It's official, summer is here. Time for days at the beach and afternoons by the pool: in other words, for many people, it's time to shape up. When it comes to staying bikini ready, my iPhone is my best friend. I have apps that help me track of my calorie intake, sign up for classes at my gym, and track my heart rate. But recently I've added a new app to my fitness arsenal, My Diet Coach - Weight Loss for Women (Free). My Diet Coach takes a totally different approach to dieting; this isn't a calorie counter or fitness tracker.

Until you decide to make a commitment, it’s nice to use a free app to help keep track of your activity. Even though I use my Fitbit, I thought I’d test out an app for you iPhone Lifers because I’m a caring guy, and I like to help people (I also have a slight obsession with fitness apps).
