Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) February 07, 2013
HCG Diet Direct releases a tip sheet on the most helpful smart phone applications to provide dieters with additional support. Many dieters are finding it advantageous to access smart phone apps (applications) designed to function as dieting and/or weight loss maintenance tools.
Tip Sheet: Smart Phone Apps Dieters Can Use to Their Advantage:
Dieters’ Choice: MyFitnessPal (Calorie Counter by MyFitnessPal.com)
This application comes highly recommended. It is recognized by dieters as a useful guide for those still learning to define serving sizes and estimate caloric intake of various foods. It also offers the ability to socially interact with others and can be an effective form of motivation. The MyFitnessPal app is just one of many available smart phone apps that can be a big help to dieters.
Honorable Mentions Include:
SlimKicker by Snubbr Inc.: Calorie counting, fitness tracking, personalized fitness tips/advice and a bonus “challenge” option that functions like popular video game apps.
Food Diary Calorie Counter by Felt Tip, Inc.: This is a good food diary and calorie counter option for those who don’t want the interactive option or any additional features.
Food Scanner by DailyBurn: This is a good option for dieters who will be eating prepackaged food items. This app allows dieters to scan the UPC barcode of the foods and view complete nutritional values before incorporating the information into their daily food log.
Weight Loss by ModiFace: This app has been advertised as the most comprehensive weight loss application that consists of weight loss simulation (using the dieters’ own photo). Many additional tools are available on top of the simulation of weight loss.
Dieters of today are more digitally capable than ever before. Many have even become more digitally capable in comparison to their capability in other arenas. So much time is spent typing, that many are not comfortable when expected to write by hand. So many forms of documentation and record keeping now have a digital standard that many find themselves uncomfortable staying on task, organized or productive when they aren’t utilizing some form of digital tracking system or record of activity.
In addition, statistics show that 80% of consumers will be using mobile phones by the end of 2013. Of the 80%, a large percentage will be using smart phones. Individuals who use their smart phones regularly have them on their person more than any other item (including wallets, purses, etc.). This makes the smart phone the obvious choice for dieters who are attempting to keep a daily record of their meals and activities or a weight loss journal.
HCG Diet Direct recommends MyFitnessPal because it is versatile. It provides dieters with information, social interaction and motivation, and organization of weight loss journal information. The versatility of this app (and other similar apps) has made it a success amongst all types of dieters.
Dr. J. Ronald Willis of HCG Diet Direct said, “Dieters need to use the tools that make them the most comfortable and successful in reaching their weight loss goals. If the only thing that changes when using a smart phone app as your weight loss journal is that the frequency of journal entries increases, it’s already beneficial.”
HCG Diet Direct provides modern dieters with weight loss plans and products that work. HCG Diet Direct’s weight loss plans are based on the use of homeopathic weight loss products. Dieters are encouraged to learn the basics of healthy living including: portion control, awareness of the calorie, healthy food options, simple recipes that can be made in the home, the detrimental effects of frequent dining out and/or fast foods.
