For losing weight
▪ FatSecret is an “easy to use” food diary and calorie counter for planning meals and tracking what you eat. You don’t have to plug everything in: The app can scan bar codes and recognize images of foods and meals. It also offers healthy recipes and a weight-tracking tool.
▪ Lose It! wants you to shed pounds but enjoy the process. First, you tell the app a bit about yourself. It then devises a custom weight-loss regimen with daily budgets and goals. The app provides detailed nutritional breakdowns about what you’re consuming, and like FatSecret, it uses image recognition to identify the foods in front of you.
▪ Charity Miles doesn’t count calories—“but it does help the world a little.” Choose a favorite charity from this fitness app’s list, and every step you take will generate a small donation from the app’s sponsors. How’s that for motivation?
