I need to lose 2 stone and sticking to a diet never works.

So I want to just keep a log of my food in a bid to just eat less.

Can anyone recommend a good app for logging food?

My fitness pal.
You can scan the barcode of most foods on there, adjust portion size and it will tell you the calories and other nutritional values.
I input any excercise and it also counts steps.

Second my fitness pal.
You can also log water and exercise when you're ready.

I made decent progress on Lose It. It was only the free version but it's great.

Definitely MFP.

It has thousands of foods in its database and is really easy to use.

I’ve lost 3st 4lb in a year using it!

Strange. I found My fitness Pal really painful and laborious to use. Tried it twice for a few days and gave up.

I agree regarding My Fitness Pal, I'm no good with free foods etc on other diet plans, I need to know when to stop and MFP helps with that plus it really made me think if I really wanted to eat the calories.

Thank you. I'll give MFP a try.
