LIVESTRONG.COM – Calorie Tracker LITE by Demand Media, Inc. is a health and fitness app that is dedicated to tracking your fitness and diet with a daily calorie tracker.
If you're looking for help when it comes to losing weight, being able to track your calories and your physical activity through the day is a fabulous place to start. While the LITE version doesn't include synchronization between devices or with the website, LIVESTRONG.com, it still provides you with plenty of great useable features.
How the app works is to track the calories you consume daily as well as your exercise. You begin by programming in your weight loss goal and then each day input your food and activity. The food journal gives you more than one million fitness items and foods to input.
As far as the calorie tracker goes, it's more than just counting calories here. It will also track your daily protein intake, carbohydrates, and fat. When you're looking at the exercises they will show you how many calories they burn so you can start planning in advance.
The idea is that this app actually works as a companion piece to MyPlate at LIVESTRONG.com, which is a free service found on the website.
LIVESTRONG.COM – Calorie Tracker LITE was updated on Nov. 28, 2012 and currently has 2,034 customer ratings with an average rating of four and a half out of five stars.
What I liked about this app was the fact I was able to take it with me on the go. This means even if I was out for lunch, working all day at the office, or away for a weekend I could still keep track of my daily exercise and calories.
