As I have been searching the net for motivation and knowledge to help me facilitate my weight loss journey, I have come across many health apps that can be used by others to guide them in their weight loss program. These apps are very helpful as trackers for instance you can input your entire diet plan, lunch dinner, and breakfast and it will give your daily calorie intake. You can set weight loss weekly or monthly goals and track them daily to keep you in check. One can do the same for their exercise plan and schedule. The app will tell you how many calories you have burnt during the exercise.
The tracker keeps count of your weight loss and even helps in tacking your fluid intake and sleep patterns. If you take the premium pack which is around Rs 2000 for three months, you will get a call from a health expert and a dietician. You will get helpful tips from joggers and fitness trainers. One can also enter chat groups and therapy sessions for advice. They are a whole process for tackling mental health issues as well.
Some of the popular fitness and calorie counting apps are HealthyMe App, HealthHub App, DailyBurn App a calorie counting app, Fitter App, LooseIt App. Most of them can be downloaded from the google play store or Apple App Store. They are free at first but then if you want more features you will have to pay for a monthly or quarterly plan. The App acts as an invisible fitness instructor and a motivational guide for your weight loss programs. Some apps routinely throw up diet recipes depending on your food intake and weight loss diet program. Others give advice on vitamin intake and tell you how much fiber there is in a slice of brown bread or in 50 grams of butter.
If you have an iPhone it’s best to use the health tracker to see how many steps you do while your walk. It will give you your step length along with if you are walking correctly or not as well. You can track your sleep also with this app. There are apps that throw in fitness interaction videos to help you to get the right exercise posture and get the maximum out of your routine.
I just git a message from my app that it is time for me to have one glass of water as I am writing this blog, now that’s smart.
Most Apps come with a BMI calculator, one can sign in after answering a few questions slink your age, weight, height, telephone number, questions about your previous health history, age, type of work and profession you are in, and how much weight you want to lose along with the time frame . Once you answer these your profile is captured by the app and it starts to throw up ideas and content to facilitate your individual weight loss journey. Remember everyone has a different body for your weight loss program is unique to only you, do not try to compare with others.
Sure you can get inspired from fat to fit and I lost 24kgs in six months kind of stories that makes you feel that even you can do it, but concentrate on your individual weight loss schedule that suits you. Play around with your diet plan add new healthy food to keep you interested. Do the same for your exercise program if you are bored of doing squats do some skipping or lunges. Down weight yourself too often maybe twice a month is good enough just to make sure you are on track and sync with your weight loss goals. Sure go ahead and use technology to facilitate your weight loss journey it will be of great benefit to you.
