The app that helps you live a healthier life
Get to know your food
Lunch like your mom served?
Real lunch has gone out of fashion. Most people eat little snacks whenever they’re hungry – all day long. You’ll be amazed how much you eat in a day once you start writing it down!
Calories tells you bluntly how many calories your "little snacks” add up to and also gives you the proportion of fat!
You are what you eat...
Pasty and fat, high blood pressure and short of breath?
What and how much you eat has a direct impact on your body. But as our body fights back against the bad care the effects are not immediately noticeable.
If you take a glance at Calories’ chronological list of foods you have consumed you will probably notice that you have been eating too sweet, too fatty, too salty or simply too much food. Or you might be lacking vital vitamins or minerals. Calories helps you start taking action against this tomorrow – so you will be able to smile back at your reflection. And simply feel good and healthy.
The magical 7000
About 7000 calories...
are how much you need to eat to put on 1kg (2.2lbs) of bodyweight. That does not happen over night, but after 5 weeks of eating a mere 200 calories too much you’ll have added that kilo of fat. And as you might expect: Fast food will achieve this even faster.
Now for the good news:
The reverse is also true! Losing 1kg (2.2lbs) of body fat only requires you too burn or cut back 7000 calories. But this also doesn’t happen over night. So don’t believe in false promises like "Lose 4kg (8.8lbs) in 10 days!”
You can do it!
Don’t fear the magical 7000! Set yourself small, achievable goals; this will give you a sense of achievement and helps you pull through. Calories calculates your personal calories limit, day by day – until you’ve accomplished your goal. And to prevent the infamous yoyo-effect also for the time after you’ve reached your target.
How do you feel?
Measurements are necessary.
When reducing your weight, you will be taking many small steps. You will want to see their effects and not miss even the smallest of achievements. That is why Calories
offers you a whole host of options to measure your body data. You can gather your weight, body fat, blood pressure and blood glucose levels. Use whatever is relevant to your goals and simply hide the rest.
Smart technology helps you out
If you can’t be bothered to note down all your measurements by hand, you will most likely be delighted by the "intelligent” devices created by Withings
or the VitaDock line
of products. They all send your data straight to Calories
You should get moving
The laws of energy
Actually it’s really simple: Calorie consumption and usage need to be balanced or your body will suffer. Calories
follows this principle of balance. That is why you will constantly run into your personal energy balance – as that is what everything depends upon.
Take a few steps more.
Additional activities are the most efficient way of reducing your weight. So boost your exercise. This does not always need to be a trek of three hours - choose what best suits your lifestyle. Calories
offers a wide range of activities that help you improve your energy balance.
The activity trackers by Withings
always let you know your current calorie usage. The data can be sent to Calories
in real time, so your energy balance is always up to date.
Everything is connected
Dare to analyze.
Calories includes a so called "analysis”-window that shows you everything Calories knows about you at a single glance. Your weight, blood pressure, blood glucose levels and your energy balance are displayed using clearly structured graphs. Take a closer look and compare how things have changed over time. You will see correlations and learn new facts about your body. And your successes become clearly visible, too!
Can be shared and used on the go
Calories is available as a family version for several users. Foods can be easily shared by drag&drop. This helps you get moving together.
The iPhone client Cal2Go’s
sync-function makes it the perfect addition to Calories
. It lets you track your nutritional data on the go and synchronizes it with Calories on the go.
By the way...
In the early days Calories was not a lot more than a nutritional diary. Since then we have improved the app in many areas related to health and nutrition. Calories can now be applied to the following issues:
- Raising awareness about calorie consumption
- Focussing on energy balance
- Clarifying the correlation between calorie consumption, energy balance and body data
- Increasing motivation
- Using intelligent technology for easier body data measurements
These additions have turned Calories into a powerful application that can not only be used for weight loss.

Die Software an sich ist gut, mit einigen lästigen Macken. Vor allem nach dem aufwachen Ruhemodus funktioniert die Software nur augenscheinlich, in Wirklichkeit kann man nicht mehr speichern und alle Änderungen sind nach dem Neustart weg. Das ist sehr ärgerlich, weil ich nicht alles mehrmals eingeben möchte bzw gar nicht mehr weiß was ich in den letzten Tagen bereits eingeben oder erstellt habe.
Fasttage können nicht eingegeben werden.Sehr wahrscheinlich haben Sie versehentlich mehrere Installationen von Calories auf Ihrem Computer. In diesem Fall kann es zu Datenbankfehlern kommen. Oder Sie starten Calories aus dem DMG heraus. Das funktioniert dann auch nicht. Zur Problemlösung schreiben Sie bitte an firstname.lastname@example.org und beschreiben das Problem bitte genauer. Ggfls. mit Screenshot.
Wir werden das Problem dann lösen - definitiv.
Desweiteren empfehle ich das Handbuch: http://www.ssl-danholt.de/deutsch/178/178/181001/pdf.html

Derzeit hab ich noch mit ein paar kleine Fehlermeldungen zu kämpfen aber die Software macht eine Soliden Eindruck.
Der Support ist Super schnell.

"I *love* this product. I had never used Calories 2 so I cannot compare, but the combination of Calories 3 + Cal2Go is really great. The software seems very polished and I can't speak highly enough about it. I'm considering writing my first-ever review of the app just to let others know how great it is. I'm eagerly awaiting the 3.1 release for more synchronization options (I use withings, body media and health)."
can you import the food from the fitbit program?
«No, currently not ...because:
Calories' food database stores 44 nutrients per food and is based on the USDA food database maintained by an US governmental institution.
More high quality databases are available as free download for german, swiss, italian and danish foods.
To make Calories use the Fitbit food database, we would need to offer the entire Fitbit database in a Calories compatible file format. This means to skip support of 44 nutrients per food and to skip support of different languages and local foods.
I can not find your app for my ipad or iphone. Where is it and how do I get it. I use a LINK armband and wish to be able to use your app. I have looked in the app store and on the web?
«The iPhone Client for Calories 3 is called "Cal2GO".
Please be aware that Cal2GO is a client for Calories 3. Calories 3 on desktop is needed.
Currently there is no full featured Calories 3 version for iPad.»
I have fogotten my password for my calories 3 on my mac. Do you know how I can get a new one?
«When starting with Calories no password is set. Simply leave the field blank.
If you already set a password but forgot it, you can reveal it with Keychain.app
Keychain.app resides in Applications/Utilities. Launch it and make a search for "Calories".
You can unhide your Calories password by clicking the i button (info) and entering your Mac login password.»
Is it possible to import data from wahoo fitness to Calories 3? If yes, how can be done?
«Not yet possible. This feature is work in progress. Originally we planned it for Calories 3.1, but because of issues with the Wahoo API we had to shift that. We hope to have Wahoo import available in late spring.»
Please fill out the form. We will contact you as soon as possible.
