Whether you’ve just joined a diet program or you’re looking to lose weight on your own, the best way to ensure the best tracking and, ultimately, the best results is to keep track of your calorie intake with a calorie counting app.
A number of the free apps listed below not only track calories but track exercise habits, sleep schedules, food intake and more.
MyPlate Calorie Tracker keeps it simple. No matter what weight loss method you use, the “calories in vs. calories out” rule applies. This app makes it simple to track calories and set meal time reminders to keep you on track if you are trying to eat smaller meals more frequently. A daily snap shot of carbs, fats, and protein is a helpful and quick-glance tool offered in this app. There is also an interactive community of fellow calorie counters there for support and advice.
This app features some pretty cool graphs and tracking charts to clearly show your progress overall, as well as daily progress. You will know exactly how much to eat and exercise while following the charts on this free app. When you reach your goal weight, calorie suggestions change to a maintenance mode to ensure you don’t gain it right back. You can also check your favorite recipes to see the calorie content prior to making your meal choices.
