4 Apps That Help You Eat Healthy

4 Apps that make healthy eating simple to do.

The weather is getting warmer and you know what that means. There are no more bulky sweaters and long pants to hide behind. That's why I am making an effort to eat healthier with swimsuit season quickly approaching. Eating healthier just got easier in the digital age. There's an app for that! If you are someone who needs a little help to keep you on track and you are always on the go, try an app for eating healthy to keep your diet right where it needs to be- and your waistline, too!

Platform: Android, Apple iPhone
Price: free – $9.99, depending on version

For those of us not versed in the “language” or nutrition labels, Fooducate allows you scan the barcode of a product or type in its name to find out the total calories, fat, sodium and other ingredients in that product. If you like a ratings system, it can also score the food for healthiness.

Platform: Android, Apple iPhone and iPad
Price: free!

It's free, and it helps you eat free- form GMOs and other foods that have chemicals you may want to avoid. This app lists “green” foods and “red” foods, with green meaning “go” and red meaning “stop,” of course! It will also help you locate stores that refuse to carry anything with GMOs.
Platform: Android, BlackBerry, Apple iPhone and iPad
Price: Free!

This app has just about everything you need to succeed in your weight loss journey. It comes with  an easy to use food diary and allows access to calorie counts for more than 3 million foods. You can list your own recipes and meals, share with others, and set your fitness goals to get a personalized calorie and fitness plan to help you reach them. Did we mention it's free?

Platform: Apple iPhone, iPad
Price: $.99

Super foods boost your immune system, strengthen memory, ward off disease and give you more energy, so why not intake more of them easily with Superfoods- an app that acts as a guidebook to healthful eating, which can make your shopping trips easier and better. This app also offers articles with in-depth information about foods and supplements, and has a “deals” tab that links you to shopping specials.


Do you use an app to help you eat healthier or lose weight? I would love to hear what it is!

  1. I can't remember what it's called (and that's obviously not a good sign) but I have one that tracks calories and whatnot.

  3. I use My Weight HD for the iOS, and I've used My Fitness Pal too. I've downloaded a lot of apps to help weight/health management, but some of them just aren't very good.

  10. Fooducate sounds like a great one. We always read the labels but whether or not we understand all the ingredients is a whole other story.
