Better Nutrition? There’s an App for That

Posted: March 13, 2017

Managing calories can be as important as managing money. And now it’s easy to watch calories thanks to technology: Tracking apps for diet have handy features:

  • Many are free — unless you decide to upgrade to a premium version
  • Available in different languages
  • Can be used on a tablet or desktop by anyone without a smartphone
  • Scan the bar code on a food label to enter your nutrition information
  • Many can be synced with activity tracking devices

Here are some we checked out and can recommend: MapMyFitness, LoseIt, and FatSecret. You can explore which is right for you.

Hence, while an app can be a very helpful tool, we encourage you to seek out the expert advice of a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and a behavioral support specialist. These professionals can help  support long-term success and lasting lifestyle changes.

If you are a CHP patient, you can contact any of CHP’s  practice locations to learn about nutrition counseling services at our various sites in the Berkshires.
