Did your holidays include a new iPad or iPhone? Do you already have one? Every Friday I’m featuring FREE apps that you may find useful to help you with your New Year’s Resolution!
Looking to lose weight this year? I have two free apps you’ll want to download.
Download the FREE EatBetter app and it will calculate how many calories you are allotted, track what you eat, and calculats calories burned when you workout. It also helps you track the number of glasses of water you’ve consumed each day.
I’ve been using Eat Better for several days now. Apparently I eat WAY over the allotted calories for the day. The first day I used it, I discovered that by 10 AM I’d already eaten over half of my daily calories. Wowza.
The one feature with Eat Better I’m not crazy about is I can’t figure out how to delete an item once I’ve added it to my daily total. For example, this morning I added 1 Cup of peanuts instead of 1 Tablespoon. That was an extra 864 calories I couldn’t delete. Other than that, its FREE! So I can’t really complain.
Or, you can try Calorie Counter by MyNetDiary. This app allows you to enter your personal information and set a weight goal to get your daily calorie total. It also has the added benefit of being able to scan barcodes to get a calorie count.
I tested this app as well. I found it very user friendly and it has several features, such as adding a custom recipe, that Eat Better doesn’t.
That said, I found I preferred Eat Better. It’s prettier. Seriously, that is that only reason.
Is losing weight one of your resolutions this year?
