Is health and fitness, or even weight loss on your mind again after a busy holiday season? I’ve gone a little off track myself when it comes to keeping my health in mind during the hustle and bustle of the holidays. I’m ready to get myself back into a healthy eating frame of mind, and in order to keep myself accountable, there are plenty of apps for Healthy Weight Loss and Fitness to make it easier to stay on top of my health goals.

Five Apps To Keep Healthy Weight Loss and Fitness on Track
Healthy Eating Apps
1) Fooducate (Free for iOS, Android). First prize winner in the U. S. Surgeon General’s Healthy App Challenge, Fooducate goes beyond counting calories to help users achieve healthy weight loss and fitness for an overall healthy life.
Users can maintain a healthy diet by tracking the quality of calories, not just the quantity, by scanning over 250,000 barcodes to see a specific nutrition grade (A, B, C or D). Fooducate also integrates seamlessly with Apple’s Health app, allowing users to compare calorie consumption and burning.
I really like this app because I am always looking for a quick way to see what ingredients are in the food I use/buy, and with Fooducate I can easily find this information, keep track of what I’m eating, and so much more!
2) Healthy Recipes (free). The Healthy Recipes app by SparkRecipes gives easy, tasty, and healthy recipes with the nutrition content readily available so you know exactly what total sugars, sodium, carb levels, etc. are if you follow the recipe as written. You also see user reviews to know whether the recipe is worth trying out.
For those that have joined the wearables fitness world or are thinking about trying one, Garmin Connect (Free for iOS, Android) is a great choice. Users will see what workouts or daily routine exercises are helping to reach their fitness goals and it pairs perfectly with many of the Garmin Fitness Trackers available today.
I plan on using a fitness tracker along with a weight loss app to monitor my goals. I was under my pre-baby weight prior to Halloween, but the holiday binge has got me back up a few pounds. I’m ready to shake it loose!
4) Daily Burn. Create your own personalized workout plans with Daily Burn Streaming fitness. A free app, Daily Burn allows you to choose which workouts you want to watch on-demand.
You are watching full-length, HD-quality workout videos with on-screen guidance. Workouts range from as little as 15 minutes to over an hour, so you can truly customize it to your time limits and fitness needs. I love using Daily Burn because I can do it right in the comfort of my living room, or anywhere I am when on the go.
Diet Tracking Apps
Diet means the type of foods you consume, not necessarily a way to lose weight. By tracking the type of eating you do, you are more likely to maintain a healthy ‘diet’.
5) Lose It!. A great weight loss app to help you track calories.
It tracks your caloric intake and monitors your diet, helping you manage your weekly calorie budget and ensure that you are consuming the proper foods.
