If you haven't yet heard, the United States recently passed a national health care bill that, like all things American, is dripping with controversy. The entire process has been riddled with unanswered questions, and Americans are either extremely for it, or extremely against it. Arguments far and wide have been heard from both sides, and many Americans don't really know what to believe about the whole situation.
What's less controversial is that healthy living is beneficial to the well being of our lives. For those of you that own an iDevice, there are plenty of apps out there that assist in this process. From calorie counters to work out routines, there is something out there for every diet and exercise need. Unfortunately, there aren't any apps that I know of that can make sense of the health care bill.
Read on for a few health and fitness apps that we like.
Lose It!: Succeed at weight loss with Lose It! Set goals and establish a daily calorie budget that enables you to meet them. Stay on track each day by recording your food and exercise and staying within your budget.
Gym Buddy: Gym Buddy is the best-looking, most powerful and most versatile workout log on any platform! Frankly, there are better places to get personal training advice than your phone, and trying to do so only detracts from what a great workout log should be. Other apps may include a bunch of stuff you don't need, but they don't give you the stuff you do.
Weightbot: Weightbot is a weight-tracking robot. Whether you are trying to lose (or gain) weight, tracking your progress has never been more fun. Set your goal, record your weight, view your BMI, and see your progress on a beautiful graph. Weightbot was designed for everyone to use.
Pushup Fu: The primary goal of Pushup Fu is to slowly train you to do 100 pushups without stopping. This fitness goal is pretty much the gold standard of fitness tests because it trains not only your strength and endurance, but also your pain threshold.
The Tap & Track: The Tap & Track will allow you to keep track on your calorie by calculating your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and finding the daily calorie needs of your body based on your gender, age, weight and height. The app also considers the type of the job you are into and applies the very well-known Harris Benedict Equation while doing the calculations.
