Wanted to make it easy on everyone and talk apps today. Specifically the ones I use regularly and have made it in my life through the long haul. Why apps and not programs? Because it's 2016. And in 2016, many of us live on our phones. Yes, we might pop in a DVD or stream an online workout once a day, for the other 23 hours, we're attached to our phones, or at least have them in very close range. So, here are my favorite apps to keep me on track through life!
1. 21 Day Fix app. It's free and honestly you don't even have to buy the program to use it. In fact, I use it as a guide on the regular, even when I am not necessarily following the full 21 Day Fix program. Pros to this app are that it is quick and easy to track what you eat throughout the day. The app subtracts it and tells you what you are left with. I like that it is set up by type of food and not by calories or grams. Highly simplified.
2. My Fitness Pal. I like this one because you can literally look up any food of any brand or from any restaurant and it's probably on there along with the nitty gritty of every single nutrient contained. It can be overwhelming though. And time consuming because you have to enter each slice of bread, leaf of lettuce, and type of lunch meat separately. It's a lot of work, but definitely worth trying if just for the sake of seeing exactly what is IN all of these foods you are eating.
