Default Best app or website for tracking in maintenance ?

Hello all

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a website for calorie and exercise tracking. I have been using MyNetDiary while losing, and found this excellent, and it linked with my fitbit. I am no longer using the fitbit as I have replaced it with a Polar Loop, and then use my phone with Runkeeper for exercise. I'd like a site that links with them or at least with Runkeeper. If it could cope with European recipes/food - even better. So if anyone has opinions - likes/dislikes, please share

I am finding the balance between what I eat and the exercise a very 'fine line', but am enjoying the challenge! I run my first 10km race on Saturday - it won't be fast but I will try my best to run it all.

Many thanks in advance.

I haven't been tracking for a while, but when I was I used caloriecount for food and mapmyrun for fitness. Caloriecount is pretty good about managing your custom recipes and lets you enter in custom foods. Good luck on your 10k!

I started using Loseit in January and I love it but I don't know how it compares to the others. I do know that if you upgrade to premium you can connect your apps/devices, etc. I got a Jawbone UP band and it communicates with the app.

I use MyFitnessPal and really like it. It links to Runkeeper and many other apps. It also takes recipes in metric units, if that's what you mean by "European recipes."

Why not keep with mynetdiary? It's what I use. I just put in my exercise and don't worry about linking it to anything. Well, it is linked to my withings scale, but that's it.

Oh, and my net diary has an app mynetdiary running that you can link to it that will record any walk or run as long as you have the phone with you and app running.
