This is what I’m using to track my weight. They also make a fantastic apps so that you can track on the go.
Here’s what I like. I like that it’s easy to use and that I can view reports so I can better manage my diet. You also get guidance based on what you have logged so you can modify your diet better. They project possible 5 week weight loss if you ate what you logged that day every day. So for example it would say, ‘If you ate like this every day you would weigh X in 5 weeks’.
The major reason I love using this app as opposed to Weight Watchers is that you really see first hand how what you eat has consequences and you can make more informed decisions. I find that I’m logging my food and being confident about my choices and feeling more guided. I haven’t felt too deprived but I do see that 1200 calories isn’t a lot so I think hard about how to make it count. Which is good. Plus it connects to my Fitbit which is nice.
2. Whole Foods 365 Brands
You pretty much have to take out a mortgage to shop at Whole Foods. Personally I prefer Trader Joes because we get more for our money however, I do love Whole Foods’ 365 brand. Most store brands are pretty horrible but these guys do it right. Where they really nail it is in their frozen foods section. Most major brands like Dole, Target & pals kind of screw you on price and how much you get.
The thing I love about both the Trader Joes and 365 brands is that their frozen vegetables actually taste decent. Most frozen vegetables taste like a f*cking punishment.
I’m not sure if there’s an Android version but there should be. I like this because I can program all of my workouts (cardio and strength) as well as get demos for the strength training portions. The downside is that it doesn’t have a lot of machine workouts for your gams but I think there’s a reason for this so that’s ok, I just add it.
