Top five apps for men’s health


Taking care of yourself is an important, but a frequently overlooked part of life. While both men and women often juggle careers and family life—men tend to be more apt to push maintaining a healthy lifestyle to the bottom of the priority list. When you’re not at your top physical or mental state of mind, other areas of life can begin to suffer. It’s important to maintain a healthy weight, get a good night’s sleep and cook healthy meals that will nourish your mind, body and spirit. Check out this list of five great health-focused apps for men on the go to help improve overall fitness!

My Fitness Pal – A great all-around app, My Fitness Pal offers easy calorie tracking while connecting you with your friends. If you’re motivated by competition, you can participate in challenges to push yourself and friends to earn bragging rights, while getting healthier. Set a calorie goal and start logging food, water, exercise and weight to keep track of your progress and share with your support group. Features such as product scanning and a large database to choose from make it easy to add food to your daily diary.
