How to Find the Best Diet App for You

As we enter 2014, there are more nutrition apps than ever before, and the newest ones do far more than just count calories. The most high-tech apps measure exercise, allow you to compete with friends, sync with your bathroom scale, and help you set custom goals based on how much weight you want to lose and your desired timeline (very helpful for weddings and vacations!). Of course, almost all come with expansive calorie libraries and are also able to scan barcodes to read the nutrition information of everything from a box of Oreos to your Trader Joes broccoli. We’ve listed our favourites—and why we like them—above.
