can't make custom recipes (check out the open source Cronometer for how to do this), which makes this program (and many other like this, such as Calories 2) a major failure.

Sorry I can't see spending $20 on this. I use which works on any computer and has apps for iPhone & iPad which are also free. If I had to wait to input what I've eaten on my Mac I'd forget half the time, having a mobile app is a must have to be really helpful IMHO.

Very good app, but (as I have already written on developer's Facebook site) definitely lacks its iOS counterpart (at least iPhone one) which is the reason I have started to prefer Calories With iCloud out I do not think it is problem of technical resources, but of profitability. But mere look at Conceited forums (3 topics total about Healthnut) shows probably lack of interest of customers and therefore developer as well, they simply have more popular products. Nonetheless the Healthnut for mac is very good app, very popular in Health section on my country's Mac App Store, and I hope it will be given some developer love...
