I had been struggling with weight problems for several years and was at my wit’s end. During these twelve months, I had tried all manner of “it” diet plans designed by highly recommended dietitians, but nothing seemed to work.
However, I can’t really blame anyone, I simply wasn’t self-motivated enough to control my craving for high-fat, high-calorie foods.
When diet plans, supplements and exercises didn’t seem to work one me, at least not for long enough, I decided to turn to my smartphone, my one faithful companion throughout my ordeal. I downloaded some health apps and experimented with them.
As it turned out, that was the best decision I had ever taken, as these apps have been very useful in helping me track my calorie intake; plus they are so fun to use and you get to network with others too!
