Mobile innovation helps promote healthy weight loss

(NC) Many people struggle with diets and find it difficult to lose weight and keep the weight off. Whether it's an extra five or 10 pounds following an indulgent holiday or a long-term battle with obesity, new technology is making it easier for Canadians to meet their weight loss goals.

While there are a variety of online and mobile tools now available to help monitor and track calories, experts recommend a well rounded approach to achieve healthy weight loss. “It's easier than you think to lose and sustain weight by incorporating good nutrition and exercise along with proper supplementation,” says personal trainer Stephanie Joanne.

“A mobile app like the Bodylogix Personal Coach is simple to follow and guides you through the process with meal plans and step-by-step exercise videos to meet your personal needs, whether you are exercising at home without equipment or at the gym,” Joanne explains. The app also allows the user to easily modify recipes and create shopping lists, making it both customizable and convenient. Combined with the right supplements, like the Bodylogix Jumpstart Kit, Joanne says this is a great way to begin a healthy weight loss program.

She suggests that one key to successful weight loss is the ability to track your progress, which is even easier when the information is available on your smart phone. “I've found that motivation can often be the missing link, so having a personal trainer at your fingertips is a great way to set yourself up for success.”

“Extra weight and body fat around the waistline will not only make it harder to fit into last year's spring and summer wardrobe, but it can put you at risk for health concerns like high blood pressure or heart disease,” Joanne adds.
