I am a visual person. Whenever I’m doing something I need to see it. As I started gearing towards a healthier life. I downloaded every app available because I wanted something to help me. But after a while, I narrowed it down to a few ones that have stuck. Here are the best fitness and health apps to aid your journey. These are from my experience and how they worked for me.
By far the best tracking app. MyFitnessPal tracks your food and your exercises. They have a lot of food options already registered so it’s easy to find what you’re looking for. You have to manually input your workouts which I like. Also at the end of the day, you can enter your entry and it gives you an estimate about your day and how much you can potentially lose in 5 weeks. It also warns you if you’re eating too little which is very important when active. It’s really easy to use and straight forward. I feel like it doesn’t nag you to eat a certain way or your choices. It’s simple and just helps to track. Check it out here.
Lifesum is another tracking app. I heard a lot of people online talking about it so I decided to try it. The app is bright and easy to use. It probably has my favorite interface. But it wasn’t my favorite overall. I do like how it tells you how much you’ve burned off from walking and how it gives a rating for each food you log in. It even rates your week which can be helpful. But one thing I didn’t like what that it adjusts your calorie count for the day. So let’s say you’re trying to eat 1200. You can potentially be eating more because it takes your steps calories off and then work out and can still tell you that you have 1200 calories remaining. Even if you already ate and hit your correct amount. (I hope that makes sense). But overall, it’s a pretty decent app and was fun to use.

Couch to 5K
I am not a runner but I do want to try. Couch to 5k is a good app to help you start slow and build up to run at least a 5k. It has a plan for each day and guides you through runs. However, it can be kind of stressing to your body to run every day and it doesn’t freely give you an option to pause or have a break. This one does cost money though. But if you’re looking to start from scratch and get running, this one is a good one. Check it out here.
If you have an iPhone, the Health app is actually so great! I feel like many don’t utilize it to its maximum capability. It tracks your steps, energy, standing, sleep, and heart rate (if you have the watch). It also can keep data like body measurements, health records, vitals, and more. So you can compare things over time. You can sync up MyFitnessPal to it so it can update information regularly. It doesn’t track food as it mainly focuses on tracking health aspects. However, I do feel like it works better having an Apple Watch since your phone may not always be on you. But overall, it’s a decent app.
Here are some of the best fitness and health apps. What do you like to use?
