Apps We Highly Recommend
Out of all the apps we’ve tested below, there are a few that stand out:
1. MacroFactor – Best Calorie & Macro Tracker
At 50% of the cost of MyFitnessPal, it has far greater functionality and accuracy. It’s the most customizable tracker on the market, it constantly adapts to your metabolism, it’s easy to use, and it’s updated constantly as new scientific evidence or suggestions are presented.
MacroFactor is worth every penny!
2. Noom – Best App For Weight Loss Goals
Noom is excellent if you’ve previously tried to diet and were unsuccessful because you didn’t understand how to make your diet fit your lifestyle. Rather than just helping you track calories, Noom emphasizes behaviors that help you adapt your nutrition so that it feels sustainable. Most users lose between 1-5lbs in their first month.
I can honestly say that Noom is the best nutrition app on the market right now (if your goal is weight loss)
3. Cronometer – Best App For Athletes & Advanced Tracking Capabilities
The biggest draw for Cronometer is how it tracks micronutrients & biometrics (measurements and even your bathroom habits) and creates reports, as well as the ability to put notes in recipes, like details about how to prepare & cook the recipe.
“Cronometer goes way beyond just tracking calories and macros”
