What’s NEW in the App?

In 2021, we made the decision to change the Carbs & Cals app to a subscription model in order to make the app financially sustainable, and pay for the huge ongoing costs to maintain the app. We’re committed to investing the income to continually improve the app for our loyal users, adding new features, food and content to the app each month.

Visit this page often to see what’s NEW and IMPROVED in the app, and check out the Foods in the App page for a list of popular foods, brands and restaurants included.
