Carbs & Cals: Visual counter for diet & diabetes for iOS

Developer's Description

Other calorie counting apps boast 5 MILLION+ FOODS, but. news flash. nobody actually eats 5 million foods.

Weight loss (calorie/fat counting). Anyone on the 5: 2 or 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet. Fitness training (boosting carbs or protein). Healthy eating (increasing fibre or fruit & veg). The bestselling and award-winning Carbs & Cals products help thousands of people control their diabetes and weight every year.
