Sticking to a diet can definitely be a tough goal, even for the strictest of people. Having an app that can help you along your way of tracking your daily calorie intake and giving you good advice as to what food you should eat is a great tool that should be utilized. The Keto Diet is essentially a low carb diet. The whole idea behind the Keto Diet is that the body produces ketones in the liver for energy. So when you eat something high in carbs, your body will produce glucose and insulin. Both of these contribute to more fat being stored in your body, and less being burned. So when you are starting off on a Keto Diet, the most important thing to remember is that you should not be eating a lot of carbs.
The most important thing when making this list of the best apps for the Keto Diet, is that it could tell you whether what you were going to eat was a good choice or not. I thought that for a lot of people, especially those that are just starting out on the diet, it would be a good tool to know whether or not the food you were about to eat is a good pick or not. Not only will these apps help you along your way in terms of what you should eat, they will also help track what you have eaten, and give you a good estimate as to what you should eat for the rest of the day. Without a doubt, if you want some help along the way with your diet, these apps will be the best starting point for a Keto Diet. Here are what I consider to be the top apps to help you with your Keto Diet.
- Carb Manager – Keto and Low Carb Diet Tracker
This first app on the list claims to be the world’s easiest and most comprehensive low carb tracker. I would probably have to agree and this app is a perfect tool for anyone trying to maintain a Keto or low carb diet. Carb manager allows you to input your weight loss goals, and it will provide you with your total carb intake on a daily basis. On top of that, you can search nearly one million user and nutrition expert routines to choose from. You can even scan barcodes and check the data for that item on the app.
Carb Manager is the perfect companion for anyone on a Keto Diet. There are a ton of great features that this app has that you can utilize to make your progress towards becoming the you that you want to be. There are many awesome features like low carb recipes, taking pictures of your food, and tracking your water intake. If you are just starting out on a Keto Diet, this is the perfect starting place for anyone.
- My Keto – Low Carb Counter
Much like the previous app, My Keto will help you quickly track your calorie and carb intake. This app is great because it has a calculator built into it that can help track all of your intake and needs based on your age, sex, height, weight, and level of physical activity. This app can even provide you with a meal plan that you can implement and use on a daily basis.
My Keto has a ton of great things for people who are used to the Keto Diet, but I do not think I would recommend this app to someone just starting off on the diet. It might be a little bit too overwhelming, and the resources to teach you about the Keto diet itself are not there. Although, people who just want something bare bones that can help them along will love this app, and for that reason, it takes the number four spot on our list.
- Total Keto Diet
Total Keto Diet will keep you up to date in the Keto world on a daily basis. Every day, hundreds of new pieces of media regarding the Keto Diet are added onto their servers for you to look at. Whether it is new recipes, new news articles, or the latest scientific data, Total Keto Diet will have your back. This app is relatively new, so a lot of the features that some of the bigger apps have are not there yet, but there are a lot of plans to add new content onto the app.
Total Keto Diet gives a different side to the Keto diet than the other apps on this list. And for that reason, it takes the number three spot with ease. The developers are constantly putting in an effort to better the app for its users. By having good social out reach with its community, the app will definitely find itself landing a top spot on the app store for dieting apps in the near future!
- Low Carb Recipes and Diet Meal Plan for Weight Loss
Although this app is not specific to the Keto diet, Low Carb Recipes will definitely help anyone out with their Keto Diet. This app provides you with all that you could possibly need to start a fresh and healthy diet, whether you are on a budget or not.
Low Carb Recipes will even give you step by step video instruction on how to prepare the meals on their app. I definitely enjoy this app because it presents to you all of the recipes in an easy to follow manner that makes cooking easy and enjoyable. The app has all kinds of snacks and deserts, so you are not just focused on the meal side of things.
- Ketogenic Diet
Rounding out the list and taking the number one spot on our list is the Ketogenic Diet app. This app not only provides you with a great meal and exercise plan, but it also gives you the run down on the science behind the Keto diet and all you need to know about the diet itself. I really enjoy this app because it does not leave you with any questions as to what you are getting into, or what you can expect from the diet itself.
Ketogenic Diet will definitely help anyone who is just starting out on the diet, as it provides a lot of great tips aimed directly for beginners. If you are going out to eat, you can even ask this app for Keto friendly suggestions and tips on how to order out so you do not feel left out during these events. The main thing I loved about this app is that it presents both sides to the Keto diet. Like anything, this diet has its pros and cons, and most apps are very pro Keto, and not that this one isn’t, but it gives you the side that you will not hear from the other apps. No matter your level of experience with Keto, Ketogenic Diet is a must have app for anyone who is on the diet and trying to improve themselves.
