Weight Loss Apps For Android
Eat This Not That
This is a very simple app that give you two choices. It presents you with two foods options and challenges you to choose the more nutritious option. It presents you with choices like smoothies versus bowls of cereal for breakfast and helps guide you to the better choice while revealing the nutritional information about each option.
Where the app falls short is with its food selections. Its choices are very commercial and are not based on eating natural foods. The foods are mainly centered on different fast food choices.
For example, the app may ask you to choose between a Dunkin’ Donuts fruit smoothie or a fruit smoothie from McDonalds. It breaks down the calories content for each as well as the major nutrients.
If your diet is focused strictly on cutting calories than this application will help you to lose weight. If you’re focusing on choosing the healthiest whole food options than I think your time is better spent on our next app.
I think you’ll agree that Fooducate is one of the best weight loss apps for android. It allows you to scan the barcodes of your favorite foods while you’re shopping at the grocery store or trying to decide on the best option at home.
I haven’t come across too many foods that aren’t included in the Fooducate database. It will give you an overall grade as well as any major pitfalls or positive attributes eating this food will offer you.
What’s great about the app is that it’s not as commercial as other options. It’s database includes whole all natural foods like avocados and apples to help you make the best choices that will help you to lose weight.
Couch To 5k
Many people want to get started running to lose weight but don’t know how to build up to the longer distances. They get on the treadmill or start running outside and give up quickly because it’s just too hard.
The couch to 5k exercise app can solve that for you. It starts you off on a walking program and builds you up to running miles at a clip over a period of months. You can even slow it down or speed it up if you feel you’re ready to move along a little faster or want to do last weeks workouts again because you’re not quite ready to move on yet.
