What should you look for when buying a diet app?

  1. If a diet app is free - chances are you get what you paid for.  Some minimal compensation is needed to cover cost of support. 
     

  2. Search for an app that you can access anytime-anywhere.  Most can't be used online and access to WiFi and satellites is still spotty for most of us.
     

  3. Choose a diet that matches your personal needs.  You should be able to follow & stick to a diet, it should be balanced/healthy, do not just pick a diet that's pretty consider your goal! 
     

  4. So be sure to pick a diet app that fits your lifestyle!  Diet apps should offer convenience, recipe and more likely a combination diet - offering both recipe and convenience choices
