Since the introduction of apps into society, the world’s population has become heavily reliant on them for everyday aspects of life.
Some people listen to a podcast through an app, while others conduct banking queries or even find love using one. When it comes to health and nutrition, there is an abundance of options on offer too.
The health and fitness sector has a comprehensive offering in this space, but nutrition-specific apps are a relatively new thing. In order to smash your personal best in the gym or reach your goal of becoming a professional soccer player, what we put into our bodies is one of the most important aspects of the journey, and requires planning and thought. Thankfully, an array of apps available today provide that type of support and enable someone to unlock their potential.
It is certainly a saturated space, though. Not every product on offer works or is even suitable for a specific person. It’s ultimately about assessing your options and then deciding on the platform which is best suited to you and your dietary needs. Even some of the world’s best athletes get it wrong on occasions, as pointed out in Warren Ashurst’s article on unusual sporting diets, but they tend to have vast teams of staff helping them get back on track. For non-professionals, it can be even harder to maintain a healthy diet and learn about nutrition. Until now, anyway.
If you’re keen to master your nutrition with the help of an app, here is a look at some of the best nutritional apps available for download right now.
Eat 2 Win Nutrition
At the time of writing, the Eat 2 Win Nutrition app costs $4.99 a month and is mightily impressive. Specifically designed for athletes, you can track and log your eating habits, access customized meal plans, and create team challenges. On top of this, the app offers a detailed insight into dietary requirements based on an individual’s weight management goals and caloric demands. The team challenges are a particular benefit, though, especially for people who might lack motivation from time to time. You can also get rated by fellow members on your progress around your eating habits.
In need of a coach? If so, then look no further than Noom Coach. Connecting people to nutrition coaches, the app will provide you with vital support from people in the know. With the app essentially acting as a tracking tool for you and your chosen nutrition coach, you’re guaranteed to get good results with the expert help on offer.
Initially a free app before having to pay for a monthly or annual subscription, the Nutrino app comes with the basic tracking features required to maintain a healthy and nutritious diet. The app features diet plan help, food recommendations, you can locate healthy restaurants nearby to you, and a whole lot more. Nutrino is a slick app also, boasting great graphics with important data and overall offering a solid user experience.
Costing an annual fee of $29, Lose It is another great option. A well-designed and easy-to-grasp product, users can log their food and exercise routines easily. As well as offering advice around nutrition, the app also highlights healthy restaurants in the area and lists all supermarket brands in alphabetical order when shopping too. Lose It isn’t as detailed as other nutrition apps, but it still represents an excellent option.
Other nutrition apps worth exploring are Calorie Counter & Food Diary by My Net Diary, Diet Point Weight Loss, My Plate by Livestrong, and Meal Logger.
