How to stay healthy? Many studies show that it all starts with your diet. So, we’ve put together a list of 10 awesome apps that can help you add healthy food to your diet in no time!
To start and maintain your healthy lifestyle, it’s important to understand your body’s needs. Your calorie intake depends on a number of factors like age, size, height, sex, lifestyle, and overall general health. So…
Well, it might come as a surprise to some, but it is possible to overeat healthy food. The easiest way to understand the number of daily calories you need to consume is by using a calorie intake calculator. Here are a few you might want to try…
TDEE = Total Daily Energy Expenditure, aka an estimation of how many calories you burn in a day — including exercise. Sure, you could take out your pen and paper, whip up a formula and start calculating (if you really want to do that, here’s a guide), or you can just fill in some of the blanks on TDEEcalculator.net and get your answer in a matter of seconds.
Google Fit is the equivalent of Apple’s Health app. When set up, it tracks your daily walking, biking, and running. It also helps you reach your healthy lifestyle goal by showcasing your journey along the way.
Here’s the best bit — you can connect Google Fit to a number of other apps to get a more complete overview of your activity, calorie intake and even daily meditation minutes. We all know that a big part of inner happiness lies in the combination of an active lifestyle, healthy food and a calm mind combined, right?
Ever heard your fitness friend talking about something called macros, as well as their daily calorie intake? Macros — aka macronutrients — consist of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. So, when you’re keeping track of your macros, you’re counting the grams of proteins, carbs and fats that you’re consuming on a daily basis.
Keeping track of your macros can help you make smart, healthy food choices. In essence, it’s very similar to counting your daily calories, it just takes it one step further.
And, of course, there’s a perfect app for that. It’s called MyFitnessPal and, most likely, it’s the easiest way to understand what you eat and how much energy you get from it.
Concluding everything above, it’s important to remember to stay rational and not worry too much about the three cookies you ate a few hours ago or the amount of jam you put on your pancakes on Sunday morning. Some things in life are meant to be enjoyed.

Found some great smoothie inspo from Instagram and now craving the perfect silky smoothie? Well, there’s an app for that — The Blender Girl! It can save you from the headache of finding that perfect combo for a healthy smoothie cocktail.
Let’s go even deeper into the smoothie topic. For green smoothie lovers, Daily Blends is filled with over 150 recipes to help you find that deliciously energising, healthy mood booster. You can call it healthy food in a glass, suitable for drinking at any time of the day.

Here’s the rub. All of the above are excellent apps for healthy living, that’s for sure. But, sometimes, after a long day at work, or a tiring gym session or maybe just a regular Tuesday — you don’t feel like cooking.
Guess what? There’s an awesome app for that, too!
