Technology has helped us do all kinds of great things: read news from across the globe, book travel plans for our family vacations, possibly land a new job. So why not let technology help you with your fitness goals? Take a look at these 5 apps for weight loss and use the one that fits best with your lifestyle, goals, and tech savviness to get on the path to optimal health!

1. 7 Minute Workout

Simple, quick, effective. How’s that for a winning weight loss combo? This app, which is available for IPhone and Android is rated highly by users because it is so easy to use and takes a minimal amount of time. So if you’re one of those time-strapped people who always says that they don’t have time to work out, this app is for you. It has voice prompts to guide you through the exercises, which are from their nationally recognized program.

2. My Fitness Pal

A comprehensive app that counts calories and tracks your diet is a fan favorite. Testimonials from dedicated users say that they’ve lost a significant amount of weight by using this app. With its clean design, it helps you keep track of what you’re eating and your weight loss goals with charts and a screen that tracks your meals and the calories for everything you’re eating. Users say that getting in the habit of recording everything they’re eating has made them more conscious about their food choices, which leads to sustained weight loss. Sounds like a great pal in our book!

3. Fooducate

With a focus on nutrition and the ingredients that we find in our food, this user friendly app that’s available on both Iphone and Android has the ability to scan a nutrition label and tell you what’s in it. If you’re not happy with what’s on the ingredient list, the app will suggest some alternatives for you. And the app also provides the capability to import and export data from other apps to give you a comprehensive weight loss program that supports your lifestyle.

4. Fitness Buddy

Think of this app as your own personal trainer that you can take along with you to the gym. It provides workout tips and recommendations on what machines to use based on the goals you’re trying to achieve. Some users say it’s not for beginners, but most agree that it is user friendly and has a wealth of information like exercise videos and photos to help guide you through your workouts. An added bonus is that there’s lots of workouts for women!


5. Fitocracy

Need some motivation but your spouse or friends are just too lazy to help you? Then Fitocracy is a great app for you with its social media element and community of trainers and users who are giving you words of encouragement along the way. Build points and share them with your online community to boost your fitness goals since users say that’s one of the best features and what motivates them to keep going! It’s on IPhone and Android and has a bit of a fun, gaming element for those competitive types who want to spark up their fitness routine.

Whatever technology you choose, get started soon and modify it as your needs change. That’s one of the great things about these fitness apps is that they adapt to you and your goals, so don’t wait any longer!
