4. Lose It!
Are you ready to lose some weight? Who doesn’t want to shed those extra 5-10 lbs we put on during the holidays? Lose It! wants to help you by getting you to set your weight loss goals and daily calorie budget. Of course, it’s up to you to record your food and exercise stats, but once you do, you’ll start to notice how much your consuming and how often you’re exercising. The app comes with a calorie-counter that has a large database of brand name and generic foods, including items you’ll find at popular restaurants. Best part? The daily budget will help you stay on track by telling you how many calories you need to burn if you want to eat that extra cookie or devour that last piece of cake.
5. Restaurant Nutrition
Going out to eat? Craving fast food? Before you order your Big Mac check out the Restaurant Nutrition app to see the nutritional information about what you’re about to consume. With over 200 restaurants and 60,000 food items in their database, you’ll be able to learn more about what you’re putting in your mouth. Though more and more restaurants are posting some nutritional information like calories on their menus, you’ll find more information here like protein, fat and carbs. Looking for healthier alternatives before you step out? Just find the name of the restaurant with the healthiest food, look for the map button near it and tap on it to be launched into Google Maps which will show you nearby locations. Want to remember what you just ate? Click “I ate this today” and you can keep track of all that food.
