Review: MyNetDiary, Lose Weight Using The iPhone

If you want to lose weight, want to follow a diet plan or plan your meals by calories MyNetDiary is a nifty app to lose weight using the iPhone.

If you are looking for a Miracle weight loss technique, a Diet pill or a Protein shake to help you lose weight, then MyNetDiary app is not the right answer. However, if you are willing to lose weight the old-fashioned way by eating less and exercising more, then MyNetDiary can help.

Whether you are trying to lose weight or maintain a target weight, you have to keep the
Calories consumed less than the Calories burned daily through exercise and activity

With 3 to 4 meals and snacks consumed daily, figuring these calories out can be a boring task for anyone. Fortunately, the MyNetDiary app takes away the drudgery in these steps.

The app makes it simple to setup a plan to reach your target weight by a target date. Based on your current weight and target weight (by a target date), it will display a daily calorie budget for you. Then, you update the app daily with the actual foods eaten and the amount of exercise done. The app tracks your calories consumed and calories burned on a daily basis and shows you where adjustments need to be made. The app also makes recommendations of the type of foods you should consume which will help meet your goals.

Many people set up a diet plan but then never follow it because the steps get tedious. MyNetDiary is an excellent way to stay disciplined about eating and exercising, track your progress on a daily basis and reach your goals.  

Now, if you are lax and do not enter your eaten/exercised numbers in the app daily, then the app will not be useful. And, if you already do 30 to 60 minutes of aerobic exercise each day, eat wholesome meals full of vegetables, grain and fruits, then you will naturally keep a good weight and watching the calories is not needed.

Like MyNetDiary, Lose It is another app on the Appstore to help you lose weight.
