- Web version is totally free.
- Report feedback is phenomenal. Single click to see calorie deficit for the day or caloric breakdown (carbs, protein, fat) for the day.
- Food database is *huge* (this also works as a minus)
Here are some of the things I found to be a minus to Fit Day:
- Food database is *huge*. Enter "bread" and you get 10 pages of breads to review to enter.
- The food diary is not broken down by meal. I know this is a personal preference, but I find the Spark People report much easier to review.
- I have to go too many places to view the important data. Food intake on one screen, caloric breakdown on another screen, calorie deficit on yet a third
I found that it took me longer to navigate my way through the food database than I anted to spend.
I think if you are going to be obsessive about enterring all your food in in the exaqct quantities you are eating, Fit Day can be an invaluable tool. But, if you spend time eating at restaurants and doing a lot of travel, Fit Day makes it tough to enter foods in the food diary. Not becuase they aren't there, but because of the size of the databse itself! I also like the more intuiotive interface of Spark People. It may not provide all of the data as accurately and in depth as FitDay does, but on one screen I can see what I need to see, quickly. So, starting tomorrow, I am going to switch back to Spark People. I am going to attack the intake side of the equation and drop 20 pounds this year.
