Best Apps for Your Waistline and Wallet

By: ERINN BOON

Let’s face it, whether we like it or not, we are living in an extremely technological society, and although it may be overbearing at times, there are some great tools out there to be taken advantage of. I know that I’m not the only one who has way too many Iphone apps and yet I always find more that I just have to have. So in respect to our not-so-great economy and my fellow broke college students, I’ve compiled a list of the five best free nutrition apps available.

MyFitnessPal

MyFitnessPal is an app that I use constantly on a daily basis and find extremely helpful. Containing a database with over one million foods, this app is a miraculous calorie counter and food log. You begin by creating a profile where you set your current and target weight and how quickly you want to lose that extra luggage.

Restaurant Nutrition

With over 250 Restaurants, this restaurant app by Foundation Healthcare Network is heaven-sent. The next time you’re going out to eat with your girlfriends, check out the different options and nutrition facts so you are prepared before you get there.

Fooducate

This is a great app to have in the grocery store! You can scan barcodes as you shop to compare foods and see which brands and options are best for you! It does all the work, breaking down each label and even assigning a health grade to each product.

Target WEIGHT

Like it says in the title, the app is perfect for daily weight tracking and even includes a BMI measurement as well.

Water For Your Body Lite

This free and “lite” version is extremely helpful when it comes to tracking your water consumption. It may seem arbitrary, but I know I’m not the only one who can’t remember how much I have consumed come dinner time. Sponsored by Brita, this app is interactive; aiding you in finding the amount of water your body needs daily.
