Features of Calorie Counter for BlackBerry®
Many MyNetDiary members own a BlackBerry smartphone and MyNetDiary provides a special application for BlackBerry to help you keep track of your diet when on the go. The application works with your MyNetDiary account - use it on the go, and the web site when at home or office.
With a BlackBerry phone, your food log is always available; enter the foods you just ate in a restaurant or exercises you did in a gym. No more evening sessions trying to remember what you ate today!
And you can keep using the regular MyNetDiary.com with your favorite Web browser on your laptop or desktop for the ultimate comfort.
MyNetDiary for BlackBerry is much more than a calorie counter - it's a full-featured food and exercise diary, helping you to plan your diet and nutrition first, and then track daily foods - with only a few clicks!
MyNetDiary for BlackBerry is the ideal food journal, perfect for entering daily foods and exercises anywhere, anytime.
We provide a brief overview of the most important application screens here. There are more screens in the application, but each of them provides built-in Help information, explaining how it works. And if you need further help - use the Support screen to contact us.
Home Screen - Your Day at a Glance
The BlackBerry Home screen shows the summary of your day - how many calories you consumed, burned with exercises, and most importantly - how much more you can eat. It even calculates how fast you would lose weight if every day was like today.A few tips:
- After becoming a MyNetDiary member, plan your diet on the main site using your laptop or desktop - just enter your target weight and date and balance your calories and exercises. Then, you can use BlackBerry to enter and track your foods and exercises anywhere, anytime.
The Meals screen shows breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack foods you ate and their calories. Click on a meal to to add more food entries, or use the search button. Click a food entry to see its details and to edit it.
If you often eat the same foods together, use the Recipe button to create a custom recipe.
You can quickly see the standard nutritional information for any food by clicking the Food Label button.
This is the screen where you enter foods. Simply start typing a food name and MyNetDiary will show foods found as you type. Then tap the food in the list and you are done. This is really fast and easy with BlackBerry. Try it and you'll believe it.
But that's not all. Next time you eat the same food, you only need to type few first letters to find the food - it will be shown at the top of the list, in green. Type the first few letters and tap to select. You are done.

After you select a food on the Food Entry screen, MyNetDiary shows you available serving sizes (in cups, ounces, grams, etc.) of the food. Click a serving to select, or enter an amount and then click the serving.
As always, MyNetDiary remembers your choices so the next time you eat the same food, the amount you ate - such as "0.5 cup" - will be shown on the top of the list in green. Just click it and you are done. It doesn't get any easier.
For any food, you can see the full food label with all nutritional information - just tap the Nutrition button.
