Apps that Help You Stay Healthy

Apps that Help You Stay Healthy
25 June 2018
Who’d ever imagine that one of our very best friends in health, would end up being our mobile phones? Nowadays, going for a run feels somewhat pointless without strapping on a monitoring device, opening an app, or uploading your statistics.

Here are our top five apps that’ll help you stay healthy:

Fooducate
Your health begins with what you put into your body, and Fooducate helps you make good food choices. By tracking your meals, exercise, and other activities, Fooducate helps you set – and work towards achieving – your health goals. Fooducate also grades food, by defining its nutritional grade for you, and helps you choose healthier alternatives when required. Fooducate is available for iPhone and Android devices.

Couch to 5k
You don’t want to run a marathon, but you would like to put some kilometres behind you. If you’re not sure where to begin when it comes to running, Couch to 5k is the best starting point. Taking you through a simple beginner’s running programme, Couch to 5k will help you get off the couch and get moving.

Sleep Cycle
Rest is just as important as exercise, and Sleep Cycle helps you make sure you’re getting a good night’s rest. The app tracks your sleep cycles throughout your snoozing and wakes you up at the right time for your body. That means you’ll wake up feeling the most refreshed, and ready to tackle whatever comes your way.

Fit Radio
Every workout needs a soundtrack, and Fit Radio creates one for you, depending on your mood, activity, or personal preferences. While the free version of the app only lets you configure your preferences for one music genre, the paid version unlocks countless mixes, stations, and genres. Fit Radio is one app we don’t mind paying for.
