Many men and women are constantly trying to watch what they eat but it so difficult when its hard to record on a daily basis what you put into your body. Not everyone has the time or can be bothered to carry a pen and paper, search for a product’s nutrient information, and write down all the calories they have eaten, and then add them all together. It is simply too time-consuming.

However, thankfully due to the technological advances of smartphones, all you have to do is download a calorie counter app for your mobile phone. This is simple, easy, effective, and won’t take any time out of your daily routine. Moreover, everyone carries a phone with them so it is not like you will be carrying around any extra materials either… say goodbye to the pens and paper! You can find healthy recipes online with ease too. The ground turkey recipes available here are a great example.

The only trouble with a calorie counter app is deciding which is the best one available on your mobile market. One option to consider is the Calorie Counter by FatSecret. This calorie counting app is that it is one hundred percent free to download. This means that there is no risk factor.

The FatSecret Calorie Counter is simple and easy to use yet it is extremely effective nonetheless. You can keep a day to day food diary so that you are aware of what you are eating on a daily basis, and you can go back and see what you have eaten the day before or the day before that.

In addition to this, you also have an exercise diary as well as a food diary, so you can keep track of all the calories burnt. This is highly beneficial as it gives the bigger picture and a true reflection.

The best thing about this app, in my opinion, is that it has a barcode scanner and a manual barcode entrance feature, thus instead of searching for a product to enter into your food diary you can simply scan it. It will be just like working in a supermarket! Nevertheless, if your product is not available or you would prefer to search for it instead then you can.

FatSecret’s Calorie Counter also has recipe and meal ideas to help you out along the way which is a great added bonus. In addition to this, the foods it entails do not only include products you buy from the shops but also meals from your favorite restaurants so if you are eating out you can still record it in your diary. A journal, weight tracker, and diet calendar will also help you to keep track of how you are doing and make sure you are on the right track.

This is just one example of many similar apps that are on the market today, so take the time to find the best one for you and the one that you enjoying using the most.
