Is your goal this year to become healthier and fitter? Now, there’s an app ?for that
Calorie-tracking apps can help keep weight loss goals on track
If you’re looking to shed a few pounds and get fit, you’re not alone. While you’re putting in the hard work, some high-tech tools can help keep you on track. The good news: some of the best apps are free.
These are a few of the better apps that I’ve discussed with my patients. And full disclosure: I have no financial interest in any of them!
Calorie trackers can help count the calories you’ve taken in and how many you have left for the day.
You can find many free workout apps as well.
As for other New Year’s resolutions? Stopping smoking or at least cutting down on cigarettes goes a long way to improving health. A multi-pronged attack is always better, such as nicotine replacements in the form of patches, inhalers and gum, prescription medications to help curb cravings, and, of course, counselling. The more support, the better.
So what if every time you craved a cigarette, you reached for your smartphone? The “MyQuit Coach” app can be personalized and offers the most successful tips on stopping smoking. It even helps calculate how much money you’ve saved by not smoking.
For long-term success, the key is to modify your lifestyle. And with the help of apps like these, you may no longer have any excuses.
