Bottom Line Summary: Pros & Cons of Each Journal
FitDay is a more robust diet, fitness and mood tracking and reporting tool, but the level of detail could seem a bit much depending on how involved you want to get.
After you input all of your information the tool becomes extremely easy to use, and the integrated diet/fitness/journal/mood tracking tools, calendar, statistics and graphs are second to none.
Their extensive and integrated goal-setting ability is also an important feature that MyFoodDiary does not include.
Their free version is very robust (although the required ads in the free version are placed front and center, which can be distracting), and their monthly subscription fee is a few bucks lower than MyFoodDiary’s.

MyFoodDiary’s tool is much more polished and easy to dive into. While it doesn’t provide the level of customization that FitDay does nor does it provide the ability to track and view reports of your mood, its simplicity makes up for it.
The ability to make food and activity entries, view reports and view food health information while you’re away from your computer is a huge advantage if you own a smart phone.
This feature alone could make the difference between keeping your entries current and letting your food journal tracking goals slip.
Their 7 day free trial provides ample time to explore the tool’s capabilities and decide if it’s right for you.
