Is anyone out there using any of the applications for the itouch that track their intake with any success? I have read many reviews but they are by people on weight watchers and just the general dieter, any body find one we can use? When is iAnimal application/ iJourney scheduled for release?

ianimal haha... thatll be the day. but seriously those apps arent very good. they dont take into account height, weight, average heart rate etc. they really can only give you a ballpark at that. its sort of like the average height/weight chart. according to the one at school for my age, i should weigh about 20 pounds less. its all just averaging. so to sum it up: its not the best method.

ohhh, i thought you meant to use it as a step-counter, im sorry. well id assume itd work just as well as a food diary if you recorded and wrote down all that you ate? im sorry if it doesnt work like that, im unfamilier with the program.

I personally dont use it, as i make meal plans ahead of time. But i do think its a great convenience to have the tracker with you all day. I may use it someday.

I use one called "lose it" on my iphone that I use just to track what I eat then move it to fitday when I get home.
