There's no denying the fact that we are tied to our phones. Texts, emails, phone calls, virtual meetings, alarms, timers, flashlights, social media, if you can think of something involved in everyday life, it's on your phone. If we are going to be tied to our phones, let's use them to benefit our health. There are over 250,000 fitness and health apps available for smart devices. That's a little overwhelming when you are trying to decide what to do, which ones I need, and which ones will benefit me the most! Let's look at fitness and health apps and see how we can improve our health by using them.
Vegetables, fruit, and lean proteins are good for you, there's no doubt, but everything has calories. EVERYTHING!! Sometimes we adopt the misconception that if something is healthy, we can eat a lot of it. Lettuce has calories; it really does!! It may not be a lot of calories, but they do exist. I know I operated for a long time under the assumption that if the food was healthy, I could eat as much as I wanted, and it wouldn't affect my weight. We all tell ourselves many misconceptions about eating because it can be so hard to follow a healthy, strict diet plan. Enter diet and health apps. There are a lot out there, I know; I've used several. I have had success losing weight using diet apps, but it doesn't come easy. It takes time and work to plan out healthy meals, log them in the app, find their calorie content, and fix and adjust to make sure you don't go over a certain calorie allotment per day. It's not easy; if you want to be more muscular, you can't be lazy and make it work. Weight loss apps can help you in a lot of ways. They can:
A study done in 2010 showed that over 88% of those in the survey that had joined an internet-based weight loss community of others on the same journey found more motivation in being part of a group and had more success than those who chose not to join in the group program. Support is always an added benefit in any journey, especially in a weight loss exercise journey!
For those interested in becoming physically active, fit, and more muscular, there are so many great fitness apps out there to help you take control of your physical health, which can lead to healthy weight loss. Fitness apps can provide many significant bits of help for you, some of which are:
These are just a few of the many things that fitness apps can do for you. If you are willing to put in the work, this could be an excellent tool for your fitness journey!
There are so many great diet and exercise apps, each with its pros and cons. Which ones are best for you depend on your own goals and lifestyle. Whether you use an app, a nutritionist, a personal trainer, or a specific diet plan, the rate of success you will achieve depends on your drive and how willing you are to put in the hard work to see the results you desire. To be rich in your health requires hard work and sacrifice, just like being wealthy in finance. The best apps for you will be those you USE and put in the time to track your calories and track your exercise. When we put in the hard work, go the extra mile, and make the sacrifices, we will see the achievement of our fitness and diet goals. Being healthier is always a good goal to strive towards, with a happier you as a great benefit!
