Easy to use and comprehensive diet software designed to help you take control of your weight.

The Perfect Diet Tracker includes access to a large database of over 200,000 food items with no ongoing subscription fees or club memberships.

5***** Macworld Editors Choice.

√ Create a personal diet plan

You can let the diet tracker suggest a personal diet plan based on your current situation and the targets you want to achieve or enter your own custom diet plan. The app puts you in control.

√ Track what you eat with the food diary

Track your diet adding items you eat or drink to the food diary. With over 200,000 products in the food database adding items using the smart search is quick and easy.

If you cannot find a product with the smart search you can quickly add it using a form specifically designed for the product labelling in your location.

√ Let your Mac do the hard work

The app takes care of the calorie counting and exercise tracking for you, monitoring your calorific and nutritional intake. Stay within the targets and you will achieve the weight loss you want.

Carbohydrates, protein, fat, sodium and sugar intake can also be monitored automatically so you can check you are maintaining a healthy and balanced diet. 

√ Multiple users?

No problem and no extra charge. Each user can set a password so other users cannot see what you are eating or currently weigh.

You can use the right-click menu to copy items and meals between users so entering meals you have taken together is even faster.

√ Full international support

The app can work in pounds, kilos or stones and accepts user measurements in feet and inches or meters. When adding products you can work with standard serving sizes, grams, ounces, kilos and more. Would you prefer to work with calories or kiloJoules? You decide.

The international food database contains products for countries throughout the world including the US, Canada, UK, Europe, Australasia and more. Our database is reviewed by humans to maintain the highest possible degree of accuracy and quality and avoid duplicates.

√ Add exercise to receive additional calories.

The app includes an extensive list of exercises you can add to the diary to receive calorie credits.

√ Work with recipes and groups

The recipe and group feature lets you group ingredients and enter them into your diary, perfect for adding your own home-cooked meals.

Insert a whole recipe into your diet or just a fraction (e.g. 1/2 a pie) and the app will calculate the calories for you.

√ Smart search

The smart search can use its own internal database or search the internet for additional products. The smart search learns as you use it so the more you use the app the quicker it gets, bringing products you have used before to the top of search results and correcting spelling mistakes to help you find what you are really looking for.

√ Reporting and Graphs

You can monitor your progress with the included reports and graphs. If you need to take a report with you, just print it off!

ⓘ Will the diet work for me?

The calculations used by this app work for the vast majority of people. If you are an extreme athlete, or have a very high body mass index ('morbidly obese, category III') the app can still track your diet however it will be unable to suggest a daily calorific allowance. If you fall into either group you should consult your doctor to discuss a suitable calorific allowance and nutritional profile and enter these manually.

ⓘ Product Support

We believe the Perfect Diet Tracker is quite simply the best app of its kind available and want to keep it that way!

Makes You Think - I love love love this Perfect Diet Tracker. It is really educating me as to what food choices I am making. The pie charts allow me to see how much fat, carbs. proteins etc. I am consuming and allows me to make my own adjustments. It really is teaching me to be smarter about my choices. Its one thing to have someone else telling me what and how much I should eat but this program is breaking it down so that I am the learning seeing and doing. I used another tracker called Diet Power which is very similar to this one but they do not produce a Mac version so I was very excited when I saw this one, this one is acutually easier to use. Some people might not want to have to enter foods that may not be listed but there are about 90,000 food choices listed in The Perfect Trackers Data Base so I am finding that very few foods have to be hand entered.The program is so easy to use and if entering a few foods is required, well I feel that I am worth the effort. Anyway its like keeping a food diary very little effort is involved. Even Weight Watchers encourages its members to keep a food diary. I have also done Weight Watchers Points Plus not really being helped to understand the Point values, just meeting my point requirements each day and paying a monthly fee. I did lose weight but I would rather keep the fees and be the one in control of my understanding nutrition and living a healthier lifestyle. Thank you for making this program available I am really enjoying it.

Review by Juanchol31

Not what I wanted - I really, really, REALLY wanted to love this app specially for its cost. But I find it not friendly to users. I do not understand what to do when I open it, and when I try to add products I NEVER find the product I want. So, I have to add a new one and I don't know how many calories it has if it's just a mix of fruits and juice that I bought. I wanted to be able to have a schedule for foods, because my doctor gave me one. But ANYWAYS. I feel bad now about the money I wasted with this.
