One of the greatest attributes coming from these iPods and iPhones are applications that can help you keep track of your nutritional intake and to help motivate you through working out or even to start to work out. Below are five applications you can use to get the best of yourself and turn your iPod or iPhone into your own personal fitness and nutrition coach.
The “Restaurants” Ipod nutrition application – I like this one because if you are on the go or with kids and make a lot of stops at fast food or even fast sit down food places like Chili’s and Fridays, this app is literally a life saver. It contains the nutritional information for a great number of items on a pretty wide selection of major fast food and fast sit down restaurants menus. Next time you go to order that double slab of processed beef for your little one, you can check to see how much fat and other junk is in it and possibly make a better choice. Since knowledge is the first and most powerful weapon you can use when it comes to eating right I like this application a lot… and it’s free!!!
