" Our relatively mundane lives came to a screeching halt on June 21 2023, when I found myself with an eGFR of 48. Certain that it must be a lab error, I repeated the test a week later. It came back at 42, placing me solidly in stage 3b of CKD! I was reeling! I wondered how much time I had left, suspecting I had Lupus Nephritis. I set about reading all I could find about a condition that was completely unfamiliar to me. It was my frantic and desperate search for ANYTHING on phosphorus content of foods that brought me to myfooddata.com. As a lifelong faster and keto eater, I am not quite certain what I would have eaten, had I not stumbled upon this site. Quite possibly, NOTHING, as no product on the market seems to contain this information. As it turns out, I was actually able to feed myself on that day. I wrote a simple "thank you" and hoped somebody would see it and know how grateful I was. Somebody DID! I received the most gracious, generous, kind and supportive reply! Paul not only helped me navigate the site but figured out and entered dozens of labels of my favorite foods, some providing nothing but a few ingredients on the packaging. I could not believe that I was unable to pop a single thing into my mouth without the help of the site. With the help of MyFoodData, however, I could adjust amounts down to single milligrams, so I could fit in the 5 nutrients for which I am now to keep below certain limits. I cannot imagine how many hours it would have taken me every day, time that I was not sure I had, to figure out my food intake.”
"I have very strict limits on protein and potassium. I use the Daily Food Log to plan, log, revise, and record everything I eat. It's enabled me to meet my targets.”
"I was diagnosed as being an Oxalate stone maker and was told I had to focus recording on my daily salt, added sugars, protein, and calcium intake to reduce the chances of getting more stones. The task was overwhelming…I started to manually record every morsel of food that I consumed to keep track of my daily goals and it would take 3-4hrs maybe more than that a day. When I came across Myfooddata.com in my quest to find a site that would keep me on track I was elated! Myfooddata not only has an enormous database of food but I could input my own food choice brands that I use on a regular basis and I could create recipes and daily meal plans I could input with just a click…breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. It calculates the nutritional info I chose for my needs. This program has been for me a God send. I am so grateful for Paul (the heart behind this program) he made my life so much easier and so much healthier.”
"Your app is incredible!!! I'm so glad I found it. I am getting educated on what's in my food.”
