Studies show that exercise alone is not enough to sufficiently fuel weight loss; your diet plays a role as well. But we don’t mean fasting or the latest food fad—just consciously thinking about putting the healthiest, freshest foods into your body (with some dessert here or there).
Staying aware of what you are eating can be done by keeping a food journal, or as many choose to do, tracking your food with an app. Food tracking apps, such as MyFitnessPal and My Food Diary, can be great—but tedious. Having to manually fill in every meal can be a long process. If you forget to log one day’s worth of meals, it can be hard to remember what you ate and easy to decide to skip keeping track of your food.
FitClick knows the arduous process that can be keeping track of your meals, so they have provided the solution: a talk-to-track calorie app. How does it work? Once you have the app, you click the microphone icon on your keyboard, say what you ate and let the app do the rest. It enters your meals and finds the calorie counts for you.
“The key to weight loss and fighting obesity will be making diet tracking a highly accessible, integrated part of a user’s daily routine,” shares James Mrowka, President and Co-Founder of FitClick. “When individuals have the right information at hand, such as the sugar, caloric and fat content of what they’re eating, and when keeping track of this information on a daily basis is made easy, there’s far more incentive to stay in the weight loss game.”
