Our Favorite Weight Management Apps

Managing your weight is almost as hard as starting the process itself. You try to make better food choices and live a healthier lifestyle, but sometimes the pounds find a way to creep back on. Luckily, there are several weight management apps to help you stay on track!

Considered to be the granddaddy of all weight management apps, MyFitnessPal allows you to log everything from food to exercise and steps. It has the largest food database with over 6 million items making it easier to track calories. You can create your own goals or have the app customize them for you.

Lose It!
Enter your profile and goal weight and let Lose It! do the rest. A calorie budget is calculated to determine the calorie requirements you need to reach and maintain your goal weight.

My Diet Coach
The My Diet Coach app is like your best friend cheering you on your weight loss journey. This app makes losing weight fun by providing motivational quotes and rewards for your success. You can set daily challenges and keep track of the food you eat by using the food diary.

On your weight loss journey, you may need a little help from your friends…and possibly a nutritionist. With Rise, you have access to your own nutrition coach who will provide feedback on your food selections.

GymGoal Pro
GymGoal Pro is like having a personal trainer in your pocket. It offers 390 animated exercises along with step-by-step instructions. It manages your heart rate as well as your body measurements so you can see the results. The GPS tracking is helpful for those days you want to take your exercise routine outside.

Weight Watchers
Weight Watchers has been around for years and the reason why is because it works. However, if you are unable to attend meetings, you can still be a part of the Weight Watchers community through their app. You can easily track food and exercise as well as sync to other fitness trackers to earn FitPoints.

The foods you eat may have a more significant effect on you than you realize. Fooducate informs you about the nutrition of foods to help you make better food choices. A health grade is assigned to each item along with its contents. Sleeping, exercise and even your mood can be logged into the app.

Following a new food regimen such as the Mediterranean, Paleo, Low Carb or Vegetarian diets can be beneficial for a healthy lifestyle. PlateJoy makes it simple by customizing meal plans and creating grocery lists made for your personal dietary needs.

With just a little help from technology, losing and maintaining your weight can be easier, but nothing can entirely replace the effectiveness of a weight loss community.
