The Benefits of Calorie Counting Apps
Whether you are trying to lose or gain weight you need to know how many calories/kilojoules you are consuming each day so you can adjust accordingly.
Most women need 1,600–2,400 daily calories to maintain their weight. Most men need 2,000–3,000 calories. So removing 500 calories each day should result in weight loss. Eating fewer can lead to weight loss.
1 calorie = 4.18 kilojoules
We love a free app called MyNetDiary. You simply download it (see below) and put in your details. Then whenever you eat something you either scan the barcode of the packing and the App will automatically calculate the calories, or you can enter the name of the food and the App will give you suggestions.
It really is so easy to use and it's free!
Here are some tips for removing about 500 calories from your daily intake to help you lose weight.
