On paper, losing weight is pretty straightforward: Burn off more calories than you take in. Easy peasy. Right?
Wrong. In the real world, we all know that losing weight can be tough. Life is hectic, and maintaining your motivation for success is hard. Especially when your friends want to eat out all the time and your coworkers bring cheesecake to the office.
Luckily, now there are tons of apps out there designed to help us stay on track. We've rounded up three of the best. One for when you shop, one for when you eat, and one for when you exercise.
You might think that the first step to losing weight starts at the gym, but that's not actually true. In reality, losing weight starts at the grocery store. If you're loading your cart with unhealthy snacks like cookies, chips and popcorn - well, you're in trouble. Then again, healthy organic food typically costs more.
But that's what makes BerryCart so great. It's a free app that works in three parts. First, it helps you find deals on the best organic, gluten-free, or non-GMO foods near you. Then, it provides information on the healthy products you're buying. And finally, it lets you earn cash back and gift cards each time you shop, which means you're basically getting paid to eat healthy.
That might sound too good to be true, but more than 100,000 major retailers like Whole Foods have joined with BerryCart to make this possible. Try it out, and begin earning points for eating healthy.
