Calorie Counter Android App Review

It seems that everyone wants to count their calories these days and now FatSecret has launched a simply designed app that lets you keep track of what you eat.  This app gives you the ability to initiate a healthy lifestyle plan and then monitor that plan, empowering you with the tools you need to lose weight and improve your overall health.  Because it downloads to your Android device, you always have it with you to help you make better choices when it comes to the food you consume.  With this app, you can eat at your favorite bistro or restaurant and still stay within your weight loss goals.  Use it when you shop for groceries, looking up the nutritional values of the brands you buy, with information like the amount of saturated fats, carbs, calories, protein, fibers, and sugar contained in the product.



The app comes with a barcode scanner so that you can immediately gather information about a single product or you can enter a code by hand if there is no bar code.  The calorie counter app does more than just count your calories however.  You can also use it as an exercise and food diary, tag foods that you want to add to your food list, and track your weight.  FatSecret continually is working to update the app so that you can make it a more effective tool in your healthy lifestyle goals and the newest version is now compatible with the tablet format.
