App of the Week: Calorie Counter by ShapeUp Club

December 22, 2014

Calorie Counter by ShapeUp Club is an app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch that lets you track what you've been eating on a daily basis over an extended period of time.

If you've ever wondered how your exercise to food intake ratio stacks up, Calorie Counter by ShapeUp Club will show you.  Just plug in your body statistics and you'll receive a daily calorie intake number to help you achieve your preferred weight.

With an ever increasing database of foods and exercise options, Calorie Counter by ShapeUp Club allows you to list foods you've eaten on a daily basis and add up the calories. If you've also engaged in any exercise, you can add those in and Calorie Counter by ShapeUp Club will deduct the calories you've lost from your overall daily total.

A truly nice feature of this application is the option to create your own foods or exercises if they're not already listed in Calorie Counter by ShapeUp Club's database.  This is great for people who might eat unusual foods or participate in non-traditional forms of exercise.

It's worth noting that to truly make use of Calorie Counter by ShapeUp Club and receive personalized tips on what to eat and how to exercise, you need to purchase a ShapeUp Club membership.  As a calorie counter alone though, this application stands out for its myriad of food and exercise options.

App download can be found here.
