So you can stop doing math and start enjoying your lunch.
The secret to successful weight loss is, well, no secret: Burn more calories than you take in. As far as working out, most of us have gotten with the exercise program. It’s that calorie counting part that can feel especially hard to stick with. But calorie tracking apps help make logging your food easier. They also offer insight into your eating habits that go beyond the numbers. For example, you may notice that a skipped breakfast leads to a midmorning donut or a well-balanced dinner keeps you from late-night snacking. The mere act of writing, typing, or taking a picture of your meals before or during the actual meal helps you consider your options when selecting what to eat. We asked nutritionists to share their favorite calorie-tracking apps to help you lose the weight — and keep it off.
