CR (Calorie Reduced) diets require a lot of information to perform optimally. In order to restrict caloric intake, but remain healthy, users of the diet must track their vitamin, mineral, and protein intakes with great care.

We aim to provide a complete solution to the CR dieter. Current open-source diet-tracking applications fall short in some vital respects. Either they are not detailed enough, or they suffer from critical usability flaws. We believe that a diet tracker must be effortless to operate for the activity for which it will be used most of the time, keeping track of the foods eaten in a particular meal.

To this end, we are developing CRON-O-Meter, an application that will take into account good usability design and dense functionality. It will provide diet advice, track consumption and exercise, and generally assist in all aspects of a CR diet.

Features:

  • Includes nutritional information on over 7000 foods from the latest USDA sr19 datasources.
  • Food editor for creating custom foods.
  • Recipe editor to create new foods built from sets of other foods
  • Import and export foods and recipes to share with other users
  • Set personal targets for each nutrient, or use the official DRIs
  • Track and chart your biometrics (weight, blood pressure, temperature, etc...).
  • Generate detailed reports on your nutritional information

"Tried it, shopped around further with others, came back to it!"

I was looking for a tool that gave me some accountability, tracking, and more importantly some additional nutrition information beyond fat and calcium! Such as lycopene, omegas, etc. At first, I thought it was nice/okay, but I still had to hand enter in some additional stats to make it work for me (rather than it "being there" already). At that time there was only a free download application. I use Mac and PC at home and a work computer so I really needed an online version.

I left it and looked into others - FitDay, FitOrbit (with an online trainer), LiveStrong (kind of nice food list-wise but no extensive nutrition even with purchased product, and NO response to 4 support emails), etc. I found all have a VERY hard time giving more extensive nutrition information and nothing had come close to what Cron-O-Meter capabilities, so after months - I went back to their site and was delighted to find they are now online!!!! I can track from any of my computers now and be in sync!

Pros
  • Fairly good supply of current foods, but ease in adding any new ones you want with full nutrition detail of not.
  • Easy to manipulate to your needs.
  • Tracks exercise (Despite earlier review from someone).
  • Online to track from anywhere!
Cons
  • None at the moment.......
  • Online is a bit harder to understand how to add data, etc., had I not downloaded app before, so I suggest the application to get used to it first before going online.
