The 6 best iPhone apps for weight loss


If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you told yourself that you’re going to lose weight as a New Year’s resolution. Congratulations! The bad news is that there’s a good chance you’re going to fail, at least if thousands of personal anecdotes and studies have any weight.

But these days it’s easier to avoid falling into that trap. The iOS App Store is as stuffed with helpful apps for losing weight as I was stuffed with turkey and bread in the aftermath of Christmas dinner.

These are the best of the bunch.

I’m using a couple of these apps, along with an Apple Watch, to track my food and calorie intake along with exercise. I find it helpful to know how much food I’m eating and what the calorie amounts are. So far, I’m doing pretty good. I just need to exercise more.
