPad and wifi. Just want to tell you uncle Sam is still taking care of the old vets like my DH from Korean war. God Bless All of You
