Simple Macro - Calorie Counter

Image

Simple Macro was made to help you keep track of your calories along with keeping track of your macro nutrient distribution. Diet is the most important part of reaching your weight goals whether you want to lose weight or gain muscle. Tracking your macros along with calorie counting is vital to achieving the physique you desire.

You can set your macros by percent of calories contributed or by grams. There is a feature to add food that you've eaten into your favorites so you can quickly add the macros from the food and get on with your meal.

Your macro goals as well as the macro nutrients you've already had for the day will be on display the moment you open the app so you can take a quick peak and see if you need to have some food. You can then swipe to the right in order to begin adding the food you need to hit your goals and start working towards the weight change you want.
