Keto dieting just got a whole lot easier with the August release of the Carb Genius app for iOS from MyNetDiary Inc., makers of one of the original calorie-counting apps. “The pandemic has reshaped how consumers eat, shop, pursue physical fitness and seek out expert nutritional advice,” says MyNetDiary Inc. CEO and founder Sergey Oreshko. “Our goal with Carb Genius was to build the easiest and most comprehensive keto and low-carb app on the market. It’s more important than ever to empower our users with the ability to customize their diet plans and provide them with the knowledge and support they need to look and feel their best.”
More than a carb calculator, Carb Genius is a one-stop destination for living a healthy low-carb lifestyle. Developed alongside a team of registered dietitians who provide support and motivation, it also includes hundreds of quick-and-tasty low-carb and Keto recipes—most Premium recipes clock in at about 20 minutes of prep and cooking time, perfect for time-pressured people (and who isn’t, these days?).
But recipes are just the tip of the iceberg. Offering a healthy and scientifically-proven approach, the app covers all aspects of following a diet, from planning to tracking and results analysis, including a Virtual Coach tool that promises to guide users with personalized diet advice. The Carb Genius food tracker, which boasts a library of over one million verified foods, makes it easy to log each meal in seconds. And, users can even log meals by taking a photo using state-of-the-art image recognition technology. Beyond carbs, members can also track up to 38 other nutrients in the foods they eat and create reports and charts to allow them to see the big picture of their diet or zoom in on the details. Additionally:
- The app can be linked with fitness trackers from Fitbit and Garmin and also features a built-in GPS tool for outdoor exercise tracking.
- The Autopilot feature suggests diet tweaks to help users reach their goals faster.
- Carb Genius can be completely integrated with iOS Health to sync foods, nutrients, daily steps, workouts, body weight, water, heart rate, and more.
- A registered dietitian blog, library, and community allows users to read about the latest low-carb science and learn safe, effective dieting techniques.
All essential functions are available in the free app, and a Premium subscription includes Premium Recipes, Autopilot, macros & calorie cycling, micronutrient tracking, body measurement tracking, integrations with Fitbit and Garmin, and a shopping list tool. Premium subscriptions are $59.99 for a year or $8.99 monthly. For more information visit MyNetDiary.
