N.B. This is a review of the iPhone app, but there are iPad and Android versions as well.
The Daily Burn Tracker combines everything you need to lose weight and manage your nutritional intake each day. You can track your diet with the food diary, track a workout, and track your weight, all in the one place. Then as you’re going through the motions you can view your progress with some handy visual graphs. Some of us are just more visual and need to “see” our progress in order to continue to motivate ourselves!
To start using Daily Burn, you will want to go through the “get started” section and set up your account. It’ll ask you for the usual 411, including height, weight, and health goals. With this information, it will determine how many calories a day you will want to consume.
Once you’re set up and ready to go, you can do three things – track your nutrition, track your workouts, and track your weight. Tracking nutrition through the Daily Burn app is pretty simple. You do a quick search of their database and bring up whatever it is that you ate. If you upgrade to the Pro version, you’ll also be able to use the iPhone’s camera to scan bar codes and add foods that way.
Tracking your workouts is simple as well – you enter in what you did and for how long, and the app will automatically calculate the calories burned by using your current weight and height. This will provide a more accurate calorie count than the generic ones found in most fitness apps. Additionally, what’s nice about the Daily Burn app is that you can select from some preset workout routines. You select how often you want to do the workout, and then let Daily Burn guide you through the routine. Easy peasy!
Every now and then, weigh in and enter it in on the app. Over time, you’ll be able to see your progress in the graphing section. This is one of the most inspirational parts of any fitness app – seeing how far you’ve come!?
The Daily Burn Tracker is an easy-to-use, foolproof way to keep track of your food intake and workouts. It is simple to navigate, easy on the eyes, and definitely a great way to get started living a better lifestyle. And being a free app, there are truly no excuses!
