Recording your diet and accounting for the nutrients you consume is an important part of the routine of anyone wanting to do a diet, lose / gain weight, or simply live a healthier life. Apps that help with this task are coming in, but a new option, recently arrived on the App Store, will warm the hearts of those who like to do it in a simple and intuitive interface – I'm talking about Calory.
The app, which arrived at the App Store last October, has a very simple look and premise: Just enter the calorie goal you want to eat each day – the app can suggest your goal, according to age, weight and body level. activity – and start logging your meals and snacks. A large circle with polka dots occupies much of the app's interface; As you eat throughout the day, the circle fills up, representing the calories you eat.
The options for adding these calories are many: you can add a specific numerical value directly (if you eat a meal in a package and the calorie count is specified there), you can record the meal you have just made, or you can create custom dishes to add. them quickly to your journal – without having to hunt element by element of your lunch, for example.
Calory also has a water intake log to keep you hydrated and fully integrated with Apple's Health platform. This lets you read your exercise calories and subtract them from your daily count, as well as capture your weight based on the information you add in the Health app. All your progress is saved in iCloud, and you don't need to create a separate account to use the app.
To improve, Calory has apps for iPhone, iPad and Mac – the latter, based on Mac Catalyst and with a very nice interface too. It can be downloaded for free from the App Store, but its free version has limited features; To unlock the full power of the app, you need to make a monthly subscription of $ 7.90 (or annual $ 57.90) or purchase perpetual access to the app, which costs $ 74.90.
