Published on 2 Jan 2014
In many ways, the beginning of each year serves as an ideal catalyst for making changes. One such change we’ll all inevitably strive to achieve involves living a healthier lifestyle. And of course, there are a plethora of apps to help with that.
The Weight Watchers mobile app provides an ideal healthy eating companion, tracking what you consume in relation to your weight-loss goals. While non-subscribers have access to some of the app’s features, people who’ve joined the Weight Watchers program can take full advantage of app functionality including the Snap & Track feature that lets you take a picture of your meal and track it later. Interactive charts help you stay on top of your weight-loss progress, while opting in to receive push notifications offers meal- and weight-tracking reminders to help form healthy habits.
The app also has a barcode scanner that helps you take the guesswork out of determining ideal portion sizes when shopping at the grocery store. For instance, scanning a can of soup's barcode will tell you its number of points so you can make informed decisions at the point of purchase.
Along with the weight-tracking capabilities, the app is packed with thousands of searchable foods, recipes and meals, should you need some healthy culinary inspiration. The app also features a number of workout ideas, spanning the other tenant of healthy living.
If you aren't a subscriber, don't fret! The app has a couple of educational tools like featured recipes and articles to help you make smart food choices, including Cheat Sheets on drinks and pizza for nights out on the town.
