Good App Or Method For Carb Counting?

Good App Or Method For Carb Counting?

Hi all,
I'm just wondering how you all keep track of your carbs? Do you use an app, or the old-fashioned paper and pen approach? If you use an app, which one? Thanks! I'm realizing I've got to get serious about tracking my daily carbs. Catlover.

Been using MyFitnessPal for around 5 years now, its decent. Don't like the fact that you have to pay for better services so I don't use it like it is designed, I reserve that for SparkPeople which I find much better to use (though sadly its days are numbered which is sad since I've been using it since I discovered it in 2006).

I use an Excel Spreadsheet (self created) that tracks "everything" - calories, fat, sat fat, trans fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbs, fiber, sugar and protein (I have daily/weekly targets for most of them).

I do have a "master sheet" with a single portion of everything I typically eat ever so it's a simple "cut/paste" and useful to preplan a day or two in advance if I'm ambitious.

It was a good bit of work to initially set up, but it works well for me.

Hi Catlover. I personally use the Carb Manager but I believe that it was created for Keto users because your carb intake is extremely restricted(less than 30) per day and I am consistently going over my limit but works otherwise.
