DQS Mobile App Details

This is the official Racing Weight Diet Quality Score App, now with the ability to save your DQS data for as long as you want and view graphs of your progress over time! This app allows you to calculate your daily Diet Quality Score (DQS) as described in Matt Fitzgerald's book, Racing Weight. The Diet Quality Score is a simple instrument that allows athletes to measure the overall quality of their diet. The DQS Mobile app was designed to make it as easy as possible to calculate a Diet Quality Score each day. As you eat throughout the day, enter the servings of each category of food that you consume. Tap a box to consume one serving of that category, tap it again and it will become a half serving, and one more tap will set it back to zero for that box. You can tap the category name to view an explanation of what foods fall under that category. Your total DQS score for the day is shown in the upper right corner of the page. DQS data is saved for each day you track it. You can also log your weight on the bottom of the Tracking page. We recommend you log your weight no more than once per week. The Graphs page lets you see how you are doing with your Diet Quality Score over time. You can view your data over the last week, month or year. When viewing yearly data, it is displayed as 52 week-long averages. You can view graphs showing your total DQS, your weight, or your DQS score by specific category. You can set a target weight and a target DQS score on the Profile page.

  • Great app! Lots of help

    The app is great. Lots of category examples and explanations. The DQS is helping me to keep within my nutrition guidelines for training, something I have always struggled to do. I only wish you could plan ahead. I like to plan out my meals the night before so I can make sure my nutrition is adequate for my training schedule. I would like to enter my categories in advance. Maybe the next update???
  • Simple and effective

    Usually hesitant with "diet" apps, but the DQS approach to overall diet quality is fundamentally sound. This app is simple and quick enough to where there's no reason no to use it and it helps you be more aware of what you're eating. It would only be better if it could integrate with other apps like My Fitness Pal and Strava.
  • Easy to use

    Great way to track the DQS. Like the ease of use and tracking ability. I wish it had serving size information.
  • Basic but useful especially for RW users

    I have gone back and forth between this tool and full-featured calorie counter apps. I've decided to stick with this one. If you are bought into the Matt Fitzgerald system, as I am, this is a simple tool to ensure as many of your nutritional choices throughout the day conform to his Racing Weight/Endurance diet as possible. When I was 30 pounds away from my target weight, calorie counting made more sense. I needed that kind of data proof that my food choices could make a big impact. I don't need to be convinced of that anymore. This app, despite its limitations, keeps me on the straight and narrow in a very simple way. It does not demand much of a time or memory commitment on my part. DQS scoring, once you get the hang of it, is instinctual. In short, it works. The only change I would make is having it report back to the health app that comes with the iPhone.
  • Makes racing weight planning so easy

    I love the app. I wish it were a little clearer on where vegetarians should record eggs, but it's super easy to use, has good information hidden in obvious places, and makes what would otherwise be super difficult very easy. I'm a fan
  • Great app

    Simple, stable and helpful for tracking diet w/out having to count calories
  • Great app, needs a few tweaks

    Simple to use, and the interface is quick, so tracking isn't a chore. My main request is for more flexibility in eating modes. I'm mainly vegetarian, but eat fish twice a week and eggs almost every day. In the vegetarian mode, there's nowhere to track eggs, but in the omnivore mode, I feel punished for eating legumes/plant protein as my main source.
  • Good could be better

    I wish the categories were further broken down into breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack like the online version does. That makes it easier to track and update
  • Love This App

    I've been using this for a little over a week. I absolutely love how it is improving my diet quality. Here it is late in the day and I'm going to need a snack and I look at my chart and see what else I could use to round out my day or improve my score. Before I would just eat whatever sounded good. This is an awesome and easy way of keeping track of your food.
  • Great! Simple!

    I love the simplicity of this app. It makes being conscious of eating good food so much easier than counting calories. Tracking the types of food you eat during the day, along with the quality, has really helped me avoid over eating at all. Love it!
