In addition to joining the Lucille Roberts family, your phone is another great tool to help you lead a happier and healthier lifes. With the creation of health and fitness apps, we can now better track our activities and eating habits so they can become constant parts of our lifestyle. There are many health and wellness apps available, and it can be hard to choose which ones are best and sift through what apps work and what doesn’t. As always, we are here to help you! Here are 3 of our current favorites. And yes, they are FREE!
Sage Project: An app created to cut through any misleading, confusing information about your food. The team at Sage is reinventing the way we track our calories and view food so it is smart, simple, and personalized. Get nutrition data on your favorite foods like Fage yogurt, Kind Bars, and so much more.
Noom: With a mission to create products that help people lead healthier lives, Noom provides technology for food and activity logging (aka your #LRStrong workout). The app even organizes your meals for the day (breakfast, snacks, dinner, etc.) so it is easier for you to keep track of your nutrition goals. That’s not all, they also offer personal health coaches as part of their paid service. Unlike fad diet programs which tend to end badly, Noom’s coach program is created for you to help change your habits for long term success.
MyFitnessPal: Probably the most popular nutrition and calorie tracking app, MyFitnessPal has over 5 million foods in their database for you to track, which is awesome for those specific foods (e.g your usual Starbucks latte). But be wary because the app also allows anyone to input nutrition information on certain foods, which may lead to tracking false information. Just make sure you’re logging verified food sources on the app. You’ll see these marked by a green check mark. This app also lets you track your daily workout activity and water intake.
