The site is very slow and frustrating. It frequently doesn't work at all since you have to try to get into the site multiple before succeeding and then can't do anything else. I have gone back to writing my foods in a journal -- simple & much much faster.

I have upgraded to Premium , still like this site enormously but its too slow . Says its added food yet hasn't !.
I am becoming impatient . So many people eat low carb diets and subtract fiber from the carbs it would be great if that could be a part of the log.

I have tried repeatedly to get off their constant bombardments of emails and cannot. I use My Fitness Pal which is much easier to use. Don't sign up.

A terrific FREE site /journal which allows you to enter custom foods taking nutritional information off the packages as well as Fitdays menu of foods and adding into your log. Tracks progress over time for calories , carbs , activities , vitamins and minerals.mood journal is surprisingly useful . I choose to measure by ounce but there are other options . My Doctor can see this if I choose to share it . The very best aid to controlling food consumption ever. The site is fast , my only complaint is that I can't stay logged in for the day and have to log in multiple times . That is annoying but not enough to make me reach for the chocolate !.

I only just started using this site, but I'm amazed at all the features it has for free! Food logs, activity logs, mood logs, journals, statistics/graphs, body measurements... I'm in love! I think I will strongly consider paying for a premium membership.

One thing I noticed people saying is that the site is very slow... I have really bad internet (the lowest offered by my provider) and I've had no problem with loading speed. It seems just as fast as any other site to me. Maybe I've been lucky, or maybe they updated their system?

Slowest website in the world. Takes literally over 10 mins to add 1 food item to the log. Who has time for that?

I've used FitDay off and on for a few years and it's especially helpful when you need to get yourself organized. I have done Weight Watchers but when I'm not on their program officially, I will still use this site to track my food. As for an earlier comment that this is a rip-off and they auto-deduct from your banking account when you subscribe - it says this in the sign-up and is no different than Weight Watchers who do the same thing. It's very easy to cancel. However, the free version is worth trying out first before subscribing. Check out the personal reports to see how you've progressed or where you had problems. It's a great tool!

It's a really great website! it's minimal effort to put in what you ate all day and can also track your mood, activities, and has a journal. Personally i know that i tend to eat more when i am not feeling so great that day, so it has helped me keep better track of my moods and realize that what i thought was hunger is actually something more like loneliness, diappointment or sadness. I've programmed in a lot of the foods i eat regularly and it's taught me to be better at paying attention to what i eat. i pay attention to if i'm using a tbsp of butter on my toast or 3 tbsp of butter. Also, for late night cravings it's a deterent for me bc i don't feel like getting up and putting more food into fit day!! It also tracks alcohol usage which is good to know.

I have FitDayPC on my desktop, but want it on my laptop also while traveling. How do I get it on my laptop as well as my desktop at the same time?

Candy Rudy is working Oay for me. It allows my trainer to view what I am eating and then make suggestions. BUT, does not have enough bandwidth to support their 5.1 million members. VERY SLOW - and I am a Premium Member. Kind of like AOL when they over sold their system and had a mass exit of their membership. Make note FitDay.

I went on fitday november 11 2008 and started at 209lbs. By April of 2009 I was down to 170lbs. I lost my brother that month, and curved my sadness with beer and food...fastforward 2010, I'm going back on Fitday today at 190. This program does work and doesnt cost a thing!

I love this site. I have used it on and off for about 2 years and during that time I have lost 85 pounds!!! The first time I lost 40, then 35 and now 10 more pounds and still going! I take a break every 5 months or so! This site is soooo easy to use... very user friendly and packed with info. I've never had any problem losing information even after being away for 3 to 4 months!! I've tried some of the others and they are not as good as this one. Give it a go... I'm sure you'll love it as much as I do!!!

Easy to use and a real eye-opener!

Great way to find your bmr, plan meals ahead of time, track weight and body measurements, and even add your own custom foods. I strongly suggest a food scale, and if you use Firefox get Abduction! to take snapshots of things like average weekly macros or caloric intake.

I lost ten pounds in ten weeks using FitDay. Weighing myself daily helped me to be accountable for what I was eating. The catalog of foods does a great job of helping me make good choices. I think this system would be great for individuals who like to make their own choices and be in control of their diet and exercise plan. I enjoy logging my activities and food. Measuring food with measuring cups and teaspoons may not work for everyone.

Keeping track of everything I eat and seeing how much I use in energy keeps me aware and active. This is a great site - I'm considering buying the package.
