3 Apps to Help You Eat Healthier
Life to Table is committed to helping you make better, well-informed choices when it comes to your food, and we understand that this knowledge isn’t always easily accessible. Learning to eat better takes a lot of hard work and a lot of research, and because many of us have grown accustomed to eating the processed, high-sodium, high-sugar food we see in the stores, making the shift to eating healthier can often be overwhelming. What’s worse, as Stephanie Watson writes for WebMD, without proper guidance, it’s easy to spiral out of a diet, accidentally buy an item that takes away from your diet altogether, or make wrong dieting choices.
Thankfully, the rise of the mobile market has helped make maintaining an informed diet easier. As explained by the company behind mobile-optimized bingo portal Free Bingo Hunter, growth in mobile internet is among the strongest trends on the internet landscape to date, and our increased reliance on mobile technology has resulted in over 1.5 million apps being made available on the different mobile marketing platforms. These days, there is an app for just about anything, and luckily, there are also apps for making good diet choices.
Need a bit of help with buying food that helps you stick to your diet? Try out the following apps:
Fooducate is probably one of the most popular dieting apps out there, because not only does it have an extensive database of food items that have full nutritional information laid out for your to understand, but it also has an active community that can serve as a support group for people who want to begin their weight loss journey. With recipes and discussions, and a food nutrition grading system that’s easy to understand, Fooducate is a great tool to help you make healthier choices.
If one of your biggest problems is not knowing if an item adheres to your diet, ShopWell should be perfect for you. The app allows you to scan item’s barcode, and based on a health and diet profile you provide the app beforehand, it tells you whether the said item fits into your diet, or if you should consider purchasing something else. It doesn’t just end there, however, as the app also gives you suggestions for better choices for the item. It’s also a great choice for those who have food allergies.
If you’re more comfortable with knowing just how much nutrients and vitamins you’re getting, Foodle could be a valuable tool. It has nutrition facts on over 8,500 food items, and logs the food you eat so you know just how much vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fats & fatty acids, sterols, etc. you are consuming on a daily basis. This is excellent for those who want a more technical, detailed view of their diet as well.
