The proliferation of apps on iPhones and Android devices has produced some great fitness apps. Tracking calories and tracking workouts becomes super easy with these apps. But each one has it’s own spin on how they track these activities. The most popular apps that listeners ask about are My Fitness Pal and Lose it!. These apps differ in philosophy from us, so listeners often ask about net calories, eating their exercise calories, etc. They are confused because this app that we recommended doesn’t fall in line with our recommendations. Stephanie wrote in asking this question, along with countless others, so we take a look at the differences between eating and exercising the Fat 2 Fit way and the app way. Also in the email and comments section of the show, multiple listeners wrote in about the Human Weight Simulator. Jeff’s gets geeky on this one and talks all about the tools mentioned.
On the Web Report, Russ talks about the book Wheat Belly. The discussion was spurred on by a post on our Facebook page from listener Terry. She read an article on The Huffington Post about wheat. Jeff talks about the website Pinterest, particularly the posts tagged as “fitness”. The ideal body for women has changed multiple times and currently it looks as though most of the women on Pinterest want to have muscular fit bodies. Meanwhile 50 years ago, instead of going on a diet, apparently we were interested in adding “flesh” to our skinny bodies.

“Tell me what you eat, and I shall tell you what you are.” – Jean Brillat-Savarin
From Pinterest in the fitness section:
- “Sweat is fat crying”
- “Exercise to be fit, not skinny. Eat to nourish your body and always ignore the haters, doubters and unhealthy examples that were once feeding you. You are worth more than you realize.
