Helpful Apps to Track Your Weight Loss Goals

Key Takeaways

Key Takeaways:

  • The best app for weight loss depends on your goals in particular, since they cover different areas you can focus on like meal planning, workout routines, and tracking your progress
  • If you need to manage all things related to fitness, consider downloading a more general weight loss tracker app like MyFitnessPal, or even buying a Fitbit watch and using the app
  • Working with a licensed Canadian healthcare practitioner is always a good place to help you achieve your weight loss goals 

Plan meals: Mealime


To achieve a sustainable and healthy diet plan and to give yourself the best chances of losing weight, you need two things: the knowledge of what to eat, and the right combinations of food that you actually enjoy eating. Mealime helps with both!

Start by inputting your food preferences and dietary restrictions into the Mealime app. Once you’re done, Mealime will give you a variety of different meals and snacks to choose from. To make your life as easy as possible, your entire meal plan comes with organized and easy-to-read shopping lists. Just take your phone to the grocery store and you have everything you need via the Mealime app to lose weight.

Good to know: The creators of Mealime understand that not everyone likes to cook, or has the time to commit to lengthy recipes. Therefore, all meals provided by the app take 40 minutes or less so that you can get back to doing the things you love to do.

Create and track workouts: Workout Maker


When you’re trying to lose weight, exercise is important for your overall health and to help you to maintain your muscle mass while you are losing weight. It is recommended that you work out at least a couple times per week.Tracking your workouts is often helpful for staying on track.

Workout Maker helps you accomplish exactly that — simply input your exercise and the number of sets and reps you completed. For cardio workouts like jogging, you can input the amount of time you spent on the workout.

The premium version of Workout Maker also takes all of the guesswork out of which exercises you should do. Simply enter your criteria (such as your fitness goals), level of activity, and current fitness level, then press start. The app will give a variety of helpful exercises that can help you to reach your fitness goals. 

Personal training: CoPilot


Many people prefer to have someone helping them along with their fitness — to optimize workout routines, provide motivation, and make sure they’re sticking to their diet plans. The problem is that not everyone likes going to the gym, and a traditional personal trainer is sometimes an expense that is out of reach depending on your financial situation.

CoPilot lets you get the personal trainer experience without necessarily going to the gym. Pick your favorite coach, tell them about yourself and your goals, and they’ll do all of the planning for you. For example, if you don’t like going to the gym, your CoPilot personal trainer will be able to give you exercise routines that don’t require the use of free weights.

After you begin your workout regimen and diet plan, CoPilot is a handy app to keep in your back pocket. You can message your personal trainer at any time and for any reason — no matter whether you have a highly technical exercise question or you just need a daily dose of motivation to get your workout in.

Activity tracking: Fitbit


When you exercise, there are a lot of helpful metrics that can potentially help you with your weight loss goals.. The problem is that we don’t usually have access to these metrics. For example, we can’t intuitively know how fast our heart is beating during each and every exercise we perform, like when we go on that lunchtime walk.

Fitbit changes that. Fitbit is an activity tracker that helps you gain knowledge surrounding many aspects of your health, including how many steps you take per day, your resting heart rate, the quality of your sleep, and much more. 

The Fitbit app puts all of this information in one easily accessible place and lets you interact with your data in a variety of ways. Like if you’re training for a marathon, most people generally benefit from running many miles with a slower heart rate, rather than fewer miles with a higher heart rate. Fitbit data can help you know how fast your heart is beating during your workout to help keep you on track.

Like most technology, Fitbit isn’t perfect. The app may not count every step you take to absolute perfection, but it’s a fantastic way to get more information about your general health, fitness and physical activity that you otherwise would never have access to.

To use Fitbit, you’ll need to purchase a compatible watch or wearable and wear it throughout the day.

Progress tracking: MyFitnessPal


MyFitnessPal is one of the most robust weight loss apps on the market. It includes many of the features in the apps listed above, such as track your workouts and create diet plans for you, removing the need to use multiple apps to manage your fitness.

MyFitnessPal stands out with its features that are tailored not to just help you with your fitness, but improve your overall efficiency regarding fitness over time:

  • The Food Analysis section allows you to see which combinations of foods, snacks, and meals worked best for you in the past. 
  • The Different Goals By Day section allows you to modify diet plans and workout regimens to match your day-to-day life. So if you work all day Thursday but have no obligations on Friday, you can drastically customize your settings to take it easy on Thursday but put in a lot of effort on Friday.
  • The Community section allows you to interact with other MyFitnessPal members. Although there are a plethora of weight loss communities online, MyFitnessPal is more niche in that everyone using it is motivated enough to be using a specialized app to manage their fitness.

With all the features listed, and more, MyFitnessPal is one of the most comprehensive apps on the market. 


Of course, using apps to help you on your weight loss journey might not be for everyone. In that case, you can speak with a licensed Canadian healthcare practitioner about what might work best for you. You can also start an online visit with Felix to see if you qualify for weight loss treatment.
