1. Calorie Counter and Fitness Tracker by MyFitnessPal


Celebrated by Wired magazine as a top lifestyle app, the Calorie Counter and Fitness Tracker by MyFitnessPal is a must-have for all Canadians trying to lose weight. The reason? Unlike many other apps, MyFitnessPal is loaded with Canadian content. Its extensive food database contains over three million products, including items from Canuck favourites President’s Choice, Tim Hortons, Metro, Sobey’s, Longo’s and Swiss Chalet. Part food diary, part exercise tracker, the MyFitnessPal app lets you keep detailed records of every food eaten and workout completed. Add multiple items within a single meal, view graphs of nutrients consumed and see how many calories you have remaining each day to help you reach your weight-loss goal.
