By Rizwan Ahmad - 21 November 2012 1 Comment
Apple’s iPhone is a device so great that it can do almost anything you need it to. It can help you make phone calls, keep track of your daily schedule, catch up with your favorite television shows and even help you shed those extra pounds. The iTunes App Store has an entire category of applications dedicated to fitness and staying in shape. When you browse through the immense selection looking for something to help you out on your quest, you will soon notice that some of these applications are most certainly better than others.

Calorie Counter and Diet Tracker
“Calorie Counter and Diet Tracker” is just that – a way to track the amount of calories you’re consuming on a daily basis. If you don’t know the total amount of calories that were in a meal, you can use your iPhone’s Internet connection and the app’s search functionality to get as close as possible. This app is a cheap, efficient way of keeping track of just what’s going into your body.

Menu Planner
If the previous app was for tracking things that you’ve already eaten, “Menu Planner” is for tracking things that you will eat in the future. This app can be used to put together easy, healthy meals that you actually enjoy eating. It's a really good way to plan out your weekly shop and what your calorie intake will be for each day - while still giving you some room for treats.

iPersonalTrainer – Fitness Workouts
“iPersonalTrainer” is an extensive database filled with various types of workouts and detailed instructions for how to do them. Not content with just that bit of information, the app also offers full high definition video demonstrations of each workout. If you’re not quite sure how to do something just by reading a description, watch the video associated with it to get a much clearer picture of how to work out effectively and correctly.

Get in Shape
“Get in Shape” is an app that is filled with diet suggestions to meet your needs. If you want to start eating healthy but just aren’t sure where to begin, “Get in Shape” is more than capable of getting you headed in the right direction. You can choose healthy meals based on the types of food you want to eat and the resources you have available to you.

Weight Recorder
“Weight Recorder” is a great, visual way to track your progress as your diet progresses. You input your weight using the app’s control panel and can track your progress through a series of detailed graphs. If you’re in need of a little encouragement to help you keep going, nothing is more encouraging than a professional-looking graph that shows you exactly how much weight you’ve lost up until now.

These Apps are a great way to supplement your diet and fitness regime and well worth looking into if you want to be a little healthier, thinner and fitter.
