5 free weight loss apps to log calories, exercise, and more

Jan 11, 2023

January 11, 2023 - Advertisement - Losing weight is challenging. Spending money on expensive weight loss apps makes the experience even more difficult. Your journey to recovery shouldn’t be filled with companies asking you to hand over your debit or credit card. - Advertisement - To help you out, we’ve done the research and handpicked the best weight loss apps that you can download for free. Some of the apps we selected are well-known, such as MyFitnessPal, but there are also some that you might not have associated with weight loss. - Advertisement - Breathe in, looking for will and determination within yourself. You bring the patience, and we’ll bring you the best free weight loss apps to download for your journey. MyFitnessPal key features Log calories with a massive food database Track your workouts and fitness Sync with fitness trackers and services myfitness pal Available at iOS and Android MyFitnessPal is an app that’s so popular it needs little introduction, but we’ll give you a brief overview of the reigning king at the top of our guide anyway. Launched in 2005, MyFitnessPal provides an all-in-one tool for people who want to lose weight, get in shape or keep track of their calorie intake. The app combines a food diary with a database of 14 million foods and a fitness plan to help you burn extra calories and reach your goals. We love MyFitnessPal because it offers a complete experience, has proven itself over the years and has a huge ecosystem of supported products. You can connect over 50 apps and devices, including Gamin, Fitbit, Samsung Health, Apple Health, and MapMyRun, to keep your entire fitness world in one place. You can upgrade your MyFitnessPal subscription to Premium ($80 per year or $20 per month) for additional healthy habit guides and custom nutrition tracking. Still, we believe that most users will find a lot of value in the free base tier of the app. However, if you want to try it out, your first month of Premium is free. key features Log your daily calorie intake Track your activity and workouts Sync with select fitness trackers and services lose it! Available at iOS and Android lose it! It hasn’t got all the recognition, but it is definitely one of the best weight loss apps out there. A bright and straightforward interface makes it easy to track meals. lose it! Allows you to track what you eat through a food database as well as any other app and breaks down the calories you log into easily digestible labels and graphs. In addition to meals, you can also log other relevant information, such as water intake and exercise. lose it! There are fewer supported services than some weight loss apps, but you can still connect many of your favorite apps and devices, including Fitbit, Garmin, Strava, and Apple Health. You can also gain insight into your eating patterns and learn how certain foods affect your daily progress. lose it! is a free app to use. If you want to upgrade to a premium subscription for $40 a year or $190 for a lifetime, you’ll gain access to a personalized weight loss plan as well as exercise and meal plans. pro tip Gym fees can add up when you’re working on fitness and wellness goals. But you can open a home gym for less than $100. key features Fitbit Available at iOS and Android Here’s a surprise! The Fitbit app isn’t just for people who have a Fitbit. Even without a dedicated Fitbit device, you can still use the Fitbit app to monitor your activity. Using your smartphone’s sensors, the Fitbit can track your daily steps, miles walked and calories burned – although slightly less accurately than a dedicated Fitbit. If you buy a Fitbit in the future, you can keep your existing data without starting over. Like all good weight loss apps, Fitbit goes beyond fitness and into the world of nutrition. You can log your meals and snacks in the Fitbit to keep track of the calories you’ve consumed. However, the food database is not as robust as other apps. Another bonus feature — if you decide to grab a Fitbit wearable device — is its ability to track your sleep. According to the researchers, you may gain better insight into your daily routine and ideally get a more restful night of sleep, which may affect weight loss. The cheapest Fitbit trackers cost $60 for the Fitbit Ace 3 for kids and $70 for the Fitbit Inspire 2 for adults. pro tip Meal prep can help you save money. You can also eat healthy by preparing a wholesome meal whenever it’s time for a meal or snack. key features Find diets that work for your lifestyle Get meal plans that include up to 4 recipes/day Log meals using the search tool or barcode scanner lifelong Available at iOS and Android Lifesum Health App is another excellent option for individuals who want to control their weight.

If you’re having trouble getting on the right dieting path, Lifesum may be able to point you in the right direction. key features Set weight loss goals and track your progress Count calories on the go Get access to hundreds of healthy recipes MyNetDiary Available at iOS and Android MyNetDiary may sound like just another calorie-counting app, but it offers a complete weight loss solution for those in need of help.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) What is the most effective weight loss app? Not all weight loss apps share metrics and users have different goals, so it can be difficult to pinpoint any one as most effective. Our top pick for the best free weight loss app is MyFitnessPal, which allows you to log calories and exercise. MyFitnessPal also includes recipes and pieces of inspiration to help you achieve your health goals and lose weight. Have MyFitnessPal or Lose It! better? MyFitnessPal and Lose It! Best weight loss apps. We believe that most readers will find success and pleasure using either of these. However, we gave the top spot to MyFitnessPal because it supports so many additional services and apps. We recommend trying both – they are free after all – and then choose the one you like best. Is Noom Better Than MyFitnessPal? Noom is a weight loss app that focuses heavily on the psychology of weight loss. While Noom is a great app, it’s far from a free weight loss app. MyFitnessPal, on the other hand, is free to use and includes many food logging tools of a similar genre. If you’re unsure, take a free trial of Noom to find out which is best for you. Michael Archambault is a senior writer at The Penny Hoarder specializing in technology.
