Lose weight thanks to an application downloaded on his smartphone, is – this actually possible or is it only a new gadget?
Today, new technology such as smartphones can do things much more easily (including diet) at an unbeatable price! Because, as you know, most are free, and it's great!
For example, an application like Runkeeper allows its users to get free a running program adapted to their level, receive a summary of race, compare, see the calories burned as well as a variety of other tools.
This type of application turns out to be a smart and fun investment, because it allows both to monitor his weight, exercise, but also to manage its power supply. A good application for weight loss is useful at different levels and saves time and money.
For coaches like me slimming, it gives a significant resource of details for a vision more precise on the progress of my customers.
Finally, the application also provides comfort both of the coaches who know the actual number of hours of training and food monitoring with more precision.
However, to choose the best application for losing weight is not an easy thing.
Each has various more or less useful features and it can be difficult to make the right choice.
I wanted to test myself these applications to see if it was possible to lose weight only with the help of your Smartphone and thus help you in your quest to thinness:
Here are the apps I've used in the past three weeks: I have tried the free versions.
The application allows to get a weight loss program walking or running at your level and you give the balance sheets of your journey at the end of activity and allows you to save them.
The interface is nice and easy to use. The most that I love is that one can use his music (Spotify or iTunes) and that you have a message indicating how many minutes we have to do. We can program it every 5, 10 or 15 minutes, which is motivating! In addition, we can connect it with many other applications like my My Diet Coach or MyFitnessPal.
Review: Good application if you want to lose weight with running or walking.
Application that gives you a specific program at your level to run or walk to lose weight and with increase in the rhythm of the music according to your program. You can also choose a coach who motivates you throughout your career. The French voice (a female voice) I must confess that she resembled the voice of a robot, which was quite motivating.
The app looks nice and simple but I couldn't connect my Spotify (only iTunes) music… So I quickly abandoned this application.
Balance sheet: difficulty to connect the app to my music, difficulty in finding the motivation with the voice of a robot and no connection with other applications.
An application that helps see winked his sleep, physical activity, and its daily calories.
Review: I've not really used because it gives details only if you buy the Wifi devices attached to them such as Fitbit, Polar and other detectors of activities and not daily calculators.
MYDIETCOACH / MY DIET (French version) COACH
It's a virtual coach who motivates us every day, with daily to choose alerts and commitments we made with itself as not eating chocolate, for example.
My Coach weight loss application is versatile and well made.
She takes the role of a diary system allowing us to control calories.
Balance sheet: easy to use, very feminine design, beautiful colours, fun and you can put pictures of yourself at each stage as well as pictures that motivate us.
It is also possible to see the evolution of weight curve, receive and change its motivations alerts and there is a SOS button to avoid cravings.
The application is very feminine and fun with an avatar which suits us and that we win as one loses weight or clothing that we practice good habits.
With one click, it gives the total calories that you swallow and uses the bar code! Impressive to me because I live in Northern Europe and it recognizes all brands!
It is versatile with not only your daily calorie goal for weight loss but it gives the consistency of foods and what they bring in nutrients. For people like me, anxious to have a calorie protein intake daily, it's great.
Balance sheet: easy to use, I loved instantly but I have tried other similar applications. However these are not at all worth MyFitnessPal quality. I'm back there. The most: it connects with Runkeeper and so record sports activities directly.
RUNPOD NIKE + IPOD
I tried for a very short time these 2 applications that I found really benefits compared to other already tried. So I abandoned very quickly.
Overall the tests for apps to lose weight.
For me, this has been fun but sometimes annoying because I spent more time trying to connect and adjust the (Record) application simply use it and go running with.
I find that all the tested applications are good but one I preferred and that I still use today is Run Keeper, even if I have a doubt about the information at the level of the GPS (quite a few errors of mileage). This is by far the more simple, fast and efficient if you want to lose weight with running or walking. The paid version does not offer much more so the free is sufficient.
Five main a good application for Slim Fast and good features:
- Easy to use
- That quickly connects to music
- Versatile: who counts calories, records the activities
- Gives an overview at a glance information
For me, this has been a good experience, and I continue to use Runkeeper and MyFitnessPal. Through these applications, for the first time, I realized that I was sometimes eating large amounts of food and especially too many sweet desserts!
