MyFitnessPal is hands down the best free app that I’ve used to track your macros on a daily basis. This powerful tool allows you to easily select and record the food you eat. It then gives you a simple chart that tells you exactly how many carbs, proteins and fats you have eaten that day as a % and in grams.
It’s super easy to use and you can save meals that you eat frequently. It allows you to scan bar-codes if a food item is not in the database. You can also upload recipes which can be edited.
Once you set up a few of your regular foods, keeping track of your macros (carb/protein/fat) becomes a matter of a few taps. I’ve been using the free version of MyFitnessPal and find it covers all my needs.
This app is a must for anyone who is serious about weight loss using the
