Trim those Christmas pounds with your iPhone
Weight Watchers Review
by on January 5, 2011
A smartphone-sized helping of the most popular diet in the UK is an apt way for tech-lovers to balance out their post-yuletide glut. The app itself is free to download, but to get beyond the basic functions you’ll need to be signed up to one of Weight Watchers programmes, and have an account on the Weight Watchers site.
Without an account, the app is a bit limited, but does give a solid idea of what account holders can expect. A database of recipes (small in the free app, but large with an account) is included, along with cooking instructions, serving size, cooking time, a difficulty level and of course the all important Weight Watchers Points value (which add up to a daily limit, using the power of maths to ensure you don’t over-indulge). Also included for each recipe is a picture of the finished product, all of which to be honest made us want to eat more rather than less.
Finally, from each recipe you can access a menu which allows you to e-mail the recipe to a friend, add it to your list of favourites or add all the ingredients to a shopping list for a later shop.
A solid taster of an app with some decent first recipes – we’d have hoped to see more free content, but for those of you considering some Weight Watching penance for your Christmas indulgences, an account on the Weight Watcher’s site backed up with this app may be just what the doctor ordered (hopefully only figuratively speaking).
