Diet is the key to being healthy, boosting your immune system and making your body work properly. Coupled with sport and a healthy lifestyle, it is the insurance to give everything you need to your body so that it is at its best. So if you do not necessarily have the time to concoct homemade dishes and count all the carbohydrates in every bite of bread, this selection of applications is for you!
Although eating well at first seems simple, it is a bit more complicated to know what is really in the products we buy, especially processed foods and other frozen foods. The applications we will present will teach you to balance your own meals, to have details on what they contain or to better follow your specific diet (flexitarian, gluten, vegan …).
Yuka, the smart food app
This is the best known and probably the most practical nutritions application. It is very easy to use: just scan the barcode of a product found in a shop or supermarket and the application notes its composition on a scale from 1 to 100 while indicating the ingredients bad for the health.
