MapMyRun (Free)

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

Once in a while, I will stumble on an app at what seems like the most inopportune time, but it turns out to be highly beneficial anyway. That's how I found MapMyRun from MapMyFitness. I actually happened upon this app when I saw their ad while playing a game in my doctor's waiting room. The company is certainly no stranger to the App Store; since their inception in 2007, MapMyFitness has released several apps dedicated to fostering connected fitness among the public.

Weight loss app presents calorie information as 'exercise equivalents'

PHOENIX / The mobile weight loss app, Exercise Calorie Converter by AthleteInMe.com®, aims to help users make decisions by showing the time needed to burn the calories in common restaurant menu items.

“Many people understand how calories affect their diet,” says Stan Reents, PharmD, president and CEO of AthleteInMe.com®. “But almost no one realizes how long they have to exercise to burn-off those same calories.”

Researchers at Johns Hopkins, University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill and Texas Christian have all validated this principle, showing that, when consumers view calorie amounts in the form of “exercise equivalents,” they make better selections.

image

It’s time to get healthy! Isn’t that what the New Year is all about? People often take the time as the New Year rolls around to examine their lives, assess the things they would like to change, and turn over a new leaf. Often, one of the things on the list is health. And one of the best ways to stay healthy is to count your calories and maintain your weight. Your iPhone has your back. The App Store has a plethora of calorie-counting and weight-tracking apps, so manythat it may seem overwhelming. Have no fear, I have your back on this one. I’ve been an avid calorie counter since before electronic devices were invented to count calories.
