The idea of counting calories always seemed like a pain in the ass, tbh. With the Fitbit and Apple watches of the world all seem great to help jumpstart a healthy mind and lifestyle, they’re not ideal for the money conscious population. Out of curiosity, I decided to download Fooducate, a free app, and am surprised to say that I’m not only more educated about what I put into this body of mine but slightly addicted to this new life(style).
For those who share my struggle…the fast food/ junk food addiction, I’m sure you can imagine how hard it is to see your favorite food rated with the lowest food grade (graded on an A through D scale). It’s not that we aren’t aware of how bad the food is that we put into our bodies, but we’re not aware of what they can do to us. In the app’s nutrition tab, it tells you what alarming ingredients are in your food but also offers better food suggestions.
Guys, let me just tell you… I’ve struggled with maintaining a healthy weight for my size but being able to monitor what I eat singlehandedly put everything into proportion and I’m on my way to my (now foreseeable) weight goal.
Fooducate makes it truly easy and with that being said, I dare you all to try it. If the intention is not to lose weight but to become more educated, there’s nothing to lose! Cheers x
