Manage your Fitness using Smartphone Applications


Smartphone applications are fun to use. Every day you log in to your App or Play Store you see hundreds of new applications. Sometimes you would just go on an application-downloading-spree and then realize that you have filled your app drawer with dozens of new applications. However, you don’t have to download applications without purpose. Applications are cool things that are meant to benefit you in many ways. Health and fitness applications are some of the most useful applications you would find. Many of these applications will give you a complete summary of the nutrition you are taking daily.

MyFitnessPal is one of the best applications you can have on your smartphone for keeping an eye on the amount of nutrition you are taking every day. First, this application has menus from various restaurants already loaded in it. As you open the menu you can see the nutrition facts about the foods that are there on the menus. Second, this is probably one of the rarest applications that give you a detailed view of what you are eating. You don’t only get a view of your nutrition intake but a detailed breakdown of other elements such as magnesium, iron, potassium, sodium, etc.

Another great application to keep you fit is the FatSecret. The name suggests that this application would tell you all about fat but that’s not the only thing it does. It also tracks your exercise. You can enter the foods you are eating on a daily basis and match the amount of fat you have taken in a day against how much you should have taken. Along with this journal you have the option to go for a personal journal. In the personal journal you can note down how you feel about your diet and daily food intake.

MyNetDiary is one of the best applications for those who are pursuing good health and fitness. The good thing about this application is that it is available on iOS and Android both. You can scan the barcodes given on the products to enter the information about nutrition in this application. You can also do this task manually. You can track nutrients and your intake for these nutrients on a daily basis. You have the option to enter 45 nutrients at a time and monitor your progress of how much you have taken for each nutrient.

Lose It is another fitness application and its name should already tell you what it is meant for. This particular application is designed not only to keep you fit but also to make you lose some weight if you have some unnecessary on you. This one is a true fitness tool because it asks you to enter your personal details such as your height, weight and age to determine how much your daily intake of calories and other nutrients should be. Exercise applications that are compatible with this particular application can sync their data with it so you can keep a track of your exercising progress as well.

With growing popularity of smartphones and apps, several retreats, such as Phuketfit and even more, have started developing apps, so they can help their customers track things easily.
