Advertisement
The most common New Year's resolutions for 2011 are nothing new: lose weight, shape up, or make some other positive changes for healthy living. But this year, the help you need to reach your goals (and more) is right at your fingertips—literally. Here, 10 new smartphone and iPad apps to get you revved and help you stay on track with your goals for 2011. The best part: They're all cheap or free. No excuses!

Best Apps to Eat Better

New App #1: Tap & Track
This comprehensive app calculates exactly how many calories you should be eating each day, factoring in things like your job to determine how active you are. You enter what you're eating and how much you're exercising, and Tap & Track creates graphs that make it easy to see your progress, even if the scale doesn't dip that day.
Available for: iPhone, iPod touch, iPad
Cost: $3.99

New App #2: Google Goggles
Snap a picture of a food label on your smartphone and this app tells you everything you want (or maybe don't want) to know about that product: Nutrition information, the company's website, where it's sold, and more.
Available for: Android, iPhone
Cost: Free

GROCERY LIST: 15 foods to have in your kitchen at all times

New App #3: Seafood Watch
Use this new app created by the Monterey Bay Aquarium to choose fish that's good for you and for the environment. Don't know your toro (tuna) from your sake (salmon) on the sushi menu? No worries. The app lists fish by their Japanese names as well.
Available for: iPhone, iPod touch, iPad
Cost: Free
