Have been at maintenance for over 6 years and still track my food on myfitnesspal.com - had been on it for a while before joining Spark and didn't want to switch. For me, it works, but I really just want to track what I ate and not bother too much with the calories. Truthfully most breakfasts and lunches are about the same and I stick right around 2,000- 2,300 calories a day most days. with all the exercise the net calories are usually in the 1500 range.
Just read an article in the Washington Post that there are some apps out there that let you just track your food.
Not sure if I'm going to switch but this one sounds very interesting:
"Ate Food Diary is an app that, from my experience, lives up to the description on its website: “It’s visual, mindful and nonjudgmental. Instead of calories, we focus on how meals make you feel."
the article mentions several others. It's good to see that some apps out there are looking at options for just looking at the numbers. for me the numbers work, but they don't for everyone.
As we know from Spark, there isn't one size fits all!
