Healthy Tip-Best Calorie Counter App

If you are watching the amounts you are eating, there is a lot of information you need to know and choices you want to make as you are shopping or deciding on what you will eat. Amounts are a big issue for me since I don't have a natural sense of serving size. My resource for calories and quantities is going to the internet. Until recently I would always just Google what I was looking for. That was until my husband found this great app for my phone. It is called Calorie Counter by FatSecret. It has many different features. And it is free!


Some of the features are-
- A food diary to plan and keep track of what you're eating.
- An exercise diary to record all the calories you burn.
- A barcode scanner and manual barcode input
- A quick pick to find calorie and nutrition info for your favorite foods, brands and restaurants.
- A diet calendar to see your calories consumed and burned.
- A weight tracker.
- A journal to record your progress.
- Recipes and meal ideas
You can also sync your account online to access your info anywhere, any time.

It is the best I have found. I especially like that you can look up restaurants and find menu items as well as food brands. Calorie Counter is simple to use and has all the cool tools to help you manage what you eat.
