10 Best Diet & Nutrition Apps

A good, balanced diet is just as important as exercise when it comes to clean, healthy living. And apps can help you stay on the straight and narrow. For example, check out these eight excellent diet and nutrition trackers that help you shop for healthy food, log your nutrition intake and help you pick and choose a healthy diet plan.

Fooducate (Android, iOS; Free)

Fooducate (Android, iOS) helps you shop and eat healthy by allowing you to quickly pull up nutritional information about food products from barcodes, as well as by helping you make sense of nutritional labels. The app displays a letter grade from A to D, along with a quick summary of nutrition information in plain language, as well as healthy alternative suggestions. If users cook their own meals or eat out, you can also manually enter a meal’s nutritional information. In addition, the app also doubles as an intake, calorie and exercise tracker. A pro subscription removes ads and unlocks additional features.

Shopwell (Android, iOS; Free)

The first step to eating well is shopping well. At least that’s the idea behind Shopwell (Android, iOS), a barcode scanning and shopping assistant app that rates foods and grocery items according to your nutritional needs. ShopWell users create a personalized profile and select from a series of nutritional goals (Heart Disease, Athletic Training, etc), as well as dietary restrictions (Celiac disease, food allergies, vegetarian, etc.). The app then takes these into account and uses them to score scanned grocery items, as well as provide layman-friendly nutritional pointers, and healthy suggestions.

Calorie Counter Pro (Android, iOS; $3.99)

MyNetDiary’s Calorie Counter Pro app (Android, iOS) is a comprehensive food scanner, nutrition log and exercise tracker. The app can scan barcodes for a product’s nutritional information, as well as the option to input custom foods and recipes, with tracking for up to 45 different nutrients. An exercise tracker allows users to enter more than 500 different activities, as well as the option for manual entry of calories burned, with time and distance tracking for walking. In addition, the app also includes planning features for dieters who want to set a target weight and plan out their eating and exercising habits, with the app helping plan out intake and activity for weight loss or maintenance.

Diet Point Weight Loss (Android, iOS; Free)

Diet Point Weight Loss (Android, iOS) aims to help users pick the weight loss program that’s right for them. The app provides details for more than 130 diets in varied categories, complete with detailed shopping lists and meal plans. The app also helpfully notifies you for mealtimes, to help avoid out of control craving and overeating. Whether you’ve decided to try out a low carb diet or want to go full-on caveman Paleo, Diet Point offers plans tailored for you.

Nutrino (iOS; $7.99/mo)

Nutrino is a nutrition goals and meal planning app that is designed to work with other apps and devices to intelligently track your exercise activity and automatically adjust its food recommendations. Users set their nutritional goals (eating healthy, losing weight, building muscle) as well as any dietary restrictions (gluten-free, lactose-intolerant, halal), and Nutrino builds personalized meal plan. Users can further customize this plan by selecting preferred foods and swiping for alternatives, and in addition, they can log in exercise, sleep, and water.

MyFitnessPal (Android, iOS, Windows Phone; Free)

A good exercise regime is nothing without a balanced diet to back it up. MyFitnessPal’s Calorie Counter (Android, iOS, Windows Phone) app helps you out on that front, functioning as an easy to use calorie and nutrients counter with a database that boasts more than 2 million foods (and it’s growing every day). Easily look up and track the foods you’re consuming with the help of a barcode scanner as well as a recipe calculator for inputting custom creations. Track exercises, set diet goals and sync your progress to myfitnesspal.com for free.

Lose It! (Android, iOS; Free)

Lose It! (Android, iOS) is another excellent nutrition and exercise logging tool targeted at those looking to lose a few pounds. Simply enter a few details about yourself such as weight, height and goal weight, and the app will help you come up with a daily calorie budget. The app keeps tracking your food intake easy, with barcode scanners for grocery items, as well as an extensive database of dishes and restaurant meals. The app also has an exercise tracking feature, and can also sync data with other exercise apps to help log your routine.

HealthyOut Healthy Meal Finder (Android, iOS; Free)

HealthyOut Healthy Meal Finder (Android, iOS) helps you stay on your diet even when you’re going out or ordering delivery. The app helps users find healthy restaurant dishes and prepared grocery items nearby, and supports a wide variety of diet plans. The app comes with a wealth of diet and food filters, allowing you to filter by cuisine, ingredients or type of dish. You can also view detailed nutritional information on each meal where available. It’s a great option when you don’t have the time to prepare a healthy meal of your own.

Calorie Counter by FatSecret (Android, iOS, Windows Phone; Free)

Calorie Counter by FatSecret (Android, iOS, Windows Phone) offers a solid package of tools for calorie conscious dieters: a barcode scanner for food nutritional info, a food and exercise diary, a weight chart, and meal and recipe ideas. Additionally, users can also sync their data online to their FatSecret account to access online and across multiple devices.

Waterlogged (iOS; Free)

Finally, we wrap up with a nutrition log for one necessity that nutrition trackers don’t always factor in: water. Waterlogged is a free iOS water log that helps users track their daily water intake. Users can set a daily water intake goal and then log in their water consumption. It’s in the intake logging that it gets particularly neat, as users can snap a photo of their glasses and bottles for easy recording, define custom glass sizes, and the app easily handles volume conversions, allowing you to mix and match intake logs in mL, oz, or L just fine. Going premium unlocks customizable reminders, Fitbit integration, and full access to any features added in the future.
