There is no better fitness friend than MyFitnessPal. It makes tracking your food, calories and nutrients easy with a database of over 5 million foods. Can’t find your food or meal? Enter it in manually or scan a UPC code. It even integrates with fitness trackers like Fitbit, your Apple Watch and other helpful apps like Runtastic. You can also input/import recipes and calculate nutritional values of your made from scratch meals. This app has saved me many a time when I wanted to eat something I knew I shouldn’t, simply by pre-inputting it into my food diary and seeing what an impact it make on my day.

Whether you’re a runner, gym rat or someone looking to just get started, Runtastic Results can help you by creating a 12-week customized Training Plan (based on an initial fit test) that you can do anywhere since it’s completely based on body weight and uses no equipment. But make no mistake, this simple training program WILL make you sore with full body movements like Burpees and Mountain Climbers. It even comes with a Health & Nutrition Guide. I personally use this app often while traveling and can’t say enough good things about it’s effective workouts. It’s also great for those days where you just can’t manage to squeeze in a visit to the gym.

  1. Thanks for such an extensive list on Apps. We really have come a long way and I love how technology is helping us in our everyday needs. Have used a few of the Apps you mentioned, but curious about Digit and secondly Break Free since I need to keep my budget under control and also get my phone time in check. How was your experience using these two apps?
