Similarly, Premera Blue Cross is representing payors on the list. It just recently launched Serve It Up!,  a nutrition-focused online platform and app created in partnership with social platform maker Wellness Layers and nutrition guidance program Guiding Stars. Serve It Up! is not a calorie counter, instead it's an app to offer nutritious suggestions to users who are grocery shopping or cooking.

This food tracking app from MyNetDiary boasts a catalogue of 500,000 foods — 200,000 added by the company with the other 300,000 uploaded by users. It has an autocomplete search function and remembers foods that the user searches frequently. In addition to food tracking, the app has capabilities for tracking weight and exercise. It also has an online community supported by a registered dietitian. To input food, the app offers a barcode scanner, food database, internet search access and water tracking.

Livestrong's MyPlate Calorie Tracker 

MyPlate

Livestrong’s Calorie Tracker (which has both a paid and free version) helps users track diet, weight loss and fitness goals by watching calories and exercise. Categories listed in the app include breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, exercise and water. Entering exercise subtracts the amount of calories from the daily total. The app also displays daily fat, carbohydrate and protein intake. It also has goal setting and reminder tools.
