Hi everyone.

I'm new here (just found this web site about an hour ago) and really liking all the features (menu planer, printable shopping list, community boards, other web site stuff!) I see. I almost signed up for the trimdownclub but then read some reviews about it and found this web site in those reviews so had to come check it out.

I especially like that there are diabetic tools on this web site, that is EXACTLY what I was looking for in addition to tracking food & exercise.

I have to say great job on the web site. I found an app for my smartphone last week called "MyFitnesspal" that is sort of like this site. I have to say I do love their phone app. No crashing, easily scans barcodes and records foods I've eaten. I am considering switching to this web site's mobile app but have seen some not so good reviews. I don't mind the part where I have to pay to get this app, but what I don't want is for it to crash my phone and cause any problem with freezing. Does anyone here have anything good or bad to say about the mobile app?

All I know is that I am much more likely to scan the bar code of a food to enter it then I am to sit down and type all the info in, since I've had great success with "MyFitnesspal" in that regard. Once you experience a technological breakthrough like that there is no going back to the old ways of manually entering data in emoticon

anyway, I'm sure even if I don't end up using this site to track my food choices there is still much info that I can still explore for help.

So, to the makers of this web site, THANK YOU very very much. Good job!
