I really like it. It's not free to be fair, but I've given the 5 day free app and website trial a go and am seriously considering signing up for a few reasons.

It is more uk based and I like the pictures to make finding foods easy.

You can see the cals per portion before you log it on your diary, so if it doesn't match the food you ate then you can tell before you add it.

It synchs in a more sensible way with my fitbit. I want my fitbit linked, but mfp always over estimates the steps I'm going to use in the day, gives me calories then takes them back again in retrospect the next day.

It has different price choices, but I'm liking the 3 months for the price of 2 as it means it's approx £2 a week - a lot cheaper than the likes of ww and no faffing with points.

It still has a forum and a space to make notes about your day - which I use in advance to plan my meals for the day.

Not selling the site, honest, but I've just been browsing back through old threads, found someone recommending it and want to say thanks. smile

how many calories does it allow a 9 and a half stoe woman to have a day?

i used to use mfp and lost weight on it but it was too extreme imo. 1200 a day, unless I earned extra cals doing exercise! that was fine on days when I did a massive workout but i couldn't manage that every day, and for me, 1200 didn't seem enough. even making really good food choices i was always starving.

It has given me 1400 cals a day, then uses my fitbit to add on another 200 or 300 cals depending on how active I've been. You can log any exercise or manually enter steps from a pedometer, it doesn't have to be fitbit.

Yup, 1400 is the minimum allowance on NC. You choose your rate of loss (0.5, 1, 1.5 or 2lbs per week), and if that would take you under 1400 kcal, you need to make up the difference with exercise.

I'm signed up till November, and it's definitely been worth the money so far. I found MFP a real chore, but I've lost 1.5 stone so far on NC.

I've been a member on and off with varying degrees of success. I find it the cheapest and easiest to understand diet, so I'm going to rejoin today if anyone wants to 'add' me
