Abs are made in the kitchen. This is why Runtastic launched a new, easy-to-use food tracking app that perfectly complements our portfolio of running and fitness apps. Because it’s the combination of a balanced diet and exercise that helps you achieve the body of your dreams.

Reach your goal with Balance

Why is food tracking so effective? A food diary comes with many benefits to help you reach your ideal weight. Here are just a few things you’ll learn from tracking your meals:

1. Am I getting enough protein?
2. Is there too much fat in my diet?
3. Am I eating less than I think? (But probably the wrong things?)
4. Does snacking add many calories to my daily balance?

Keeping a food diary is fascinating as it allows you to learn a lot about yourself and your eating habits. Do you finally want to shed a few pounds, build lean muscle or feel energized in the morning? Download Runtastic Balance and get started today!

    Have you guys considered putting in an option where you can add your meals? in a sense of adding ingredients once,and then if you have that 3-4 times a week,you can just add your kinda “favourite” meals. I love the app,but that’s a thing i’m missing i feel. having very different foods,and love to test out new meals,but there’s also favourites. copy paste a full ingredients meal (not having to find them individually over and over again),done. 😉 good job tho,and thank you,definitely made me start food tracking properly. (did it for 2 months,but literally just writing them down on a “paper”,no measuring purposes.

      Dear Daniel, thanks for your honest! This feature is not available at the moment but stay tuned for updates 😉

        or better…. why not add a “blank” text,which you could customize in the sense of…let’s say i’ve eaten 100g of something which contained this and this % of the 3 main elements (carbs,protein,fat)? The implemented data of foods is amazingly huge,but there will always be things missing. 😉

  • Please keep the search simple and separated from custom user-entered food, or at least have some kind of quality measure active. I really like the simplicity right now as there aren’t really any random or wrong submissions. It can sometimes almost be impossible to find the right “generic” foods on services like Lifesum. Maybe you can keep generic / verified food items at the top of the list, or have an option to save a filter to turn off custom food? Would be great. But great app already! Well done.

    On a side note it would also be great with cross integration between the apps as I can see some others have suggested as well. 🙂
