Haven't tracked for ages, since my first few weeks primal and then every now and again for a few of months just to make sure I was on the right track (found I was usually under eating calorie wise as I was so satiated). But it was certainly very useful and something that I recommend to friends and family just making the switch, but having a CW oriented tool like brightspark or fitday has often been confusing for newbs so this is much needed. Well done
My one request at this point would be the smart phone synching app, a lot of work as one for each platform is needed please (I bounce between iphone, android and WP7 - currently loving the WP7) ;-)
Will give it a go and add any recs I can think of the the list.
Used for the past couple of days and the thing that bothers me the most is that the info I want (all the technical details) are at the bottom of the page while the journal is up at the top. A preference setting would be best since some might like it better the way it is, but I like having the pie chart and macro/micro breakdowns at the top.
Ability to edit the serving in the journal, macros for each journal entry (cal,prot,fat,carb) and specify which vitamin/minerals you want to track.

People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.
Customizing the journal report is a great idea, I've heard the same complain from some other people. It's complicated but I'm going to give it a try (without complicating the user experience for the others).
I'm definitely working on being able to edit the servings and adding macros to the entries.
Thanks for taking the time to try it and giving me your feedback.
Great webapp. It's already highly usable as it is. It's already changing how I look at my daily primal diet.
I think you should keep the same simple type of layout to avoid scaring away new folks. A lot of the 'extras' mentioned would be nice, but could clutter up the interface (unless they're placed in an 'advanced' tab).
My only request is the one already stated by others: I'd like to be able to store meals/recipes to bring in. Especially when my typical morning smoothie has 5 ingredients.
You've got tbsp for coconut oil and lard, but when I just tried to add "dripping" there wasn't a spoon type measurement available.. just grams, lbs or oz.
But I've just realised that if I search for "tallow" tbsp is there
Oh, and being able to edit the measurements used for food items that you added to your journal rather than just deleting them would be good.
Overall though, me likee

Seconding (thirding?) the iPhone feature. I don't work anywhere near a desk, so that's a huge deal to me. I'm currently using Livestrong, and that's one of the main reasons why. I'd love to be able to support someone in the Primal family instead.
