Even if your Android phone can accurately track your steps using the built-in accelerometer, the technology that can estimate how much you’re lifting, for how long and so on doesn’t exist yet. Yes, I know that you want to tell me that there are plenty of wearables that claim to do that, but there are either way too expensive for your budget, either unreliable if coming at a cheap price, so you should keep looking for more options and be sure of the fact that there are plenty of apps for that.
These apps will help you support your work in the gym, but there are also plenty of applications with nutrition advice so that you know what, when and how to eat in order to achieve your latest goals. Yes, I cannot say that exercising is not extremely important, but you’re not going to get very far if you don’t keep an eye on your diet as well and don’t make some important life changes at this chapter too.
One example of such an app is MyFitnessPal that can easily regulate your calorie intake. Before using the MyFitnessPal app, you need to sign up, either with your Email or with Facebook, but using it is a piece of case, so you have no reason to be worried about.
The idea behind this application is very simple. MyFitnessPal is nothing more than simple Calorie Counter. Once you sign up and answer some questions concerning your age, weight, and exercise intensity, you can start counting your calorie intake. To do so, offer information about your last meal, including the name of the food, the size of the portion and the quantity.
Like that, the app will automatically calculate the calories, carbs, fat, and protein of the meal and add it to your progress diary. The biggest advantage of the database of over four million foods so you can find what you ate and keep an accurate count and even more, you ca easily add the product you are eating, either manually or by scanning the product’s barcode. This is great for anyone who is not a native English speaker, so MyFitnessPal developers thought about almost anything.
And I also want to tell you that there is also a web interface you can use if you need it and a pro version for no more than $0.99 available as in app purchase. Grab Calorie Counter – MyFitnessPal from here and let me know if it meets your expectations.
