Popular Weight Management Programs 2022

Our Healthy Lifestyle

When it comes to weight management apps, you have numerous options to choose from. 

If you’ve ever tried to manage your weight, you probably already know how tough it can be. No matter what tactics you try, tracking progress is the key to achieving your fitness goals. This is exactly what weight management apps help you with. By offering customized weight management plans, nutrition and activity trackers, diet-specific tools and tips, food databases, and fitness classes, they help you stay on track, get your body moving, and possibly shed those pounds you’re looking to lose.

When it comes to weight management apps, you have numerous options to choose from. Let’s take a look at the most popular weight management programs:

Weight Watchers

Designed to supplement its effective dietary plan, Weight Watchers has been helping health-conscious individuals lose weight for decades. Making the most out of digitization, it puts the resources you need right at your fingertips. You have a comprehensive database of rated foods that rely on the app’s point system. The emphasis here is more on complete awareness of what exactly you eat and less on calories.

The program begins with a 2–3-minute personal assessment requiring your age, height, weight, physical activity, and gender. Based on your responses, it gives you a personalized SmartPoints Budget and recommends an eating style (Blue, Purple, or Green) that best matches your needs. Each color represents a unique balance of specific foods. To achieve the best results, you must track and stick to them.

Apart from the great food tracking database, the Weight Watchers app includes a barcode for scanning food items when at the grocery store, over 9,000 healthy recipes, and a chance to obtain expert advice from a diet coach. You have three pricing plans, including:

  • Digital – You only have online access; starts from $3.23.
  • Workshop – Digital access plus weekly workshop meetings- Price depends on your location.
  • Coaching – Digital access plus communication with a coach; starts from $10.39.
    • Prices subject to change

Noom

Noom is among the most recognized weight management apps out there that assists users and helps them lose weight by prompting sustainable lifestyle changes. Like WW, Noom starts by obtaining answers to specific health-related and lifestyle questions and uses the information to assign you a daily calorie budget. Not only do you get a database of 3.5 million foods to track your food intake, but the app also allows you to monitor exercise, weight, and even health conditions like blood sugar levels.

…before making any major changes to your exercise or diet routine, listen to what your doctor has to say about it.  

Besides this, the program also offers virtual health coaching that guides you on mindful eating practices and offers motivational quizzes and reading material. You can choose between a monthly recurring plan that currently costs $59/month and a yearly recurring plan that costs $199/year (prices subject to change.)

Lose It!

This app features a simple, user-friendly interface and is focused on weight loss, calorie counting, and community support. To get started, you’ll need to set your health goals, based on which the app develops a customized weight loss plan for you. The plan not only suggests a daily calorie intake, but also provides food recommendations.

You benefit from a database of over seven million food items, but you aren’t limited to it. The program allows you capture an image of your food or scan the barcode of packaged foods too. On top of that, with the help of the daily and weekly progress reports, it makes weight loss tracking remarkably easy.

While the app is free to download, you’ll need to either sign up for the yearly premium account for apx. $39.99/year or pay $9.99 to access some premium features for a limited period (prices subject to change.)

Cronometer

Whether you’re new to active dieting or an avid calorie counter, the Cronometer app makes your life considerably easy. With your free account, you can access an extraordinary amount of nutrient-tracking information to achieve your health goals. Instead of only helping with calorie targets, the program closely monitors your macronutrient goals, while also providing a comprehensive nutrient summary that includes minerals, protein, vitamins, lipids, vitamins, and carbohydrates.

Mother and daughter doing yoga

All you need to do is sign up, answer a few intro questions, and set your goals. The homepage will display a breakdown of daily calories and your food diary. You should be able to see the number of calories you’ve consumed, burned, and those that remain. Every time you add a food item, the app provides you with the complete nutrient summary for your specified serving size.

This program is also free to download, but again, you may want to upgrade to the Gold plan that currently costs $5.99/month or $34.95/year (prices subject to change.)

Conclusion

In summary, the most popular weight management programs do charge a fee for top recommendations. Most allow you to track your eating habits and weight loss progress for free. While each of the app discussed above offers incredible value to your fitness and health, don’t rely entirely on them. Before making any major changes to your exercise or diet routine, listen to what your doctor has to say about it.
