There are hundreds of health and fitness apps on the market. So, which one should you choose? We can’t answer that question for you as we do not now what your goals are, or what you want to know. But we can tell you about the apps which we use and why we like them.

My Fitness Pal

This app is built by Under Armour, you can set your current weight, your target weight, your weekly goal and your activity level. The app will then calculate how many calories you should eat and you can add your food intake to your diary. The app counts down your calories so you know when to stop to meet your goals.

It can incorporate your activity levels from devices such as Fitbits, tracks your progress and offers a variety of information from useful blogs.

It is great if you want to count your calories, or just know the amount of calories that are in food before you eat it. It’s a great way to make better decisions about what to eat but I have known a few people become obsessive about it.

The New Year is a good time to give your liver a rest after the festive season. It is the biggest organ in your body and works very hard to try and keep us healthy. Its main functions include:

  • Breaking down and eliminating toxins including alcohol.

  • Balancing blood sugar by storing and releasing glycogen. If the liver fails to do this, fatigue, sugar cravings and weight gain may result.

  • Producing bile, which helps digestion by breaking down fat and removing excess cholesterol. Without it digestive disorders can result, including bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, nausea and the malabsorption of fat-soluble vitamins.

  • Breaking down and eliminating excess hormones.

  • Storing nutrient such as iron, copper, vitamins A, B12, D, E and K.

Tips to rejuvenate your liver:

  • Drink alcohol in moderation and avoid ‘saving up’ allowances to drink in one day.
