You cannot deny you spend an awful lot of time tapping away on your phone. You may have a lot of important information tucked away in that little device: memos, birthdays, notes and other reminders. Since you spend so much time on your phone, how about you try and use it to help you lose weight. Here are a few ways to use your cell phone to lose weight:
Download an Exercise App
Instead of texting friends all day, download an exercising app. You can find a wide range of apps. If you cannot afford a personal trainer, download an app that provides instructions for exercises and how to go about your daily routine. One cannot get enough of tips and tricks.
An exercising app will keep you updated and informed at all times. If you do not have a personal trainer, an exercising app will provide you information on how to work out, all in the comfort of your own home.
Keep a Track of Your Calories
Your phone can now help you track your calories. Some phones have calorie trackers, like the iPhone. You can always download an app if you are using another phone. Using trackers will help you track your daily calorie intake and remember, no cheating! If you have decided to lose weight, you need to learn to be honest with yourself. Honestly record your weekly calorie intake. Keeping a track of your calorie intake will keep you from overeating.
Use Your Phone as a Diary
Another effective way to lose weight by using your phone is to use it as a diary. Write down your weekly goals, expectations, feelings and other details. You may be surprised but writing about your experiences makes you aware of how many calories you are eating. By writing down your feelings, both your body and mind get used to the idea of losing weight.
Get a Phone Buddy to Stay Motivated
It is probably a good idea you get yourself a phone buddy. This way, you will have somebody to talk to when you feel like you need to rant or when you feel like giving up your diet. A phone buddy’s duty is to send you constant reminders to stick to your diet plan. Constant nudges to eat healthy and exercise have proven to help countless people to lose weight. The next time you feel like overeating, make sure you have somebody who can talk some sense into you.
