There are a number of awesome Health Apps out on the market, but I’m going to list my personal Top 3 and what I use them for. I hope that my findings will help you on your journey to better health!
My Top 3 FREE Health Apps:
MyFitnessPal is an awesome app and website for your smartphone, tablet or laptop. It is a FREE app and a place to track all of your food, water, and exercise to help you on your journey to better health. You really have to download it (for FREE) and see it to believe it!
My Fitness Pal describes their app like this: “Reach your weight loss goals with MyFitnessPal, the best calorie counter on the iPhone. Set a daily calorie goal and record your daily food and exercise to make sure you stay on track. Then watch the pounds come off!”
Besides an awesome resource of built in food, a scanner (to automatically add calories) and a straight forward back-end- it also is an exception social site. You can add friends on there, similar to Facebook, but it’s private. You’re only sharing info with people in MyFitnessPal who are also on the weight loss/healthy journey like yourself. This is my all time favorite health app and I highly recommend you try it out!
The Whole Foods Market Recipes App is another awesome FREE app that is fun and simple to use. HealthLine.com shares a few of the app’s best points including: “Search the recipe index on the Whole Foods Market Recipes App to find tonight’s dinner. Save the recipe, create a shopping list from it, and shop from your list while you’re at the store. Or use one of two unique aspects of the app: see what’s on sale at your local store and create a menu, or use the On-Hands search tool to find recipes that use the ingredients you have on hand already.”
Lastly, the My Diet Coach app is a FREE Motivation app. You can let the app know if you’re having a food craving, or need an encouraging word. This is a great tool to go along with an app like MyFitnessPal. Use MyFitnessPal to track your eating and exercise, and then My Diet Coach can help you along on days that you just need an encouraging word (although true motivation comes from your mindset.)
I hope that this list opened your eyes to some awesome FREE tools to help you on your health and weight loss journey!
