what is this episode about?
Most people have some sort of nutrition or fitness app downloaded on their phone. But does it really help you achieve your health goals? Or is it in fact, hurting or limiting your ability to do so?
In this episode I review the pros & cons of these trackers. I review the common types of apps that many people download on their phones including calorie counters, fitness trackers, and professionally guided apps.
I personally do not currently use a calorie counter, and I use fitness trackers sparingly, due to all the “cons” that I review in this episode. I also strongly discourage my clients from using them as well! But that doesn’t mean they are inherently bad to everybody, which is why I think it's important to have this candid conversation of all the pro’s and con’s.
I strongly advise you to engage with these apps and trackers cautiously. And the best advice I can give is to seek professional guidance to see long lasting, personalized, and evidence-based nutrition and fitness results. There are apps that you can track your health progress with the help of a coach for just that! In fact, that's exactly what I do with my clients. Having a coach-mediated app allows all the benefits of tracking, without all the consequences!
If you find that using nutrition or fitness trackers has a negative impact on your physical or mental health, it may be time to delete the app but pick up the phone and make a call to get the professional guidance you need! You can do so by clicking below.
