Clean and easy to use interface, meal plans, good knowledge
Some of the UI elements seem outdated aesthetically, some features are locked behind a paywall
When it comes to wanting to control your weight, having a useful tool can make all the difference. Nutritionist+ for Android is an app that isn’t just a calorie tracker, but also your own sort of personal trainer. It can help you set calorie goals, track your meals, and even plan your meals for you.
The first time you open up this app, you’ll need to create an account. Unfortunately, it just doesn’t seem like there is a way to use it otherwise. When you create a new account, you’ll be prompted to enter information about your body composition so the app can use that to create a profile for you. Once you set your goals, whether it’s weight gain, muscle gain, fat loss, or weight loss, you’ll then be taken to the main menu. Here you have a number of different options.
If you’re interested in trying to figure out how many calories you should eat for a certain meal then the meal plan can help you do that. It will tell you how many calories, grams of protein, and other information you’ll need. It can also give you a list of foods you could eat that would be appropriate, though it doesn’t have any built-in recipes. The meal tracker acts as a food journal to help you keep how many calories you’re consuming in mind.
One of the app’s best features is its Tips. This is a surprisingly good list of information about how to control your weight that isn’t full of fitness fad advice, and instead features information rich articles to help you get started.
The only real area of improvement Nutritionist+ needs stems from its UI. It’s clean and easy to use, but it looks really outdated, and looks like it was ported directly from iOS, which it probably was. Other than that, this is a great way for people serious about getting in shape to do just that.
