Having the desire to start a diet is easy and enrolling in the gym too. What is actually difficult is to maintain the commitment to do both and achieve your desired goal.
Losing weight, reducing measurements or following a healthier diet are some of the most common goals among women, and new applications for smartphones aim to be your personal trainer, nutritionist and greatest motivator in this journey towards the body shape you desire.
The calorie counter MyFitnessPal is one of the most popular diet apps, both on the App Store and on Google Play, in which it has a relevant amount of positive reviews. The app works like a food diary and allows the user to record all the food consumed to get an idea of how many calories was consumed.
Depending on the type of food, it is possible to determine the percentage of macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and fat) within the allowed calories to establish healthy habits.
One advantage is the integration with other applications, such as Garmin Connect, BTFIT, Runtastic, among others, to have a calorie balance presented. MyFitnessPal also offers a database and bar reader, which facilitates the registration of food.
The application offers a premium version, at US $ 9.99 / month or US $ 49.99 / year. Additionally, features include the absence of ads, exclusive content and food analysis. Interested users can do a free trial for a one-month period.
As the name implies, BetterMe aims to help the user become a better version of himself. Aimed at the female audience, it offers training focused on the four most common complaints of women: sagging breasts, flabby arms, belly fat and thick legs and thighs.
Based on the needs of each one, the service offers a program with several exercises, illustrated by short animations and descriptions.
Dedicated to food, the big difference is that BetterMe takes into account different food preferences, such as vegetarian, ketogenic, gluten-free and lactose-free.
Without real focusing on calorie counting, the app offers meal suggestions with recipes according to each person’s dietary pattern. The application is free, but it also has a paid version, which promises a higher level of customization of the program. The subscription costs $ 7.50 / month.
3. Nike Training Club
The ideal app to perform physical exercises and give a boost to the performance of your diet, without having to spend money on the gym and personal trainer.
Full of different exercises, it has more than 100 types of training, to fit the physical conditioning of different users. And it also brings audiovisual instructions given by Nike’s Master Trainers, to help give that little motivation if necessary.
The Nike Training Club app works with fully personalized workouts that adapt to your needs. You can manually insert into the App any or all physical activity you have done at intervals outside of training, so that the application can balance your training routine, making your way of working out much more effective.
After a few months using this app regularly you will have more stamina than a horse running among the Kentucky Derby contenders.
Focused on activities tailored to the user’s characteristics, the Fitbit app provides personal training anytime, anywhere.
Through a test of skills and aptitudes, the App develops a routine of physical activities adapted for each user. The workouts are super varied so that you don’t get bored. You’ll be able to work out your butt, legs, arms, back or running according to your pace, without adopting generic training programs with specific equipment.
Fitbit is a super dynamic application, providing videos at different angles, to show how the movements should be performed correctly, along with audio tracks with music, improving your workout mood and rhythm.
