Built on a solid scientific foundation, MyNetDiary incorporates guidelines and recommendations of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the American Diabetes Association, the American Heart Association, the Institute of Medicine, and uses common foods from the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Data Central. We strive to provide our users with evidence-based nutrition and fitness information.
- Weight-maintenance calories are calculated per Estimated Energy Requirements (EER) formulas provided by the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies. The app also allows for alternative calorie estimations, such as Mifflin-St Jeor, Katch-McCardle, or indirect calorimetry.
- MyNetDiary calculates target daily calories for up to two pounds per week rate of weight loss. If you recommend a different daily calorie target for your patient or client, a user may choose to enter the daily calorie target manually.
- App uses The Compendium of Physical Activities Tracking Guide.
MyNetDiary’s food database is accurate and reliable with all verified foods. Other trackers use crowdsourced entries, resulting in duplication, outdated/discontinued items, and inaccuracies, making it more difficult to find and log the right foods, recipes, and meals. This impacts the respective calories and nutrients.
No advertisements on MyNetDiary!
MyNetDiary perceives sponsored advertisement as unhelpful and counterproductive to user success as it distracts users. No paid commercial content appears in MyNetDiary, even in the free version. Other apps often become crowded with highly-targeted ads about diet trends, supplements, and weight-loss tools.
Community support and expert guidance
MyNetDiary’s blog, dietitian-moderated community forums, and social media provide practical and experienced guidance along with professional and peer support that is helpful to the overall success of users.
Customized nutrient tracking
MyNetDiary tracks eight nutrients in the free version and more than 50 nutrients with Premium membership, including all major vitamins and minerals. The app allows customized macronutrient ratios and offers fixed or cycling macro settings. In addition, users can set personalized targets, customize their own dashboard, and generate reports tailored to their unique health goals and nutrient and fitness needs.
Fast and Easy Food Logging
MyNetDiary has a fast and easy food-logging process. It employs numerous time-saving tools and shortcuts to save you time.
- Lightning-fast search with immediate results.
- MyNetDiary remembers your search history and highlights previously-recorded foods, so you can complete a search in just a few key taps without typing the item’s full name.
- On the Food Entry screen, MyNetDiary shows all servings available and even your previous serving entries. Quickly enter amounts with one tap.
Staple Foods includes over 1000 general food items strategically selected by MyNetDiary, to make it easier to find what you need. The staples database includes foods commonly used in cooking. Carefully handpicked by dietitians and experienced cooks, the catalog is an indispensable tool for logging basic foods and recipe ingredients.
Users can scan the barcode of products and upload photos of food labels to the app. The food item gets quickly added or updated by MyNetDiary.
Recipe and meal planning features available with Premium membership
- Premium recipes: Over 500 dietitian-approved Premium recipes are available and entered into the app. Applicable filters include food allergies or specific diet plans such as Mediterranean, Keto, Vegetarian, Vegan, and DASH.
- Recipe Import feature: Import recipes from almost any website.
- Custom recipes: Create and add personal custom recipes for tracking easily.
- Ability to modify and save both Premium and imported recipes per preference and nutrient needs.

- Use the app's Premium Menus or personal recipes to map out meals in advance.
- Professionals can create and share customized meal plans with clients.
MyNetDiary fitness features
MyNetDiary is the only diet app with a built-in, clear, and simple GPS tracker to accurately and automatically record your workouts right in the app, calculating calories, distance, and workout time.
MyNetDiary can automatically account for additional expended calories during daily walking. Users can select the sedentary activity level and still get rewarded with calories burned based on their number of steps.
Comprehensive support for diabetes and pre-diabetes
MyNetDiary Premium includes an option to track health metrics for individuals with diabetes and pre-diabetes. In addition to blood glucose readings, it also tracks and charts insulin, medications, A1C, blood pressure, and blood cholesterol, all in one place. For proper blood glucose monitoring, users can specify target ranges, such as pre-meal and two-hour, post-meal target ranges. They can add timestamps, assign labels to readings to categorize them, add notes, set blood glucose reminders, and more.
MyNetDiary Premium provides options to track medications, test results, measurements, and symptoms. Some users may want to monitor specific health and diet-related information, for example, hunger levels or quality of sleep. MyNetDiary Premium provides custom trackers where users can define any number of situations or experiences, then enter and chart their daily values. MyNetDiary also supports post-bariatric surgery patients with easily customized nutrient targets and a convenient water tracker right on the dashboard.

Love this app!
I love that I can scan my food packages and it uploads for me. I love that I can customize my dashboard and what nutrients I want to track. I love that there’s a place for my notes, exercise input, water intake, I can change to macronutrients and diabetic dashboards and see the nutrients that matter for whatever it is that I need to monitor! Not to mention it’s compatible with my Apple Watch and easily accessible online! Great job! Can’t wait to see what other features they add in the future ! I definitely will be using it with my personal training clients!

Favorite food tracker
I’m a registered dietitian and this is my favorite app to track my food intake on. I love the presentation, simplicity, and ability to make my own recipes. I’ve found this very handy in teaching and maintaining my health goals.

Easy to use
Have lost 80 lbs, kept it off for over 5 years and find MyNetDiary app really helpful. It represents a call to consciousness around healthy choices. My doctor suggested it and is delighted with my improved blood pressure, lower cholesterol and now normal HbA1C!

Helping my patients everyday
I use the existence of the free app to engage my overweight teen patients and parents. Not only did you help me personally to finally lose weight, (I paid for premium that year). You are helping low resource youth and families feel like change is possible with your free version. I can’t thank you enough for giving me a tool in a nearly impossible battle for the health of our children.

Excellent App for patients, doctors, and everyone in general
I cannot stop saying how amazing is this app. As a physician myself I have never encountered such a complete app where not only one can meet weight loss goals, but do so in a safe manner, with excellent recommendations by expert nutritionists, that above all make sure the process is safe for you, so not to go into dangerous fad diets, unhealthy BMIs. As well, it has been such a learning experience for me to realize how many empty, dangerous amounts of sodium and dangerous fats one can consume thinking you are eating healthy. It increases your awareness and helps you recognize healthier options in food while feeling satisfied. The free app is very good BUT the paid app is unbelievable. I am not one to be spending money as many a time it tends to be a completely useless purchase, not with this! This app is awesome. It is so accurate since you have an option to create your own recipe and it will calculate the nutrients for you by portions. I recommend this to anyone who not only wants to lose or gain weight but to anyone who wants to eat healthier to decrease the risk of so many preventable diseases such as diabetes type 2, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, and many more.

Great app. Helped me tremendously!
My Doctor showed me this app, because I was awaiting spine surgery and all of my activities were curtailed and I was starting to gain weight. By being conscious of my calorie intake I was able to lose 20 lbs. in spite of my lack of activities since my spine surgery. It will definitely help my healing process by not carrying extra weight. I'm the type of person who can look at food and gain weight. Great app, helped me tremendously!!

I am a medical doctor giving advice to my patients regarding weight management for years. Among all products I have seen this app is the most helpful, impactful and user-friendly app I have seen. I personally use this app and love it. I introduce this app to my patients who want to lose weight or ones who want to eat a more balanced and healthy diet and the feedback is great.

I taught nutrition at the college level for 30 years. I worked for Nutrisystem as a counselor and have been a private weight loss and eating disorder counselor for 25 yrs. I love love love this app. I have downloaded several apps, but this is the only one I use. I used to spend hours going over clients logs, now this app does all the work for me. I make all clients download it on our first meeting. I cannot imagine a better app. My clients also adore it!
