If you really want to lose weight, you can’t go wrong with an Android app to help you shed. These apps are designed to keep you accountable, whether they’re tracking how many calories, you burn in a workout or how many calories you consume per day. All of them are free, proving that you don’t have to spend loads of money to get rid of those extra pounds.
Whether you’re struggling to get out for a run after coming home from a long day working at a hospital, or you’re a stay-at-home mom that keeps eating her kids’ leftovers, there’s an app to get you in line. So, guys let have a look on 5 Best Weight-Loss Apps for Android.
1. Lose It!
This great app creates a weight-loss plan that’s tailored to you and your lifestyle. It counts calories, including restaurant entrees that can be hard to estimate, and it keeps tabs on your exercise via a database that can help you keep track of how much you’re moving over the long term.
Especially helpful is a barcode scanner who can automatically find the calories, fat content and nutritional information for nearly anything you put in your mouth.
2. Weight Watchers
Yes, Weight Watchers has been around for a while, but that’s for one big reason: it works. This Android app can help you tally your daily points as well as connect you to the Weight Watchers community by finding local meetings.
The food database offers more than 150,000 choices, and there’s copious health and fitness content to browse through. However, be forewarned, you do have to be a Weight Watchers member to access all the great features of this app.
3. Diet Pro
With more than 2 million happy users (it rates a 4.5 out of 5 on the Google Play rating’s scale); Diet Pro helps you find a diet that’s right for you. It offers more than 130 weight-loss plans, but if none of them pique your fancy, it will help you design one customized to your needs.
The app has a meal reminder that will ensure you don’t skip a nosh (a major cause of weight gain), and it offers a community of dieters to connect with when your willpower weakens. Plus it maps out how much weight you should be losing on each plan.
4. MyFitness Pal
This calorie counter is another hugely popular weight-loss app in the Android world, receiving better than a 4.5 rating on Google Play. It’s updated regularly to include food listings of more than 2 million products.
It can be programmed to add entire meals automatically, and it remembers your favorites to make calorie counting easier. Plus, it fully syncs to your desktop, so you can record your meals wherever you are.
5. Runtastic Running and Fitness
There’s no better way to torch calories than with a brisk exercise session, and running is one of the most efficient forms of exercise.
The “lite” version of this app allows you to track your workout time and distance as well as see your progress from one month to the next.
