best weight loss apps
My Fitness Pal
My Fitness Pal is a free calorie counter app that helps you keep track of the foods you eat and the calories you burn through exercise. Using the app also gives you access to healthy eating blogs and a supportive weight loss community, as well as success stories from other participants. You can set and record daily goals for food and exercise.
My Fitness Pal is so easy to use we utilize it in our Weight Management Clinic located at Methodist Physicians Clinic – Millard. My Fitness Pal is available on iPhone, iPad, Android,Blackberry and Windows mobile platforms. It can also sync between mobile devices and the web.
While it’s always a good idea to drink plenty of water, it’s easy to become dehydrated during the rapid weight loss that follows bariatric surgery. Drinking water not only helps your body recover, it also helps stave off hunger and replaces those unhealthy sugary drinks.
Waterlogged is a terrific app because it helps track your daily water intake, and reminds you when to drink more. It’s free and super simple to use. Right now, Waterlogged is only available on Apple platforms.
I love my Fitbit Force.
I really do. In fact, I think it’s one of the best fitness trackers out there. But I’m a little biased.
I have found it to be extremely motivating, especially on days when I work out. I always strive to reach a minimum of #5,000 steps during a workout so that I can easily hit #10,000 steps by the end of the day. So on the days I feel like I just don’t want to keep going, or don’t want to do the classes that get me the most steps (and incidently raise my heart rate the most), my Fitbit is there to taunt me by letting me know I’m nowhere near my minimum of 5,000 steps or that I’m only 200 steps away.
Fitbit’s website also allows you to track food, but I haven’t used that portion since I use My Fitness Pal as well and the two apps work together.
That’s another plus. All Fitbit devices “play well with other apps” as the website says. But it’s true. I can link my Force with My Fitness Pal and it adjusts my calorie allotment for the day based on my activity level. I can link it with the Walgreens app and earn balance reward points just for walking. I also have my Force linked with Achievemint which gives you points based on steps, sleep, tweets, Facebook posts, Instagram posts and a variety of other things. Once you reach 25,000 points, you get a digital $25 Visa gift card. Sweet, right?
You can also link it with other wearables like the Garmin heart rate monitor to get a clearer overall picture of your health. So the Flex (and Force) are quite versatile, and their the only wearable out there with so many options.
