A must have application for fitness lovers- 'Food'!

Even if you are into a weight gain or weight loss diet, this application will be a boon to you. I am going to introduce a mobile application which helps in our journey to become fit. I have been using this app since a few days and I like it a lot hence this post. I hope this app will be found helpful to you as much as it did to me. 

The application – Food!

Download the free application called calorie, carb and fat counter developed by virtuagym which has the logo of a half sliced apple. This app is available both on android and iOS platforms. The main highlight of this app is that its food database is developed by food nutritionists.

How the application works:

First of all, you’ll have to sign up and login. You can also login using your Facebook or Google account. Then you’ll have an option to enter your date of birth, height and current weight. Next, you’ll be given an option to select from a few options to set your goal say, weight loss, maintain weight, gain weight, build muscles etc. Once you select your desired goal, the application by itself calculates your should – have/could have calorie requirements! In the next option, you can give in the details about the duration in which you’ll have to see this result in yourself. The best feasible time duration is advised by the app itself, which is again a good thing!

This is the first screen that you get once you open the app after login and giving details.

This is the food list. 

Once you do all that, you will be given a screen you can update your food as soon as eat them. Yes, you can give in the measurements and the carbs, protein and fats are calculated by the app. You can find almost all food in their list, if you didn’t find any – do not worry because you can add a food as well. You can even scan the barcode of a store bought product and that makes it even easier! 

You can always check the performance report from the menu as well. 

Overall, I like this app quite a lot and I’m using it on a daily basis. I think this is a must have for every fitness lover. But make sure you use it ;)

N.B: This is NOT a sponsored post. I have being using this application, liked it, found it to be useful and decided to spread the word.

Indian Breakfast Menu Ideas for Weight Gain Diet

When I decided to go for a weight gain plan, I checked out the Indian diet plans as well. But there wasn’t a comprehensive ‘Indian’ diet. So I thought I would prepare one for myself. I drafted this one after going into the details of calories and other nutritional facts. This can act as a guideline for the weight gainers to decide their diet. So these are the seven days breakfast ideas.


Chickpea Salad for Weight Gainers

Chickpeas are very rich in calories. It is said that 100 grams of chickpeas contain approximately 364 calories. This is our special recipe which we prepare during Ramadan Days. It tastes yummy and it is very easy to prepare once you have the cooked chickpeas. You can also use the canned chickpeas which we usually use for preparing hummus. I am planning to have it every other day.
