Calories are those all-important energy making things that your body needs in constant flow to keep you going. However, too much of a good thing can be problematic, and too many calories can lead to overeating and weight gain.
Good thing that there are several websites and apps to keep the calories at an acceptable level. Here are some of the best.
MyFitnessPal is an extremely popular calorie counter, and for good reason. It tracks your weight, and calculates a recommended daily calorie intake based on the number of calories you’ve consumed and burned by exercising.
In order to do this, the app has a database with over 5 million food items as well as a barcode scanner to scan in packaged food items to more accurately count your calories. It also has a well-designed food diary and an exercise log. And if you have a fitness tracking device you’re using, MyFitnessPal can likely sync with it to include its data in the exercise log.
What’s better? MyFitnessPal tracks goal progress and allows you to chat forums with fellow users for added support.
