Losing weight is easily one the biggest struggles anyone can undertake, no matter what weight they started at. A lot of the time, you don’t have any direction as to what you should and shouldn’t avoid, unless you see a registered dietician. Most people don’t, however — and it’s likely because their health insurance doesn’t cover visits to a dietician in the first place. They’re seen as less important than, say, an oncologist or a cardiologist.
While I’m certainly not suggesting that these two apps could replace a medical professional in any capacity, they can give you a nudge in the right direction. Lose It! and MyFitnessPal are two of the biggest weight loss apps in the business, and for many good reasons. Both apps are also quite distinct from one another, however.
