Whenever someone talks of health, fitness, and workouts, our tendency is to either avoid the topic or may be sometimes take an offense over it (okay, maybe it’s just me).

We are yet to discover another app, which is so simple to use yet so brilliantly smart. This wonder of an app lets a user record their basic, like weight, BMI, height, etc. to get started. Then the app prompts the user to set a target weight, if the user is specifically looking for weight-loss/gain. After one is done with the set-up of a target weight, the app provides a detailed version of how many calories should a person consume, how many calories should a person burn, how many litres of water should be taken in order to hit the target weight in the selected amount of time. It doesn’t really end at this- it helps people record their daily meals as well, starting with providing them the caloric content of everything, ranging from full-fledged Indian meals to something as small as a hard ball candy.

It is always an added-incentive to one’s runs, if they’re getting something as an award for completing their run in the desired amount of time.

There’s a reason why this app is so famous- unlike other gaming apps, it doesn’t let you become a couch potato when you’re playing it.
