With the advances in technology and the hyper increase in smartphone use, things that used to be hard in the past, like counting calories, have become very simple and actually fun. One thing that people can do this year to get one step closer to health is to start counting calories again…with apps! A basic
calorie guideline for women to lose weight is 12-1500 calories a day and men 16-1800. Calorie tracking is one of the only guaranteed ways to lose weight and calorie counting apps like Myfitnesspal and Livestrong make counting calories not only easy, but fun. These apps on the Iphone and Android markets have databases of thousands of foods and restaurants to choose from and also allow you to scan barcodes for easy adding. . Not only do you become aware of how many calories you are taking in, writing it down will actually stop you from taking in certain calories because you see how much EXTRA is going into your body. If you can begin to limit the calories that you take in, you will also limit how big your waistline gets over time!
