Along with exercise, a healthy diet is very important. Gobbling up a cheeseburger after an hour workout isn’t really a healthy choice. You need to have a balanced diet with proper proportions of proteins, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates and fats. However, it isn’t that easy to create a diet plan that meets your fitness needs, and even if you do find one, following it can be difficult.
Like many other problems, Android apps can help with this. There are many Android diet apps available that will let you calculate your calorie intake and offer diet plans. Below you will see four Android diet apps.
1. Diet Assistant
This is a great app if you are looking for some interesting diet plan recommendations and not just a calorie counter. Diet Assistant has a sleek and functional interface that offers everything you will need for your diet plan. To get started you need to create a profile with your current weight, activity, height and other basic info. After that, select the plan that you prefer according to your tastes and requirements.
The plans are very comprehensive with a full weekly diet, and more details can be accessed by clicking on each food. The information includes nutrition facts of each food and details on intake quantity along with tips (if available). You can also track your weight loss with charts, and upgrading to the Pro version removes ads and offers more diet plans.
MyFitnessPal is considered the best calorie counter for its data on over 5,000,000 types of food. The app requires a signup before using it where you can provide all the information about your current health and your goals. After that, it will create a custom diet plan for you that keeps track of your calories according to your needs.
Once it’s all set up (with instructions that are very hand-holding, I must say), you can enter all the food you eat, and it will keep track of the calories. You also need to enter all the workouts you do, so it can manage the burned calories as well. Its custom notifications make the process a lot easier, and it learns from your routine to make the data-entering process a breeze. The app also connects with over fiffy other fitness apps and devices to log data like Fitbit, RunKeeper, Jawbone UP, Garmin and more.
3. Lose weight without dieting
The app’s name might seem like an advertisement for selling instant weight lose pills, but it is actually a great diet app. Lose weight without dieting is an all-in-one diet app that definitely requires you to diet (not sure what the developer was thinking with the name). It has a very simple and eye-catching interface, and it also comes with an animated assistant to give you that personal feel.
The app has everything you need – calorie counter, food and exercise log, diet plans, a calendar to view history and plan future days and more. The statistics section is very robust and offers information in graphs for weight, calories, BWH (body measurements), PFC and water intake. You can also create notes with your mood stamps and take photos of yourself for visual progress. Best of all, it has a virtual rewarding system for motivation, and if you do a good job, you can even unlock the paid version for free (removes ads).
4. Diet Point
Diet Point is similar to Diet Assistant as far as the purpose is concerned, but they both take a unique path to fulfill it. Diet Point comes with 130 diet plans to choose from (some locked in the free version) and has a built-in weight tracker to keep track of your weight. After providing your bio, you need to select a diet plan from the list to start using the app. The app will also recommend diet plans according to your bio, or you can select any plan on your own.
When you select a diet plan, you are prompted to provide your eating times so the app can remind you to eat the food mentioned in the plan. Furthermore, it also automatically creates a shopping list for you according to the selected diet plan to easily shop for food items. If Diet Assistant’s diets plans were not enough, then give Diet Point a try.
Lose weight without dieting is a great app for people who just want everything, but it might be more of a “Jack of all trades, master of none.” If your are just looking for a perfect calorie counter, then there is no better option than MyFitnessPal. You can also download more than one app to get the best of both worlds.
