Losing Weight – Get help through Apps

The goal of losing weight is in most peoples minds and goals.  The purpose of this article is to alert you that there are a few apps (applications) that are now available that seem to fit the bill in achieving your goals.

The first app is called MyFitnessPal  which tracks both calories and fitness.  From the MyFitnessPal website:  “Over 40 million people have lost weight with MyFitnessPal’s FREE calorie counter  Get access to the world’s largest nutrition and calorie database — over 3 million foods!”    Well I have tried this app and it’s great.  Many times you can just scan the barcode of the product and enter the number of servings.  This is also great when you are preparing foods at home, an example a recipe.  For home-cooked meals, there’s an option to create (and save) a recipe by plugging in the individual ingredients. Besides whole and natural ingredients, the MyFitnessPal app includes things like prepackaged supermarket products and chain restaurant favorites.  Look for the “MyFitnessPal” in the app store on your smart phone or tablet including Kindle tablets.   The other beauty of this app is that it allows you to track your activity level which is important to losing weight.

After trying numerous apps to find a food diary app the MyFitnessPal is the winner.

Another unique app is brought to the world by MINDIFI.  I have tried the “Weight Loss Hypnosis” app and believe it or not I am quit impressed. This app is available for Apple, Kindle, and Android products through the respective app stores.  The following product description is from the manufacturer:
