Calories 2 icon

Calories 2

If you’re trying to keep to a diet, or simply wanting to eat less, then Calories 2 can help you achieve this. It logs the calories in the food you’re eating from its database of over 10,000 foodstuffs and allows you also to enter exercise information that you do. The app will then analyse your eating habits and gives you motivating tips on how to lose weight. The app has recently been upgraded to version 3 which explains the drop in the price of the previous version however if you’re hankering after the latest version, the developers are also running a introductory promotion on Calories 3 ($9.99 instead of $29.99).

Optimism integrates with a wide range of health providers and can help towards creating a wellness plan, which documents strategies and gives the appropriate steps to be taken in case of any illness.
