Our phones have become an additional appendage. I know mine is! I won't retrace my celiac story here, but you know I was diagnosed with it. That has definitely required me to be more in tune with my body and what I eat. I've been more aware of my health overall since my diagnosis. Here is a list of my favorite health apps for Android && how I use them.
||1} Rawtarian is a FANTASTIC app full of raw recipes & information. I'm not a rawtarian, but I do try to eat at least 50% raw each day.
||2} RelaxMelodies app has literally been a life saver for me! I suffer from insomnia and this app has helped tremendously! It has a lot of different sounds that you can layer. There's a timer, so your phone doesn't keep playing the app after you fall asleep. I set mine for 30mins and I haven't been awake still when the timer turns the app off yet. My favorite sounds that I have layered are: dryer, rain, city, cat purring
||3} OvuView is my favorite period tracker app. I DO NOT use it for fertility [no more kiddos for this girl!] I currently have menstrual issues, and have to keep a log for my doctor. [Boy this post sure makes me seem like I'm falling apart!]
||4} Bodybuilding.com I follow the Jamie Eason Live Fit weight training program. When I'm in the gym, this app helps if I'm unsure of how to do a new lift.
||5} My Diet Diary I follow calories not to lose weight, but to make sure I am getting ENOUGH calories a day. Eating 50% raw, clean, and gluten free means most of my diet is fruits & vegetables. Some days I struggle to get all my calories in.
||6} Food Diary I have a post about my food diary that I keep. I only use the app version when I'm traveling or away from home and remember something that I need to add to my physical food diary.
||7} Fooducate is a wonderful app to help you when you are unsure of the ingredients of what you're eating/purchasing. It also has a rating system that gives you an idea of how healthy or unhealthy to food is for you.
