What are the best calorie counting and exercise trackers


Being a fitness gadget lover I get excited about a shiny new toy. It spurs me on to be a bit more healthy and to keep track of my diet and exercise. I’m more of a believer in a holistic approach than solely the simplistic principle of calories in versus calories out. I do however find it helpful to track my food intake. It makes me more mindful of what I’m eating, and gives me a little boost to see what exercise I’ve done that week. Not that its always recorded but its good to go back to it if I find myself slipping…so I’ve compiled this list of food and exercise resources that I have used or found helpful.

Food databases and calorie trackers:

  2. Great list! I’ve used a punch of them. RunKeeper is also pretty cool and GymPact lets you bet yourself you’re going to work out and make money!

  3. Lorna Jane app (for us Aussie’s!)
