Does anyone have any recommendations for a carb-counting android app (with carbs and fiber so that I can get net carbs)? I guess it could count all the macronutrients. I'm just looking for something to track what I eat simply to make sure I'm on target.

Thanks!

For anyone interested ...

I downloaded about 5 different apps yesterday to see how they would work. The one I settled on is from http://www.fatsecret.com. It has an online program that syncs immediately with my android, so I can enter either place. You can scan barcodes or search for ingredients. You can save meals and recipes. One of the cool options is that you can also choose from foods eaten recently. So if you have eggs and bacon today and you also had them yesterday or the day before, you can just check the box and they are added to today's food diary. You can choose four nutrients out of about ten that you want to track (and switch back and forth easily in both the desktop and phone options.) There's even a Net Carb option, so I track calories, fat, protein and net carbs, but could easily see sodium or fiber or whatever if I wanted to. And best of all, it's completely free Smile.

Atkins has an app for both Android and Iphone. It may be what you're looking for.
