IPhones and iPads help us with communication, organization, and efficiency. Now with these five iTunes applications they can assist with your weight loss goals as well. Tracking your progress toward your New Year's goals has never been easier.
My Diet Coach - This app keeps you motivated and committed to winning the mental game of losing weight. It provides necessary and helpful reminders, features a weight chart, and even has a panic button for those tough food cravings. Add motivational photos and read the perseverance tips to help stay on track.
DailyBurn FoodScanner - This app uses your iPhone’s camera to scan barcodes on food and provide complete nutritional information. This is a simple way to determine daily caloric intake. No signup is required, however, to access nutrition history and macronutrient breakdown, sync with a DailyBurn account.
Diet ScanCalc – Scan a product barcode with this app and it provides nutritional information, as well as a ‘food score’. The ‘food score’ is much like Weight Watchers points, however they are not affiliated. This is an easy way to keep track of calories or points.
Happy Scale - This app helps with those frustrating weigh ins by predicting your true weight. Set small goals for achievable milestones, and then view your progress by week, month, quarter, and overall success. A four digit passcode protects your private information.
Intelli – Diet App - This app allows you to enter which foods you have available and creates a well-balanced diet. Diets can also be customized by gender, weight, activity level, and food preference. Features include an automatically generated shopping list, easy food swaps, and weight loss progress in charts and tables.
