Now I'm not one for fad diets, healthy eating with moderate exercise is the way to go so although this app is a calorie counter I shan't be taking it to the extreme.
You enter you details, weight, height, age etc and then your goal weight and the amount you would like to lose each week. The app then works out how many calories you are allowed each day and then you add your food intake throughout the day which gets taken off your total and any exercise that you do is calculated in calories and is added back on. The fun part is scanning the bar codes of your food to add up your calories. As I said before I am just using this as a guide to see what I do eat but I was very surprised to find that 1 custard cream is 56 calories and if you're like me I can munch my way through 3 or 4 with a cup of tea. Hopefully the novelty of this app won't wear off too quickly and although the app told me if I did as well as I did today eating only 1209 calories and exercising for 20 minutes I will reach my goal in 5 weeks I don't think that is going to happen as Paul and I are out for breakfast again this week. Healthy living not starving is my motto!
