Counting those calories

Posted: April 6, 2016 in Healthy Living

Calories don’t count, right?  Well actually they do!  Besides being active, one of the easiest ways to help to lose or maintain weight is by tracking your caloric intake.  Technology has really made this easy for us.  There are numerous apps for your smartphone that make tracking your caloric intake simple.

One of those apps is called “myfitnesspal.”  Myfitnesspal allows you to enter your start weight and the weight you’re trying to reach and then recommends a maximum daily caloric intake.  The app also maintains an enormous list of foods to help you track those calories.  If your smartphone is equipped with the right sensors the app will also track your steps!

So give it a try.  The app is free and what do you have to lose (except those pesky extra pounds)!
