Another phone app that I love is MapMyFitness. It will track nearly any type of fitness activity and show you your mileage, altitude change (if appropriate), and estimated calorie burn. When you first set it up, you put in your personal stats so it can calculate the calorie burn. I personally find it very rewarding to view a map of my hike, walk, or run and see my exact mileage. :D

those apps sound interesting.
I'll have to look at them soon and see if they'd be a valuable addition.

My friend bought 'my symptoms' because she's having some intestinal distress, and it allows for tracking of food, and other things that keep track of what sorts of symptoms are related to food consumption, so she and her healthcare professional can analyze it.

OMG - I *Love* Fooducate! Just obtained it over the weekend and have so far avoided several foods that had hidden issues: GMOs, "natural flavorings (which can be really bizarre, you know skunk is "natural"...), and it even offered a recipe for a homemade granola bar healthier than my favorite Pure Organic bar.

I just downloaded one called "The Habit factory" - you set up goals and habits.....
I have just read so far and have not set up any habits yet. Not specifically food related but can be if you had habits you wanted to monitor.

"There's a difference between knowing the path and walking the path." Morpheus in The Matrix

"Failure is only postponed success...The habit of persistence is the habit of victory." -Herbert Kaufman

Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do."
- Pope John XXIII

Hey, I just recently downloaded the app for my smartphone - fooducate. It's super handy and uses a barcode scanner to tell you what store-bought items are actually healthy for you, and if they actually contain whole grains and whatnot. It even gives a suggestion of what alternatives you could have instead.

Are there any other smartphone apps that are useful for eating healthy?

If you focus on results, you will never change, but if you focus on changing, you will see results.
