Tracking apps



Recommended Posts

Hey y'all I start my preop diet tomorrow and I am looking for a good way to start tracking inches lost. Anyone have any apps or tips/tricks they can share besides using like Excel or something?

I appreciate it, so ready for the loser's bench!

I've been using the Baritastic app, and really enjoy it. It does have measurements as one of its features (though admittedly, I haven't used it), but I mostly use it for logging my meals, Water, etc...

As for inches Stand in front of a mirror in the exact place every month. Take a picture you will be amazed after the months roll by how the pictures change! Kinda your hidden picture log.

I use MyFitnessPal. It's free and it measures a daily food diary, weight, and measurements.

Both these apps are really good. I used My Fitness Pal before the surgery but found that I wanted a bit more bariatric support post-op; especially with my lowered calories. You can easily just not end the day to get the last message of being too low in calories but it helped me more to be with full bariatric support so I am currently on baritastic and I do enjoy it. Only thing I had to get used to was it being only on my phone. Well, had to face tiny phone screen apps eventually lol.

One third option I really liked was Carb Manager. It was pretty simple; less support and less active for that then the other two apps but if you just want something that simply tracks everything and is very user friendly, that one is good too. All are free-you can pay for premium on my fitness pal but I wouldn't pay for what they give you extra.

I use SparkPeople (the website and app). The website lets you track inches, mood, stress, sleep, etc. along with groups you can join with fun challenges like staying up on Water intake and exercise. The tracking for inches and weight also shows in a line graph over time so you can see trending. The app I use mostly for tracking food and status updates along with weight logging (even though I could use the website). I don’t much use the exercise tracker although it has loads of options for it.

Here’s what the weight tracker part of the app looks like. The inches tracker looks the same on the website.

Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but I love paper journals! It may require a little more work for calculations, but I found a cool journal called Commit30, that is set up especially for tracking meals, exercise, and whatever other stats and goals you want.

I use Cronometer and absolutely love it. You can track your foods, make custom foods, track biometrics, Vitamins, exercise etc. I also like all of the charts that you can download and print for your doctor.
