JXCirrus CalCount for Mac

Editors' Review

by   / March 26, 2014

JXCirrus CalCount for Mac is a program you can use to track your daily calorie intake and exercises to help you reach your fitness goals. While you may have to put in a bit of time upfront to create a list of your favorite foods and common exercise routines, that hard work will pay off in the end when you can enter your entire day's information in just a few minutes.

The first time you open JXCirrus CalCount, you'll have to enter your height and weight, so the app can calculate your Body Mass Index and generate a target calorie range for you. Once that's done, you're ready to start recording your meals and building up your food list. The interface is a little clunky, with tabs across the top for Diary, My Foods, Food Database, and My Exercise. You can jump in and try adding meals right away if you'd like, but the app does come with an extensive Help file that will save you a lot of time when you're trying to get used to the interface. In the Diary section, you'll see a large chart with rows in which you can enter your meals, and columns to record the number of calories, fat, and other nutrients each item contained. While the app does come with an extensive Food Database that includes common items with their nutrition information already filled in, you'll likely have to enter in a lot of that information for the foods you eat on a regular basis. As you enter these, though, they're added to the program, and you can use them on subsequent entries with just one click.

Whether you're just trying to keep to a healthy diet, or you're training hard for some type of athletic event, JXCirrus CalCount is a good tool, but it's not for the casual user. As long as you don't mind putting in a good amount of work setting up the app, you'll be rewarded in the long run by this free program.
