Staying healthy is hard. With obesity becoming a major health problem, especially among teenagers, the need to maintain a healthy diet is essential. You may be working out 5 times a week but if you can’t control what you eat and keep munching on junk foods, you will never see the results you are hoping for.
You must already know that to see the desired result you must burn more calories than you consume. This can be achieved by eating healthy. What I’m trying to say is that you must not eat whatever comes in front of you. Take a moment and think whether what you are about to eat is good for you or not. Here are 2 of the best Android apps that help you do so.
Don’t miss: Top 5 Fitness Apps to Track Health Activities
Calorie Counter – MyFitnessPal
MyFitnessPal is the ultimate and the absolute best calorie counter available for Android. The download count of 50 Million+ along with a rating of 4.6 stars is enough to prove that. It comes with all the features you can expect from a calorie counter. It has a huge database of more than 6 million foods. The can also be synced across devices for cross-platform needs.
Upon installing MyFitnessPal, it will ask for some personal details like weight, height, goal weight, daily physical activities, etc. in order to calculate your daily calorie requirement. Stick by that and you’ll be good. It also has a basic cardio and strength training tracker with more than 350 exercise. The app also shows a bunch of useful articles related to health and fitness on the home page. You can connect a bunch of other services like Fitbit, Garmin, MapMyFitness, Runkeeper, etc. to share data among them.[googleplay url=”https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.myfitnesspal.android”/]
HealthifyMe Weight Loss Coach
HealthifyMe is another powerful calorie counter that uses its Indian origin card perfectly. India, being a city of different cultures, has a lot of different cuisines. Each state is famous for something delicious. This app has a database of more than 1 million Indian foods and covers almost everything from everywhere.
The UI of HealthifyMe is my favorite and probably the best of all. The app, just like MyFitnessPal asks for personal details upon installation to form a calorie intake. After that, it divides that number into various sections i.e. how many calories you should be consuming in a certain meal. That’s helpful if you tend to overeat at one meal and starve yourself in the other.
If you opt for the premium membership, you can get a personalized fitness plan created by the experts along with real-time consultation via the app, voice call, and video call.
Lastly, HealthifyMe also offers a premiere corporate wellness program to improve the wellness of the employees. It has bagged several prestigious companies like Cognizant, Philips, Unilever, Shell, etc. as clients.[googleplay url=”https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.healthifyme.basic”/]
MyFitnessPal and HealthifyMe, both, are pretty good and somewhat similar to an extent. The choice to select one simply depends on your personal preference. I’m using MyFitnessPal as I installed it first and never found any problem with it to move to any other app. To keep you motivated, these apps make use of gamification i.e. you can add friends and compete with them for points and a higher position on the leaderboard.
