I'm entering my food within the s health app but coming from fitbit I find the lack of nutritional information disappointing.
Does anyone know of any integrated alternatives or if I'm just missing how to get to the details?

My S Health gives me at least fat, carbs and protein - and I'm fine with that

I've been using sparkpeople. I think the food logging is way better than s health.

Where do you see that detail within s health? I haven't found it...

Weird...I see it in every food detail I choose. Like when I search for some food, then select it and then, right where I select the size of the portion or gram, the detail is there below the overall calories. You also see it in the list of the food of each meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks) and then again at the summary of each day, just below the calories circle. Maybe this is about version? I got 3.5.5.0036

Is it integrated with s health?

03 Feb
No, my fitness pal does not link with shealth. It does link with fitbit. Those of us who use those two apps enter the exercise name, time, and calories burned for our exercises on workout trainer into mfp, where it syncs with fitbit if those two accounts are linked. I decided to think of it as a new hobby instead of getting frustrated. :-)

No, I was looking for the summary details of the day or meal rather than the individual food. The reporting and overview features provided in s health is really lacking and so far just requires too many add ons and additional apps.

Take a look at the loseit, fitbit,  and Myfitnesspal apps. They may provide you the data readouts you want.

I love My Fitness Pal! It has a good list of food, let's you scan barcodes and also put in your own recipe if it's something you make often. All the information you would find on the box is on the app and it shows you a breakdown of the day with protein fats and carbs. It's a good one and I love it over Lose it.

Thanks. I've used fitbit since it was released but I was really hoping for a single health suite. Maybe in time...
