You already take your smartphone with you everywhere-you might as well use it to power your workout routine and glean precious data from your bike ride. This is the year you stick to your fitness routine for good. And with smartphone computers and sensors getting better and better, health and fitness apps have finally turned the corner from clunky to crucial. I will show the apps I believe that can add something good to your health lifestyle. Take a look:
This is the app I am using most of the times now. If you are tired of eating only brown rice and chicken…keep reading. This is an app made by Instagram star Kevin Curry with healthy recipes and videos. This healthy food app is very useful because instead of having a very large selection of recipes, this app gives you a more narrow list with ingredients that will make your food taste better without compromising your body goal.
Are you very serious about getting in shape? You should be tracking all the food you eat then. The fitness pal is one of the easiest and more practical ways to keep track of your daily macros. The good thing about this app is that it keeps a history of what you usually eat and makes it easy to add to each meal. A big help, since when you are keeping a strict diet you pretty much eat the same thing everyday.
Sleeping, Calories, steps, this will track all… It is uncertain how accurate the heart monitor calculates the calories burned but it gives you a pretty good idea on your daily exercises.
Have you ever wondered how to make better choices when shopping for groceries or have you been spending way too much time looking at food labels? This app does pretty much all that for you. It will help you choose the best foods to buy based on nutrients and calories. It also has a very motivational forum that you can share some health knowledge and gains.
Map My Run
Another great app is from the guys at Mapmyfitness. This running and workout GPS tracker will you give you detailed information about your training including steps, distance, calories, etc. If you are a street runner, this app is a must.
It’s good that many tech companies are focusing on working in a technology to better our daily lives and help us become healthier. Enjoy.
