The Belly Fat Cure Sugar and Carb Counter by Jorge Cruiser is a diet app released by Oceanhouse Media.
This application is a diet control and tracking application, it also has some advice and example meals for using on the diet.
This is a really interesting application for tracking this type of diet. It is specifically designed for this diet, so will not be of use for other diets.
For those who do not know the diet looks at exercise and controlling the level of sugar and carbs in your diet. For me, the carbs were limited to about 125g and Sugar is limited to 15g. On the first day I failed at breakfast as I ate an apple that past the sugar limit immediately.
The Tracking is solid, with the ability to see the daily changes in your weight and belly size.
The Food list is the best section of the application, I was really impressed by the number of foods and drinks available and the control you have over the quantities eaten/drunk. Even where the food is missing it is easy to add a new once, and apart from the quantity types is great. I would have liked to have seen with some of the quantities options for 1/4 or 1/2 options (like cups of liquid).
The diet side of the application is a little lacking, and really just gives you the basics and then suggests you look at the authors website for more resources and information.
The user interface is good, and you are able to track more than one user at a time. The food list is easy to navigate. The diet side was the only section that disappointed me.
On the upside:
- The Food List is excellent
- Very useful application for tracking / controlling this diet.
On the downside:
- The “Diet” section could have been done more like a book, then the vertically scrolling list.
- Notice message shown every time you log in, I know already.
Overall, this is an interesting application and works well. I am not so sure about the diet itself, I do not think it is the one for me, but anyone who has heard of it and wish to give it a try should certainly get this application. I think that others offering diet programs should take a look at this application and see what OceanHouse have done with it, and learn or hire them.
