It appears to be shut down - so sad, I've been using this since may 2004!

Hello everyone,

I must regretfully inform you that beginning in November, our calorie and activity tracking app will shut down for good.
"Why is this happening?" - At the end of November, there is a technical requirement to migrate the site to a certain computer language called PHP 8 (we are currently on PHP 7). Unfortunately, the code that was used to create the app is not compatible with the new version of PHP and the creators of the app have long since departed.
The good news is that the forums will remain, so any friends you've made and any discussions you're part of will still be here for the foreseeable future!

Me too. It was so useful. Sad to see it go.

Log into Fitday like you usually do on your computer and then type in "www.fitday.com/fitness/FoodLog.html". Your food log and history should appear. I have been able to access my food log and continue adding to it. Only trick is I have to login first and then i click my bookmarked foodlog. Someone else in another forum here posted it, which is how i found out. I too was devastated as I don't like any other other apps out there and i prefer the desktop version.

OH MY GOSH, thank you! I've been using this desktop tracker since maybe 2005? It was really hitting me hard that it had disappeared.

I lost 18 years! of saved food and logs. ( Since 2004. I don't know how they have me listed as join date as 2013, )
Go to Cronometer...(google it -they won't let me post a URL)
Someone else here recommended it. Cronometer is a little wiggy in its "modern" design, takes a bit to figure out how to outwit its quirks. But with patience, it's doable.
And once you got down how to maneuver Cronometer - it works -- and now that I do - I like it better than Fitday's food logs.
Cronometer must put people's individual food creations into its mass food database.
I would say that most of the brands for which I had or would have had to create a new food nutrition panel already exist in Cronometer's database.
And I don't just mean mainstream stuff.
I eat almost strictly organic and obscure brands are already in Cronometer's database.
I was feeling nostalgic for Fitday for a while -- but now it just feels like it was "old-fashioned" - evidenced by the fact that whoever built it up left Fitday long enough ago that Fitday just abandoned it.
I suspect when Fitday reads my posts, they'll delete them and ban me.
So at least check it out before they do.
